01:46 So molly, we are all prone to little white lies here and there, but what little white lie are you guilty of telling yourself? So I would say that the guilty little white lie that I’ve told myself at least after going through menopause and as I’ve gotten older, is that going through menopause and getting older, it’s just an equal sign for weight gain. You know, it was just going to happen. And so it sort of provided an excellent excuse for me not to have to work at it very hard.
02:18 And is that indeed an excuse? Yes. I have recently found out in this last. I’ve been, we’re on day 30 right now. I’ve been doing a low carb high fat diet for 30 days now and it seems that with a bit of effort, not even that much effort, I can actually lose weight. So clearly it isn’t just because. So is it is in fact an excuse and a little white lie. Yeah. Which kind of is just a fancy way are a long way of introducing our guest today because Caren Glasser is the founder of a movement, host of a live streaming show called the little white lie. Yeah, The super boomer lifestyle show and Caren, she’s just fantastic. First of all, she has, I mean the background and what she’s done and what she’s accomplished. It’s been. Yeah, that is a long resume. It is. She’s a best selling Amazon author. She’s written three books or four books. I think she has like eight recorded CD.s She was a children’s Rockstar and traveled around singing her own songs about self esteem and you know, really like teaching kids positive messaging all throughout the nineties. She now has this little white line network that has, is just growing by leaps and bounds and she also has her own hemp company, which is just fantastic as well. So all of this, and she’s just a, a mere 62 years old and she’s just almost, almost 62. Yes. And she’s going to just keep on going. I mean, I can’t imagine her stopping. She has so much energy and yeah. So I can’t wait to talk with her more. Yeah. And so let’s go ahead and speak with Caren Glasser.
04:12 Hi Caren. Hi Caren.
04:15 Hi guys, Great to be here.
04:16 Oh, we are so pleased to have you on here. It’s just I’ve been looking forward to talking to you and learning more about the little white lie network. Um, so it’s, uh, it’s such a great name and such a great, uh, I guess it’s a movement. Do you think of it as a movement?
04:30 I do now. I didn’t. When I started, when I started, it was all about me, you know, it was all about me and my white hair, my silver hair and it’s become a movement, which is kind of cool because it’s much more fun when it’s about other people, not just yourself.
04:44 We’re audio here, not video, but you’re white hair. Silver hair is. It’s actually quite lovely now. I think it looks stunning. I mean, why? I don’t know. I would love that.
04:55 You know what? It’s funny because when I finally decided to take the plunge and go white after 30 years of coloring my hair, I didn’t realize it was going to turn out as pretty as it is. And it really is. It’s actually a really cool color. It’s kind of silver, but my mother is 100 percent white and she started going white when she was 30. When I turned 30 and started going white, I went, I’m not having any of that, you know, back in those days, 30, 32 years ago, white hair was not something that got you hired, um, white hair was something that, that the, the media and, and our, our own generation would tell us, oh, don’t have white hair because you look old and you’re not going to get hired. So I had, I known it would look like this. I probably would’ve done it earlier. Um, but hindsight is always 20/20 and you know, I didn’t do it.
05:40 And I don’t think there’s. Yeah. And I think that still, I joke because my husband has a lot of gray in his hair now and you know, he would never think even once about coloring his hair. I mean, it’s such a, it’s such a double standard. I, on the other hand, you know, I’m just not there yet. I color, you know, I do have grays in my hair and eye color them.
05:58 And that’s the thing. I mean that’s what the movement is about. It’s not about the shoulds and you have to. It’s not what this is about. It’s not me saying I colored my hair gray, why didn’t you? It’s about choice. I don’t want somebody telling me that I have to have dark hair versus white hair because I’m not going to get hired or because the media wants me to dress a certain way. I want to have that choice and that’s what the movement is about it. You make the choice that’s best for you, not what other people are telling you.
06:25 Yeah. You know, at any age, and no matter what it is, whether it’s gray hair or your clothes or your income or your education or what have you, right. It should be all about doing you doing it that you do you. I’ll do me.
