No matter what your age, making money makes sense.
I have read that children that learn early on how to make money, be it from selling Girl Guide Cookie, getting people to give them money in support of some charity, or simply earning their allowance, are more successful in attaining wealth as they get older.
As we age we our need to make money (for most of us) doesn’t change.
The difference is that
a) many of us didn’t learn how when were young
b) the opportunities changed as we got older.
But that should never stop us from being willing to learn how to earn.
One of the best examples of that is a man by the name of Brian Tracy. Goodness I think he is even older than me, but he still learns and earns by teaching others what he has learned.
You could learn something yourself by listening to him and maybe earn some money to increase you wealth at the same time.
Making money when you are older not only improves your net worth but your life. I won’t say it will make you happier but I once heard someone saying (maybe Jane Fonda) that being rich won’t make you happy but it sure makes being unhappier alot easier to cope with.
And don’t forget the biggest benefit, out side of more money, is that they say if we keep our brains engage we live longer and healthier lives. So it could provide benefits on all sides Health, Wealth and Aging.
