    • I started a new career at 40 and I’m loving it.

      Hard, yes, regrets no.

      Just stay positive, do your research and most important do what you love.

      Wishing you all the best.

    • I’m definitely a late bloomer! It took 40 years to really discover what I want to do, and then I fell into it completely by accident. I still have doubts, even now after making chocolate for 6 years. And, I will admit, I still haven’t allowed myself to live up to the full potential in it. Maybe it’s being afraid to fail.

      But, something keeps me coming back so I persist. The comments I hear “your chocolate is better than Godiva,” the smiles I see when someone receives a box of my truffles, the encouragement I get from kind and caring people.

      I have no regrets other than not moving on it sooner or more aggressively. I’ve gotten in my own way. But choosing chocolate as a career, no regrets.

    • I started my own business at 39.
      I re-married at 42.
      I graduate with honors from university at 44.
      I’m 48 and thinking about my ‘third career.’
      Change keeps us young, and keeps us from stagnating.

    • I got re-married at 39 and became a step-mom to two wonderful boys...but my biggest accomplishment was being a new mum at 40 to a little precious baby boy...No regrets there, although my energy level isn’t the same as it was when I had my 3 daughters

      This was actually taken on my 40th birthday...Dec 25, 2007
