Second careers for older Mainers
We learn about people who choose new directions later in life, whether switching to a second career or a different focus in their work. What prompts these older Mainers to make a change and seek out new experiences? We discuss the challenges and rewards of taking a different path in life. This show is part of our series of shows on the changing face of Maine.
