What is Expressive Age?

a time in life and the way you express it

Will 2019 be the year of Expressive YOU?

It's the second of 50 more weeks in 2019.  Will this be the year of Expressive YOU? I coined the term "Expressive Age" to re-brand existing stereotypes of aging.  It represents the idea that there is a time in life when circumstances allow for greater self-expression.   You have more freedom [...]
