In today’s episode of The Mentors Radio, host Tom Loarie talks with Michael Clinton, former President of Hearst Magazines and former publisher of GQ and Condé Nast. In the conversation, Michael serves as a guide for those seeking a new life and discusses how COVID, the mass number of work resignations and retirement are motivating many to rethink what a life well-lived looks like for them. Many are rethinking the path they are on and are seeking change. Michael Clinton argues that there is no better time than now, before it’s too late, to ROAR—reimagine your life, own who you are, act on what’s next and reassess your relationships.

James R. Hagerty, a 30-year veteran reporter, editor and bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal and the International Herald Tribune in Hong Kong, London, Brussels, Paris, Atlanta and New York, is also the author of “The Fateful History of Fannie Mae,” and he is no stranger to award-winning writing. He’s written about everything from real estate, economics, bond markets, furniture, Belgian beer, English plumbing and even Hong Kong criminals, but for Hagerty, none of it compares to his Obituary writing. 

In this episode, Hagerty talks with The Mentors Radio host Tom Loarie about invaluable lessons he’s learned from those on whose shoulders we stand, how reading Obits can help us live our own best lives, and why he loves what he does today.  Find Show Notes here.
