"Losing everything doesn't have to be the end, but the beginning of something new"
After losing my mortgage business at the age of 57 because of the housing melt down, things just seemed to go down hill from there. After my business fell apart, I also was evicted from my apartment, had my car repossessed and to top things off, my biggest humiliation was when I had to call my ex wife for a place to live.
Now at age 63 I enjoy being an entrepreneur, public speaker, trainer, and author. With my motivational articles, videos on YouTube called Over 50 And Broke and a web site with the same name, I try to show the over 50 crowd that come back stories are real and possible no matter what age you might be. I also show people how to stay fit wih my YouTube videos called Over 50 And Having A Ball. I try to show people how to hit the Tri-Fecta of life, which is a healthy mind, body and pocket.
I have been a guest on radio and T.V. as well as being featured in print, talking about my experiences of losing it all and starting over so late in life.
