George Schofield, a developmental psychologist, entrepreneur, career switcher, author of How Do I Get There From Here?, Next Avenue Influencer in Aging and adviser on career planning, retirement and life crafting after 50, talks with ‘Your Next Avenue’ host Richard Eisenberg about: what it means to live a “portfolio life;” the “old normal” and the “new normal” of work; what replaced the traditional four-stage model of life; what’s at risk for older workers; the mismatch between older workers’ skills and expertise and the in-demand jobs of the gig economy; how to keep your skills up to date so you can keep working or return to work in retirement and why he views this period over life — over 50 — as one of the most rewarding parts.
