Chris Donovan quit his job as a telephone repairman at age 55 to become a shoe designer. In this mini-documentary about Donovan's radical career change, we learn that it's genuinely never too late to make a career change. Just watch this and think—if Donovan is following his dream, maybe you can too. Also, I really want his sunroom full of plants.

My favorite line: "Fear shouldn't paralyze you. It should make you move." -Chris Donovan.
