Comment: If you are over 50, you are over the hill when it comes to finding a job

I'm an old bag, and it's official. For the first time since I left college at the age of 19, I have become self-conscious about my age, which for the record is a spritely 52. Until recently, I thought of myself as forever 25. The years have passed without costing me a thought. I proudly turned 50 with the attitude: "Bring it on. I have loads more to contribute."
I have been happily self-employed (by choice) for the last seven years, after more than a quarter of a century of fulfilling permanent work.
As a self-employed person, I have loved the freedom of being my own boss and having the flexibility to do interesting things.
