We often celebrate the 40 under 40 entrepreneurs in every community, but how often do you see anyone praising the 70 over 70 business leaders who are making things happen in the world of business. Paul Tasner's TED Talk on "How I Became an Entrepreneur at 66" is a must watch TED Talk (TED, not TEDx).

Paul Tasner is the co-founder and CEO of PulpWorks, and his story about career and entrepreneurship is one that everyone should hear. Thom Singer ran across his TED Talk online and immediately knew he had to interview Paul on the "Making Waves at C-Level Podcast".
