Add Value To Your Life At Any Age
February 18, 2022
Hosted by Phyllis Ayman, MS/SLP, CDP, CADDCT, CDCM, CMDCP
Each and every one of us has dreams, Many of us let our dreams die or think we don't have what it takes to pursue them. Many others think that since they've completed their traditional work roles, whether by their own choice or because of ageist attitudes, that they've somehow lost their value and with them, the possibility of pursuing their dreams. Society contributes to those beliefs as the prevailing point of view is that if one is no longer an active member of the traditional workforce, they have somehow lost their value. Robert Peterson is dedicated, insightful and passionately believes that if you'd lived on this planet for more than fifty years, you have wisdom to share that can not only benefit others, but there are entrepreneurial opportunities for you to share that wisdom. Peterson, a former pastor, encourages people to tap into their expertise, knowledge and passions and helps them develop the confidence and shift their mindset to believe they can make their dreams become reality. In doing so they can live a happier, more fulfilled, and purposeful and society will be enriched by the wisdom they have shared.
