Center for Productive Longevity Announces Speakers for Baby Boomers Entrepreneurship Meeting

Nearly Full Meeting Features Academic and Business Leaders and Interactive Breakout Sessions

Boulder, CO, September 05, 2012 - The Center for Productive Longevity (CPL), which serves as the bridge between people 55 and older and opportunities that enable them to continue in productive activities, has just increased its maximum number of participants from 125 to 150 because the topic has such fundamental importance, with unemployment high and economic growth low for the foreseeable future.

“New-business creation is the backbone of the U.S. economy, as well as the engine for increased employment and economic growth,” said William Zinke, President of CPL.

The meeting at Babson College on September 14, titled “Spotlight on Entrepreneurship Opportunities for Baby Boomers,” has an outstanding line-up of speakers:

* Leonard Schlesinger, the 12th President of Babson College since July 1, 2008; previously in executive positions with Limited Brands from 1999-2007, most recently as Vice Chairman & CEO; Executive Vice President & COO at An Bon Pain from 1985-1988; previously at Harvard Business School for 20 years, where he served as the George Fisher Baker, Jr. Professor of Business Administration.

* Ralph Sorenson, President Emeritus of Babson College (1974 to 1981) and founder of its Center for Entrepreneurship in 1978; Professor Emeritus and former Dean, University of Colorado Business School (1992-present); former Chairman & CEO, Barry Wright Company (1981-1989); Director of Whole Foods Market, Inc. since 1994.

* Douglas Rauch, a founder of Trader Joe’s and with the company for 31 years, primarily as President & CEO of a nationally-acclaimed retail success story; senior fellow at Harvard in the school’s Advanced Leadership Initiative; executive partner at AptaCapital; chair of the WBUR Board of Overseers and works with a number of entrepreneurial startups.

* David Egan, business founder and turnaround strategist. He co-founded THINQ Learning Solutions, an e-learning management software company that achieved a peak market valuation of $250 million and was later successfully sold. He then co-founded LanguageCorps, a specialty seminar company that trains, certifies, places and supports English teachers in Asian and Central American schools. He has also spent 20 years starting and turning around publications in the communications and computer markets for major companies like McGraw-Hill and Ziff Davis Publishing.

* Irene Costello, co-founder of Effie’s Homemade, which has created and marketed since 2007 a line of all-natural rustic baked goods. Effie’s Homemade products are made in the USA and sold in specialty stores nationwide.

There will be two breakout sessions focused on how to become an entrepreneur, with topics ranging from the risks and rewards to developing strategies for recognizing potential business opportunities to developing a business plan.

With 30 years added to longevity during the 20th century and the average age of retirement at 62, new-business creation is an important path to consider for older people who either want or need to continue working. It provides an opportunity for people with experience, expertise, seasoned judgment, proven performance and some accumulated wisdom to be their own boss and “march to their own drummer.”

Additional meetings will be held at Northwestern University/Kellogg School of Management in Chicago on October 11, and the University of Denver-University College on November 15. One goal of these four meetings in different parts of the country is to contribute to the growing wave of entrepreneurship throughout the U.S. For more information on CPL and the senior entrepreneurship meetings, visit or Facebook at

Rabbit Hole Hay Knows the Importance of Location in Growing Farm Fresh Hay for Rabbits

Rabbit Hole Hay is a new online company located in the mountain valleys of Northern California and Southern Oregon that specializes in selling alfalfa hay and timothy hay for rabbits and other small animals. The company is situated in an ideal location for growing nutritious, quality hay that is delivered straight to the customer's front door.

Chico, CA, September 05, 2012 (Straight Line PR) -- Rabbit Hole Hay is an online company that sells farm fresh alfalfa hay and timothy hay for rabbits and other small animals. Rabbit Hole Hay is able to offer a nutritious, quality product because the company is located near an ideal environment for growing hay.

"We like to say the hay we sell is nursed to perfection by the sweet kiss of the Pacific Ocean and the tender care of our farmers," said Chief Executive Officer Michael K. Redman. "We are able to provide our customers some of the best hay around because it's grown in our own backyard."

The timothy hay and alfalfa hay for rabbits is grown in a valley location that is bounded by the Pacific Ocean on one side, and lush forests and mountain ranges on the other. ( ) This area provides prime conditions for hay crops, because it offers cool night temperatures, limited rainfall, and low humidity. During the day, the alfalfa hay and timothy hay take in energy from the sun and fertile soil, which is turned into growth at night. This causes the hay to become more nutrient-rich per inch of growth than in warmer climates.

It's important that the location where the alfalfa hay and timothy hay is grown is a drier environment with low humidity and minimal rain to prevent the hay from molding. It also allows the hay to keep its natural green color.

"We value that we live in a place where the hay for rabbits we sell is grown in our own backyard," Redman said. "It allows us the opportunity to be sure the alfalfa hay and timothy hay we're selling is grown in an ideal environment, stored for freshness, packed with care, and ready to be sent to our customers and enjoyed by their small pet."
