In two March episodes, guest host Tom Hodson talked with Bev Jones about how to build a portfolio career, as an alternative to traditional retirement. Since then, Tom has in fact retired from his leadership role at Ohio University and WOUB. While he has many interests, he’s finding the transition to be more challenging than he expected. Hear a bit of coaching in this episode, as long-time friends Bev and Tom discuss his feelings of emptiness. They talk about why a mourning period is normal, and explore smart ways for him to move forward and create a healthy, long life.
