Aging into our 50s and beyond doesn’t have to be depressing, it can (and should) be very productive and fulfilling. It depends on what we focus on and what we decide to do every day. Sadly, it’s often a period when some people worry too much about wrinkles, grey hair, and arthritis. Some have lost focus of their unique skills and talents, and the value they bring into the world. Today, Arlene Gale and Gayle Carson, the self-professed S.O.B. (“Spunky Old Broad”), talk about why age is just a number and a mindset.. Gayle shares how to make your 50s and beyond purposeful and exciting. She also shares how to adapt to the dynamic nature of business, endure loss, live in alignment, and beat self-doubt. There is no such thing as retirement age, because people who enjoy what they do never retire. Tune in and discover Gayle’s secret to living a regret-free life!
