ABOUT PATTY’S ETV SHOW:
Some of us have reached the age approaching retirement or maybe we’re already there. Hopefully you’ve done your due diligence financially and have few worries about that part of retirement. But what about the rest of it? What are you going to do with your time? I want to explore the realm of possibilities for women of a certain age and how they can become viable and productive in their retirement years, how they can lead the charge for other women approaching that golden door.
