When surveyed, entrepreneurs say 29 is the ideal age to start a business. The average age that entrepreneurs actually start a business is 35.

调查显示,企业家认为29岁是创业的理想年龄。可实际上,企业家创业的平均年龄是 35岁。

There's no perfect age to start living your dreams. Being too young or too old is no excuse. The perfect time to start is right now.

要开始实现你的梦想,根本没有什么理想的年龄。年龄大小都不是理由,最佳时机就是现在,马上开始吧。

These people did.

这些企业家就是这样做的。

Nola Ochs-The Energizer Student

诺拉·奥克斯——较劲的学生

In 1972, Nola Ochs was widowed on her wheat farm in the town of Jetmore, Kansas (population 1000). She tended to her farm with the help of her children. In 1978, she realized she wanted more from life. Aged 68, she signed up for a tennis class at the nearest community college.

1972年,诺拉·奥克斯寡居在堪萨斯州杰特摩尔镇(人口 1000)一个种植小麦的农场。她在子女的帮助下照管农场。那是在1978年时,有一天她突然意识到生活应该多姿多彩。于是她在68岁时,去附近的社区学院报名参加了一个网球班。

After ten years studying everything from agribusiness to the Bible, she was told that she was one class away from an associate degree. All she must do was complete college algebra.

10年下来,从农业综合经营到圣经,她学了一样又一样。后来,她被告知再修一门课程就可以拿到大专文凭了——学完学院的代数课程。

With an associate degree she was pleased but not fulfilled. College algebra would not be the end of her scholarly career. Several years later she decided to make the two hour trek to Fort Hays State University. Enrolling at age 94, she lacked only 30 class hours to earn a bachelor's degree. In May 2007, at 95, she became the world's oldest college graduate.

取得大专学位,她很高兴,但并不满足。因为在她看来,拿下高校的代数课,并不意味着她的学习生涯就此结束。几年后,她决定驱车两小时去上富特海斯州立大学。入学时,她已94岁,只差30个课时就能获得学士学位。到 2007年 5月,在她95岁时,她成为世界上年纪最大的大学毕业生。

Is it time to sit back and enjoy the framed diploma on the farmhouse wall? Not yet. She started a Master's Degree.

现在该坐下来欣赏挂在农舍墙上,嵌在相框里的一纸文凭了吧?还是不行。她又开始了硕士学位的攻读。
