We’ve previously covered the changing perceptions on who and what is considered glamorous. Roles have been altered and as boomers grow older, their tastes continue to be catered to.

Since 1 in 5 people 55-64 have said they are postponing retirement and 1 in 4 people 45-54 said the same, it looks like a bunch of people are going to be looking for second careers.
