On Baby Boomers, White Hair and Multigenerational Creative Retirement- (Active Lifestyle)

On Baby Boomers, White Hair and Multigenerational Creative Retirement- (Active Lifestyle):When it Baby Boomer White Hair and Timeless Asheville Stylecomes to an active lifestyle and creative retirement, no doubt about it, my white-haired Baby Boomers clients are strongly interested in investigating the possibilities (as the photo depicts)  offered  when living in eco-friendly, multigenerational communities.

I imagine that is where you might find someone like the senior model known for her timeless beauty and classic style, Cindy Joseph, or one of my favorite clients, Bev. . . She is over 60. She is outspoken . And , I bet she  well understands the appropriation and care of a “feathered nest.”  

On that subject she corroborates what I have said here. . .that it is so important to "know yourself"....That is why I always ask that my clients “Tell Me What is Most Important to YOU.”.

Talking to ABC's  Nextracks, Ms.Joseph said, " I'm so happy to be done with the insecurity of youth and know who I am, know what I want, know how to handle myself." (BTW, she has her own “pro-age”  cosmetics line catering to White-Silver Haired Wonders and Baby Boomers like many of my clients. here in Asheville. .

As Baby Boomers begin to (un)retire, eco-friendly lifestyles and the health and environmental benefits of a "go green" attitude seem to  fit well. Speaking of Sustainability here are a few of Cindy Joseph's- Make Up Tips for Baby Boomers =)

I loved when Julia Child signed a new contract at the young age of 80 with PBS, and when we live in Napa, we saw Robert Mondavi almost daily (same age as Julia) eating a hearty breakfast with his wife before heading off to work and enjoy his world in Napa.  He  made Napa famous. A

Hi janeAnne.     I think many of us boomers have grown up thinking green and being conscious of the earth and our surroundings and are now trying to incorporate that into a healthy lifestyle.   I enjoyed this post.

Hi JaneAnne,

I never suffered from the insecurity of youth and would love to relive it again and maybe even improve upon it.

Millions of baby boomers have homes with equity and will be considering a move to a new home that meets their changing needs. This segment should be part of almost every agent's marketing strategy.
