5 Famous Solopreneurs Who Had Accomplished Nothing By Age 30
You don't need to be Mark Zuckerberg or Jeff Bezos to build the next great solopreneur business. Here are 5 famous ones who have done it after the age of 30.
We often marvel and are amazed at a lot of young solopreneurs - Mark Z, Jeff Bezos, . But the reality is that despite what everyone tells you - there are a number of entrepeneurs who succeeded at a much later age. Many of these businesses were not possible before 30 without a tonne of business experience.

Vera Wang - Wang was a figure skater and journalist before entering the fashion industry. She did not open her own bridal boutique until she was 40, after being passed over for the editor-in-chief position at "Vogue". Wang's later-life career pivot into the fashion industry has made her one of its most iconic designers, especially in bridal wear.
Colonel Harland Sanders - Sanders started franchising Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) at the age of 62, using his first Social Security check to fund the business. His story is a testament to the idea that it's never too late to start a business venture that can become a global phenomenon.
Julia Child - Known for bringing French cuisine to the American audience, Julia Child published her first cookbook, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking," at 49 and became a television icon in her 50s. Her passion for food and cooking has made her a beloved figure worldwide.
