6 Reasons to Attend the Gay Life After 40 Conference


1. Breaking Out of Your Comfort Zone

Live events force you to break out of your comfort zone.

It’s easy to read a blog post or listen to a podcast but actually discussing with like minded men on how it is to be a gay man after 40 can be more impact at a live event. It gets all of us out of the rut of the same routine. By  breaking out of our comfort zones, it  is just the type of action we need to take to break out of old ways of thinking that have got us in a rut .


2. Greater Focus

We are so distracted with everyday business that we really don’t spend time in introspection about ourselves. You will have time and less distraction . Don’t you deserve 2 days for yourself?

3. The Energy of Like-Minded Individuals after 40

There’s nothing like being in a room of like-minded people around your own age. Other people who are willing to take time away from their own lives to learn something new and help contribute to each other. . Other people who want to “better” themselves and I cant find a better place to do that then at a GLA40 Conference..
When you sit in a meeting room with others, you discover  that you’re not alone in wanting to improve your skills and bring something back to your own community and friends. You will come out differently after leaving the conference than coming in.

4. The Serendipity of the Random Workshops

The workshops we have , will be guided by life coaches, current & retired professionals that our geared toward the gay man who is over 40 .
