  • When you find your passion in life, go for it! Some never find their passion(s) while others may finally pursue their dreams as a second career in mid-life or later.

  • No, 26 is not too old to change careers... I'm taking online college classes at 32 because I would like to work in a different field! That being said, you may need to look into what careers there are and the veterinary field and train accordingly in order to get hired... just liking animals may not be enough to get a paying job in a veterinary clinic when there are others with related diplomas/degrees applying for the same jobs. Good luck!

  • I was 37 when I went back to school to be a CMA, phlebotomist, and EKG tech. I appreciated and enjoyed learning much more than when I was younger in school. You are never to old for anything unless you convince yourself that you are.
