Ageless Aging = Third Acts
It’s a fact that people are living longer. Many of the 54 million Americans, age 65 and older don’t just want to settle into retirement. They want to seize new opportunities whether it be an entrepreneurial venture, philanthropic or community service, acquiring new skills or trades, educational pursuits, leisure activities, mentoring others, or remaining in the job market.
These older folks are living life on their terms while enthusiastically fulfilling their dreams or interests. They often want to leave a legacy of doing something of value and meaningful, using their already vast knowledge, skills, and experience to achieve purposeful aging.
What is a Third Act?
First Acts usually revolve around the time when people are persuing their educational goals and establishing initial career steps. Second Acts are defined by individuals maturing to focus on and grow their careers often moving from entry level to mid-level or higher positions. Third Acts are about older individuals who want to do something of consequence, purposeful, and enjoyable. Third Act is retirement improved.
