Inspiring and On Point!

Love this show! Listening always makes me feel a little more hopeful about aging. Lou is engaging and asks thoughtful questions. I am thrilled to not only be a listener but also honored to have been a guest.

Second Breaks Lou Blaser - A guest’s point of view!

When your former colleague and friend, Lou Blaser, asks if you will join her in conversation for an episode of her Second Breaks Media podcast, there is no other response but Yes!

Thank you, Lou, for the opportunity to speak about 'Un-Retirement' and how I discovered a path to a new career, following a rich and fulfilling corporate career with PwC.

What a joy to have two lives with you — our PwC experience and now through your Second Breaks podcast and our entrepreneurial experience.

It was a joy to have this dialogue with you and such meaningful exchange for this episode. Your questions were insightful and will benefit your listeners as they consider their next chapter post retirement and how to take this journey. And - you made the podcast experience fun!

Thank you again! I’d love to come back in the future if I can be of support for your future themes/focus.

Insightful and real!

Lou goes deep on the questions and always has amazing guests on the show. I highly recommend this podcast.
