6. I'm 67 and looking for a job

In my market - Denver - I rarely even get an email back much less an interview.

First of all, I'm old.

Secondly, I'm a woman.

Here, they hire young and cheap and don't care about my years of experience and how I can run circles around all of them!

Most important thing you can do right now: Take care of yourself in every way you possibly can.

My new mantra: "Don't wast time doing things that don't move you toward your goal." This includes mindless TV, hours reading Twitter and being pissed off at what's happening to our country, regretting anything and gossiping with friends.

I just read an awesome book that really helped me. I signed up for Audible and got it free. The author reads the book and his Scottish accent makes it so good. I try to listen to a few minutes of it every day.

Here's the link on Amazon:

Hang in there. Never surrender. Never stop asking for help.
You'll get there!
