Posted by Andrea Simon on Sep 17, 2018 6:00:00 AM

Listen now as Bob Burg teaches us how to talk to each other to get the results we want!

Today’s podcast brings you Bob Burg, internationally renowned author and speaker whose specialty is teaching us how to rebuild relationships so we can actually begin to like each other again.

096: Gail Zugerman—Some Things Are Right Before You, Crammed Full of Possibilities

Posted by Andrea Simon on Sep 10, 2018 6:00:00 AM

Listen now as Gail Zugerman talks about growing older with gusto!

Like several of our podcasts, my interview with Gail Zugerman is with a woman who has reinvented herself several times as she has pursued her passions and her purpose. In our conversation, Gail and I talk about three things of great importance to us and to many of our listeners: 

  1. How can baby boomers rewire themselves to feel relevant?
  2. How do they look ahead to people 75+ for inspiration? 
  3. Why is the need to build social connections so important to them? 

These topics are already touching (or will touch) a great many of us, so I urge you to listen, learn and share!

Posted by Andrea Simon on Sep 3, 2018 6:00:00 AM

 Listen now as Cal Halvorsen talks about getting the most out of every year of your life!

Our podcast today is all about how to live successfully well into your elder years—whether you plan on living to be 100+ or just want to see life differently, whatever your age. My guest today is Dr. Cal J. Halvorsen, an assistant professor at the Boston College School of Social Work and an inaugural member of the Encore Public Voices Fellowship. This past May, Cal graduated with his PhD from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. Andy and I are very involved in Wash U and therefore very interested in Cal and his research. He's seeing that the years between 50 and 90 have become an entirely new phase in life where you can re-invent yourself and do things you might never have thought about before. So open your mind, listen and learn!
