3 Benefits to Starting a Business After 50 that Have Nothing to do with Money

Do We Become More or Less Spiritual as We Age?

Even though I spent most of my life in the business world, there was a time when studying spirituality and religion was my passion. I even completed a degree in Comparative Religion at the University of Colorado. For a while, this topic was pushed to the background, but, as I have gotten a little older, I have, once again, found myself pondering spiritual topics. So, today, I would like to share a video that I recorded on the topic of spirituality after 60. I hope that you find it thought-provoking… regardless of whether you consider yourself to be religious or not. Join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat. And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend about us today. Your support means so much to me! Read More

Rethinking Loneliness – How the Search for Friendship is Really the Search for Ourselves

Loneliness is a complex problem. For starters, being alone is not the same as being lonely. Our feelings of loneliness come from how we interpret our situation, not from the simple fact that we are by ourselves. Read More
