    For me,
    it’s not the age that matters as long as you’re capable of doing business.
    Entering a business career is not easy, a lot of effort is exerted in order
    to achieve a suuccessful one. Hardwork and persevearance is another factor.
    If you want to succeed in this field, you have to be positive. It’s normal to
    sometimes fail, but what’s important is your determination and willingness on
    your intentions. Always keep your feet off the ground and never give up.
    That’s all. Thanks for this post!

      Thanks for your input, Catherine!

      You’re absolutely right: it’s not about being the “right” age. There are other, far more important, factors that contribute to someone’s success in starting and running a business. In addition to the ones you’ve mentioned, it’s important to be able to learn from good and bad experiences. Failure provides a great opportunity to learn what’s not working and adapt your strategy accordingly.
