How much does age really matter when starting a new business

by Annecarton / October 19, 2015 5:30 AM PDT

Age is just a number. What matters is your ability to pull yourself up and run after the goal. If you can do it best at 60, then that's the right age for you to startup.

Doesn't matter
by frankywilly25 / October 20, 2015 10:01 PM PDT

Age doesn't necessarily matter. People are like wine, they just get better with age. There is no greater joy than to "being your own boss". There are a lot of other factors to be considered before starting a business( http://www.aspirefcu.org/blog/life-advice/starting-own-business/ ), than worrying about age. If you have a solid concept and the will and energy to work towards it, then no matter what, you will be successful in any age.

Hello,

Your age wouldn't affect how good you are to start a business. As long you really know all about the ideas around your business then it will be easy to manage. It's your choice to learn and explore about your business even it is small, mid or large businesses. What you have learn must be implement wisely. Make your business goal outdo.

Have a blissful day!

It does not depend on that
by codydeegan / October 27, 2015 1:19 AM PDT

In my opinion, the age does not matter but the maturity of the person who want to start a new business as well as the capabilities that the person has.

As a successful entrepreneur at only 22, with a degree from Harvard Business School, I strongly disagree with everything that has been said in this post. One must have a young, energetic spirit and imagination that only the young possess. Almost always in my experiences, the elderly are obstinate and have a natural tendentiousness towards conservative notions. The young have the creativity to bear the ideas that this world needs. Admittedly, the focus is on the ideas, but in order to execute the ideas, and for them to actually work, one must have ethos at a young age.

Age is not a barrier
by jeevitadtet66 / December 4, 2015 4:10 AM PST

If you have the idea to start business it is well and good and the age is not barrier. Consider the key factors like the field of business, components that involve in the business, target audience, scope of the business and to the core keep track for the updates and impediments in your business fields.

I don't think that age matters. The person who has the capability can start business at any age.