06:42 Don’t you think as we get older we get smarter to hopefully and we make better choices based upon the experience, the journey that we’ve been on. So I think it makes sense for us to be making these decisions for ourselves, not for somebody else to make those decisions.
06:55 Yeah, absolutely. But so you decided so you want to start a movement. You decided to go and start a digital network and I mean that’s not like your average. Oh, I think I’ll just go fire up a live streaming show?
07:11 Well, truth be known. I’ve been live streaming since the early nineties before live streaming was a thing back in the day. Back in those days I was not doing anything like I’m doing right now. I’m actually retired clergy woman and so when I would do services at the synagogue every Friday night we decided how cool would it be to stream the services live into assisted living homes and shut ins and hospitals where they the, the elderly or even those who were just confirmed could not actually make it to services. They could still participate by watching it and participated. I mean we were ahead of our time back then clearly because back then, you didn’t have like facebook where you push a button and there you were. You were live. I mean this was. You had satellites in and hard drives that bounced off all over and it was pretty, pretty cool back then. So I started back then, but back when, two years ago when I decided to do this, I had already been doing a live interview show for three years prior to that and it was done through other technology. Facebook live has only been around for a couple of years. I used youtube and I used some other technology to do it. Um, so it was a natural progression for me to do this, especially since, you know, for those of us in the personal development arena, talking about being authentic and looking in the mirror and realizing on camera you have this dark hair that you’ve been coloring every three weeks. I’m not authentic anymore. And that was the deciding factor that I needed to show up the way I was telling people and asking people to show up and the movement was born because of that.
08:42 Wow. Well, that is fantastic. So, I’m sorry, you just mentioned this. We’re sitting here, we’re recording on October 30th, and so we just had that horrific shooting in Pittsburgh last weekend and uh, being a person of Jewish faith, I am sure that is just something that was horrifying for you.
09:00 It’s horrifying. I mean, everything that’s going on right now is horrifying. Um, that this especially, I know people in the community. I know people who lost people. I know the rabbi, the that used to be, I mean, so when it touches that close to home and you feel so unsafe. Yeah. So you’ve got, you’ve got organizations in synagogues and a multi-denominational, uh, organizations that have come together in solidarity, right? Yeah. You know it. But does this prayer help in a situation like this? I’m not sure.
09:32 Yeah. Well, you know, hate is hate and hate has no religion or race or creed.
09:41 It’s just, it’s scary. It’s frightening. What did we tell our kids? What do we tell our kids? It’s not safe to go into your house of worship at this. To me that is just tragic.
09:51 Yeah. Well, and I won’t, uh, don’t even start me down the path of a automatic assault rifles. It’s a little side note, but I was actually in Las Vegas across the street from a country festival that was happening and uh, we could hear the guns. The gun going off my husband and thought it was a, an a helicopter flying. And so I’m, you know, it’s just, it’s, it’s, it’s craziness to me, it’s absolute absurdity. And. Sorry, I don’t want to go political here, but yeah, I don’t understand. No, no citizen in my right mind is, this is not a constitutional right to own an automatic automatic assault rifle.
10:34 It is a constitutional right to feel safe.
10:38 Yeah. Yes, exactly. And No, don’t go hand in hand. Yeah, right. So, all right, we’ve diverged. I will go back to the.. I know that’s the beauty of having a podcast and being the, you know.
10:54 You can do whatever you want.
10:55 We can talk about whatever we want. That’s right. Anyways, so we connected because in, in also as a part of the little white lie network, kind of get it. You’ve also got the super boomer lifestyle that is kind of the same. I mean, it’s uh, it’s, it’s one, are they one in the same? Are they hand in hand?
11:21 It is actually, it is the next step for the little white lie digital network. Um, this is the ability to carry those products. It’s a store. So the super boomer lifestyle is, is a store, um, but it carries items that are vetted by myself, things that we’re not telling you, you have to go put this lotion on and it’s going to be magic. You’re going to look like your five. But basically it’s a product that had been vetted for the super boomer and we call super boomers. These are people that have not taken no for answer they step out of their box or maybe there is no box. They take the risk, they go out there and they do it. And, and these are the products and the services that they recommend that helped them on their journey. And it was the next natural step for us in order to grow the brand. And so the super boomer lifestyle was, was born and we have super boomer. So a lot of the different people that I interview on my show, they could be classified as a super boomer. Dave Koz is a world renowned saxophonist. I mean the guy is amazing and he’s a boomer by the age range, right? We call it the super boomer because he has excelled just by saying yes. And that’s the message that we are trying to put out there is that you can be a super boomer too.
