A story of hope for the Golden Agers! We can still live a life of joy, fulfillment, and wealth. I am doing my part as a Life(Career-After-Retirement-Empowerment) CARE coach. We have an opportunity to contribute our gifts and talents as we 'play' this game called life, until we take our last breath. Are we having fun yet? Thank you Quizz folks.
