I agree with you on the learning and growing quotation. At 49 years of age I decided to go  back to school and get that loong elusive degree. At the age of 54 I graduated with that degree and life hasn't been better. I would like to say that I am employed, but cannot as employment has been very hard to find for this now 56 year old man. I am the editor for two newsletters for clients. It is a start, but not really the big explosion of job offers and experience I was hoping for. Smiley Happy

 

 


@ghardin50 Ageism is real. Unfortunately.  And the writing business has changed ... a lot. Have you studied SEO and timeline marketing? With Google Analytics certifications under your belt you can get freelance and steady work. (I got both beginner and advanced certifications in one week. You can do it!)

 

Best wishes.
