Afraid to get older? The people you’re about to meet in this episode of the Growing Bolder Radio Show will show you that not only is aging nothing to dread, it’s something to look forward to. You’ll also see how it’s never too late to find new love, new careers and a new lease on life.

Virginia says the film has not only erased any fears she may have once had about aging, it’s made her excited for the next, liberating chapters in her life.
Alice Duffy says she never even dared to dream of appearing on Broadway, but at the age of 81, that’s exactly what happened. She reveals what it was like to make her debut on the Great White Way in her 80s and how her new career has given her a new lease on life, despite suffering some severe losses in the past few years.
