I am a perfect example. I didn't get into IT untill I was 40 years old. I am now almost 62 and have been at it all this time. I was working in Customer Service in the 80's and had an interest in PC's and computing. I started reading everything I could get my hands on. After that I started asking questions with the systems guy where I worked. (IBM systems 38) Before I knew it I asked if I could help. It was a career after that. A lot of devotion and time, but it was worth it. You find your nitch and work on it. I have had 3 different jobs now I have been working at the last one for 9 years. I do a little of everything from networking to systems admin on the I series.
So it is possible.
So don't be discouraged.
