If you are 30+, it may be late ( at least for subject of this post! ) . If you are not, it may be your last chance.
It is amazing as well as humbling to see what various folks have achieved in early age. Way to go !
Following link has list of successful entrepreneur or personalities, who made difference and became successful entrepreneur before turning 30. Now. that’s some achievement.
30 Under 30 -> http://www.inc.com/30under30/2007/
List is not limited to technology or any specific industry. Recipe for making into this list may not be easy. Each one has his/her own story. However, if I have to pickup any common factors out of all success stories, I will go for following
- Passion for what they do!
- Thinking different from others
- Not afraid of failing - In early age, who cares
3rd point is quite important in this context. I think, it is one of the biggest factors in my opinion as many people have some idea and by the time they are ready to implement they find themselves far ahead in family/social situation and their risk taking ability has reduced considerably. Mostly, they end up not starting the venture. A good (or possibly great ) opportunity lost ! Who to blame ? After all, it is all about right timing.
So if you are still young and if you are free from ever increasing social/family responsibilities, here is your chance. If you are pondering over some great idea, now is the time to implement it.. Go ahead.. take a chance.. Make a difference…
If you are 30+, well it may not be still late… You may have enough time to make it into “40 under 40 list” :)
Clock is ticking !!
