What if you could create your “Life by Design” (not by default). In this podcast, I have the pleasure of speaking with Irina Baranov about just that idea. In fact, how to actually do it! You might be asking, "Really? Can I pause, step back and think about what I want my life to be, not just wander along, letting the path I am on take me on its way?" Why is it important to design our lives, and who typically does this? Listen in to learn a fresh approach to you and your life.

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:

  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!
