Hello Baby Boomers,

Did you know that every 8.5 seconds a Baby Boomer turns “60”?

Did you know that in 1935 when Social Security started, that the average U.S. life expectancy was about 60…now it is 77.9!

Now a days, I call Social Security…Social INsecurity…! Can you dig it?

There is plenty of help out there for those exploring how to creat an active and fillfulling second act. Here are some web sites to check out.

A Word About Persistence…

Of all the qualities that contribute to an accomplished life, none is more important than persistence. Intelligence, knowledge, connections, luck – they are all important ingredients in the stew of success, but persistence is the stock.

Here’s a little story about persistence – or the lack thereof: A few years ago, I attended a conference where about 200 would-be copywriters had assembled to learn more about the direct-mail business and make contacts. JT, the publisher of a large direct-mail company, invited the crowd to contact her if they wanted to try out for freelance positions.

Shockingly, only eight of the 200 came up to her after her speech and signed up for the opportunity. Imagine that – 192 out of 200 were too busy, scared, lazy, or whatever to take advantage of the kind of career opportunity that comes only once or twice in a lifetime. The eight who did respond were asked to send JT writing samples. Only one person did!

Keep this story in mind the next time you feel you are competing against too many people.

This is absolutely true! PERSISTENCE does pay off!!!

Once upon a time…LOL…I was applying for a job with a 3M company. This was back in the early 70’s, when women were just beginning to get into the sales market for selling [it was in the South]. Well, I went in, filled out my application, had a SHORT interview. Then I sent them a letter telling them thank you for taking the time to speak with me, giving me the opportunity for working for 3M, that I was excited about working for such a prestigious company.

When I hadn’t heard from them…I started calling them…it seemed that they hadn’t made their mind up yet…so, every day for two weeks I gave them a call telling them how much I wanted the opportunity to work for them and after researching the 3M company how I respected the 3M name…blah…blah…blah…

Finally they gave in…asked me to come and for a second interview. I was so excited. My foot was in the door! They asked me a few questions and then told me that I already had the job because of my perseverance, in seeking the position. I was the only one who followed up and kept after them about the job.

I was the only woman in that whole company, other than the secretary and the cleaning people!

There is more to this story…but I will save that for another opportunity to explain more sales strategy!

Smiles and world peace,
~The Baby Boomer Queen~
