The 49-Year-Old Graduate?

Classes for Spring 2019, which will be the final semester of my economics studies, start next week. By the end of the semester I'll be 49 years old, eleven years older than when I started this "back to school" project.

Back then my kids were three years old, now they're fourteen. Back then I was running a little two-man software company, since then I've founded, grown, and sold a much bigger company, and now I'm retired.

It's been a long time and a lot has changed. But I'm excited to be going back to school one more time.

I love your blog. It’s insightful, entertaining, and funny at times too. I am a student at the University of Texas at Austin too (studying engineering nonetheless so not even close to whatever your studying atm) but I would love to have a chat with you if you have time for it. I’m willing to buy coffee for the both of us at any of the coffee shops on campus if you’re willing to indulge about 30 minute of your time to tell me more about your experience. I would love to hear more about your experience and thoughts so far!
