Next Avenue More than the Sum of Its Partners Some of the most famous companies in America were started by business partners who worked well together. Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard of Hewlett-Packard. Bill Gates and Paul Allen at Microsoft. Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield with Ben & Jerry's. "For a lot of businesses, you need a partnership." Each of these advantages seemed to be in play while talking with Ellen Kocher and Dominique Ben Dhaou, the co-founders of Wake Up, Shake Up, Thrive, a holistic and comprehensive well-being program for the 50-plus demographic. Brainz Magazine Why Every Coach Should Up-Skill For The Aging Population The aging population is increasing, the World Health Organization estimates that by 2050, one in six people will be over the age of 65, and already today 35% of our population is over 50. With a projected lifespan of over 80 years, that sums up to over 30 years of exciting, active life to prepare for! This demographic shift highlights the need for coaches to adapt their practices to cater to the unique needs and preferences of older adults.
