Throughout each day, at The Life @ 50+ Convention ( This series actually begins with a Prelude ), there were lots of sessions for attendees to sit in on, on a variety of subjects, from lifestyle related to health, travel, career, and finances.
Some were better attended than others based on my own experience.
While wandering the exhibit hall was fun, and interesting, I was mainly interested in several of the sessions, & I found each one that I attended interesting, and valuable, a couple especially so.
On the first day I attended these hour long sessions:
1. Tips from the Money Coach, with Lynette Khalfani-Cox.
2. Turning Your Passion into a Career on You Tube.
On the 2nd day I attended these hour long sessions:
1. Repacking Your Bags...Reimagining Life & Work, with Richard Leider
2. Reimagining Your Life, with Chris Gardner.
3. What Color is Your Parachute, with Dick Bolles.
With these, and other interesting sessions to report on, the LA Times only coverage of the entire 3 day convention, was focused on the "Social Security: Will it be there when I need it?" discussion on the morning of the 3rd, and last, day.
"Worry is in the air at AARP event"
"Seniors express fears as Medicare, & Social Security, come under political fire."
Making generalizations like this based on chatting with, and quoting, a half dozen seniors, & the AARP Chief Executive, and someone from the AARP Public Policy Institute, is about as informative as my claiming that everyone in attendance at the convention, based on my observations, and chats, was happy as clams, without a care in the world to trouble their wrinkled brows. ;-D
