Entrepreneur? How old you started?

If Hollywood wants to portray an entrepreneur in a movie, and it’s usually a he,  is in his early 20s, may or may not have a college degree, is probably wearing blue jeans and a hoodie, and is a bit unkempt, with messy hair and facial hair.

Think You’re Too Old to Be An Entrepreneur? Think Again. (Infographic)

That stereotype may appeal to our interest in a narrative where geeks take over the world, but the Mark Zuckerberg-inspired vision is absolutely only a part of the entrepreneurship story.

Many entrepreneurs don’t even think about launching their own business until they are in their 30s, 40s, and even 50s, after years of work experience.

Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonald’s, sold paper cups and milkshake mixers until he was 52, according to an infographic from San Francisco-based startup organization Funders and Founders (below).

The founder of cosmetic behemoth Mary Kay, Mary Kay Ash, sold books and home decor objects until she was 45.

Fret not if you are over 40 and have yet to start your own business. There’s still time.

And chances are, if you’ve worked a while, you’ve learned a thing or two about life and business that will be helpful, too.

Take a look at the infographic below for more examples of entrepreneurs who launched later in life.

Legislation applied to mixed marriage: An Infographic
We developed this infographic a couple of years ago at Imagination Studio, clarifying the legislation that applies to mixed marriages in Lebanon, and empowering couples in mixed relationships with this hard to access information.
I came across this again today while writing my thesis and thought people might find it useful.
The source of the information is conversations with priests, sheikhs and personal status lawyers in Lebanon.
If you do spot any inaccuracies please let me know. As you know, there is no centralized source for this information.
Finally, the clearest message that this infographic communicates is the gender and sectarian inequality in Lebanon, where some of us have more ‘freedoms’ than others when it comes to marriage, divorce, custody, inheritance, and so on.
Feel free to share.

A link from Andrew Bossone on FB
On this edition of Media on the MarginsMalihe Razazan speaks with Syrian-born Frontline correspondent Muhammad Ali about his most recent reporting trip from the town of al-Atārib near Aleppo in northern Syria, which is the subject of his Frontline documentary, “Syria’s Second Front.”
Since the start of the uprising in 2011, Ali, a 32-year-old Damascus native, has been to Syira on assignment 13 times.
He called his latest trip “a suicide mission.” According to an annual report from the Committee to Protect JournalistsSyria remained the most deadly place for journalists on the job in 2013.
The Associated Press reports that 30 journalists have been kidnapped or gone missing since April of last year.
Note:
Media on the Margins” is a regular Jadaliyya program dedicated to the stories behind the news, on the fault-lines of journalism and the fringes of public discourse.

The show shines a spotlight on stories missed, ignored, and omitted as well as the people who tell them. “Media on the Margins” is where “journalism grapples with journalism.” Click to watch the documentary in its entirety on PBS.
