Senior Adventures from Dog Sledding to Pole Dancing to Bee Keeping

"Happiness is one step outside of your comfort zone."   Michele Rapp

Michele Rapp, founder and Chief Explorer Officier of Columbus Explorer Club, shared her empowerment philosophy and an incredible array of adventure opportunities for seniors (55 +) as a guest on Senior Agenda on 1/9/2014. Listen to the complete interview by clicking on Listen to Senior Agenda at the top of the blog.  

According to Michele, happiness is just one step outside of your comfort zone which can start with a simple phone call to her adventure concierge club to discuss your next out-of-the-box experience.  "It's a new year.  Let's stop being afraid.  Take a step outside your comfort zone and start checking off some of those bucket list items," said Michele.
