You meet the nicest peopl on benches! Fellow traveler and food lover Nadine O hasn’t figured it all out yet. Yet she loves to learn as she goes.
She chats with me about soaking in a Japanese hot spring, eating as much pizza as she can in Naples, and navigating life changes after 50 here in “More Please”, Episode 46 of the Something About Food? Podcast.
UPDATE: Nadine mentions the hot spring in Costa Rica along the rainforest and misspoke. The location is called Tabacon Thermal Hot Spring and Spa. She said that Tabacon is such a lovely place that she wanted to get it right for the audience. I think that she has seen enough of the world to be given a little slack in remembering every single name of every single place she's been too!
Nadine O. is a TV news editor by day and an inspirational speaker, vlogger, and podcaster by night. After turning 50, she began to reflect on her life's purpose. Many around her spoke of doing things like traveling, picking up old hobbies or learning new one's after retirement. Sadly, a few didn't make it to that milestone. Then there were those in retirement who struggled to fill the hours in their days. She began to wonder, was that it? No!
So, she created her very first company, The Yandy Project. Y.A.N.D.Y. standing for 'You Are Not Done Yet', and made it her mission to inspire, to support and to share stories of hope, exploration and new beginnings, for and by, people after 50. Her first series, appropriately named, You Are Not Done Yet, followed the daily lives of 5 seniors already in retirement. Since that time, 2 of her guests have passed away. Challenging her even more, to reach all who will listen, to discover, to learn and to see the world while they can. So, she's dusting off the cobwebs and is getting fired up about her next season. Stay tuned!
