Well, Baby Boomers, you have a problem. It is estimated by the US Government that each day more than 7,918 Baby Boomers turn sixty! That's 2,890,070 people per year, the majority of whom plan to work well into their previously thought of "retirement years." What they are discovering is what awaits them are possibly 20 plus years of emptiness. They have no plan once they stop working. They have no reason to look forward to tomorrow. They were busy living life. The blank future confronts them because they have lost that dream they had as a young person. They have forgotten that idea or ideas that motivated them. Gid understands what that feels like, how a sense of dread can overcome someone who is suddenly faced with the unknown. He's been there! More importantly, Gid knows how they can make those years exciting...even spectacular!
When Jane Pauley interviewed Gid for a segment on the Today Show she said of him, 'He could be the Pied Piper of the Baby Boomer generation." She also wrote about him in her book, "Life Reimagined," as have two other authors. She then invited him to appear at the AARP National Convention in New Orleans and talk about his story.
