10 Entrepreneurs Who Hit It Big After The Age of 30

One of the most interesting things about American life is that people can come from nothing and actually hit it big. Of course, in order to do this, they have to come up with an idea that can stand out among the crowd. It turns out coming up with this kind of an idea isn’t always the easiest thing in the world to do. That is why it took longer for some people than others. Sometimes it can almost take so long that people feel as though they aren’t going to to hit it big and then suddenly, they’re able to pull the trigger. Check out our list of 10 entrepreneurs who hit it big after the age of 30 and realize that just because you might not be a kid anymore, doesn’t mean you can’t eventually find some big time success.

Martha Stewart

While Stewart is known the world over these days, her career didn’t actually take off until she published her first book at the age of 41. Before that, she had a somewhat successful career as a caterer but that business went belly up after she had a falling out with her business partner. Now, thanks to her books and television shows, she’s worth more than $638 million.

Tory Burch

Tory Burch might come from a wealthy family, but she isn’t someone who was handed a pile of cash. Instead she had to get her start the old fashioned way and worked her way up. She started as a copywriter for magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar but at 39 decided to start her own clothing and apparel retail business and is now worth millions.
