However, at the age of 52, Ray Kroc created a restaurant empire
for his career change after 50. He was a multi-mixer salesman with a
McDonalds restaurant as one of his customers. The huge order of
multi-mixers from this small restaurant run by brothers Dick and Mac
McDonald stunned him. As he investigated, he saw that they ran an
extremely efficient operation.
Kroc convinced the brothers to
begin expanding the concept at age 52. He eventually acquired exclusive
rights to the McDonalds name. You know the rest of the story.
This tells us that your passion can expand at any age!
