I Used to be Somebody

By Carl Landau

I Used to Be Somebody inspires Baby Boomer former entrepreneurs and execs to build their (non) retirement good life. Each week we interview cool, inspiring people about their retirement challenges and why and how they figured it out—turning this phase of life into an incredible, rewarding reality. It's for Boomers that don't want to retire--they just want to do something new that is more fun and less grind! Oh, and there's a little talk about Pickleball.
