Unleashing Your Inner Midlife Badass (with Craig Sweeney)
“I think there’s so many folks out there that, that think of aging. In midlife as a point whereby which everything is downhill from here. And I certainly haven’t hit my stride yet. And my future is bright and I want to kick some ass for the next 30, 40, 50 years. And I want to take others along on the ride and hear their stories and how they’re doing it.” – Craig Sweeney
