Sounds fairly aggressive especially in our current era. There are lots of 30 year olds with college degrees living with parents or waiting on tables. Very few 30 year olds in the U.S. would be considered successful. Success is rarely linear.
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THIS ASSESSMENT! Most successful careerists have achieved success by age 30 at the most. Many have achieved it earlier, esp. in the entertainment field!
Nevertheless MOST people are in the "rank and file". Very few people are in the 1% or 10% of very successful people. Only 1 in 5 people or 20% of Americans will ever earn $100k in a single year. I imagine most will be over the age of 30. :)

Yes, that's true. But on the average, measurable career success is from the age of 27-40. After that, well........

Pretty much after hitting a certain age companies/employers aren't going to invest time and training or in many cases even hire a person. This only leaves them with creative pursuits and entrepreneurship endeavors as a path to success. :)
What you both have elucidated is thus true indeed. 40 is the plateau of success for most people. However to me(IMO), from 32-35 is when one should achieve some measurable success. Don't you think so? To me, the EARLIER the BETTER!
