The Significant Figures

By Opeoluwa Runsewe

 

  1. Investment 
  2. Profit 
  3. AGE = Insignificant

Did you know that  66 members of the 2016 Forbes world’s Billionaires list are 40 and below? That is more than triple the number four years ago and a seven fold increase since 2010.

Did you know that 25 of these billionaires made their fortunes from companies that didn’t exist 10 years ago? Airbnb ,Snapchat ,uber ,pin interest and the likes.

I have been accused of “seeking a shortcut to success” ,I’ve heard remarks such as “children of nowadays don’t want to work.” my short span of experience and most particularly my age has caused reluctance amongst some older partners and clients. All these only acted as catalysts to further bring my vision and ideas to light.

Age doesn’t define your ability, skill or proficiency ;Age doesn’t determine the level of your foresight and the amount of success you can attain neither is It about how long ago you started or how long you’ve been at it . These figures are totally insignificant .

The figures that matter are the number of hours,the amount of effort and the percentage of income you invest. You are to be judged based on your profitability not your age nor your years of experience.
