Carl Schramm, former president of the Kauffman Foundation:

"Entrepreneurship provides an exciting new career for millions of older Americans, one they would never have anticipated growing up in a world that presumed people’s work life would end at 65. Rick Terrien has provided a fabulous roadmap on how to approach this new chapter in life. His brilliant 'Ageless Startup' is a handbook for how to shape your future so your most rewarding work lies ahead — work that benefits you and makes a difference in the lives of countless others. A must for career planning for anyone over forty!

Carl Schramm, former president of the Kauffman Foundation, author of Burn the Business Plan, serial entrepreneur, active venture investor, and University Professor at Syracuse.

“The book provides a roadmap to kick starting an entrepreneurial journey at any age. It offers tips and insight into entrepreneurship and contains interviews with past Purpose Prize Winners and Fellows. The book embodies the core mission of the Purpose Prize."

"Rick Terrien is a 2015 Purpose Prize Fellow and an entrepreneur repeatedly recognized for innovation excellence. He spent his career building creative business solutions to address societal problems. He received the 'Fast 50 Award' from Fast Company, the United States Small Business New Product of the Year Award. And now, he can add ‘author’ to his list of accomplishments."

Connecting to the Center for Ageless Entrepreneurs / CAE


I'm helping launch the Center for Ageless Entrepreneurs / CAE, with my cofounder Dr. John Golden. 

The mission of the CAE is to support entrepreneurs in the second half of life.  We are business driven and nonprofit managed.  Our model is peer-to-peer.  

We are just opening up.   I'm looking forward to what we can build together.  

Reconnecting SustainableWork

Greetings once again. 

What a vital time to apply sustainable work to the problems in the world.

Since  I last posted, my book was published.   

The book is called Ageless Startup.  Start a Business at Any Age.  I'll link the book at the end.  It earned some wonderful testimonials.  Interviews with other ageless entrepreneurs throughout the book inspire me.  I got to focus on big picture ideas as well as including 'to do' lists.  I had a great editor and publisher.

This book emerged directly from this blog.  

I'm very proud of this book.  It was released in April of 2020 - just as the pandemic emerged globally. 

I've also helped co-found the Center for Ageless Entrepreneurs, a 5001c3 non-profit building the infrastructure ageless entrepreneurs need to grow.  I'll save that for a separate post.

April 2022 will be the 17th anniversary of this SustainableWork blog. 

I'm looking forward to posting here as time allows.  Let's see what comes next!
