Today’s guest post is from my wife (30 years of marriage this month!) and business partner Roslyn Rozbruch. She talks about an inspiring client testimonial and the power of not looking at age as a reason to stop you from pursuing your career goals!
Tax Resolution Success Story and Why Age Should NEVER Stop You from Pursuing a Tax Resolution Career!
Our team received an email from Ida Tuttle, who purchased the Tax Resolution Success Resource System. It was too good to keep to ourselves!
Ida wrote: “I am a 72-year-young woman who just started her own business in 2014. I am not looking to get rich, but I am looking to help others with their tax problems.”
We love hearing tax resolution business success stories from our clients. In addition to her kind words, we found her email so inspiring and awesome. Ida’s age hasn’t stopped her from pursuing her dreams – she is so clear on what success means to her and nothing is getting in her way.
Over the years (or I should say decades) I have had several careers. Before I worked with Michael, I was a hairstylist, a legal assistant, a journalist, and an assistant editor at the city magazine. The point of all of this is that over the years, I, like Ida Tuttle, have never put an age limit on pursuing a career.
So many times I have heard someone tell me something they want to do but can’t, because, “That’s a job only someone younger would get”, or my favorite complaint, “The competition in that field is too tough. There are only two openings in that position and a hundred people are applying for it.” My thought is, if there are only two spots open, one is for me! That kind of thinking has always worked to my advantage. Oh, sure, I’m aware of the obstacles in front of me, but I try to put them on the back burner.
When I pursue a goal, I’m aware of the difficulty, but I don’t let that roadblock me. I put in the hard work and I follow the flow of my life and where my journey takes me. Reading Ida Tuttle’s email, it was nice to see I’m not the only person who thinks this way. Everyone has a different idea of what success is to them, and in Michael’s Academy his intention is to help you reach your goals — whatever they are.
So, my thought for you to ponder is this: What is it in your life you would like to do? It doesn’t matter if it’s a personal or business goal; whatever it is, don’t be the first person to stop you from following your dreams, There’s no age limit, or time limit, for achieving your goals and living a successful life.