12:41 I think that’s, I mean obviously we share that same passion message. Um, we’re all about, you know, aging with optimism and really not seeing life as a decline or age as a limit to what you can do. It’s something that, you know, it’s really, we say we’re unageable and that we can, we can keep growing and creating and learning and you know, my dad is going to be 91 this January and he’s still doing new things and learning new things and you know, I can only hope that I’m setting my goals there and that’s what I want to do, and people really should. There’s no. The idea that we somehow have to turn everything off at, you know, whatever a preset age, whether it’s 55 or 65 or 70 or whatever, you know, that we’re suddenly no longer worthy of continued growth.
13:31 No, I mean I agree.
13:34 It’s totally is just absolute nonsense. And I think it’s, I always laugh because like I think the median age for presidents is like 73, I mean it’s something, it’s something incredible yet we have, I mean doesn’t that just seem absolutely like the biggest irony in this country. And like somehow the leader of our nation should be someone in their seventies but yet the rest of us.
13:58 But I do think it’s changing. I do think it’s changing. I mean look, look there are a lot of people out there like, like me and like you guys there that are out there saying doesn’t have to be that way. You should love the age you are in. Not Be defined by the age of, you know, when I hear people say that 50 is the new 30 is the new 50 or or I don’t even know what that means. Exactly. Because when you think about what does somebody look like, act like behave like at a certain age, they’re not criteria. There are people that are old souls and young soul. There are people that at age 30 they already look like and appear like they’ve lived a full life and they have an old soul right there and they feel like they’re 90 and the way they make decisions. And then there of course the people that are 60 that behave like there’s three and you know, so I don’t, it’s not being defined by the age that you are. I’d backup, you know I’m going to be hell. Am I going to, I’m going to be 62 in November this next month I’m going to be 62 and. And yet I forget what, how old I am. Half the time I tell people that I’m a year older than I am because I don’t remember. I don’t think about it as a, I happened to be a 62 year old woman. I’m just a woman who happens to have white or gray hair. I happen to do x amount of things and oh by the way, I’m 62 who cares and that’s really how I feel. I don’t want people to define me, so I’m out there saying I’m old or older. I don’t use them because old is a. What does that mean? But I’ll say I’m 62 and they’ll go, no you’re not. And it’s like, who lies about that? Who lies about that? There’s 60 to 60 or they’re 50 now. When my hair used to be dark hair, I did look a whole lot younger than I would say people think that I look now, but even now I get stopped and people will say. How old did you say you are? Because they have this predefined picture in their head that 60 looks like a certain age.
15:53 And what I found as we’ve been researching this whole project, the five for life, is that this whole like notion of getting older, right? People are like, they don’t want to talk about it, they don’t want to, they want to ignore it. They want to. There is a chasm between, there’s not as many people that are like you that are saying, Hey, I’m 62 and proud of it. There’s even at that, they’re not saying I’m 62 and I realize that, uh, probably going to be 82 and what do I need to do now to make sure that 82 feels as good as 62 because it doesn’t, you know, it, it doesn’t just happen and it does require action. And I think, I know as you, as you are, you realize in, in as a proponent of self care and motivation for people, that’s the thing that I think people just need to, to understand so much better than they do is that. Getting older happens. It is happening to us all. It’s, you know, beats the alternative as everyone should like to say, right? You’re either getting older or you’re not, and if you’re not, that’s not a good thing. So, but you need to look ahead and do that in a way that is optimistic and also realistic in terms of saying, hey, I want to be the best that I can be at 70, at 80. So then what you have to do now so that you reap those benefits as you get older.
