BLOG: Why starting your own business isn’t just for the under 30s
Almost all of us have thought about starting a business at some point. A “Eureka!” moment may come to mind regarding a product or we could be in a job that doesn’t give the freedom we desire. Jack Dorsey (the co-founder of Twitter), Henry Ford (founder of Ford Motor Company) and J.K. Rowling (Author of Harry Potter) all felt the same way, and all built their successes in their 30s.
Honed decision-making abilities

Starting a business or becoming self-employed can be daunting, but it can also be one of the most rewarding career decisions that anyone can make, giving you the freedom to work at your own pace, tailor working hours that suit your lifestyle and the ability to get out of the business exactly what has been put in.
And it’s not just a twenty-something’s game! “Older” entrepreneurs have had even more time to acquire life and work experience and hone their decision-making abilities – all of which are vital traits in a successful entrepreneur. With the right help and guidance, self-employment can be a great way to break away from the restraints of contract work and shift patterns.
