Hi. My name is Lou Blaser.

I'm the editor/curator of Briefing Notes and the host of the Second Breaks podcast. I figured out a way to channel my curiousity, love of research, and reading obsession into something that's helpful to other people. Hah!

Some things you should know: I believe that growing and thriving in our work extends beyond "a certain age". I am pro-unretirement. And my personal mission is to help create the kind of world where this isn't only possible, but is easy for folks like us!
