By Susan Williams

In this week’s Trending Topics Talk, I am joined by Career Expert and Author, Eileen Williams from Feisty Side of Fifty and Mike Drak who is a Retirement Coach, Author and Public Speaker from Victory Lap Retirement.

We discuss a variety of different topics that have been trending over the past week;

Some highlights of what we discussed;

How Is Life Different Today for Millennials Versus Previous Generations

The Pew Research Center published some research on how life is now different for millennials today then it was for past generations. Some changes included levels of education, ages they are marrying and where they are living. We chat about this report and share some of our own perspectives of the challenges they may face.

Boomers Innovating Retirement

Similar to other times in their lives, baby boomers are transforming how they plan to live in their retirement. Flexible working conditions to embracing the sharing economy – they are doing things differently.

We discuss how we see retirement changing and where there may be some opportunities for both individuals and organizations.

Cannabis Use By Older Adults

Both the AARP and the Globe and Mail recently published articles about the increase use of cannabis by older adults to help them manage pain. We each share our thoughts on this practice along with the legalization of marijuana.