17:25 Right. And visualize yourself in the being that, in doing that, a colleague of mine who passed away recently, Cindy Joseph, I don’t know if you know who she is, Young cosmetics. I had her on my show and um, she made an impact on me in a way that nobody else. And I’d had a lot of people on my show, but she, she’s talks about, talked about people that say I’m anti aging or, or the cosmetics, anti aging. She goes, what does that mean? You can’t be anti aging because if you’re anti aging, you’re dead, right? You want to be pro age. And she talks about that was her whole movement was called the pro age revolution and it continues on without her amazing, amazing woman. I mean, she, I don’t know her story.
18:09 I know the boom cosmetics and I know her name, but I don’t know her whole story.
18:13 Um, she passed about four months ago she was 67, 67 years old, but prior to that she was the top makeup artists for all the runway models around the world. I mean she was the one that literally would beautify the models that would run and when she turned 49 she said, you know what, I’m sick and tired, sort of my story. I’m sick and tired of my having to color my hair. I’m just going to let it go. And it took about a year and she was walking down the streets of New York City in Manhattan and she was stopped by a top agent at Ford models and they said, would you be interested in modeling here? She was, after all these years of doing what she did, would you be considered modeling? She ends up modeling and walking the runway for dolce and Gabbana and went on to become the top model in the, the certain age and to, to the point. I mean, if you look her up and you look and see her, she’s all over every ad out there, every older ad with the beautiful longs, Silver Locks, beautiful, gorgeous woman who wore no makeup and that was the whole thing. I mean her boom cosmetics, she decided that, you know, people are asking me how do you maintain that youthful whatever, and she says, I don’t put anything on my face. That’s how I maintain it. So she came out with boom and that’s who was born. So that people could be like her basically.
19:40 Yeah, I know. Like I said, I’ve heard of her story. Um, I’m sure that was, must have been an absolutely phenomenal interview. I will have to go listen to that with her. And she’s like you said, it’s another district, another example of someone at a certain, you know, as an older. I mean, I don’t even know. 50 doesn’t even seem older anymore. But yeah, it’s funny when you were seeing she passed away at 67, your automatic thought is “oh, that’s young”.
20:07 And that is exactly what. And have times changed. We didn’t use to say that, did we? So that’s how I know times have changed because our attitudes are changing. When you hear that and you go, she died so young. I don’t know about you, but my grandmother died when she was 50. I mean, so I don’t know. When I think about things like that. 67 seems like it would have been an older age, but now we say.
20:31 No, it isn’t actually the, you know, in our parents’ generations, like 71 was like, that was like life expectancy. So 67 really isn’t that far off, but we are sort of now I’m. Well, I mean statistically speaking it is true. I say it all the time in our, in our information is that if you reach the age of 65, now. Yeah. Now statistically speaking, your odds are very good to get to 85. Yeah.
20:56 And I’m counting on that.
20:58 Good. Yeah, me too. So that’s the plan, right? Keep it up. So, um, tell me a little bit more about the background that, I mean, so we heard you say that you were previously clergy and also I know you also, you’ve written some books and you’ve also recorded some records. You’ve got quite a, like I said, multi-passionate would be a good description..
21:23 Yeah. So, uh, back in the day when, before I was a clergywoman I was, I was a children’s. We’ll rock and roll artists. And I was, I’d been on Disney channel, uh, on the, you know, the actual television. Um, I was with rhino records, kid Rhino and um, I have eight children cds out and for about 10 years I traveled back and forth across the country going to where kids went for those venues to do live concerts. We talking about zoos and um, the malls and things like that. But my career culminated in a show at Carnegie Hall, so that was Kinda cool. But all of the music was, and they’re all, for the most part I would say about 80 percent were original songs. So don’t do drugs. Was one of the name of the songs or songs about family. And I did some covers as well and it was a wonderful, wonderful time in my life at the same time I had a, uh, a school during the school time and afterschool time and we were hired by the public school sector to come in with my teachers. I had over 50 teachers working for me and we were all over Los Angeles and the private and public sector. So I was doing music. Music is probably what is my most favorite passion ever. So there’s a theme that runs through my careers. I did that then when I was a clergy woman, I was a cantor. I sang, that was my, that was what I did then. Um, and then I kind of rolled over from being a cantor when 2009, when I retired from that position, after moving, it was like, what do I do now? You know, what, what does somebody do that’s done all of that, what do you do? And I rolled into some, to my next career, which is promote your passion and that’s the name of my actual company. Promote your passion. And from that came a lot of things. I did a lot of events. We did 20 events in 2012. All back and forth across the country. Uh, business events. Um, I wrote several books during that time. I opened a publishing house. So a lot of different things happen that just, I kinda just let my imagination run and wherever it takes me next, I say yes and figure it out afterwards. And that’s kind of how it happened.
