Many of us know Rich from his stellar work as Managing Editor of NextAvenue, where he wrote and curated stories about money and work so helpful to those in the encore stage of life, stories that advanced a different narrative about older adults, meaning and purpose. Since his “unretirement” at the end of 2021, Rich has been the embodiment of what encore life can be. Whether it’s continued writing, co-hosting a podcast, teaching college students about digital media content development strategies, or volunteering, Rich is demonstrating the value that older adult experience and connections bring to the world.
