It’s time to throw away your “If I only had” and “I’m too old” and “I don’t know where to begin” and put your 2ND ACT in gear.
As part of its 2ND ACT speaker series, The Waterbury Palace has given me the wonderful opportunity on Tuesday March 26th to share with you my own career reinventions so that my “lessons learned” can propel you into realizing your own next career adventure.
I believe that everyone is capable of creating their own 2ND ACT. It doesn’t matter where you come from, what job or career you’re in now, or how old or how young you are. You CAN design a 2ND ACT. In fact, it’s a commitment we have to make to ourselves to live authentically and use our talents and abilities in every stage of our life. That is the philosophy behind my own serial reinvention path as a record producer for industry giant London Records during the height of the British Wave, President of my own record label, singer-songwriter at Nashville’s iconic Bluebird Café and CBGBs (the Bowery’s birthplace of punk), senior leader at major companies including MCI Telecommunications and Grand Circle Travel, published author, news-talk radio show host on Fairfield County’s WSTC/WNLK, stand-up comic whose appearance at NYC’s legendary Gotham Comedy Club was the premise for the television documentary Comic on a Half Shell, Host and Producer of the motorcycle odyssey DINERS for Connecticut Public Television (CPTV), and journalist who has written about motorcycling across Egypt and North Africa. I will share with you at The Waterbury Palace how my own career reinventions came about and my lessons learned from them so you can jump-start your own 2ND ACT.
Part inspirational, aspirational, experiential and just plain comical, the 2ND ACT speaker series at Waterbury’s Palace Theater is about after-50 life stories that will ignite your own imagination to become part of what is becoming a growing community of 2ND ACTers! IAnd, have I got some stories for YOU! I hope you’ll join me.
My talk runs about 45 to 60 minutes followed by a Q&A so we can talk. And, there’s even FOOD! AARP members can purchase up to four tickets at $20 each (originally $25) with the code “50Plus” at www.palacetheaterct.org, 203-346-2000 or the box office at 100 East Main Street.
