Life Advice from a 97-Year- Old Woman (VIDEO)

One of best perks of my job is getting to meet wonderful people in interesting places all over the world. Last week, Debra Rapoport and I  were invited to Orchard Cove Retirement Community to speak as a part of Hebrew Senior Life's College of Retirement lecture series. Before our presentation we had an afternoon to walk around and meet some of Orchard Cove's inspiring residents. It's a privilege to be able to spend time with and learn from so many incredible seniors like 97-year-old Sylvia Carle. Check out the video above to hear how she stays so vital.

She is beautiful Ari. When I saw her standing so straight, I immediately lifted my shoulders, held them back and sat straight and wow it is difficult. I will think of Sylvia when I slouch and take her good advice. Thanks Ari and a hello to Sylvia.

I love that her advice was to be friendly! Friendliness is highly underrated.

What great advice from this lovely woman. I love her words about developing her other assets because she didn't feel her looks would be the focus for her.

Oh what beautiful style and grace. Posture is so key to growing older and yet has such a strong effect on not only how we look but how we feel from the inside out. I love how she said being friendly is important. I need to work on that one and remember to smile.

What a lovely and inspiring lady. Seth, you are indeed a lucky man to be in the company of such amazing women.

Not beautiful? Not everyone is born with a "pretty" face but we can all strive for beautiful posture, grace and style! Woman's got forty years on me and stands up straighter than I do. And I adore her hair!