23:22 I love that. I have to say that’s one of the things too, that when we talk with people and especially as we’re trying to motivate baby boomers and older people, what in the world is stopping you right now? You have such. The world is everyone’s oyster. There is really with the Internet and with technology, there is literally nothing that you can do with a bit of figuring out. Yeah. You know, passion.
23:50 I think it’s fear. People get fearful. I’d think they get fearful that they can’t do it, that they have this great idea they can or, or that they can do it. And then what might be successful and what does that look like and can I actually,
24:07 yeah, I can really relate to that. Actually. Actually fear is a, is definitely part of it. You know, it’s funny because this podcast, we are a part of a couple of groups and you know, there’s a group called she podcasts all about women podcasters and things of that nature and, and people share things. They express fears like that. And one of the most common things, I think our last, our last guest, her name is Katherine Nicola, she’s fantastic. Fantastic podcast called nothing much happens and it’s stories for grownups. Bedtime stories for grownups and it’s literally meant to put you to sleep. She’s a yoga instructor and within the first she’s got over a million downloads and she’s only been at it for like five minutes. I could get like literally like three months. I mean it’s, you should. She’s incredible now. She’s getting a lot of questions from a would be, you know, women, a podcasters to her wanting to launch a podcast and they’re saying to her, but what if nobody listens? What if nobody. I put it out there and nobody listens and her answer is, well, I can guarantee you this. If you don’t do it, nobody will listen.
25:13 I mean, what’s. I like to put everything under the umbrella of this expression. What’s the worst thing that can happen if you do it? Can you live with it at the end of the day? I mean, if you are prepared to whatever the worst case scenario is, like for instance, if the worst case scenario in this case is nobody listens, so you in the meantime you now have this great content that you put together, the uh, you know, have an audio or a video, however you’ve done it and now you can repurpose it for other things if it doesn’t work as a podcast. So what’s the worst case scenario? And if you can live with it, don’t do it for that. I said don’t do it if you can’t live with the worst case scenario, but if you can live with everything else, why would you not?
25:55 Yeah, you just have to go for it. I mean, we also have had people tell us, oh, you know, you have to spend hours every week on the Seo of your, of the show notes and the titles of your podcast and getting it. Somebody said the took 18 hours, 18 hours to edit one. We’re like looking at him like, we don’t do that. No, we don’t do that.
26:17 I mean, what they’re telling you is there’s different ways to approach stuff like this. I, I tend to be just like you. I’m not going to get into the minutia of did I? Did I get rid of that one little sound over here? Did I put this? I don’t think personally, and I think you’re gonna find out the same thing. I don’t think people are listening for that. They’re not looking for perfection. What they’re listening for is something to motivate them, to inspire them, to drive them to do something that they feel like they wasted their time when they took that time to listen to your podcast or my. My show. I don’t think they really care if you’re a little hair is out of place. I really don’t think they care.
26:54 No, I’m pretty sure. In fact I know that they don’t. I mean we have not, you know, it’s when well one, we don’t, we don’t do video which is probably good.
27:05 There you go. But, but, but so, but you do and I mean I’m going to behind the scenes. I mean we are actually recording this with a video here and you’re going to take the audio and that becomes your podcast and I think that’s great because you’re repurposing and I’m the repurposing queen, but I might suggest that you do some outtakes from this as you’re sitting here. And this will be a great way to promote your podcast because the data says just so in case you were wondering, people will watch video up to two and a half minutes. Less than 10 seconds on static text. So I say do video.
