More finance question
I am 35 and I haven't achieved much in life. Is it too late?
At age 36, I had a net worth of about $50,000 and was hired as the head of data processing by a Fortune 500 company. At 38, I was fired. I had always been envious of those who sat outside my walnut paneled office writing programs for a living, even thought I had never earned a dollar designing or writing computer programs. I decided that rather than getting on the CIO merry-go-round, I would become a programmer trainee at a greatly reduced income. Within a few years, I founded a software development company that specialized in building statement systems for major U.S. banks. My company employed about eight programmers who, according to my design, developed a system that many banks paid my company to install. By my 57th birthday, I was an expert programmer, had an eight-digit net worth, and was retired. The key ingredient in this success was my ability to become and remain intensely focused and committed. Get busy!
