Age Got to do With It?
Living life and defying the myths of aging, Joan Kennedy, grandmother
& great-grandmother has lived three lifetimes of career changes
from motherhood, to fashion, to the discovery of writing and speaking.
She spreads her philosophy with books and speaking engagements
across the country. Her five major factors in living the good
life with energy and productivity are simply:
* Protect your health, at all costs. Health is your number
* Avoid the ruts. Sameness is aging.
* Dispel the myths of aging. They're a waste of time
* Keep a positive attitude. It's the only sane decision you
* Keep your dreams alive. Set goals. Stay out of the past.
With longevity increasing and old age coming later and later,
it's getting harder and harder to say for certain how old one
has to be, to be old. Worrying and being negative about aging
is a complete waste of time.
The goal for all of us is a life of productivity, fun, good health
Ignore the myths and plot your own destiny. It’s up to
you to take a realistic view of yourself and determine your opportunities.
What's Age Got to do With It? is a quick inspirational
read for anyone eager for change. Joan says, “It’s
up to us to face the future with optimism, excitement and a sense
of adventure. Your life deserves purpose, meaning and fulfillment.”
What's Age Got to do With It? helps you realize, appreciate and
use the powerful resources within. All it takes, Joan says, “is
the right attitude and some achievable goals.”
Calling the book a must read for anyone, regardless of age or
gender, Ellajane Knott, columnist, reporter and author, describes
Joan's book as “a literary romp, brimming with uplifting
thoughts, ideas and simple solutions you can use to help you make
your life more than it is.”
Joan Kennedy is a professional speaker, seminar leader and author

For two years, she presented daily inspirational and motivational

fun and laughter. Good health is primary.
A strong and insightful speaker, her content is rich with personal

Joan was a stay-at-home mom for eighteen years. At 45 she went
back into the workforce. Since she was a former model, she landed
a job as an assistant fashion coordinator.
At 50, she became a motivational speaker and published her first
book, I Don’t Want Much From Life, I Want More!
At age 65, she had a house fire at 3 o’clock in the morning.
Her office was in her home and over-night, fifteen years of work
was destroyed. Joan thought that she would never be able to start
over again, not at 65. One day, in AARP’s monthly magazine,
she came across a statistic that changed the way she perceived
herself. The statistic was, “The fastest growing age group,
in this country, are people in their 80's.” She knew at
that moment, she could start over again. After all, she was only

Joan firmly believes that no one should drop out of life at any
time, let alone 65. In fact, as long as you live, there isn’t
a set date or line in the sand that says “you’re finished”!
