On this blog (those contending blogging is over are out of touch) I announced that I start a new job in Lower Manhattan (mostly telecommuting) this Monday. The producers for ABC News noticed. They asked to interview me. It happened. Here is the clip.
Aging might be an underused brand identity. I have a hunch that I was admitted to Harvard Law School because I was over 40 when I applied. The typical age is around 22. Also, I suspect that I got to deliver a talk, which wound up in VITAL SPEECHES OF THE DAY, at the New York State Bar Association because I was older and was going to address that topic for lawyers in transition. Here is that talk Download NYSBAtalkinVITALSPEECHESOFDAY.
Also, thanks to my advancing age I get to bunk in affordable housing for about a fourth of what I had been paying for a one-bedroom with balcony when I was still a sweet young thing. Nonaffordable housing meant I had to chase after every piece of work which was available. With the wolf not at the door, I am blossoming.
Thanks to ABC, especially its producers Rachel Humphries and Susan Schwartz, for bringing the professional triumphs of the aging worker to national attention.
