Description

In the Western world, we have celebrations to mark life events in the first half of our lives--graduations, weddings, baby showers--but, we don't celebrate becoming middle-aged. Instead, we often bemoan the "midlife crisis." Turns out, that's the wrong way of looking at middle age. In this episode, Arthur is joined by Chip Conley, founder of the Modern Elder Academy, who has dedicated his life to helping people through the transition to the second half of life. They discuss how "middlescence" can be a joyful and fruitful time, if managed well and share some advice for having an even happier second half of life than the first.
