Revolutionize Your Retirement: Interviews with Experts to Help You Create a Fulfilling Second Half of Life
On the fourth Tuesday of each month, at 12:00 noon EST (which is 9:00 am PST and 11 am CST) I offer a free monthly call for all of you (and other people who may be interested.)
My goal is to bring experts to talk with you about “what’s next?” I’ll interview the experts for 45-50 minutes, followed by time for Q & A. You will be able to call in or access the call from your computer. More information will follow. It’s a free call, but you’ll need to sign up for the calls below.
If you are unable to make the call, go ahead and register. We will send out a recording to everyone who has registered.
This Month’s Program
Date: July 25, 2017
Time: 12:00 noon EDT (9:00 am PDT and 11 am CDT)
Topic: This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism
Speakers: Ashton Applewhite, speaker, author, and activist and the leading spokesperson to mobilize against discrimination on the basis of aging
About the Program:
From childhood on, we’re barraged by messages that it’s sad to be old. That wrinkles are embarrassing, and old people useless. Author and activist Ashton Applewhite believed them too-until she realized where this prejudice comes from and the damage it does. In this program, Ashton will trace her journey from apprehensive boomer to pro-aging radical, and in the process debunk myth after myth about late life. She will explain the roots of ageism-in history and in our own age denial-and how it divides and debases, examine how ageist myths and stereotypes cripple the way our brains and bodies function, look at ageism in the workplace and the bedroom, expose the cost of the all-American myth of independence, critique the portrayal of olders as burdens to society, describe what an all-age-friendly world would look like, and conclude with a rousing call to action. Whether you’re older or hoping to get there, this program will shake you by the shoulders, cheer you up, make you mad, and change the way you see the rest of your life. Age pride!
