The MaturePreneurial Mission

My mission is to help other older individuals step out of the 9 -5 working world and start their own entrepreneurial journey.  I started mine at the age of 53 with a food blog and I continue to thrive and get more ideas. Just because I’m past middle age that doesn’t mean I can’t be productive, creative and live my dream!

It Is Never Too Late To Succeed!

Listen to other entrepreneurs who started their journey after the age of 40! Hear stories of how they jumped hurdles, what worked for them and what didn’t.  You don’t have to go it alone. Learn from the successes and mistakes of others so you can start your journey today!
