Terri Lyon from Life At The Intersection

Do you know Terri? Well, let me introduce you to Terri. She’s a devoted SeniorSalon member and …

The Activist for Activists. Author of What’s on Your Sign? How to focus your passion and change the world and The What’s On Your Sign? Workbook. Teacher, Psychologist, Environmental Activist, Animal Lover.

As per Terri: I love to help people find their purpose and change the world.

When I got off the sidelines, I was spread thin and overwhelmed. Worse, I wasn’t sure I was making a difference. My deep dive into the research yielded well-tested results and techniques that I pulled together into my activism path. You can use it to get started on the path to effective activism, too.

You can follow Terri via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
