Burt Fendelman is a gregarious and energetic 86 year old living in NYC.
He began his career as a tax attorney and got bored with it so changed to a different type of law practice. This enabled him to work in the area of the arts which is and remains a personal passion.
He chats with us on the show about how important it is to maintain personal connections and create new ones as we grow older. His favorite thing to do when growing up was getting to meet new people and not being afraid of new people.
Lose your fear of aging by not thinking about it! Realize that your body is a machine and needs to be serviced. Also, the most important thing is to keep your mind busy.
Volunteer and give back. Being alone is apparently equivalent to smoking 10 cigarettes a day.
