Radio interview with Men’s Wisdom Works founder on Oct. 4

From a press release:

Men’s Wisdom Works founder Chuck Fink will be interviewed live on WRHI’s Radio 4 the Ages program Saturday, Oct. 4 at 10:20 a.m. The program will be available online at ten groups operating out of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UNC Asheville and one at Givens Estates, Men’s Wisdom Works was the focus for a recent article appearing in The Raleigh News and Observer describing how North Carolina attracts retirees.  The Kiplinger Retirement Report featured a similar article about Men’s Wisdom Works and OLLI UNC Asheville in its September issue.

Five years ago Fink experienced difficulty in adapting to his new state of being – retirement.  Believing he was not alone, he organized a group for men transitioning to retirement and aging at OLLI UNC Asheville.  Fink heard from so many he shared his idea with that “it’s a good idea, but it will never work.  Men don’t sit around a talk about personal issues.” Today these men’s groups have 130 members within 11 groups. More than just a social network for men, Men’s Wisdom Works groups meet twice monthly for two hours to discuss issues of personal importance to men transitioning to retirement and aging.
