Does success really have an expiration date? Is there an actual deadline you have to meet before you can’t be successful? And if you answered yes to all of these questions, what’s the best age to succeed? Let me break it down for you; success has, with no exceptions what so ever, no expiration date. It’s never too early to start a venture. It’s never too late to become great. Whatever rationalized concept or idea you have, imagining that there is a strict correlation between age and success, forget about it! Because at the end of the day success is what we all strive for and the only people who “cant” achieve it, are the ones who put up imaginary barriers between them and their goal.
Don’t believe me? Just check out Funders and Founders eye-opening infographic that flawlessly describes the nature of success. Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook by 19. Larry Page founded Google by 25. Hugo Boss founded Boss by 38. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Ferdinand Porsche founded Porsche by the age of 56.
When looking up the biographies of the absolute top 100 founder on the Forbes List, it’s showed that 35 was actually the most common age to start one of the most powerful companies in the world. Now I know what you’re thinking, a bunch of these companies were actually inherited from previous ones. Well luckily, we excluded those entities, to give this “research” a fair shot.
