Thank you for your insight and the article. I started my own company when I was around 20, co started another one when I was 30 and some had better success than others. I live on the experience now though. What failed earlier is something I will bring with me to any other adventure. Failing is the best way to learn. When you reach 30–40 you want some financial stability, especially when you have kids;), so if you start a company in your twenties and it takes you 5–10 years to make it successful and finally bring in some cash, you’re already in your thirties. Yikes, time flies :) sometimes you just gotta jump. That means on everything in life. If you ask yourself if you are ready to be a parent or if this is a good time, no kids would ever be born :p

If you want to take a stab at setting up a company, just do it. Fail or succeed. I have a saying : «jump head first, the worst thing that can happen is that you have to swim back to the ladder»
