Turning “OK, Boomer” into “Thank you, Boomer” with Marc Joseph The Retirement Success in Maine Podcast

    • Self-Improvement

Ep 085: We often deep dive into many retirement topics including the opportunities and challenges that many of us face, but what about the people themselves that are retiring? If you zoom out and look at themes and shared experiences that shape their worldviews, what differs one generation from another? What about the Baby Boomer generation and what makes them unique from the previous generations that have gone through retirement? Why do flippant statements such as “Ok, Boomer” come about and how do we turn that around? Why don’t we turn “OK, Boomer” into “Thank you, Boomer”?

The mission of the site is to, 1) bring Baby Boomers together to improve their quality of life, 2) use Baby Boomers to help younger generations, 3) help Baby Boomers pay it forward as knowledgeable elders, and lastly, 4) change Baby Boomer perception from OK Boomer to THANKS Boomer.
