Inspiring topic that resonates with many aspiring career changers of any age. Thanks!
Chris Farrell’s “Unretirement” was the best book I have read about baby boomers seeking much more in the second half of life than some previous generations thought possible. It was inspiring and energizing. Now, having podcasts to continue this conversation is a real treat. Thanks, Chris!
Excellent podcast and great food for thought. Looking for something like this for awhile. Keep the episodes coming.
