PURPOSE, PASSION AND GRIT (PPG)
Originally conceived to be of benefit and to help stabilise the development of dementia in the elderly, Goldster has evolved into an online membership platform created to inspire and make accessible and enjoyable content for anyone over 50, no matter their health. The objective is to make leading a more active, interesting, fun and ultimately healthy life more attractive as well as accessible.

The platform offers members over 300 live virtual classes a month on subjects as diverse as Nutrition, Tai Chi, Painting, Yoga, Meditation, Life Coaching, Photography and Live Book and Author events. The philosophy and methodology behind it all are to guide mind, body and spirit towards healthier living and a longer life, but one essential element underlying it all is of course purpose in life, the passion and the grit it takes to achieve one’s goals.
A new programme has recently been launched, ‘Purpose, Passion and Grit‘ and for which, having been interviewed myself, I have now swopped hats and are one of the interviewers. I am joined by three other interviewers of note:
Lucinda Hawksley (no relation) – a descendant of Charles Dickens, author and speaker.
Humphrey Hawksley – former BBC Correspondent, author and commentator (not a rellie of Lucinda’s!).
Alastair Brignell – former English Cricket Captain and Captain of England Rugby team who left sports after being diagnosed with MS and is now an inspirational lecturer and speaker for Sporting Memories.
For my own bi-monthly interviews, I will be seeking inspiring examples of people, both famous and unknown, who have turned hardship or challenges into life-enhancing achievement through adventure and exploration.
Membership’ to Goldster is free for one month with full access to all live interviews & classes. After this 30 day free trial, there is a subscription fee of £10 which one can cancel at the end of it before actually paying but one cannot trial without first giving email and bank details, ie fully subscribing.
