Thanks for this, Gary. I left the corporate world to start a consulting business at 44. Then, I founded a Tech startup at 48. Now I’m 51 and just started another new business last year. I’ve never been happier.
It’s never too late to do what you really want to do with your career and life.
What’s the alternative? Give up and stay in a job you hate for decades?
Trudge through the next 20–50 years of your life wishing that you had the courage to start something?
Sometimes older folks act like taking an entrepreneurial risk is too scary for them because of what they have to lose. Newsflash: it’s risky and scary for anyone at any age.
But, it’s also exciting and keeps you learning and growing. Folks should focus a lot more on the potential upside instead of being controlled by loss aversion and the sunk cost fallacy.
