STOP retiring from work. When it’s time, retire from life

How old are you?

No, don’t be shocked by the question, especially if you are a lady because they say it is quite rude to ask a woman’s age. You don’t have to answer in the comment section. You may be in your 20’s, in your 30’s, or 40’s or 50’s or wherever you are.

Now, if you work for someone as an employee, how many years of work like do you think you have?

A lot of people do not take the plunge to work for themselves because by the time they realize they want to work for themselves, they think it’s too late to do it. I get a fair bit of criticism because I started working for myself at 34. It has been difficult to start in my mid 30’s because by the time you cross your 20’s, taking risks gets a little difficult.

However, let’s say you are in your 40’s or even 50. Do you think it is too late to start all over to work for yourself as an entrepreneur or freelancer?

It is not too late to start. If you start something that you love, you will add years to your life. Do it! The past is bunk, even if you think it was a waste. You were a different person yesterday.

Stop retiring from work. You know why? It is because retirement is death, metaphorically speaking.
