“It might take you by surprise to hear that market capitalization peaked for Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, and their likes, when these founders were middle-aged.

Likewise, Amazon’s future market cap growth rate was highest when Bezos turned 45 and Amazon had moved far beyond selling books online.”
