Changing the National Mindset
Negative thinking about aging must be replaced by a positive belief that people over 50 are a valuable resource with experience, expertise, seasoned judgement and proven performance that must be utilized to a much greater degree.

Center for Productive Longevity (CPL)

Bill Webster, Carol Gardner and Bud Sorenson in serious discussion

With high unemployment and low economic growth at present and projected for the foreseeable future, CPL has devoted the last four years to stimulating new-business creation for people 50+ where they are qualified and ready to continue adding value. The result not only enables this large and growing population segment to continue working but also contributes to increased employment and economic growth on the national level.
