If Marc Miller could have seen the future when he wrote his first book: Repurpose Your Career, A Practical Guide for Baby Boomers, he might have called it Life As You Know It Is About to Change…A Lot.
Since the 2008 economic downtown left many Baby Boomers unable to retire, Marc decided to use his own experiences to help others pivot to a career that would fulfill them for the next 20 years. In his second book, *Repurpose Your Career: A Practical Guide for the Second Half of Life* he addressed the fact that the people seeking him out weren’t all Baby Boomers. Many in Generation X were also either dissatisfied with their careers or were being displaced by ongoing technological and social disruption.
*Repurpose Your Career third edition* responds to another huge shift in work: In this age of disruption, digitization, and the gig economy, people need a new mindset and strategies to become continual learners, create their own flexible careers, and cope with ageism.
This book helps them do it. Miller’s Career Pivot.com has been listed as a top career site by organizations including Forbes and Career Sherpa, and his strategies for a career transition have been featured on Mashable, Life Hacker, Money, Flexjobs and Sixty & Me. His second book was listed as one of the best career books of all time by Book Authority.
A “recovering engineer,” who spent years working at IBM, Miller’s own career journey started when his bicycle collided with a car, nearly ending his life. The experience changed his perspective on what he was doing with his time and launched him on a search for career fulfillment, leading him to jobs including teaching in the inner city, fundraising for a non-profit, and working for startups. He decided to parlay his experiences—and his engineer’s expertise at breaking big tasks into manageable steps—into helping others find long-lasting career fulfillment.
Today, though unemployment is at record lows for all age groups, employee satisfaction numbers have remained low. Everyone wants a job that’s meaningful and fulfilling to them as individuals, but few know how to evaluate an opportunity for those criteria. Instead, they focus on things like money and location, not realizing that more impactful factors to their happiness might include how much time they interact with others, whether the role requires multitasking or single focus, and what level of emotional support they need.
Complicating matters is the fact that entire industries can virtually disappear overnight and that many people will wind up doing a series of jobs and side gigs rather than having one long-term role with a single employer. Every worker—regardless of age—needs to avail themselves of every opportunity to learn and grow rather than expecting someone to train them. And they to look not for a role to fill but a problem to solve.
Written with professional writer Susan Lahey, Repurpose Your Career, the third edition is not only an easy read but packed with practical information and specific action steps. It’s the guidebook people in their 40 and beyond need to carry them into the next phase of life.

That’s it for us. Stay tuned for the all-new Yak About Today when season 6 begins.

Dr. Belt has developed a program that reprograms the subconscious mind from negative to positive at any age.  It is recommended for ages 12 and older.  There is no maximum age limit.
 

mark_belt_md_and_david_yakir_on_Yak_About_Today.jpg

-The entire ABCs of Well-being program is based on math and science.  Why is it based on math? Math is the universal language of creation and works 100 % of the time.  Each step of the ABCs is based on clinical studies that increase the amount of neurotransmitters in your brain and body.  This helps to fortify the mind-body connection and fertilize the growth of the new subconscious mind. 

-The ABCs online course includes 12 Lessons with a total of 2-1/2 hours of teaching.  Each lesson is named for a letter of the alphabet and has been scientifically researched to increase neurotransmitters (nerve chemicals) throughout the body so they are available to fortify the mind-body connection.  Just as we learned the alphabet by our subconscious mind, we will use it to reprogram our subconscious mind.

-There are two parts to the ABCs  program.  The first section includes background and teaching on well-being and the subconscious mind.  The second part of the program includes the application of ABCs to reprogram the subconscious mind and make an easy, efficient and lasting transformation.  Each action helps the mind and body to communicate and provide a supply of chemicals to enhance the reprogramming of the subconscious mind.

-After completing the course, the participant will have tools to begin their life using their mind and body in the way it was designed.  They will be able to use their mind for them instead of against them.  The ABCs of Well-being course will help anyone go from mental chaos and disconnection from life to conscious awareness, transformation and creation of  the life that they want.

Thanks for listening. So I’ve been thinking about an on-line conversation I was having with my friend and former colleague Jeffrey Ginsberg. It was one of those reflective conversations where we spoke about our heyday in the advertising business - where we held a place at the top of an industry. We congratulated one another on our brilliance and our success - and then the conversation paused - we looked at one another - our faces were not the faces of the 45-year-olds who ruled. And then we became circumspect.

Jeff and I shared a lot of experiences in our industry. And although we came up through the ranks differently, there was a kinship there.

