Age Ain't Nothing But A Number

I don’t know about you, but sometimes it’s easy to start the week off thinking about all the things we haven’t yet accomplished, instead of shifting our perspective and thinking about the things we get to accomplish. You can’t rush the process, but you can be proactive and take steps to position yourself for the destiny you desire. Don’t limit yourself by age, career, or status! Just because you’re 25, 35, or 45; you still have time to be the curator of your career! Here are three women we think will inspire you this week:

1) Martha Stewart:

Martha was 40 before she caught her big break, which turned out to be her first book, published in the 1980s. Now she is a highly successful female entrepreneur worth more than $300 million. Read more about Martha’s story at website

2) Vera Wang:

Did you know this famous fashion designer didn’t start designing wedding dresses until the age of 40? She transitioned careers from a competitive figure skater to editor at Vogue, and then through herself into her love of fashion. Vera Wang is now one of the most famous designers of our time.

3) Misty Copeland:

She has coined the tagline, “I Will What I Want” and she is doing just that! At the age of 32, she made history as the first black woman to perform the lead role of “Odette/Odile” in American Ballet Theatre’s Swan Lake during the company’s inaugural tour to Australia.

As you can see, age is nothing but a number! In the words of Audre Lorde, “If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
