Life After Sixty
by Betsy Smith
Um, is there life after sixty? I guess that depends. I think it depends on your attitude. I also think the things that matter to us change when you hit a certain age. Early on we want to have kids, cars, houses, stuff. As time goes on the stuff matters less. And the connections and relationships matter more. Purpose is a somewhat loaded word. We all want purpose, but what is that? We want to matter. We want to make a difference. We want to lend a hand. We want to create a legacy. We want to be more than our job and our things. And all of that can mean different things to different people. For me it means creating a life where my work and my life merge. Where I can work with people I love, make a difference for them and still live a life that I love. Seemingly impossible. But, maybe not. I found an industry years ago, relationship marketing, that allows for all of that. I can pick and chose the people I work with. I have been mentored by the best and in turn have been able to pay it forward. I love working with people who know they want more from their life and are not sure what that means. And I love to help them achieve goals and dreams bigger than they thought possible! I love being part of a company whose motto and value is “Making People Better”. Powerful. Personal development is a critical part of our mission. We have what we call the Nerium Ripple. That just is stories of how one person can send ripples of goodness out into the world and multiply it. And we partnered with Big Brother/Big Sister, an organization that takes making a difference to a new level. My kids are now grown and on their own. This is my time. I can take my business anywhere. Currently I am living on the east coast after moving from Chicago. My kids are now in California and in about a year I will head out there too. I am meeting new friends daily. I feel a sense of purpose AND I can make a great living too. I am in the game of life and having the time of my life!
Yes, there is a great life after 60.
