My name is Mark O'Keefe and I'm working proof that the headline above is not hyperbole. You can be happier, healthier and wealthier in your 50s than you were in your 40s and even your 30s.

As a bonus, I will send you my eBook showing you how to leverage LinkedIn in your 50s. I can thank LinkedIn for a recruiter contacting me about my current job as a communications VP at a Washington, D.C. trade association.

My story of getting fired, then Fired UP
They called it a reorganization. Unfortunately, I was the only one reorganized.
Essentially, I was fired at age 50..
How bad was it? Newsweek ran an iconic cover image that year of a man wearing a dark suit, unable to move, face in the sand, under the headline, "Beached White Male."
I was among the 56% of people forced out of a job after age 50, according to analysis of a government study of 20,000 Americans. According to that same study, the chance of recovering your annual income after getting shown the door is only 10%.
I beat the odds. I bounced back. I got fired UP after 50.
Now I want to give back, sharing what I've learned to help you reach your goals.
Brother, you're not alone
Many men experience challenging changes in their 50s. It might be your job, your marriage, your health or even your faith.
Pain is what gets the attention of guys like us.
In fact, as a person of faith, I'm convinced pain may be God's favorite tool to prod men to consider new paths with new opportunities.
No pain, no gain.
It's what motivates most of us to change.
The good news is this: You can take charge of your future. Get Fired UP after 50!
