This week, I was pleased to be interviewed by Bill Magill, founder of the Interprize Group. Bill contacted me several years ago as he was evolving his organization to talk about how I was evolving my life after 50. He had read about my background and asked if I would share more about my reinvention on the Interprize blog. We finally had a chance to catch up and chat virtually.
Bill is a reformed Silicon Valley venture investor now living simply in the south of France. (Lucky, lucky Bill to live in such a beautiful part of the world.) He also directs start-up activity at the INSEAD business school as Director of Science Entrepreneurship. As Bill says, “I am fascinated with the notions of self-realization, positive psychology and how we flourish; of personal worth as opposed to acquired wealth.”
Reinvention After 50: A Boomer Blooms
It was a gratifying experience to look back over the past seven years as I answered Bill’s questions. He wanted to know about my core career, what precipitated my new direction, and where I’m headed in the next five years. He asked me about what processes and resources I used to create a plan for change.
Bill inquired if I had adopted any new life practices as I pursue my different interests and what advice I would give to others considering a new and grand ambition, or a dramatic shift toward a new direction.
All good questions for this point in my life. (Maybe there is a memoir or self-help book within these words of wisdom.)
I hope you will take time to visit the Interprize blog and read my interview at:
