Description:

This week I am speaking with Michael Clinton. Here is a version of his LinkedIn about section:

He spent 40+ years in the publishing business as a Publisher, SVP, Exec VP, and President/Publishing Director of Hearst Magazines. Highlights include being on the executive team to launch O, The Oprah Magazine, Food Network, and HGTV magazines and acquiring such titles as Elle, Men's Health, and Women's Health, among others.

In 2020, He transitioned out of the day-to-day operations to become Senior Media Advisor to the CEO of The Hearst Corporation. Aside from his publishing career, he has published 10 books, 8 photography, and 2 memoirs, The Globetrotter Diaries (after visiting 100 countries) and Tales from the Trails (after running 7 marathons on 7 continents).
Writer, photographer, runner, motivational speaker.
Coming in Fall 2021.... a new book... ROAR into the second half of your life (before it's too late!)

In this episode, I discussed with Michael the concepts and processes presented in his book.

Now rather than a word from our sponsor, I have an announcement and an ask for you.

Starting in November of 2021, I will be scaling back some of the content creation for the Career Pivot blog and this podcast.

I want and NEED your input. I have created a survey that covers both the blog and this podcast. Please take a moment to stop now and go to CareerPivot.com/survey2021 or click here.

I want to know which types of episodes you have liked, what you would like more of and I very much need your input on the show notes, like do you even read them.

I will be keeping the survey open through the end of September of 2021.

This week I am speaking with my wife Lotus. It has been a while since I recorded an expat episode and I thought that you would enjoy her perspective.

We have been living in Ajijic Mexico for 3 years. We just sold our condo in Austin Texas and by the time this episode is published I hope we have a contract accepted on a house in Ajijic.

I want you to hear her perspective because before moving to Mexico, she had never lived or worked outside of Texas. I on the other hand grew up in New Jersey, went to college in Chicago, and worked for 40 years in Austin, Texas. During that time, I worked in close to 40 different countries. All of the teaching I did around the world left me very culturally adept. My wife did not have that experience.

You will hear that my wife is extremely happy here and if would have told me that 5 years ago, I probably would not have been skeptical at best.

Now rather than a word from our sponsor, I have an announcement and an ask for you.

Starting in November of 2021, I will be scaling back some of the content creation for the Career Pivot blog and this podcast.

This week I am speaking with Janine Vanderburg who wears multiple hats today. I am speaking with her in this episode about her leadership role in the Encore network.

Let me read some of her bio:

An encore champion and longtime community activist, Janine Vanderburg is in her encore career leading Changing the Narrative in Colorado, a campaign started in 2018 to change the way people think, talk and act about aging and ageism.

In 2019, Janine created the Age-Friendly Workplace Initiative, to “reframe” older workers to business leaders and to make businesses more aware of the benefits of intergenerational workplaces, and On the Same Page, a campaign to encourage intergenerational conversations about ageism. This year, Janine partnered with the local PBS station to produce and broadcast a series of intergenerational conversations about critical topics, including the role of the arts in advancing social justice, digital divides during Covid-19, health equity, and ageism.

Janine served two terms on the Denver Commission on Aging, where she facilitated a strategic planning process to help Denver become an age-friendly community and initiated the Commission’s social media presence to challenge the stereotype that older adults are digitally incompetent. In 2018, she earned the Mayor’s Diversity and Inclusion award for her advocacy for older adults.

Committed to leveraging the talents of people of all ages to benefit the community, Janine currently chairs the Encore Network Leadership Council. Her favorite saying: “We are the leaders we are looking for.”

This week I am speaking with Chris Farrell. I have had Chris on the podcast three other times. I had him on in episodes 2, 177, and 201. So you can tell he is one of my favorite guests.

Chris is currently a senior economics contributor at Marketplace, American Public Media’s nationally syndicated public radio business and economic program. He is also an economics commentator for Minnesota Public Radio and host of its series Conversations on the Creative Economy as well as a columnist for PBS Next Avenue and the Star Tribune. He has published five books on personal finance and the economy including, most recently, Purpose and a Paycheck: Finding Meaning, Money, and Happiness is the Second Half of Life.

Chris recently wrote a piece for Next Avenue called Older Workers and 'The Big Quit'. We discuss this and where the economy is going specifically as it relates to older workers.
