If you were born between 1965 and 1976 you are in Generation X and are between 41 and 52 years old.
Many Gen Xers are now becoming empty nesters, are at the height of their careers, or at a potential pivot point in their life course. Many are also in the “sandwich generation,” caring for their children, older parents, and sometimes also for grandparents.
Reaching the first milestones of turning 40 and 50 may be jolting, and may, for the first time, put us face to face with societal ageism. Let’s nip that one in the bud. Let’s focus on exposing those limited paradigms of mid-life and beyond, and reconsider our responses to each of these milestones, embracing them and seeing them as signals of a new and greater empowerment.

Watch his chat with Kari Henley on “Aging into the Future” where he shares the world will have 13 “Super Aged” countries by 2020- offering significant changes at staggering rates. Many countries, particularly the USA, are great to be young, but not so great to be old. Enjoy!
