    We've all heard of Empty Nest and for some, even held some anxiety about what it may entail. Unknowns can feel uncomfortable. In this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour of enlightYOUment, we discover the beauty of filling life and that nest with bounteous dreams and perhaps even lining your pockets. We welcome author Matt Meline Sr., CFP®, Founder and CEO of PrairieFire Wealth Planning, who joins us to share not only his 30 years’ experience in the financial services field, but also how he's helped thousands of people focus on their dreams and values and how he faced his own Empty Nest journey. It was after experiencing that, he decided to write a book to help prepare others for the emotional and financial experiences ahead. He understood that empty nest was a life cross road and he wanted to be a symbolic flag holder, showing others which roads to take, sharing a road map and guide book as they navigated the journey ahead. He takes them on a fun road trip rich with tips, wisdom, and experience from one whose been there and done that – bumper sticker and all to prove it – on the back of the minivan – he’s putting up for sale. Yes, he even discusses that! Aging Rebels will so enjoy this candid convo as Matt sheds light on myth busting, FOMO, the emotional side of having university-bound kids and how to deal with what you're feeling all the while. From downsizing to feeling crushed in between that sandwich generation, we cover it all! It's an authentic dialogue with great advice that every parent can benefit from and our time together is a reflection of what is found between the pages of his book, Empty Nest Full Pockets. In addition to helping people achieve their financial goals and dreams, Matt Meline Sr., CFP® founded PrairieFire in 2019 during his own empty nester journey. Inspired by the idea of a Prairie Fire sparking new growth by clearing remnants of the past, Matt’s approach helps families strip away old financial beliefs and preconceptions they’ve built up over time so they can focus on the goals that matter most with a clear, renewed sense of purpose. Matt believes in a life founded on passion, purpose and dreams and even talks about the importance of a having “fun jar!” To learn more about him, his work, or purchase his book, Empty Nest Full Pockets, also available at your favorite book retailers, visit him at www.prairiefirewealth.com.

    In this week’s Aging GreatFULLy power-hour we explore simple yet bountiful ways to receive the most out of life in the present while preparing thoughtfully for what is to come – our inevitable future passing. Host Holley Kelley, a gerontologist, Fellow in Thanatology, and Founder of the Latter-Life Planning Institute, puts the spotlight on some of her professional work and discusses facets of her book, Sunrises and Sunsets: Final Affairs Forged with Flair, Finesse and FUNctionality, and shares the many ways planning can bring peace of mind and newfound passion-borne freedom to living extraordinary in the present. While Aging GreatFULLy often emphasizes innumerable ways Aging Rebels can center themselves in Best Life Now Practices, Kelley reminds listeners to make a habit of setting daily intentions alongside their smiles and gratitude practices. She focuses on things that one can do to live with peace and concord not only in the present, but so one can die with a clear conscious, regret free, as well as ensure those they leave behind can receive closure and live with resolution too, referencing her novel “Kick-the-Bucket-List”. She also discusses ways to ensure you’re living everyday life, not just going through the motions, such as working that Bucket List emphasizing that each day is a gift and to be cherished and honored through our grand living! Kelley acknowledges that many people are challenged to know where to begin when it comes to basic planning and that it’s easy to just "not think about it" or leave it to another day. Noting there’s not day of the week called “someday” she gives a prod, elbow and on-air nudge for everyone who hasn’t yet done so, to complete their advance directives and even reviews one on air, sharing what it entails to try to answer some of the questions many may have about doing so. From discussing changes as we age, to thoughts about personal items, funeral planning, memorials and your many wishes in general, including thoughts you’d like to leave behind with those you love, it’s an important conversation for anyone who believes they may someday die. Life and Death Matters—Matter. And Kelley covers them A-Z in her book, Sunrises and Sunsets…well, actually, her acronym for covering them is CREATED PEACE, her innovative 12-Step process allowing everyone to plan through a soulful and enriching journey. Her process goes beyond the physical and technical and connects one spiritually, mentally and emotionally to truly discover and explore Life and Death Matters in a way that is gentle, compassionate and transformational. For those interested, Sunrises and Sunsets: Final Affairs Forged with Flair, Finesse and FUNctionality book is available on Amazon Prime, Barnes & Noble or you can ask for it at your local booksellers. For exclusive autographed copies available in the continental U.S., visit her store at: https://www.latterlifeplanninginstitute.com/store/c11/Books_-_Sunrises_and_Sunsets_Single_%26_Bulk.html. Kelley has been changing the way people around the world plan for the end while inspiring grand new beginnings.

    Let’s face it, our world can be fraught with worry, stress and anxiousness. We all experience these emotions from time to time or even for some, live with it on a regular basis. What if you could learn to live happily with anxiety? Meet Abbe Greenberg, MCIS, and Maggie Sarachek, MSW, (AKA, Abs and Mags, The Anxiety Sisters), chronic anxiety sufferers and authors of the acclaimed book, THE ANXIETY SISTERS’ SURVIVAL GUIDE: How You Can Become More Hopeful, Connected, and Happy (Penguin Random House), who are changing the way people around the globe are managing and – living happily with anxiety! In THE ANXIETY SISTERS’ SURVIVAL GUIDE, they offer an arsenal of real-world, non-judgmental, research-based techniques, exercises, and insights—without the clinical, confusing, one-size-fits-all approach that isn’t so helpful when your mind is racing, your anxiety is in overdrive, and you just want to get back to feeling normal…ish. Despite the obstacles, Abs and Mags have learned how to live happily with their anxiety and can teach readers to do the same. In this must-listen power-hour of enlightYOUment, Abs and Mags share their Secret Sauce to thriving with anxiety – acceptance, agency and connection. And they even offer tips for combating anxiety and panic attacks with their novel advice for building your own special “Spin Kit!” They talk about your super powers, and remind every listener they are not alone in their anxiety journey as they discuss just how widespread and far-reaching the effects and statistics are regarding anxiety. They put the spotlight on the importance of community. And while they may be the Anxiety Sisters, they have created quite a family of sisters, brothers, friends and like-minded supporters founded on relationships with a special understanding and bond with more than a 200-thousand-plus community who ride the waves of anxiety, tethered in friendship and fellowship. Abs and Mags speak to the importance of optimism, mindset, and offer many tips to help with our worry, stress and anxiety challenges because as they share, anxiety isn’t going anywhere. In fact, In THE ANXIETY SISTERS’ SURVIVAL GUIDE, readers learn 31.1% of adults in the U.S. will experience an anxiety disorder at some point in their lives. Abs and Mags believe in “prepping for panic” because they have journeyed with it throughout their lives and want to share their experiences and wisdom with others so everyone can live more abundant and happily and not be barricaded by the many challenges that come with anxiety. Listener’s will cherish their sage approaches allowing us to live more fully in the present with what life brings our way! It's a timely, educational, wisdom-rich, authentic hour from beginning to end that every Aging Rebel is certain to enjoy and be more empowered to dial back the stress!
