I am LOVING the story around Jennifer Coolidge at the moment and her recent Grammy Award….. finally finding the success she always longed for in her 60’s. Very ‘on point’ for the discussions happening in my world right now.
I don’t know if it’s turning 40 that’s done it for me, but career changes in middle age, menopause, finding yourself, is it too late for me? And ALL of that has been coming up in conversation on the daily.
Someone messaged me the other day and asked if 52 was too old to join my Mentor Academy – ummmm – HOPE NOT !! In fact, you are my people.
Age isn’t just a number, not for some of us. It’s insecurities, fear of starting too late, fear of never starting at all, fear of too much to learn, aches pains, financial commitments, mouths to feed, years of dedication to other people, putting ourselves last and feelings of utter unworthiness.
But are you too old to be in business?
NEVER! And I don’t just say that to blow smoke up your a$$ (but could be just trying to reassure myself).
Look at Jennifer Coolidge] – what a LEGEND!
As I write this there’s a woman in her 60’s rocking a g banger bikini at the local swimming pool with no phucks given – what a LEGEND!
You’re never too old to start living and the real question is usually are you willing to do the work? Because I know 20 something years olds with all the time, youth and energy in the world that lack the willingness and drive to show up and ‘slay’ it in business.
I know plenty of ladies that have reached their 50’s and after a lifetime of caring for other people, feel like their life has only just begun. Bit sad really…….
Anyway I highly recommend reading The 5 Biggest Regrets of the Dying if your looking for a motivator outside of enlisting me to hold your hand.
