Welcome back to our place of inspiration and empowerment, where age is just a number, and every moment is a chance to make our lives better. In this latest chat full of energy and wisdom, let’s dive into a conversation that breaks down ageism and inspires what’s possible later in life. Christina Daves, talks with Lorraine Woodward, a powerful force. Together, they share a story that proves getting older isn’t just about looking back but also about starting something new. Let’s see how Lorraine, at 61, isn’t just beginning a new chapter but is creating a movement for change—one vacation at a time.

Empowerment Knows No Age

In the world of empowerment and age, Lorraine Woodward is changing the story of a woman’s later years. The talk between Christina Daves and Lorraine shows this time of life not as the end of a career but as the start of new possibilities. Lorraine’s joy and determination challenge the usual idea of a professional life, turning sixty years of experience into a place for new ideas.

Lorraine’s story shows the power that comes after turning fifty. Instead of fading away, she shows that this time can be the start of important things. She proves that getting older is a treasure of wisdom, not a countdown to being forgotten. Her new project ‘Becoming rentABLE’ at 60 is not a goodbye but a call for change, shouting that getting older can be a time for innovation. Her message is simple: as we get older, we don’t step back; we step up, changing industries and proving that anyone can make a difference at any age.

Triumph Over Barriers

Lorraine Woodward’s journey is about overcoming challenges, both big and small. Her story of conquering her fear of flying after many years is a big win over problems that often keep people with disabilities from doing what they want. Her trip to Seattle, with the help of a special lift, is a personal win over challenges that too often make life hard for people with disabilities. This part of her story can talk about the tough times she faced and how she got through them, showing how her journey is like the struggles that many people with disabilities face every day.

Making the World Travel-Friendly

Lorraine Woodward’s project, ‘Becoming rentABLE,’ is leading the way in travel that everyone can enjoy. It’s not just a business; it shows Lorraine’s promise to include everyone and her own journey as a guide for change. By carefully checking and certifying places for accessibility, she is breaking down barriers that have made travel hard for people with disabilities. Her work with cities like Denver shows a bigger movement—one that wants to make accessibility a normal part of communities. Lorraine’s commitment means that travel can be easy and fun for everyone, without the worry of being left out or dealing with places that aren’t ready for everyone.

Learning and Growing Together

Lorraine Woodward’s journey with ‘Becoming rentABLE’ is about learning and teaching. Her vision goes beyond just numbers; it’s about making sure everyone knows that accessible travel should be normal, not rare. By working hard for change, her project is like a plan for the future, helping others join the cause. It’s a future where every home and every trip thinks about including everyone, letting everyone enjoy new things without being held back—a future where learning makes the way for everyone.

Personal Stories and Motivation: Shared Triumphs

At the heart of Lorraine Woodward’s project, “Becoming rentABLE,” are personal stories of strength and the hope for including everyone. Lorraine’s journey, filled with tough times in travel, is the start of her project. Her story of getting on an airplane for the first time in a long time isn’t just about her but is a shared story with anyone who has felt left out. It’s a win over the things that kept her from flying, both literally and in her life.

Her determination is like a family she talks about, who waited for 28 years for an accessible vacation—a wait that Lorraine wants to end for others. Her fight is fueled by a strong wish to make a world where her kids and others with needs like hers can move around easily and with respect. Every time she struggled to find a good place to stay, every time she got frustrated with places that weren’t helpful, pushes her to keep going. These aren’t just stories; they are real experiences pushing Lorraine to break down barriers that stop equal access to travel.

The Vision for “Becoming rentABLE”

Lorraine Woodward’s dream for “Becoming rentABLE” is to create a future where everyone can travel easily. Her plans go beyond just her business; she wants to make more places accessible for travelers. This isn’t just about making a business bigger; it’s about creating a community and a culture that cares about accessibility. Lorraine wants partnerships that go beyond business, working with groups and people who care about including everyone. She dreams of a global network that not only offers accessible travel but also fights for the rights of travelers with disabilities. This network will make sure that accessible travel is not something to worry about but something to celebrate, making special memories for everyone.

Reflection and Impact: A Collective Movement

Lorraine Woodward’s thoughts on her work with “Becoming rentABLE” show how much she is changing our culture to be more inclusive. Her story mixes with the bigger push for equal access and opportunity, not just her personal journey but a bigger step forward. Every home listed, every barrier broken, and every story told shows the big change she is part of. It’s a movement that goes beyond age, inspiring people of all ages to see getting older as a time to do more.

Lorraine’s work calls for a world where being inclusive is just what we do, changing how we see ability and accessibility.
