Episode Description

Considering retirement after a long career in corporate America, but just aren’t sure if you have saved enough money? Or maybe you one of the “working worried,” sure you’ll be the next one at work asked to leave, and you’re not ready to hang it up yet? Once entering the job search, many seasoned workers find themselves applying for countless jobs, only to hear the constant refrain, “thanks but you’re overqualified.” Others consider starting a new business but just don’t know if they’re on the right track or have what it takes to successfully operate it. The future seems increasingly uncertain especially for the Boomer generation in relation to how they experience work and earn money. In this episode, John Tarnoff shares his insights on unique issues facing Boomers and what they can do to radically alter their future by considering the possibilities to reimagine and reinvent themselves in surprisingly new ways to literally thrive in the new economy.
