Savvy Senior Update
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted. I’ll try to be better at this. I can honestly say that, at 62 (I’ll be 63 on April 1st) I have never been as happy or as at peace in my life. So much has happened in the past few months and I am enormously grateful for all of it.
I have come to realize that Savvy Senior Services is the culmination of my life’s experience. It never occurred to me that, in my 60’s, I would synthesize all this knowledge and ability into working with seniors to help improve their lives. It never occurred to me that all of the businesses I started over the past thirty years (for which I had to learn how to do everything by myself) and all the experiences as a lay leader in a religious organization, would synthesize to make me so effective with seniors.
Over these years I have had to learn how to: use the computer; make power points and presentations and marketing materials; learn how to put up a web site and work with emails – how to customize them, save them; plus all of the financial organization required for businesses as diverse as imported Brazilian jewelry to interior design to energy efficiencies for businesses. I networked and created a presence for myself, yet none was fulfilling. And all of them were arduous to launch… all of them except Savvy Senior Services. This business virtually launched itself and doors continue to fly open with opportunities.
As a teenager, I thought I would like to work with seniors, but opportunities were scarce unless you were a caregiver or social worker and neither of those appealed to me. I knew I could teach, but really didn’t want to teach kids. Now, nearly fifty years later, I am an outstanding and well-liked teacher of technology and age-well strategies to those seniors whom I love so dearly.
Life Experience on Steroids
These are some of the skills I bring to you with Savvy Senior Services LLC. At the heart of all I do is my love for seniors. Maybe it’s because both of my parents are gone for a couple of decades and I crave the connection with elders. Maybe it’s because there is something within me that has always loved spending time with them.
Whatever it is, it is what compels me to be and do the most to help you and/or your parent(s) navigate this chapter of their life with dignity, meaning, purpose (and a dose of good humor) while staying as mentally sharp as current information allows us to be.
I welcome you to Savvy Senior Services, where we are old enough to have a past and young enough to have a future! How can I be of service to you?
