For entrepreneurs, energy and passion are not necessarily correlated (positively or negatively) to age. During my time interacting with entrepreneurs, I’ve met a number of “duds” that are quite young and I’ve met a number of “firecrackers” that are quite old. In my estimation, the main difference between these groups is the amount of passion they have for what they do; their energy level derives from inside, from how fired up they are about the business they are in. The main lesson here is not to use age (either young or old) as an excuse for lack of energy or sub-par performance. Find a business that you believe in, that makes you eager to get out of bed in the morning, and you’ll be amazed by the almost endless supply of energy you can tap into. The other lesson is to not be fooled by what you see on the surface; age can be very deceptive in terms of utility, capability, enthusiasm, knowledge and passion..
