Show Info

Created as a resource for Baby Boomers, this show dismisses the myths about what recent or soon-to-be retirees ought to do with their lives. It focuses on self-belief and possibilities for ‘emerging' seniors who look forward to life's Third Act - with dread or amazing promise!

Guests and interviews provide insights that factor into planning for, making choices about, and activating new or mothballed dreams. Elements of "VISTAS," a simple and powerful roadmap (grounded in six principles) will be referenced for individuals who want to work to know who he or she really is and how they want their coming decades to unfold. The "What's next?" question is often explored and options/resources for boomers to consider are frequent and abundant.

Being re-inspired and free to make changes is a right, regardless of age. Boomers often possess the wherewithal to construct more meaningful lives, even if they don't know where or how to start. This show encourages and challenges listeners to explore and discover ‘you,' and to act on your unique potential. With greater clarity, you'll find ways to love what you choose to do. You'll awaken to shifts you can make to live a life of even greater significance.

Your host, Eric Tonningsen is a boomer. With 25+ years of climbing corporate ladders, he's had life experiences similar to yours.
