Are You Too Old to Work in Digital Marketing?

Ever get the feeling you've become invisible after reaching a "certain age"?
People never come out and say it.
In fact many go out of their way to tell you how good you look for someone your age.
_ "I hope I look as good when I get to be your age."_
As if just getting there would be a herculean challenge.
Since the 2008 recession, many Boomers and Gen X'ers have been pushed from the workplace leaving many to become reluctant entrepreneurs.
Many who used to work for agencies have tried to continue to work in out of their home.
Many others who never worked in marketing, took advantage of the low entry cost afforded by social media, to begin careers as Social Media Consultants.
Ageism exists in every field but particularly in one identified by companies who decorate their work space with bubble gum machines and climbing walls.
Do you feel you've been discriminated against?
Does ageism cut both ways, too old and too young?
