Refirement Network :: February 2017


Dear Refirement Members

The world has become a global village. I am grateful for many reasons for technology that helps connect us across the globe. Firstly because my children live internationally and I get to engage and chat regularly. Secondly I have built Refirement Network by engaging and learning from many global experts about longevity and aging.

Technology is a key driver to understanding many of the new opportunities available to anyone 50+. Computers were the size of houses when we were growing up and for many there is a block to not wanting to learn and engage. That block may be fear, lack of confidence or a feeling that you don't need it. I want to challenge you all to learn and connect this year. Find someone to help you and take the steps needed to practice and engage.

This past week I spoke to more than 200 employees 50+ of a big company in Johannesburg. It was a privilege to share with them around how the world has changed, why they need to think about second careers and what their options may be. Take responsibility for your life today. Ask your company to engage with me to run these education programs for you and your colleagues. If they are not interested, join one of my public workshops and take responsibility for your own journey.

Look forward to meeting you soon via the summit, a workshop or online.

Warm regards
Lynda Smith
