More and more people are being pushed out of work in their 50s, and then they are unable to find a comparable job but they are still too young to retire. In this video, Adriane Berg, founder of Generation Bold and author of Bottom Line’s Aging for Beginners blog, offers suggestions to people who find themselves in this crisis. Be resourceful, and use all of your strengths, she urges. Let go of your standards, and take action to make or save money. This could mean moving, accepting a less desirable job, volunteering or taking advantage of assistance available in the community. The actions you take at this stage of life may very well lead to your new job.
