Many of us who are of a certain age find ourselves looking for new employment. The reasons are many and varied. What we all have in common though is the reaction we get when we apply for a new position…

On a practical level, ageism robs society of its connection to the largest and most powerful demographic. So, today, I would like to offer 7 powerful ways to fight back against ageism. Along the way, I hope to give you some ideas for how to get more from your life. 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.

I just recorded a video on this topic and I hope that you will share your opinion! 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.
