Starting Over: The Midlife EntrepreneurDownload PDF
Midlife is traditionally a time for traveling or playing more golf -- but not for mid-lifers who decide to leave the security of a steady paycheck for the uncertain life of an entrepreneur.

In this interview with EIX's Kim Eddleston, Mould and his partner Lisa Lazure talk about the challenges of launching a new business at a time when many people are thinking about winding down.
