Unlocking The Web Of Mentorship &Raquo; 5A323D38 86Cc 4Deb 88Ac

Have you ever wondered whether mentors have mentors themselves? And if they do, who guides them? Does aging mean we’re left without mentors? The answer is no! Even those at the top of their game require guidance. Mentors can also be learners. Being a mentor doesn’t preclude one from being mentored. Mentorship isn’t a straightforward, top-down affair. It’s a multifaceted network of connections. We seek guidance from others when needed and, likewise, extend support when sought by others. Mentorship is more than a hierarchical structure; it’s a dynamic exchange. Rather... Continue Reading

Embrace The Next Chapter: Unlocking The Potential Of Retirement &Raquo; 7842Aa5F 53D2 4006 B857

Are you apprehensive about retirement? For many, retirement signifies departing from a career—a perceived loss. Though anticipated since youth, retirement’s arrival often evokes feelings of “jumping off a cliff,” “panic,” or “loss of identity.” However, retirement need not be synonymous with these anxieties. Instead, it presents an opportunity. Research indicates that by our 50s, 60s, and 70s, we’re at our happiest (AARP, 2018). At this stage, we’re poised to care for others selflessly (Ehlman, 2012), harboring a wealth of experience and... Continue Reading

The Senior Zone
February 3rd, 2024

I had the pleasure of meeting with Shawn Perry, host of The Senior Zone radio show. He’s been connecting seniors in the Washington, DC, area with services for over a decade. His story is particularly interesting because he had a career in the Air Force, and when he retired, was influenced by his grandmother to pivot to the field of aging. Because of Shawn’s work, countless people are connected with financial and mental health resources. I love hearing stories like his because it just takes one person with a passion to impact the world positively. You can check out my interview with Shawn... Continue Reading
