We all know a 14-year-old Instagram influencer who is making more money than their teenage angst knows what to do with. While the rest of us are adulting to the best of our abilities, it seems more and more common to find "young millionaires" in our generation. Even childhood stars who begin acting before they know how to drive seem like they already have achieved ultimate fame and greatness. This can be quite discouraging for the rest of us who are still figuring out how to budget their caffeine addiction (just me?).
We often see our role models as people who had success thrust upon them at a young age but never really understand their timeline of success. Get ready to be encouraged AF because you are about to see some of the most successful and well-known actors and businessmen and women who didn't achieve success until much later in life.

Seriously, her audition is amazing...You have to watch her audition. Really. It is truly inspiring. She is just a confident, sassy woman and completely shocks the audience and crushes her performance.

Ray KrocIn 2016 The Founder was released, a film retelling the incredible story of Ray Kroc who is known for founding McDonald's. He was 53 years old when he started working with restaurant owners and 59 when he bought his first McDonald's, and people are still lovin' it.
Donald FisherDonald and his wife Doris founded The Gap when he was 41 years old. It's now just referred to as Gap and is a multi-million dollar franchise. All I can see in my head is its cheesy yet classic commercials of people twirling in jeans and white tee shirts or polos smiling way too big. But thank you to Doris and Donald for selling me a good, reliable pair of jeans.
