#175: Neil Offen's book, "Building a Better Boomer", offers laugh-out-loud advice for the generation caught between ChatGPT and Betamax VHS.
Connect with Neil Offen Still Funny After All These Years. Neil Offen has been a humor columnist for four decades and in two countries.  He’s also a card-carrying member of the baby boomer generation. And now he’s making affectionate and hilarious fun of his generation’s attempts to keep up, seem younger and maybe still be around for the launch of the iPhone 211 Pro. His new book, Building a Better Boomer, offers laugh-out-loud advice for the generation caught between ChatGPT and Betamax VHS. There’s tongue-in-cheek guidance on how boomers can better see, hear, eat, exercise, sleep, retire, and even remember better.   Building a Better Boomer is not just for those born in the forties, fifties, or sixties. It’s also for all those who have a boomer in their lives. As bestselling author Steven Petrow says, “This is a book for all boomers, and those who care for and love them." https://tinyurl.com/3tjmjkfj https://tinyurl.com/yt7cazby https://neilhowardoffen.wixsite.com/neil-offen buildingabetterboomer@gmail.com Connect with Host Terry Lohrbeer Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2658545911065461/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/terrylohrbeer/ Instagram: kickassboomers Twitter: @kickassboomers Website: kickassboomers.com   Connect to Premiere Podcast Pros for podcast editing: premierepodcastpros@gmail.com   LEAVE A REVIEW and join me on my journey to become and stay a Kickass Boomer!

#157: How Ghulam recovered from the loss of family members and began to feel whole again and happy.
Connect with Ghulan Fernandes I used to think that old people died, and other people died, until I experienced multiple significant losses. I was stuck in the pain of grief for years. At times I felt lost, empty, and hopeless. Lack of the right knowledge, tools and processes meant that I didn’t know how to move forward. Sometimes I wondered what the point of life was. People around me didn’t know what to say and would often come out with platitudes or unhelpful comments. During my quest in looking for answers, I explored many avenues. Counselling helped some, but when I discovered an action based step by step process for handling grief, it made a huge difference. It gave me a structured, systematic, and gentle process to discover and then deal with my unresolved grief. Everyone’s journey is unique. Comparisons are unhelpful. I am passionate about helping others on their grief journey, so they don’t spend years stuck in pain and therapy. I want to be a beacon of hope, and proof that it is possible to regain your sense of purpose and joy. It is possible to move forward. We only have one life. Get the help you need to make sure it is a life well lived! You can book a free discovery call on Ghulam's website to learn more about how her programs might be able to help you with your grief.

#156: Delaney Parker's new erotic novel "grace" has the main character with multiple sclerosis and desperately wants to have a second child.
Connect with Delaney Parker Hello. My name is Delaney Parker, a writer and the author of the sexually charged, emotionally raw erotic fiction, GRACE. My life experiences as a woman, a mother and of having Multiple Sclerosis have given me a view that is unique and refreshing. My writing allows my characters to be themselves with their true feelings. Just like people in life, my characters possess quite layered personalities. Everyone has fine points and flaws, no one is all good or bad. We might find ourselves rooting for the bad guy then realize, it’s because we relate. People should know that although Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic illness, those of us who dance with it are more than our pain. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis myself fifteen years ago, I am the mom of two terrific kids and the keeper of my ridiculously cute pile of pets. There is triumph after setbacks. We live beyond medical equipment or our prescriptions. See us as more than a patient or handicapped person. In us is a desire to feel whole and respected not despite but inclusive of our adaptations.  All of us have dreams, desires, goals and hopes, albeit they may be different for each person. We have obstacles to do our best to overcome and find acceptance with ourselves for who we are inside . Even when I can no longer dance, I will feel the rhythm. And, I will remember the steps by heart and my heart can still be moved.  This is why I wrote the new adult novel, GRACE.  http://booksbywomen.org/on-writing-grace-by-delaney-parker/ linkedin.com/in/delaney-parker-797aa9177 https://www.tiktok.com/@deeparker50   Connect with Host Terry Lohrbeer  https://www.facebook.com/groups/2658545911065461/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/terrylohrbeer/ Instagram: kickassboomers Twitter: @kickassboomers Website: Kickass Boomers   Connect to Premiere Podcast Pros for podcast editing: premierepodcastpros@gmail.com
