Quotes

  • "So you at 35 or you at 40 are just beginning. Don't let anyone tell you that you are too old to learn, too old to go back to school,  get that degree or do whatever it is you want to do. Never feel you have invested a certain amount in any setting so that you can't change that. That will not be wasted and you should not be afraid, you should go forward.... fearless."
