PERFECT AGE

Too late to start something new? Too late to begin your next act? We don't think so.

Women 45+ are one of the fastest-growing groups of entrepreneurs creating businesses across a range of categories and interests.

What's more, the odds are in your favour as entrepreneurs starting a business later in life have a higher chance of success. Rather than age being a disadvantage; our skills, resilience, capabilities built up over a lifetime are a significant competitive advantage.

Time spent on the roller coaster of life equips you for the inevitable surprises in business and an understanding that great things come with patience and consistency. Years of navigating work and personal relationships create a highly developed sense of emotional intelligence, and later life brings a refreshing liberation from other's opinion that can often restrict us when we're first starting out in the world. All of this adds up to a powerful collection of skills and perspective.

 

So now you know you are the odds on favourite, what are you going to start?
