What a great way of saying it’s never too late to start something, even if you think, looking back, you should have started it a long time ago.
‘Colonel’ Harland Sanders, who started the Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise operation at 62, is probably the best-known “late-starter” but there are many huge, successful businesses started when their founders were in their late 40s, 50s and 60s.
The fact is that success can come at any age: many of the well-known ‘overnight sensations’ having been working in their field/business for many years, sometimes decades, before this success.
So, never say that it’s too late: plant that tree today, water and feed it, and help it grow mightily.
