Invest In Yourself And Your Future Career (Part 2)

Whether we reinvent ourselves after 40 depends on individual’s happiness level. For somebody who is perfectly happy with what they do every day and would be as excited to continue do that for the next 5 or 10 years, you may not need to reinvent yourself.
