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: September 27, 2016
Time: 12:00 noon Eastern (9:00 am PST and 11 am CST)
Topic: Partnerships and Adjustments in Later Life
Speaker: Connie Goldman, Author and Award-Winning Radio Producer and Reporter
About the Program:
Connie Goldman, with 85 years of life experience, will join us for this call as we reflect on partnerships and adjustments in later life. As we age, we are often faced with daily changes, challenges, compromises, choices and losses. Connie believes that “inspiration and learning is available through the sharing of personal stories of adjustment and growth. We can help one another find new meaning as our mobility, availability and relationships change with the circumstances of later life.” Throughout her life, and shared in her many books, she’s collected stories with a belief that, “facts illustrate and stories illuminate.” During this call, we’ll hear stories she’s garnered over the years and some of her “words of wisdom” from her own life experiences. This is an opportunity to learn from a “wise elder” and feel richer from the connection and the experience.
Some things to consider:
- While juggling frustration, indecision and fear of losses due to aging, it is possible to gain new insights into your own emotional and spiritual growth.
- A personal and poignant story shared by someone in a similar situation can offer an unexpected source of comfort and inspiration as well as a more meaningful connection with yourself and others.
From the interview you’ll learn:
- how to alter your attitude and expectations as you age.
- how to recognize possibilities and growth, even in the face of losses.
- words of wisdom from a wise elder who is also a pioneer in the positive aging movement.
