Renaissance people.

Renaissance people.
By Mary Trigiani • Issue #1102 • View online
Susan Wilner Golden has written a book, Stage (Not Age): How to Understand and Serve People Over 60—the Fastest Growing, Most Dynamic Market in the World. No surprise, her phrase “renaissance people” resonates. While Ms. Golden is concentrating on folks past 60 years of age, her concept is compelling for anyone looking to confirm their relevance and deliver to it – and to challenge labels. Maybe even defy them.
“I love the concept of renaming AARP for renaissance people because that’s one of the stages I articulate in my book. I think people who are at this later stage of life are repurposing, transitioning, and rethinking their life priorities. It truly is a renaissance stage. Most people really don’t want to retire. They may want to take a break, and they may not want to do the same type of work or career that they had, but they may want to repurpose, rejuvenate, and start in an area that has more meaning for them or that gives them more flexibility.
The concept that everybody over 65 is called a retiree or is of retirement age puts them all into one bucket. I think it’s important to abandon those kinds of words. It’s the same for senior and elderly because, again, it often has the connotation of the end, whereas you can have another 30 to 40 years of vibrancy to go.”
It’s only good to see every transition as a beginning instead of an end. My friend and mentor, Elias Bizannes, is a case in point. He’s also featured today.
