It’s Never too late to start an online business

How to start an online business even if you think you are too late for it

The only thing that determines whether it is too late to start an online business is our attitude and outlook.

This can affect people of any age. But the trap for people that believe they are “too old” is an assumption that their days of effectively learning new skills are behind them. Even if they think that they can learn new skills for building an online business they may think that it would take too long for them and that there would be no way they could keep up with changes in technology.

Often these thoughts will come up when Baby Boomers or even some Gen Xers will compare themselves to younger generations. On that point, as the Great Bard wrote in his play Much Ado About Nothing: “Comparisons are odourous”……….What? – Let’s revise that:

Comparisons are odious

It’s pointless to get stuck on comparing ourselves to other people.

As they say it’s no point comparing apples with oranges.

The more important point is to compare our personal progress from the time when we choose to take action on reaching our goal.

Many people of older generations may not have been brought up with online terminologies and coding in their blood. But a clear advantage the many older people often have over younger entrepreneurs is life experience.  This can count for a lot. Learning the ropes of online business certainly requires focus and determination. These are qualities that people of experience have.

Another quality that often comes with age and experience is resourcefulness. This is a quality that cannot be overstated in importance for accessing new opportunities in building an online business. And the options available in building an online business are many.

A sure way to get the right hacks on how to build an online business is by acting as though it is never too late. And better still: getting in with a circle of leading online marketing innovators. If you immerse yourself in with a community of leading mentors for successful online business development then you will create the optimal environment to pick up on the skills that you need to succeed online.

In any case, as written in a post by The Guardian, in the UK the average age to start a business is about 46 while in the US it was put at about 40 (cf. The Fabulous Forties – the perfect age to start a business). Just remember that with age you have a wealth of experience you can draw on. With that experience you can tap into niche marketing with greater depth of understanding to share with you audience. That can quickly translate to delivering your marketing message and brand with greater authority.

The only time it’s too late to start an online business is when you choose to continually postpone your action to make it happen.
