OWN THE GREY

Debra Jones RM

MODERN ELDERS are not like the former elders in that we have zest for life, and passion for adventure and exploration. We are not content to spend all our days in a rocking chair on the porch. We are active and social. We don’t feel old (although our bodies sometimes do.) We have a youthful mindset, believe that the best is yet to come, and we want to get the most out of life. This bi-weekly podcast is about growing older with a healthy body, mind and spirit - for 50+, baby boomers and seniors. Award-winning holistic health professional, Debra Jones' mission is to change negative attitudes towards aging and reinstate the reverence it deserves. Our society tells us that aging is undesirable. Why? As soon as we're born, we're aging. At OWN THE GREY, we believe that our age should be worn as a medal of honour. As we get older, we gain the power of perspective and WISDOM; an asset gained only by age. Let's change the conversation and set new, healthy, POSITIVE attitudes, and eliminate outdated stigmas. At OWN THE GREY, we uncover the hidden wisdom from the MODERN ELDERS of society so that ALL ages can be inspired by, and benefit from their stories.

Everyone Has a Story Worth Telling
The road to becoming an author begins when you realize that a story in your life demands to be told.  At first glance, writing a memoir looks easy enough. Easier than writing fiction. After all, there is no need to make up a story or characters, and the protagonist is none other than you. Still, memoir writing carries challenges and possibilities, and the first one is to decide to begin. Let’s dive into how Jill Phillips got started on her path to her first published book.Jill became a first-time author in retirement because she wanted to capture and record her family's stories before they were lost forever. Memories are precious and carry wisdom that can benefit others by broadening their perspective. My conversation with Jill about her self-publishing journey gives you insight into what she learned and tools she used that can help you to start telling your own story. She delivers her advice while sharing some of her own memoirs from her first book 'Lamlash Street.'

How To Retire Rich
This is what we should have been taught in school. A multi-millionaire shares his secret on how (and why) to retire RICH.Myles Wakeham, a high school drop-out, techno wiz, learned to look at life as a contrarian when he was faced with the grim reality that we MIGHT NOT retire gracefully into the sunset. This eye-opening reality-check will make you want to share this episode with your kids and grand kids too."And in the end it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years." - Abraham LincolnMyles is a contrarian, meaning he thinks outside of the box. Our conversation covered not only his perspective on financial sustainability, but also about freedom and liberty and regaining control of your destiny. Myles shared his view about the state of the world - especially the SUPPLY CHAIN and INFLATION - and what he's doing about it. He says we've been set-up with misinformation, and warns about the dangers of centralization especially with the current censorship of free speech now prevalent on social platforms. So much so, that he put his technological expertise to work by creating a social platform on his own server at matrix.orgMyles Wakeham's websiteThis episode is brought to you by LUNCH with a HEALER podcast.
