|How tapping their feet and some of their retirement funds resulted in Second Lives.
Geri Messer and Pat Balderas, both 66, got into tap dancing at two different points of their lives but their passion for it was the same. Geri tapped throughout her entire youth and had always meant to return to it. Pat didn’t start until she was in her 40’s but progressed so quickly that she was teaching a beginner’s class when she met up with Geri. Geri’s business experience from her husband’s software company plus Pat’s dance ability plus a SCORE advisor gave them the confidence to buy their dance studio when the current owner decided to sell.
