ABOUT THE PATERSON CENTER

Pete Richardson is the Co-Founder of the Paterson Center. Over the last 20 years, they've helped thousands of people put together a holistic plan for their lives. They do this through a process called LifePlan, which includes spending two full days with a facilitator who takes you through exercise after exercise to help you appreciate your past, understand your unique strengths, and put together a holistic plan for the future that integrates all areas of your life.

Pete has helped nearly 1000 people through the LifePlan process. After working with him in 2019 and going through the process myself, I knew that I needed to have Pete on the show.
