Apr 20, 2020 | books, culture, Health, politics, seniors, technology

Welcome to the Not Old Better Show, Business Buildout series, I’m your host, PV, and this is episode #442.

We have a great Not Old Better Show, Business Buildout career episode today, and my guest is Andy Levine, host of the wonderful podcast, Second Act Stories.

Second Act Stories is a great podcast, and Andy Levine, who will be hearing from in just a bit, is a great host and friend. I love the show, and Andy has invited me to be a guest soon, too. So, you know I’m 100% in lockstep with Andy, and what he’s doing with Second Act Stories.

Andy Levine and I have been friends for a while now, and I know that Andy is a busy guy with multiple ‘acts’ of his own. Andy is chairman of Development Counselors International, and DCI conducts worldwide economic development. As I say, Andy is a busy guy and as the host of the wildly popular podcast Second Act Stories, Andy has traveled to California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Virginia to conduct face-to-face interviews with podcast guests.

Andy Levine has a fascination with storytelling and second acts, which triggered the launch of this podcast. Our Not Old Better Show audience is familiar with second acts, and Andy will share with us some of those stories and some steps on how to find your own second act. Because, finding a second-act career isn’t always easy, even for those with a track record of professional success. It requires much more than just announcing your retirement one day and signing on as a volunteer the next. Andy will tell us some inspiring stories of those who’ve done it, and done it well.

You’ll need to do both soul-searching and research first to understand which of your skills are transferable and how they can be useful, but these are the kind of stories you’ll find at Second Act Stories podcast.

Of course, we’ll have lots of links to find and connect with Andy Levine online, and Andy has prepared a reading list for our Not Old Better Show audience, which we’ll also link to.

Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show via internet phone, Andy Levine.

My thanks to Andy Levine, joining us today to talk about his wonderful podcast, Second Act Stories. If a ’second act’ is to be part of your story, please know you’ll want to listen to Andy Levine’s Second Act Stories. You’ll learn to prepare well in advance to shore up your finances, pay off any debts and become accustomed to a different standard of living—perhaps living with less income on a trial run for a few months. You may need to mix volunteering with paid work or find part-time work that will provide health coverage, to ease your transition and the stress on your wallet. And you’ll need to create a new professional network in your community, well beyond the circle of former colleagues and contacts you spent decades establishing in your previous career. All this and more on Second Act Stories, from Andy Levine.

And my thanks always to you, my wonderful Not Old Better Show audience. Remember, stay safe everyone, practice smart social distancing, and Talk About Better. The Not Old Better Show. Thanks, everybody.
