You’re never too old to be an entrepreneur

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. 

-C. S. Lewis 

Sometimes I feel like I wasted a lot of time in my early days and that I might be running out of time to reach all my goals. Have you ever felt the same?

Then I saw this piece & infographic on Entrepreneur.com and loved it.lost-in-life

The article mentions that after 40 there is still plenty of time to start your own business. In fact, if you start a little later in life,  you have the advantage of your previous work experience and the discipline that you learned there under your belt. You can’t short cut this life experience.

So fear not my friend, you still have time. Look at these examples for inspiration and know that anyone – young or old – can have a shot at building the life and new business venture they desire.

You’re never too old to be an entrepreneur.

Famous Entrepreneurs Who Weren’t Too Old:

  • Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonald’s started after 52
  • Sam Walton was 44 when he started the first true Wal-Mart in 1962.
  • Mary Kay Ash, sold books and home decor objects until she was 45 before starting Mary Kay Cosmetics.
  • Harlan Sanders turned 62 before he opened the first Kentucky Fried Chicken.

So don’t wait too long.

Commit to whatever it takes to make your new venture successful.

  • Do your homework.
  • Seek advice and guidance from experienced business owners.
  • Train to develop the skills you need on your new venture.
  • Get out there and find the resources and connections.
  • Use your experience to advantage.
