You Are Never to Old or Young to be an Entrepreneur

How old do you need to be to be an entrepreneur? 20? 30? 40? Or 60? 70? 75? When you think about entrepreneurs, you might think about those who forgo the college experience to chase their dreams. However, the idea that all successful entrepreneurs are vivacious, twenty-somethings is a myth. In fact, a recent study showed that the average age of startup founders in three separate divisions was 45. Entrepreneurs have to be creative and passionate. These qualities do not have an age limit.

I started one of my current businesses, a restaurant in the middle of covid (what was I thinking) at 72, three years ago. It has never been easier to be an entrepreneur as it is today. Today in a few clicks you have a website in the cloud. You used to have to fly around to meetings, today, everyone is just a web conference away. There has never been a better time to be an entrepreneur than today, and you can start at any age.

Come learn and be part of the conversation on todays entrepreneurism.
