These days, when people envisage entrepreneurs, they probably picture young tech heads like Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey or the Collison brothers.

At a relatively young age, you might feel over-the-hill because you think all entrepreneurs have to start out before they’re even old enough to drive.

However, this is not the case, and success in business is not always dependent on the age at which you start out on your entrepreneurial journey.

As can be seen in the below infographic from Key Retirement, founders of some of the world’s most successful companies didn’t find success until (relatively) late in their lives.

So, if you look at all those hugely successful young entrepreneurs and feel past it at the age of 28 (like I do!), then maybe take a look at this infographic and realise you’ve still got time to make your millions.
