As a 57 year-old Gerontologist, I’m well acquainted with the toll aging takes on the body. Like it or not—and I don’t—our bodies are made to reproduce and then slowly wind down. Wrinkles, sagging skin, stiff joints, and a metabolism worthy of a snail are all part of the deal.

Boomer-aged Americans are three times more likely than Gen Yers to take a flyer and become entrepreneurs. A few years ago I joined their ranks. Based on the depth of my experience, I assumed I could do everything on my own. I was sorely mistaken.
My Boomer friends are obsessed with food. They live and breathe gourmet restaurants and celebrity chefs. To them gastronomical creations are “to die for!”
I was born a “Type A,” so I’m only truly comfortable when I’m climbing Mt. Everest.As soon as I reach the summit, I feel compelled to ascend a higher peak. My legendary discipline gets me into the gym every day and allows me to waive away even the most scrumptious dessert.
