The Inc. Tank logo and "Where thought leaders discuss radically changing markets"“The historical idea was you had three stages. Learn till you’re 25, earn ‘til you’re 65, retire ‘til you die. That model, if you talk to a millennial about that model, they look at you like, “What are you talking about?

Chip Conley, founder and CEO of the Modern Elder Academy, talks with hosts Christina Elson and David Yang about the new world of long-life learning, the concept of the radical sabbatical, and the wisdom that midlife can offer.
