Were you — an early bloomer, ready to conquer the world by age 3, always dreaming up the next greatest invention that would allow you to retire by the ripe age of 16, a go-getter….what some would call “gifted and talented”? Or were you — a late riser, someone who is defined as slower to develop talent, maybe did not develop as quickly as other peers, or whose talent or genius appeared later in life? However you describe yourself, it is never too late to turn your entrepreneurial dreams into a reality.
While there are a growing number of young millionaire celebrity and business geniuses, such as Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, only about 3 percent of all million-dollar tax returns are filed by taxpayers under age 35.
We live in a country that is fixated on youth and a country that equates wealth with success. Fortunately, there is no age discrimination when it comes to success. You can achieve it at any age. If you can’t live out your entrepreneurial dreams in your 20’s, there’s no reason you can’t start in your 40’s.
A few examples of “late bloomers” are Col. Harland Sanders, Walt Disney, and J.K. Rowling whose stories are as amazing as their success.
Col. Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, held several blue-collar jobs in his lifetime. He didn’t start cooking chicken until he was 40 and he didn’t start franchising until age 65.
Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star early in his career for lacking creativity. After that, Disney started a number of businesses that didn’t last too long and ended with bankruptcy and failure. Today Disney rakes in billions from merchandise, movies and theme parks around the world.
Before the “Harry Potter” series brought fame and wealth, J.K. Rowling was nearly penniless, severely depressed, divorced and trying to raise a child on her own while attending school and writing a novel. Rowling, through her hard work and determination, went from depending on welfare to being one of the richest women in the world in a span of only a few years.
