Show Notes for Episode #30…
Hot Topic #1: Learning from Millennials
We’re big fans of the bestselling book, Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder by Chip Conley, chronicling his amazing journey to an encore career that ultimately sparked formation of the Modern Elders Academy – a wisdom school for midlife.
Chip Conley garnered three decades of incredible success as an entrepreneur, but then he made a huge career pivot, accepting an invitation to join AirBnB.
After years of being captain of his own ship, he now found himself navigating uncharted waters. In this episode, we shared an excerpt from Chip’s TED Talk: What Baby Boomers Can Learn from Millennials at Work… and vice versa.
Hot Topic #2: Conversations on Creativity
Next Avenue launched yet another great series – StoryCorps, where teachers and artists age 55+ chat about inspiration and fulfillment.
We showcased one story about ceramics instructor Ken Ferber and his student Lynda Schmidt. Lynda studied art early on, but didn’t see it as a viable career path… until life intervened.
