Purpose and a Paycheck with Chris Farrell
From:
Dorian Mintzer, Ph.D.  BCC -- Retirement Expert Dorian Mintzer, Ph.D. BCC -- Retirement Expert
For Immediate Release:
Dateline: Boston , MA
Thursday, July 18, 2019

 

Purpose and a Paycheck is the title of Chris Farrell’s latest book (published earlier this year by HarperCollins Leadership). The book focuses on entrepreneurship, innovation and work in the second half of life. Growing numbers of experienced adults are starting their own business and working well into the traditional retirement years. An impressive body of scholarly research strongly suggests that given the opportunity, people in the second half of life can be as creative, innovative, and entrepreneurial as their younger peers, if not more so.

Tapping into the talents of experienced workers and breaking down the barriers of age discrimination holds the promise of boosting the economy’s dynamism and household incomes.

In this program, you’ll discover:

  • The impact on the economy if more people continue working rather than retire
  • Why more people are working well into the traditional retirement years
  • The kind of jobs people are getting in their 60s and 70s
  • How to find a job in the second half of life

All the details of our upcoming call are below:
