Podcast #304 – Teaching All Kinds of People to Sew
In this episode, I am speaking Linda Sivilich. Linda was a GetSetUp Startup Accelerator Program for 55+ winner. Linda has a real interesting story where she became disabled from her job in the airline industry and now has a successful and more importantly fulfilling business teaching people to sew. I think you will be able to hear the joy in her voice as she tells her story.
Linda worked for a major airline for 35 years and loved her job. However, in her mid-50s she lost eyesight in one of her eyes and was forced to retire.
She has been teaching people for 20 years, but it was the GetSetUp that changed her course.
Let me read the About Us section from the GetSetUp website:
GetSetUp is on a mission to help the third of the world’s population who are over 55 to learn new skills, connect with others and unlock new life experiences. Older adults have incredible knowledge to share and new mountains (literally and figuratively) to climb, but until now they haven’t had their place to pursue their passions and continue creating, growing, and giving back.
Linda entered the GetSetUp Startup Accelerator Program for 55+ last year and was selected as a winner and received a small grant to fund her business.
