About the event
Join us for our next Let's Talk. Modern Aging: Taking Chances Later in Life and the Power of Intention with the incomparable Diane Gilman, affectionately known as The Jean Queen. In this enlightening talk, Diane will impart her invaluable insights on embracing the later stages of life with vibrancy and deliberate action. She delves into the essence of positive aging, underscoring the significance of risk-taking and intentionality's pivotal role in sculpting a fulfilling and dynamic life. Gilman's passion lies in empowering women to wear their years with pride rather than shame.
Modern aging signifies a transformative shift in our perception and experience of life's later chapters. Moving away from outdated notions that equate aging with decline, it redefines aging as a phase marked by growth, opportunities, and the active creation of a vibrant, fulfilling existence. The emphasis on taking chances and intentional living grows increasingly vital as we age. By making purposeful choices, we ensure lives that are not only longer but also richer and more satisfying. This mindset reframes aging as a unique asset, enabling us to confront life's challenges and seize opportunities with a depth of wisdom and perspective exclusive to time's passage.
Embodying the principles of modern aging paves the way for transformative life experiences, nurturing a sense of purpose, continual learning, and a relentless passion for life, even amidst the complexities of our advancing years.
Diane Gilman's success came during one improbably "light bulb moment" at 59. Overnight, her life changed, and her dreams became a reality. She's built a $100 million brand on HSN and recently released her second book, Too Young to Be Old: How to Stay Vibrant, Visible, and Forever in Blue Jeans: 25 Secrets from TV's Jean, Queen. At 75, Diane is launching a new business and redefining what it means to be an entrepreneur in your 70s. Her message to women contemplating a mid-life career shift is clear and inspiring: "Give it a try. You can't win it unless you're in it. So if you feel like you haven't hit your stride yet, stay in the game."
This session is tailored for anyone aspiring to reinvent themselves, seeking inspiration to chase new dreams, or wishing to understand how to age with elegance and vitality. Diane's personal narrative and professional acumen offer a guide to embracing aging not as a hindrance but as a springboard for continuous growth and exploration.
