The equity you’ve accumulated gives you options that can increase your wealth. You can use payments from a reverse mortgage—or money from selling your home, if you plan to downsize—to supplement retirement income.

If you are smart and open minded, you will assemble a team during the test running of your idea because few will see potential in your idea and will want to be part of it.
