I'm living proof that you can be happier, healthier and wealthier in your 50s than you were in your 40s and even your 30s.
If it happened to me after my crisis, it can happen to you.
My mission is to help men 50 and up discover their True North so they can experience a more prosperous, productive and meaningful future.
Subscribe to my monthly newsletter to get inspiring stories, solid research and proven tips to not just survive but thrive in your 50s and beyond.
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: from Fired to Fired UP
They called it a reorganization. Unfortunately, I was the only one reorganized.
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 to people like you.
