Some of Nashville’s elderly and veteran population benefitted heavily from a recent workshop for the ‘50 plus’ population. Business maverick Renee Bobb (RBI Enterprises, Inc.) joined forces with the Pathway Women’s’ Business Center) (WBC) and the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) at a ‘50+’ program. Statistics state that for a number of reasons, the over 50 population has returned to or extended their stay in the workforce. With our ever changing world, the digital divide and scams targeting the elderly, there is so much to learn and to be brought up to speed on.
Bobb, Pathway’s WBC President Amy Bunton, and Center Director Leslie Hayes each taught from the heart and found the group of attentive guests refreshing. There was no shortage of eagerness to learn or willingness to participate. It was not just superficial information either, because the questions were on point and Bobb once again has proven to be a sensational teacher and vested leader.
One of the focal points, which strongly contributed to the aforementioned success, was Bobb’s teaching style. The statuesque, skilled woman took the time to effectively answer all questions and encouraged audience interaction. Being a senior driven workshop, attendees were all over the age of 50 and each brought their own life lessons and skill set to the event.
Each attendee was given a well-rounded workbook from the AARP Foundation, which includes a myriad of resources right at the readers’ fingertips. In addition to those resources Bobb provided a few website and search options.
She mentioned how crucial it is for business owners to do their homework. As the evening continued with a smooth flow, the participants were asked to follow along in the workbook and to complete a nine-step action plan worksheet. After more final wrap up questions and answers, a self-paced homework assignment was given. Phone numbers was exchanged, deals were negotiated and it all wrapped up with group picture of the attending class and Renee Bobb.
Bobb is also a successful author who teaches all aspects of book publishing. She is hosting the next seminar online on Sunday, December 4 from 7-8:30 pm.
The goal is to help aspiring authors and business owners learn the step-by-step process on how to write market and publish a book.
