First start by focusing more into solutions and less on the problem. 59 years old is not old, it's just right for opportunity and experience. If you are not aware of your strengths and the things you do well, I suggest you visiting a local workforce or educational institution and ask for a car...

Great question. The answer to this may depend on what exactly you mean "technical talent" - My guess is that, given the context, you are referencing software development/programming in some capacity. In which case, the first thing I would ask yourself (before "how do I hire someone locally i...
