Though I enjoy the stories of young entrepreneurs, I feel reading too many skews a person’s expectations of success and getting rich quick…then they give up when it doesn’t happen. Stan Lee was 39 when he created Spider-Man.
I’d like to hear more stories about older people who have broken out of their routine life to pursue their dreams: the man who was laid off from the auto industry and learned to code or the woman who decided open a consulting business after being miserable at her day job.
Don’t give up because you aren’t young and successful. You have your entire life to try.
