Jane Pauley: "Your Life Calling"

Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist Jane Pauley is out with a new book about reinventing yourself after age 50. As average life expectancies increase, more people than ever are starting new careers and companies in their 50s and 60.

This year, every baby boomer will have reached the milestone of age 50. As average life expectancies increase, many boomers are entering midlife with a different perspective on the future than previous generations –- that there is much more to come. Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist Jane Pauley is one such baby boomer. After she stopped anchoring Dateline NBC, she knew she would still be working for decades, but doing what? In a new book, Pauley talks about how she reinvented herself. She interviews other boomers who found happiness in their 50s and 60s by launching a new company or switching careers. Join Diane for a discussion with Pauley about reimagining the rest of your life.
