Perhaps the time to start is right now?

They say timing is everything in life, and for many people, finding the right time to take a leap of faith and start a business can be a long process. I was chatting to a wonderful creative woman entrepreneur in South Africa recently who said it had taken her until she was 50, divorced, and with her children having left home to study at university, to be brave enough to follow her passion and start a business. She is not alone - many women entrepreneurs look at entrepreneurship as a viable life choice only later in life. But the thing to remember is that there is no one perfect time to become an entrepreneur or to start a business from scratch. It’s whatever time makes best sense to you - and age is no barrier to success for encore entrepreneurs. It can actually be an advantage as you bring a wealth of life and corporate experience with you. So, if you have a business idea or a passion that could be turned into a successful business but you have been waiting for the right moment, perhaps that moment is here right now!

Have yourself an inspired entrepreneurial day! - Melanie
