About Twifties
Twifties is a movement of the people in their late 40s and up. People over 50 control 50% of consumer spending in the US, yet few “fun” products are marketed to this group. Lauren Traub Teton combined the words “fifty” and “twenty” to create “Twifty” as a handle for the lively enthusiastic people who are the target of the bullseye of older consumers, and envisions Twifties people meeting for more fun events like this one, Twifties dance parties all across the country and the world. And select Twifties approved products. Meet Twifties and see how they have fun on www.Twifties.TV.

Who is the most important person in your life?

Who is the most important person in your life?

by Lauren Traub Teton

When Beyonce Knowles was asked this question on 60 Minutes last night, her answer surprised me. She replied "I guess I am." Brava Beyonce for your focus and candor! And that policy seems to really be working for her. Last year she earned around $80 million and employed hundreds of people. She brought joy and light and beauty and fun to millions of her fans on tour and through recordings. She is living the life she always wanted and envisioned from the time she was a child.

Yet many of us think that society subtly discourages allowing ourselves to be the focus of our lives. Words like "selfish" and "self-centered" may be directed to people who focus on their lives first. "Selfless" shows up as a synonym for "unselfish" in the dictionary, but scratch below the surface and you will find that people who can help others must be sound and centered first."Selfless" is a misnomer and a wrong concept. If you are wanting and in need you don't have much to give others.

We should all follow Beyonce's beautiful lead and be the most important persons in our life.Not being the most important person in your life has down sides. Of course parents of small children and guardians of people who need help would do well to fill up their glass and then share. The airlines tell you to put on your own oxygen mask first. You can't help others if you are not thriving. Not being the center of your life is like driving down the highway at 65 mph while eating, talking, and shaving! It is safer and more beneficial to all if you focus on the task of driving, or the task of running your life.

If people strive to thrive in their own lives first, they will have plenty of goodness and abundance to share with others. Beyonce is a wonderful role model.
