Greatness over 50

I am working on my new book showing how we over 50's have an unfair advantage over the younger set when it comes to success. I am looking for some folks like us I can interview to help illustrate some of my points. Ideally these folks would be over 50's who have made a change (In business, health, relationships, etc) and succeeded in a big way. Let's start a conversation about this.

My fee for a conversation regarding my amazing life which includes an assault on Everest, falling into a crevice and dieing an horrible death is now available for 50 per hour, I am a slow talker.
Ps with regards to my death, I got better

Re: Greatness over 50

The thing about the older you get you gain that much more with life experience and learn by mistakes.

This is not an unfair advantage by any means so don't know where that came from.


You have to ask what is success anyway? is it just making money or is it being able to overcome some difficulty either physically or mentally?

Why target a particular age group? success can happen at any age.

I don't do interviews

Re: Greatness over 50

I see your points. Maybe "unfair advantage" is the wrong way to couch it. As you rightly stated life experience is that factor that age brings. The reason I want to narrow my focus on older folks is that I don't hear people who are talking about success (greatness, achievement, whatever you want to call it) to older people. I hear and see a lot about younger people and I am convinced that if older folks heard this message more often, that we would start venturing into new paths and succeeding in a fantastic way more often.

I don't think I have had 'an unfair advantage over the younger set' on the contrary I would say the opportunities for the young have increased over the years.

The reason why you don't hear about older people having success is because they have made it and no need to shout it from the roof tops.
That is the advantage of being older.
