The 5 Stages of Reinvention for Boomers
Are we too old,
too expensive and
too out of touch?
The Boomer Reinvention curriculum grows out of a TEDx talk I gave in Long Beach, CA on how we Baby Boomers need to reinvent ourselves if we’re going to be successful in the 21st century.
We can’t study this in a book or an article. We have to roll up our sleeves and experience it first hand through a set of practices I call the 5 Stages of Reinvention.
Our willingness to look inside, to come to terms with who we are and how we’ve lived, and then to address our future, sets us on a path to greater success.
