“There have been many revolutions over the last century, but perhaps none as significant as the longevity revolution. We are living on average today 34 years longer than our great-grandparents did — think about that. That’s an entire second adult lifetime that’s been added to our lifespan.” ~ Jane Fonda, Life’s Third Act
It was Jane Fonda’s TED talk, Life’s Third Act, that inspired us to build this website. In her talk she begins with this eye-opening observation that got us thinking about the next act in our lives.
We realized that as active women over the age of fifty, we still have a long way to go until retirement. With that in mind, we came up with Act 2.5 to address the richness of this vital age group (over 50).
Working people over 50, especially women, are often overlooked when it comes to advancement, career enrichment and rewards. Yet, in many cases, we offer the benefit of experience, resulting in greater perspective and creative solutions.
This website is the best way to share our stories, fresh ideas and useful tips with our readers. Please stay with us as we continue our journey for a better quality of life and to live — not just one life long dream — but many!
