Life has a way of blocking your ultimate goal. What do I mean by this? A young lady was explaining her goals in life. Graduating from Law School by 25, Getting Married by 26, Having children by 30, Accumulating enough money to retire at 55. Then open a restaurant as a 2nd career by 60. I was dumb founded by all the effort and stress being created when the ultimate goal was to have a restaurant. Now, I do realize you have to have capital to open any business. It is nice to have your own capital but opening a first time business at 60 can be quite challenging and may run into other personal challenges that may prevent it from every happening.
