I love and am intrigued by this...would love to write about it for 'the improvised life' but am wondering where I can find more info..i.e. is this your dad's idea/project, and where does he want to head with it...what's Nextrackers website meant to do... I emailed him via YouTube but am not sure if the email went through...Can you direct me?
ps: love your site

This is a great video, and very relevant to a project I am working on called "Transforming Life After 50" with the California State library. I will share this link with our online community, thank you!

Definitely! Boomers are the most creative batch with original ideas. The boomers make up today's generation.

Inspiring. At age 54 I decided I wanted to draw. I am now drawing and watercoloring. And selling my work. I love it. I think you lose your sense of fear as you get older. I love being in my 50's...it only gets better.

In the corporate world there is a bias against boomers. There is a target on our backs. We are too "old" and expensive. I have many friends that were "let go" and forced into "retirement" and replaced by younger people.

This was the motivation for my husband and I to think of what we would like to do and create a business around it. It's fun and scary at the same time. It is also liberating. My mother once said that being in her 50's was like a second wind. I am approaching 60 and want to fly!
