We all have dreams of what we want to do and who we want to become. Many of us eventually decide it is too late; we have missed our chances. But is it ever really too late to try?
Don Simpson does not think so. In his memoir, Too Old for Motor Racing, he tells the story of how he became a race car driver at the age of sixty-two. Simpson is an ordinary man from a regular family; he spent his early years living on a council estate in Liverpool, UK. He attended the school at the end of his street, leaving as soon as he could. As a young man with a young family, he could not indulge in his passion for motor racing except as a spectator; racing was simply too expensive and risky for someone with a family to take care of. Later in life, however, Simpson discovered limits are almost always imagined, not real. At the age of sixty-two, he began to race.
Although your passion may be for something other than motor racing, this memoir seeks to inspire you to go after your dreams, because it is never too late to try.
Since 1894, when motor racing's colourful history began with a bang (and a banger!), drivers, racers and lunatics alike have done many stupid and bizarre things all in the name of motor sport. Author Geoff Tibballs has gathered together this absorbing collection of stories from over a century of motor racing around the world, including the Frenchman who drove 25 miles in reverse, the Grand Prix in which the leading drivers were so far ahead that they stopped for a meal in the pits, the Le Mans 24-hour race won by a car patched up with chewing gum, and the driver who drank six bottles of champagne - virtually one per pit-stop - on the way to winning the Indianapolis 500.
This installment of the College and Career Readiness series is focused on career readiness and graduating with a job offer. I have spent so much time over the last 13 years as an educator focusing on getting my students ready for the real world in addition to teaching them the subject matter at hand that putting these lessons into a book is the best way to share it with everyone who is interested in being ready after graduation to begin their CAREER.

The economy and the skill sets are changing so rapidly but there are ways to be more prepared and more "hirable" than your competition and reading this book is the way to do it. I will discuss and provide actionable lessons on the following topics that you can then apply to your life and help you to be ready to graduate with a job offer and then you can read my Entrepreneur-ING series to continue to be the boss of your own career:
