The official time line for the largest group of Americans in the history of the United States, the Baby Boomers generation, began with those Boomers born on January 1st, 1946 and ended with those born on December 31st, 1964. We now know that there are about 80 million of us in that category.
We also now know that 10,000 of us turn 65 years old every single day. Unfortunately, most of us have not prepared ourselves for retirement. The equity from our homes has taken a severe beating…Continue
Baby boomers are alive and well and living in droves, in all corners of the globe (77.3 million in the US alone). According to research, they control over 80% of personal financial assets, more than 50% of discretionary spending power, and make up for approximately 28% of the population.

I have had a crazy, busy, happy few weeks in my business lately – and I’m still on a roll. What I find most interesting is listening to conversations of other entrepreneurs who are saying they are ‘slowing down/shutting down/ for the summer, or parts of it. Really?
I know that can be seen as one of the benefits of being an entrepreneur – setting your own schedule! There are lots of perceptions and beliefs about ‘the life of an entrepreneur’ – let’s…Continue

I was in San Francisco for a week of meetings with my business coach and master mind group. We were all given an assignment – and were told to come prepared to present to the whole group. I had a different task in that I am working on a new strategy/presentation style when it comes to public speaking and sales.
If any of you have ever had the experience of doing a role-play in front of your peers, you can well imagine how I was feeling about this…Continue

I hear so many women entrepreneurs telling me that they hate sales – they find it sleazy, distasteful and uncomfortable for them. They just want to ‘do their passion’ and fulfill their purpose.
Huh? What’s that all about? Why in the world do so many women entrepreneurs feel so very uncomfortable when it comes to sales? I don’t get it.
Here’s a little known ‘secret’ – sales is fun and it can be easy! Ok, now get back up off the…Continue

Parents in the sixties got uptight when their kids challenged society’s standards. It was a paradox. Young Americans were told to leave a country founded on free speech for exercising free speech. This country’s strength is its foundation of ideas grounded in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. All ideas are placed in the mix. …Continue

Accentuate the Positive
You don’t have to peer very deeply to find negativity. It is all around us. This is especially so in a down economy. Discouragement will raise its ugly head and you must decide how to deal with it!
If you are a Boomer, you encounter other special issues. A recent report on formal EEO complaints revealed the…Continue

In today's blog post I talk about how it is easy to question why someone else does not make a move for the better but finding yourself in the same situation is a little unsettling. Why is it that sometimes we think we can see what is best for someone else but not for ourselves.
Moving when we were…Continue
