I don't think it is unrealistic. Maybe starting a high finance firm at 22 is. Age does not matter. The guy working in a restaurant for 2 years through 20-22 will know more about the business than a 10 year experienced investment banker. From personal experience, I know a few friends (not college grads) who started successful businesses between the ages of 23-27. One started a commercial cleaning company picked up one 3 year contract in suburban Houston, and clears $6,000 a month profit from it for sitting on his ass and having cheap laborers do the work. Might not be a lot of money but he can travel whenever he wants to without working 15 hour days. Balance and life choices. Everyone is different. For me personally I would rather have the time and freedom to travel and live comfortably than be a millionaire by working 70+ hours a week. Doing this at age 35 is MUCH different than 25.
