George H. Schofield, Ph.D.

Biography

Dr. George Schofield is an Expert and Futurist on Navigating Our New Normal. The Old Normal and the tools we've learned to use with it are gone and not coming back. As a Developmental Psychologist, he has a special interest in the life period beginning around age 50, including retirement. Our choices of relationships, work, and pursuits redefine us and form the foundation for the quality of the remainder of our lives. Just as a great 6-year-old doesn't start at 5, a great 80-year-old doesn't begin at 79. Chronological age is only one factor and not necessarily the dominant one. We all know old 65-year-olds and young 80-year-olds. What makes the difference? As an author and journalist, his groundbreaking book, After 50 It's Up To Us; Developing The Skills And Agility We'll Need, eloquently explains why and how we all must face, head on, the new realities that await us. George's articles have appeared in The Huffington Post, Forbes.com, PBS's nextavenue.com, Wall Street Journal Market Watch, Credit.com, and MSN. He has been quoted in major publications including the New York Times, BBC, AARP, The Boston Globe, and US News and World Report. He appears weekly on Focus 50+, a TV series on SNN Sarasota News Network. Dr. Schofield is among an elite group of professionals recommended in the #1 career book in the world, What Color Is Your Parachute? by Richard Bolles.
