DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Showing no signs of slowing down, a 98-year-old Ohio man is starting his own consulting firm for the next generation of entrepreneurs.

Nick Sabatino plans to launch Say It With An Idea, a business that will use the wealth of knowledge from retirees such as former businessmen, artists and politicians to help guide new innovators, the Dayton Daily News (https://bit.ly/2qEAov7) reported.

Sabatino, of Centerville in suburban Dayton, said the concept is simple.

“No businesses, no presidents, all owners,” he said. “We’ll communicate with Skype and our only products will be ideas.”

His group will give input and advice on client’s ideas. The group will then connect clients with people in that business, such as interior designers or experts in digital media to make those ideas a reality.

Sabatino and his wife told the Daily News they do not want to waste their wealth of knowledge in their later years. As for upcoming entrepreneurs, Sabatino had his own piece of advice.

“Just start doing it,” he said. “Whatever your idea, just start.”

Sabatino, a former advertising executive, now sells children’s books through his own website. He was involved in a variety of endeavors in his earlier life, from traveling to Africa with former congressman Tony Hall to publishing a children’s book about a popular Centerville doughnut shop.

Jody Sabatino said even though her husband is legally blind, he is still a person who never quits.

“He still wakes up in the middle of the night with the most brilliant ideas,” Jody Sabatino said.
