I’m writing an article for Connect Magazine that explores the question of what is the ideal age at which someone should start a business and am looking for some quotes from other entrepreneurs.
The question I put to you is at what age or stage of your life are you ideally suited to be an entrepreneur? Is it when you’re a teenager, in your early 20s, newly married in your mid-20s with little to risk, in your early 30s after getting some work experience and an MBA, or in your 40s once you’ve saved up your own capital and have a wealth of experience? What are the pros and cons of starting a business at each stage?
If you respond to this post I’m going to take that as permission to use your quote in this article which will be printed in a future issue of Connect and read by 30,000 people. I will probably only consider your quote if you have actual entrepreneurial experience as a founder of a company or are heavily involved with founders (i.e. you work at a VC firm). However, feel free to chiime in whether or not you fit into those two categories.
