Finding joy and repurposing yourself in midlife and beyond, with Chip Conley

Join us for Episode 11 of The Aging Project Podcast to meet Chip Conley, a man who’s going to get you thinking about what you want for your life, and how you’re going to make it happen. At just 26, Chip started a business that became the second largest boutique hotel brand in America. At 47, he died nine times. Yes – you read that correctly! It was the wake-up call he needed to make some big changes in his life, and now, after helping build Airbnb into the biggest hospitality brand in the world, he’s shifted his focus to helping people in midlife and beyond find their purpose, and step confidently into the next stage with joy and meaning. Chip’s latest project, Modern Elder Academy, is on a mission to change the way we approach aging, and we’re so excited to have him on the podcast to share his wisdom with us!
