ABOUT THE OVER 50 ROADMAP
Come along with us as we explore, and redefine, life over 50.
We are a brother and sister originally from New England. “Big Brother, or BB” is the elder brother and “Little Sister, or LS” is the little sister (with a several siblings in between). Like most siblings, there are many things on which we disagree. But we both agree that getting the most out of life, especially over 50, requires living with purpose, connections, wealth, and health.
Drifting along won’t cut it—we each want to live the life we choose, not a life for which we settled. The example we saw from our parents was more of a cautionary tale than a how-to guide, and times certainly have changed. As we tackle the issues common to people in their 50s—caring for aging parents, (and aging ourselves!), dealing with teenagers and young adults, career issues, menopause (well, at least for one of us!), health, fitness and finances—we hope to not only create our roadmaps but to also get you thinking about your own personal roadmap.
Come join us on the adventure!
WHO WE ARE
Little Sister (AKA LS) is married to her best friend of over 30 years and the proud mom of 4 adult children and two rescue pups. Having never decided what she wanted to be when she grew up, LS has served in the U.S. Air Force, been a project manager, a stay at home Mom, a technical writer, and a lawyer. She’s been a private pilot since she was 17 and flies both single engine aircraft and gliders. She is a voracious reader (mostly trashy romances), wannabe athlete and lover of all things ice cream. She is dabbling in retirement and focusing on living each day with humor, purpose, meaning and adventure. She loves to push the envelope in most things and considers it a good day when she asks “What could possibly go wrong?” at least once. Read More…
Big Brother (AKA BB) is a guy with seemingly infinite interests. He seeks new experiences whenever possible. From piloting supersonic jets to diving around the world to bungee jumping in New Zealand, there is always something new to try. He is very fortunate to have a wife and kids who share his thirst for adventure as well as a job as a commercial pilot which facilitates his wanderlust. When he isn’t travelling the world or exploring new interests, BB is an avid investor, voracious reader and a fitness fanatic. Read More…
