498 Gail Zelitzky and Catherine Marienau: Over 70, Going Strong

Why Women Find Self-Acceptance and Renewed Energy to Learn and Innovate in their Golden Years

One of the biggest predictors of success for a startup founder is a natural curiosity and openness and willingness to constantly learn.

And women in their 70s, 80s and 90s are showing us that anything is possible – including growing and scaling new businesses – much later in life.

Today we shine a spotlight on female founders above the age of 70 taking on new challenges in businesses and creating a powerful – sometimes world-changing – impact.

What they all have in common is a passion for learning, a willingness to reinvent, and a powerful rejection of all the “should’s” that guided them in younger years.

Everyone is on a different timeline in life, and it just so happens that women tend to have “awakenings” later in life – healing themselves in significant ways and then offering that talent to others.

Gail Zelitzky and Catherine Marienau are the co-hosts of a podcast called Women Over 70 – Aging Reimagined. They interview women in their 70s, 80s and 90s who are building impactful businesses, writing groundbreaking books, and leading social movements.

A lifelong entrepreneur, Gail built two multi-million-dollar businesses before creating GEARSHIFT, a fast track coaching program. Founder of the Wonder Women Mastermind, Gail received the David O. Justice Award for entrepreneurial success from DePaul University, and serves as a Board member for the Small Business Advocacy Council and a mentor for Chicago Innovation’s Ageless Innovators and for the Women Empowerment Council.

Catherine Marienau, Ph.D., is an educational entrepreneur who has founded and directed innovative undergraduate and graduate programs and created cross-sector forums for community engagement. She teaches, writes and consults in the areas of women and aging, women and integrative health, and neuroscience and adult learning.

Gail Zelitzky and Catherine Marienau

Gail Zelitzky built two multi-million-dollar businesses before creating GEARSHIFT, a fast track coaching program. Also founder of the Wonder Women Mastermind, Gail recently joined forces with Catherine Marienau to launch the Women Over 70 – Aging Reimagined podcast.

Catherine is an educational entrepreneur who has founded and directed innovative undergraduate and graduate programs and created cross-sector forums for community engagement. She teaches, writes and consults in the areas of women and aging, women and integrative health, and neuroscience and adult learning.

As co-hosts of the weekly podcast, Women Over 70-Aging Reimagined, Gail Zelitzky and Catherine Marienau shatter the myth that women are invisible as they age. Interviewing women in their 70s, 80s and 90s, they’ve come to see that women can and do accomplish major things in business – many launching profitable businesses, writing significant books, and more.
