I kept my heart in my gut and squeezed out all the dead cells of my skin, cleansed myself in the potpourri of the flowers, the bees rode on me and harnessed my power.
The more we have available to us, the more it loses its appeal. The more choices we have to evaluate, the more overwhelming it all becomes. The greater the potential of successful opportunities, the more we become fearful of the possibility of not succeeding at all.
Learning how not to fall is important, but learning not to fear failure is equally important. Men and women over 60 need help building new careers, starting new businesses and finding new relationships. We need encouragement to pursue our passions, to reinvent ourselves.

Are you over 50 and feeling frustrated by the lack of opportunities in the job market? Do you think you're being overlooked simply because of your age? Are you tired of seeing the jobs go to younger, less experienced applicants? If so... read on!
