I asked Ben Petersen what are your top three favorite things of 2019. “So top three favorite things of 2019, let's see I guess, for me, just personal events, would be, my daughter being born, I got a new house, and I guess competing for the first time,” said Petersen. In this edition of a second chance, I talk to Ben Petersen about Motown, competitions and adding positive value, http://joshuaconner.org/2019/10/19/2ndchancewbpetersen541/ Photo Courtesy of Ben Petersen, Photo Created by Alex Ardenti
