Chip is a major thought leader in our space and, luckily, one of our good friends. He has been instrumental in the early days of the creation of AGEIST. We last profiled him a few years ago here, and since then he has created the Modern Elder Academy in Baja, with now over 800 graduates. Why are all these people flocking to Chip and his school? Our conversation centers on the ideas of openness and curiosity, and how important they are to the phase of life Chip refers to as middle-essence. What are the essential qualities of a successful and happy elder today? Over 40% of Americans have a boss that is younger than they are, and if one is over 55, that number goes to 69%, so what do we need to know to make that work for us? How is this time different for men than women? Why is it that people from their 30s to their 80s are attending The Modern Elder Academy?
These are just some of the things Chip and I talk about in this podcast.
