Encore Performance At 46

Susan wants to move to Texas. She's a single mom who wants to start her life over again. Dave can't see why Susan shouldn't do it.

QUESTION: Susan in New York City wants to move to Texas. She’s a single mom who wants to start her life over again. She’s making $10/hour now but can live with someone in Texas and return to school for nursing. Dave can’t see why Susan shouldn’t do it.

ANSWER: Why would you not do this? You’re only 46. That’s the way you need to think about this. You’re going to work another 25 or 30 years. You’ve got what we call an encore going on here. You get to come out on stage and have an encore. Yeah, move. It’s what I would do. You can buy a plane ticket back to New York if you want to visit someone, and so can Grandma. She can buy one to San Antonio. They’ve got direct flights.