You see, Jeff worked his way up from the bottom, beginning as a messenger for an advertising agency and then steadily moving up the ranks to improbably reach the corner office. He made his reputation on his stewardship of likes of Samsung Motorola, Brother International, and AT&T just to name a few. He would eventually launch his own agency called Badalato-Ginsberg, and then life happened.

So that’s what we’ll yak about today

SO I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THE CONVERSATION **THAT WE DID NOT HAVE THE OTHER NIGHT** AND THE DINNER **THAT BILLY DID NOT COOK THE OTHER NIGHT-** WHAT WE DID THO - WAS GO OUT TO ONE OF THE LOCAL CHAIN RESTAURANTS, ALBEIT ONE OF THE BETTER ONES TO HAVE A HAMBURGER.

IT WAS KINDA NICE TO HAVE THAT BREAK FROM ALL THAT GOURMET COOKING - ADMIRING BILLS TECHNIQUE IN CREATING OUTSTANDING MEALS, SOME OF WHICH ARE ORIGINAL, SOME OF WHICH ARE JUST BETTER VERSIONS OF THE ONES WE HAVE IN RESTAURANTS.

BUT I DIGRESS.

IT WAS WHILE EATING THE HAMBURGER THAT I WAS EAVESDROPPING AMONG THE GUESTS SITTING AROUND US WHEN I OVERHEARD AN INTERESTING CONVERSATION

ONE MORE SENIOR WOMAN COMPLAINED THAT SHE HADN’T DONE HER MAKEUP, AND THE GENTLEMEN SITTING ACROSS FROM HER ( I CAN ONLY ASSUME THAT WAS HER HUSBAND SAID “SARAH, WHAT DO YOU NEED MAKEUP FOR - WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO ATTRACT AT YOUR AGE.

AT WHICH TIME THE OTHER WOMAN AT THE TABLE SAID. WELL HONEY YOU ARE LUCKY - AT YOUR AGE YOU ARE FREE NOW, YOU DON’T NEED MAKEUP ANYMORE.

AT WHICH TIME SARAH SAID - ITS NOT THE MAKEUP, BUT THE FACT THAT I FORGOT TO PUT IT ON.

THERE WERE SO MANY THINGS TO UNPACK IN THAT CONVERSATION - VANITY, AGING, BRAIN FUNCTION - SO I THOUGHT I’D SEARCH OUT SOME TRULY REMARKABLE PEOPLE TO ADDRESS MANY OF THOSE ISSUES.

SO THAT’S WHAT WE’LL YAK ABOUT TODAY.

Let’s face it people in western society are vain. Looking good is almost mandatory. You walk down the street in the big cities and they are teaming with fit, well clothed people with skin that is silky smooth.

But often you see some men and woman, looking a bit disheveled, glasses held up by the tip of the nose. no makeup (not homeless) I just assume that they are intellectuals, professors, scientists etc. WHO DON’T FALL INTO SOCIETIES EXPECTATIONS ON BEAUTY

I’ve always wondered what do those people think about Vanity. So I went and searched out someone who could give us a point of view of what the cost of vanity is.

https://youtu.be/wrTIS0uKg6o

 

e often talk about memory loss as we age. We’ve learned the tricks to help us out. Just ask Brad Zupp, our memory athlete. As a result, common wisdom says that age isn’t too kind to our minds abilities. But can iT brain actually be improving as we age. So why not look for someone who can explain it.

Our brains are powerful pieces of machinery that give us the capacity to do amazing things. Unfortunately, common wisdom says that age isn’t too kind to our minds’ abilities. Neuroscientist Thad Polk walks through the actual effects of aging on the human brain and shows that our assumptions might not be so accurate.
Dr. Thad Polk has been a member of the University of Michigan psychology faculty since 1996. he was named an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor in recognition of outstanding contributions to undergraduate education, and in 2012 Princeton Review included him on its list of the Best 300 Professors in the US.

I want to thank our sponsor for making Yak About Today possible AND THE NUMBER ONE TALK RADIO STATION IN OUR MARKET. We couldn’t do half of what we do without them. But that wouldn’t mean much if we didn’t believe in them. To my mind and many others they are simply the best practice to go to for both prevention as well as more serious eye conditions. So like i always say - go see Drs. Minotti Rhinehour, tate and o’brien because i wouldn’t trust my eyes to anyone else

What happens if you are a #baby-boomer and you didn't end up where you thought you would - Financially. Would you talk about it honestly without your ego getting in the way. 

I interviewed the anonymous Mr. Jones in Part 1 - Where am I now. How do I think. What is it i'm doing at this age.
