Darrell Gurney on "Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver Radio Show"

Are you someone who got to midlife with the question “Why haven’t I accomplished more yet?” or the thought “I should be somewhere else by now!” You’re not the only one.


Join Dave Nassney, Host of Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver Radio Show, along with co-host Adrienne Gruberg, founder of The Caregiver Space, as they interview guests, Darrell Gurney & Alexandra Levin, on our first Blab Video-cast.


The Back Forty™ is the title of Darrell's newest book. This idea states that the first 40 or so years of our life is just R & D anyway…so don’t get bent out of shape about it looking this way or that! It was all simply research and development so that you could learn about yourself: your true interests, proclivities, passions, tendencies, and overall personal “wiring.”
