As I gear up to launch Boomer Den – an exciting online service that matches adult interns to their second career dreams – I want to give a “shout out” to some wonderful blogs and websites I’ve found along the way, that promote a message of empowerment to adults ages 45+.
The goal of Boomer Den is also to empower this demographic, by offering adults a chance to barter their time and talent in exchange for the chance to learn new skills that will help them embark on an encore or “chapter two” career.
Gen X and Boomers are a force to be reckoned with. Whether we’re currently employed, unemployed or pondering early retirement – our stories are still in the process of being written. I believe firmly that this is a time for us to realize dreams we’ve put on the back burner; to take chances we couldn’t take 10 or 20 years ago, and to answer those long ago “what if’s?”
So thank you to just a few of the sites I’ve found that promote a message of hope and possibility to those of us in our 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. If you don’t see your blog not on my list, let me hear from you!
