Did you know that April is National Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Month? Co-sponsored by the SBA and AARP, National Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Month provides mentoring and training to over 119,000 individuals nationwide. April has been chock-full of exciting and hugely informative events all over the country and, here at Better, Smarter, Richer, we want to keep the momentum going!
On this week’s BSR Broadcast, Jackie will be speaking with three very special guests about encore entrepreneurship. Rob Romasco is President of the AARP, and serves as the association’s principal volunteer spokesman, representing AARP to members and the public; we can’t wait to get his take on this exciting trend. Joyce DeMonnin—who has reimagined her own career several times over the years—is Outreach Director at AARP Oregon, helping people 50+ with issues of economic security. She works to support people launching encore careers, and also educates the public about retirement security, fights to strengthen Social Security, and works with local advocates to improve the retirement landscape in Oregon. Finally, Laura Schlafly, founder of Career Choices with Laura, is a creative catalyst for career change. She specializes in guiding midlife professionals through “career detours,” helping them investigate—and then launch—their “next acts.”
Please join join us for what is sure to be a very interesting conversation on Wednesday, April 30th—or any time afterthat!