27:39 Yep. It’s no, you’re, you’re absolutely right. We know that. Did we mention that we tried to record a video this morning. It took longer than two and a half minutes and we have zero minutes of stuff?
27:52 You have a lot of outtakes.
27:54 Oh we have a lot of outtakes. Many. We have a lot of laughing, lots of laughing, we do laugh a lot, which is good. Makes us, you know, it is, it’s one of the things that we enjoy most about this whole prospect. Okay. So I know you mentioned, obviously you mentioned Cindy Joseph, Dave Koz some other people. Tell us more about the guests, some of the most recent guests and, and you know, what are you looking to in the future for the guests on the little white lie?
28:18 Well we had um, Hal Elrod from the miracle morning, I don’t know if you’re familiar with that book has been written in 37 different languages. It’s all around the world and, and it’s, and actually I think you guys would really like it. It, his whole thing is getting up early in the morning and doing a set of seven things and they’re called savers and it’s, you know, exercise and meditation and silence and all different kinds of things. But they were, he was on the show with his writing partner Honoree. So that was a phenomenal show. I just absolutely love that. And then, and then we have the ying and the Yang, and then I had a woman on who’s a patient advocate who has had cancer for 17 years.
28:53 And actually I saw that. I watched that one.
28:57 She is an amazing
28:58 She herself. Has had cancer for 17 years? Oh my!
29:02 And, and basically basically, you know, she’s, she’s, uh, you know, no bull kind of lady. So, you know, she’s the first one that will tell you that you’re not fighting cancer. It’s not like you’re, you know, you’re not at this is she talks about the language of how people talk about cancer and how to get the right support. And now she’s amazing. I have Lesley Zemeckis, joining me next Wednesday. She’s married to Robert Zemeckis time director, producer. He’s a huge, um, uh, she writes, she’s got a lot of different books out. She’s very well known in her own right, but she does a whole thing on burlesque. And um, her newest book is called the feuding fan girls, which is a burlesque fan. I’m a, what are, they’re called fan dancer with the fan dancing. Those people. So she’s going to be on the show, you’re going to be joining me, molly and a couple of weeks. I’m really excited about that.
29:57 We are too.
29:59 Joan Ryan on a couple of weeks ago. She did a show for a Carnegie Hall. She’s an amazing singer, artists theater movie star and she did a show. She was the executive producer and showing in Carnegie Hall. So I try to be kind of well rounded in the people that come on the show so that we have something for everyone. We hit things like retirement, um, that, that we’re taught that you work your way up to retirement, right retire. And then what, what are you supposed to do? So I, I throw out the notion is maybe we’re not working towards retirement, we’re just working towards the next thing that we’re going to do.
30:34 Yeah, I like that. That’s one of the things we like is the next chapter or write, you know, however you want to describe it, but that, that nine to five corporate job, if you want to put it in that, once finished that, what is your next thing?
30:51 What’s the next thing? What are you going to do next? I’ve had some celebrities on the show. We, um, I happened to be a guest on a very popular, a Bravo show called below deck Mediterranean. I was one of the guests on the show and so I actually ended up meeting and became friendly and stayed friendly with some of the cast members. So I’ve had Hannah Barrier on the show. She has a new line of exercise clothes that she’s doing. So when bring her back on the Captain Sandy, the first female captain of the other yacht who is very respected and for me as a woman that was in the glass ceiling, is there one (yes there is) and do you know how she kind of crashed through it? So it’s been kind of fun. I, I don’t stick to one kind of guest or another. I just, if, if something strikes my fancy and they go, yeah, that’s something that I think my audience might want to hear about. We bring them on and that’s it.
31:41 I love it. I love it. We’re super excited. We’re excited for the opportunity because, uh, you know, what we’re doing and connecting with your audience is just means the world to us. So
31:51 I’m so excited. I love the journal that you guys are coming out with. It’s amazing and I can’t wait to share it with the audience. It’s going to be pretty cool.
