This column from our writer Eleanor McKenzie examines the obstacles, whether related to health or finances and suggests ways to overcome them. It also explores ways to reinvent your life by offering inspiration and practical solutions for anything from starting a new business to finding new ways to use your leisure time. It’s your ‘go to’ place for being Positively 50+.
