Apparently that is a milestone for young achiever to use to measure their progress enroute to the stratosphere of success.  Did you own your own home, business, have a family or reached the top of your field by age 30?  Well, wherever you are on that journey along the chronological scale know that the bar has been set pretty high by the following famous folks!

Here are some successful accomplishments made before they were 30.

  • Mark Twain published his first short story, “Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog.”
  • Donald Trump persuaded bankers to lend him $80 million so he could buy the Commodore Hotel.
  • Samuel Morse’s assistant, Alfred Lewis Vail, devised Morse code.
  • Physicist Armand H. L. Fizeau measured the speed of light.
