Harvard Business Review publishes an article in 2018 that highlighted the average for start up businesses. While most would assume that age is in the 20s, research shows that age is in the 40s.
For some that may be a shock and for others a pleasant surprise, The writer provides several reasons for this. The bigger issue, however is not what the ideal age is to start a business venture. It is knowing that regardless of your age you have the capacity to achieve great things.
If we are frank, age is one of those things used as a basis to limit and hinder people from pursuing their dream. Whether young or old, age is a barrier individuals or others use to discourage from pursuit of a venture like a business. But, you need not be discouraged!
Whether you are 45 and counting or some younger age, you have what it takes to win the marketplace! Clearly, hard work, good plan, great execution, etc are all ingredients for success. However, overcoming self-doubt about un-relevant issues like age are equally important. Don’t cater to the un-relevant and pursue what matters most!
