Welcome to The Leading Gen®!

- What will you do with the rest of your life? is a television series in its second season for and about baby boomers ages 40 through 100+ who defy traditional stereotypes about retirement, candidly share their challenges and solutions, and choose to thrive. We’ve renamed these trailblazers The Leading Gen!®. Click here to see two sample episodes.

Season 1, Episode 1: Five people ages 39-63 share their careful plans to achieve present and past happiness. Chris, age 60, and Bruce Maxson, age 63, bored with retirement, start a new venture -- an art gallery that becomes a national-award winner; Tina, age 39, and Danny Bartlett, age 46, reorganize their lives after his near-fatal illness and successfully work to become debt free; Brigitte and Mac Lopez, ages 48 and 53, tell how he felt "expendable" in the corporate world. They talk about their challenges and have found happiness as artists in their own American Indian gallery; Michael Thomas, age 54, who is fulfilling his life-long dream to become a real cowboy, explains how his careful planning helps him achieve his dream. Season 2, Episode 1: Eight people, ages 36-88 relate their philosophy, experiences and how they found happiness as maturing adults. A Barber Shop Quartet enjoys the camaraderie of singing together. June Gurnick, age 88, deals with the loss of her husband and how and why she and her five daughters serve the community. The Torres family lives in a multigenerational home, raises organic crops to sustain themselves, and values their family and William's Purple Heart award.

The programs from Series 1 and 2 have been shown to 3-6 million viewers on public television stations across the USA, parts of Canada, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The programs from both series have been repeated over 16,000 times!
