Today's guest is a shining example of the Over 50 NewGen Entrepreneurial movement. For the first 53 years of her life, Valerie Ramsey led a "relatively normal American life". She married at age 20 and was dedicated to being a stay-at-home wife and mother of their 6 children.

Once she became an empty nester, she decided to launch the second half of her life and got a job as a clerk in the pro shop at Pebble Beach Resort. At age 58 she landed her dream job as PR and Media Manager at Pebble Beach. Her first week on the job, however, led to 3 successive health catastrophes that would lead to a quick retirement for most people ...not Valerie.

She regained her health and returned to her "dream job" as soon as she could. But she wasn't done with career development - and 5 years later at age 63 she was scouted by a modeling agency and ultimately signed a contract with the famous Ford Modeling Agency. Now, 15 years later, she is a motivational speaker, she has also written 2 books, she is on the national speakers circuit and also appears frequently on TV.
