Silver, disobedient and rockin’
Dian Griesel: Writer, businesswoman & model
There are some people who just ooze optimism. Approaching life with a positive and inquisitive attitude is half the battle, when it comes to aging with vigor and purpose. It also helps to be a little defiant and rebellious – if not, downright disobedient. Writer, businesswoman and model, Dian Griesel, has embraced the power of living agelessly through her blog, Silver Disobedience. The author of The Silver Disobedience Playbook: 365 Inspirations for Living and Loving Agelessly, she delivers a daily dose of wisdom and pithy observations about life and aging. In this LLAMA podcast interview with Peter Bowes, Dian shares the inspiration behind her gregarious attitude towards aging. She also invites us to the party of a lifetime.
