Better with age!

Better With AgeSome people would say that nothing gets better with age! However, that’s not true – wine gets better with age, cheese gets better with age, and so does your ability to be innovative! You may be thinking, what?

  2. Gray hair is convincing- It helps you gain the confidence of others and incline them to follow your innovative concepts and methods
  3. You learned the patterns before breaking them – As you age you are comfortable challenging a company’s idea of “success” and breaking patterns
