Forget Your Troubles Come On Get Happy!

Fun and inspiring! That's the vibe of this wonderful new show. As a "late bloomer" I particularly appreciate hearing about the 2nd or even 3rd chapter of guests' lives. They bring so much vitality, wisdom, and hope — a much-needed commodity these days. Kudos to creator and host, Terry Lohrbeer, a fabulous role model for boomers everywhere!

Bee Bold Not Old!!! :)

What a an amazing concept, so many give up on life because of what they think its supposed to look like to grow old. This podcast puts that belief on its head.
