How many times have you wanted to
start over? How many times have you started thinking about the
possibilities only to follow them up with the thought, "but it's
too late in my life to do this"? If you're human, then you've
probably had this discussion with yourself a million different
times, and that's okay, we all have those moments. However, even
though you may feel like it's too late to start over, it doesn't
mean that it is.
Today's guest, Peter Glatz is
essentially the holy grail when it comes to that myth. At 60 years
old, Peter left his dentistry career of over 40 years in order to
pursue cooking. He began his journey into the culinary world by
reaching out to well-known chefs offering to work for free! (Who
says you have to immediately start making money off of something
you love? Just start!).
Listen to how his journey led him to
eventually landing a dream job as a link cook at Nonesuch in
Oklahoma City, Bon Appetit's 2018 Best Restaurant in America.
Despite working long, 12 hour days at a physically taxing job,
Peter has never been happier.
I love so many things about his
story. There are so many people who count themselves out when they
reach a certain age because they believe it's too late for them to
pivot their path. But Peter's story is really a testament to the
fact that there is always time to try something new! Not only that,
but he didn't let his lack of formal experience stop him from
feeling confident enough to reach out to those well-known chefs.
There are just so, so many wonderful lessons to learn from Peter
and his journey.
Here is what we chat about in this episode:
- How it's never too late to start over.
- How if you want something different you should do something
- Why you should create a vision and then take action.
- And so much more!
