It Is Never Too Late To Start Your Own Business

08 Jul

Do you think you are too old to change your life and work at something you love? If your answer is yes, think again.  Around the world an increasing number of people are pursuing their passions and starting their own businesses. It is NEVER too late to follow your dreams. Many people are doing it, why can’t you?

Kay Illingworth, 52, from UK was devastated when her marriage ended after 19 years.  She found comfort in food and put on nearly 100 pounds of weight. For three years she cut herself off from the world. One day she was ready to embrace life again and decided to lose weight with the help of a dietitian. She didn’t want to weigh her portions and that is how The Diet Plate ® , the world’s first ever “Portion Control” plate was born. She patented and registered it, wrote to over 1000 dietitians in the UK and USA telling them all about The Diet Plate ® and within weeks many had requested samples. She then got on CNN Headline News. She believed in her product, took the first step and built up a brand that is now sweeping the UK. She lost her extra weight too!:-)

Hannah Van Dijk, 37, from UK was made redundant from her position as a marketing executive at an online bank. Instead of looking for another job, she decided to pursue her old dream of running her own retail operation. Less than a year after losing her job, she launched her shop The Welsh Farming Company. She now says “The shop is doing better than I could have imagined and we have now launched our online store”.

Eve Davies worked as a nurse for nearly three decades before launching her own business offering personalised tours of Britain. She was 62 years old when she and her husband Peter started to run Cambrian Routes, an award-winning specialist holiday service. Now they are planning their next two ventures: One will be taking over a shop in a wonderful little sailing village to sell water sports goods, clothing for walkers, kites and quality gifts. The other is the purchase of a holiday chalet to let.
