At 53, Patti was laid off from her corporate job and faced a new struggle: companies weren’t into hiring someone her age. Determined to push forward, she knew she wanted to take a stand for “old fogies” like her who were struggling to find work over the age of 50. She opened up Fogue Studios, a supportive (and damn cool) space for artists over 50. Patti and Shawn chat about her first business ideas that failed, finding success doing what she loves and staying true to herself along the way.
