Meet Some of Our Everyday Disruptors
Are you breaking barriers in your life? How do you continue to fight ageism — no matter what age and circumstances? Here are some fellow Disruptors we wanted to share with you. We look forward to highlighting yours!
“At 68, I’m grateful to be working as an entrepreneur and executive coach to many young people during my journey.”
— Olivia Simons
“At 43, I developed a treatment that reversed my rare autoimmune disease. I’ve had to learn all of this on my own.”

— Ed Harris
“At 56, after getting my BFA, I went to work in China for an interior design firm. Now, at 65, I’m starting my own firm here in the states.”
— Cynthia Leftwich
Keeping Up With Our Chief Age Disruptor
Planning to Live to 100 — with Dr. Phil
Jo Ann was a guest on the Dr. Phil show and discussed the many misconceptions around what it means to be old. Did you know that, according to demographics today, a 10-year-old born in the U.S. has a 50 percent chance of living to 104? The new “middle age” just may be 65. What’s needed to make the most of these “bonus years”? How about a positive attitude, thoughtful planning and seeing aging as a natural part of life!
