About Us

 

Age Without Borders creates digital products in the aging industry from courses to Master Classes. We facilitate various types of online video sessions on our preferred online meeting platform, Zoom.

Our video sessions serve as an enriching opportunity to engage with others in the aging industry, both peers and leading experts. We are always experimenting with new styles and agendas, meaning you can expect a fresh experience each time.

We also help you create your own aging-focused digital products. Using our method, you can build an online business with products you don’t have to manufacture, package, or ship!
