It is supposed to be merely a motivational saying. Age is just a number: you are not too old or too young to try something you want to do.

Is aging just a number?

Everyone ages, but how aging affects health varies from person to person. This means that how old someone seems or feels does not always match the number of years they have been alive; in other words, someone’s “biological age” can often differ from their “chronological age”

If you think the most successful businesses today were launched by young people, you’d be wrong.

In fact, a study from the Census Bureau found that most successful businesses were founded by people who are middle-aged. More specifically, a founder who is 50 years old is 2.8 times more likely to have a successful business than a person who is 25 years old.
