When I hear the word “trendsetter” I think of a mid-twenty year old fashionista or an artsy musician paving the way by inventing and finding the latest fad, living the unobtainable lifestyle that no one wants to admit but everyone secretly wishes was theirs.

By Barbara Risto on May 10, 2011

Today's seniors are not stereotypical. They don't want to be put in boxes or herded in packs. They are very much individuals, thank you very much!