31:58 Awesome. So tell us in terms of, so we’ve got the super boomer lifestyle, we’ve got the little, a little white lie digital network. Did it go, oh, so you’re 62, 63? We’re not sure you’re in that. You’re
32:15 I’m going to be 62 in a few weeks, but I also have a regular job to.
32:20 Oh, you do? Oh, just because you have. No because you have so much spare time.
32:25 Um, yeah, I guess that’s it. Um, I’m actually the coo of a hemp company. Oh, oh yeah.
32:31 Oh, I love that. I just was telling Angela there’s a, um, I was reading about hemp for pets. Yes. Yeah, because, so, you know, I have an older dog who is 13 and she’s just getting some issues in her back and her hips. I can just tell she’s, you know, she’s not as comfortable as she used to be and I was looking at that because it seems like there’s some real valid and we have another friend too. We know that she uses it. I don’t know how old again, older dog and she says that it works a. Treat
33:01 makes. The whole thing is, is that we all have endocannabinoid systems, animals and humans. We all have them inside of our bodies. And so cbd, Cannabidiol, which is so our CBD that we use has no thc in it. None of the psychotropics, nothing that gets you high, not even the below legal limit. There is no THC in it. So the studies do tell us that cbd helps our endocannabinoid system that we have within our own body that dogs have and cats have as well to help them work optimally and that. So that’s what you’re looking for. Is it simply just like a booster and it works. I mean, cbd is definitely something that works. Um, we’re our governments and are, just catching up to it at this point. It’s, it’s here, it’s just not 100 percent here yet.
33:47 Gotcha. Gotcha. Well, I think that you are amazing just in terms of all the, you know, multi-passionate, multicareer, multi, you know, it’s a, it’s a testimony to a life well lived and well living. You know, you can’t. That’s, that’s amazing. And that’s so inspiring for, for us, for anyone listening who knows what you’re going to be doing in 10 years from now.
34:14 I didn’t know I’d be doing this. I did not know. I’ve been doing the CBD thing. I mean literally it just happened and I moved from my wonderful home in Napa, California at the beginning of the year to step into this position in San Diego. Now it’s not poor me. San Diego was a wonderful place to live in, but I didn’t think I would be doing that at 62. I actually thought, believe it or not, I thought I would be quote unquote retired. My husband retired back in October of last year. He’s older than I am. He’s 72 and I thought, you know what? I want to live life. I want to enjoy life. And that’s what I’m going to do. Well, you know what, sometimes what you think you’re going to do is now what you end up doing. And here I am. No, a year later,
34:53 Angela and I both have four children, so we have eight between us. But I have four boys. I know. It’s. Wow. Just say it out loud.
35:02 God bless you both.
35:03 Yes. You know, I think it’s a lesson I’ve, I’ve always told my kids from a very young age is that, you know, you got to be like a willow tree. You got to be flexible. You gotta know you gotTa. Whenever the wind blows you gotta be able to, to bend. And that’s how life is, you know, that’s what keeps you going. And if you get to that idea of I’m going to be retired when I’m x, you know, gets to firmly planted in your head. You start to lose the vision of what life could really be like this kind of. But even the, that you’re. Hopefully it, it, it isn’t a job that requires you being in the office everyday at.
35:42 It does. Unfortunately it does. Um, because they run the place, so I mean it does, but you know what, I am not locked into anything and that’s the other thing I think that you know, your listeners and our listeners really need to hear is that you go for it and you evaluate as you continue and if it, if it still fits the year later, great, if it doesn’t, you know, there’s no, there’s no shame, there’s no harm in doing something to the best of your ability. I don’t mean being a squirrel and trying everything bright shiny object that comes in your way. That’s not what I’m suggesting. What I’m suggesting is decide what you want and when opportunities come your way, if it goes through your filter of yes, it fits in with what I’m looking to do, even if it seems to be much bigger than anything you ever thought you would do. It’s your filter, it’s your body saying, yeah, get your gut, go and do it. Try it.
36:38 Yeah. That’s awesome. That’s great advice no matter what. Yeah, well, Caren, it has been just so much fun talking to you. So much fun to hear your multi-passionate life.
