Your first act is school, your second act is work, but have you thought about what you’re going to do in your third act? Join host Liz Tinkham, a former Accenture Senior Managing Director, as she talks to guests who are happily “pretired” – using their time, treasure, and talent to pursue their purpose and passion in the third act of their life.
See you in the Fall!
Thank you for following Third Act this season. We're taking a break for the summer, and will return this Fall with a new roster of inspiring guests pursuing passion and purpose in their third acts.
The Life Maximizer with Shari Greco Reiches
On today’s show, Liz talks with Shari Greco Reiches – The Life Maximizer. Shari’s adoptive father gave her a great piece of advice early in her life: “You can have anything you want, but you can’t have everything you want.”
Shari has taken that advice and used it as the foundation for how she advises her clients as the founder of Rappaport Reiches Capital Management. Her firm’s motto: “How can we help you maximize your return on life?”, builds on that early advice by helping clients figure out their core values and then balancing their wants against those values and their financial portfolio.
While Shari is still actively involved in running her firm, she is creating her own third act within the firm, distilling all the valuable lessons she’s learned and giving them back through a blog, book, and podcast.

Encore: The Extreme Adventurer with Jerry Palmer
At the end of his first act, Jerry Palmer found himself out of shape, divorced, and without friends. Deciding to regain his lifelong connection to athletics was the turning point as he began training for an Ironman. After solidifying extreme sports as his passion, Jerry set his sights towards his most ambitious feat yet: crossing the entirety of the United States on foot.
Follow along as Jerry shares his life lessons, from a career of consulting with Accenture to the innate kindness of approaching a stranger. Traversing on foot gave him front-row seats to the turmoil of the country as he witnessed the prevalent inequalities still plaguing our society. Through it all, Jerry’s admirable mental fortitude encouraged him to persist, despite the challenges in his way.
The Super Ageist with Dave Stewart
On today's show, Liz talks with David Harry Stewart — The Super Ageist. David is the founder and face of Ageist, a new media company and agency that champions the vitality and influence of the modern 50-plus. David's second act was as a professional photographer, but he eventually realized that there was something just not right in photographing 20- and 30-year-olds for products targeting people over 50. So he and a friend launched media agency Ageist to represent the mindset and aspirations that drive this influential demographic. Today, he is a passionate champion and leading authority for those in the modern 50-plus age group.
