My column in today's The New York Times print edition, Business Section. Good things happening in the world of higher education. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/04/your-money/over-50-and-back-in-college-preparing-for-a-new-career.html?emc=eta1
For many retirees, babysitting grandchildren, golfing and relaxing on the beach is passé. Instead, they’re being newly educated for second careers.

Wonderful interview with me on PBSNewsHour about women and money. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/kerry-hannons-advice-women-keep-financially-fit-50s/
Keeping physically fit is always important, but as we age, it becomes even more imperative to maintaining quality of life. The same is true for financial fitness.

My +PBS +Next Avenue column.
Traditional senior centers are stifling, stodgy and just for old people. Thankfully, there's a growing movement to make the relics multigenerational.
