Absolutely not! Many people chase what they want to do later in their life most likely due to having a family or other things that came up. If you are determined and really want your career dream go after it! You're just 40! It's not too late!
Your never too old to start a career or anything else for that matter. If your heart is in it, then do it. Age is just a number.
I don't believe in age barriers. the minute you start thinking about age is the minute you start limiting yourself. Life is short and one should pursue their dreams regardless of age.
Starting a new career, pursuing an education, marrying the one of your dreams, traveling the world; whatever your dream, it's never too late so long as you have life.
Go for it! I resigned my job to work full time from home at the age of 40 and has not regretted a day.
The reality would be the type of career as some companies want younger people these days. If you are starting your own business then by all means. Do your market research and figure the best way forward.
I dont think your ever too old to follow your heart and change your path. If its what will make you happy and satisfied with your life, and your capable of such a change than all the more power too you.
I guess the only downside might be your retirement plans. But there are many retirement savings options out there. Best of Luck to you!
this is the perfect time to say "age doesn't matter". in fact, most of the time 40 is a good time to start . by then you have enough experience and passion to do things.
