We have also been working to bring you more engagement, but it’s all under wraps right now. You’ll just have to wait to find out.

This edition features stories of six WisGen who share their story of a major challenge they faced, updates on improvements to our jobs platform and more! Read on to find out.

“Steering and naturing my fledgling consulting practice, Gestalt Alt Consulting — living the solo entrepreneur life, absorbing new knowledge, and thriving in this exciting chapter.

WisdomCircle honours those challenging cultural expectations of elders slowing down and retreating into retirement by shining light on their journey through an inspiring series called “Wisdom Stories”. 

Renu Kapoor in her interview with Saonli Sen Choudhury says, "My life mantra is never say die. I have never considered the word “No” as a failure...My advice to the wisdom generation is to find their purpose and commit to it. This is a great phase when one can tend to unfulfilled aspirations because now we do it for ourselves. I dance not because I am the best but because I love dancing and I hope to dance till I drop dead."
