I especially liked this story because it shows that you can't use the excuse of being "too old" to go after your dreams!
Here is a brief synopsis of the story:
Former CNN anchor does the 'Possible' *
In a competitive and youth-obsessed business, most everyone gets The Call sometime. For ex-CNN daytime anchor Daryn Kagan, it came in January 2006. She was brought into an office and told that CNN would not renew her contract when it expired at the end of the year. Kagan was lucky in one sense -- she wasn't escorted out that day by security -- but by the first of September, she was gone. Left with a personal crisis sadly familiar to many, Kagan reinvented herself with a Web site devoted to telling inspirational stories. ...
She has a website and a blog (unfortunately comments can not be added) and she has written a book! She has accomplished a LOT!
She didn't let getting fired hold her down for long!
Here is a link to her website:
