Ask E. Jean: Is 30 Too Late to Start Over in My Career?

Dear E. Jean: I’m a teacher, unmotivated, unhappy, and lost in a sea of standardized tests. I can’t help dreaming of a new career involving my creativity and passion! But, at 30, am I too old to start over?

E. Jean: Seventy is the best age for starting over (tough old eggs have nothing to lose). Fifty is also excellent (all that experience). And a young lass of 30? Despite your innocence and naiveté, I believe you can do it, too!
