Have you got a story that would inspire others?

Taking a chance and doing something completely different can be very daunting at any age. If you are approaching or are beyond 50, change can be even more challenging. But for many – whether or not they saw it coming - this is what life, and circumstances, dictate. It may be redundancy, it may be divorce, it may be inadequate funds to see you through, or it may be the horror of projecting your mind into the future and thinking “is this it?”

Whatever the reason, you're not alone. Somebody somewhere is in the same boat and, indeed, may have been there before you, met the challenge head on and emerged with a lifestyle and attitude that now completely outshines what they had before.

What they say...


At the end of the day I am sure that retrospective regrets stem more from what one did NOT do when one had the chance, rather than what one did do.

– Clifford Allison

My advice to other people who may be thinking of starting a business at this age is that if you want to, there’s no time to waste.

– Suzy Cooper

Best of all is that wonderful feeling of waking up in the morning knowing that you can do whatever you decide to do that day.

– Gina Krupski


My advice to anyone considering studying through ILEX, or pursuing any other challenging ambition at this time of life is just do it’!

- Marion Wells
