The U.S. has nearly 112 million people 50+, one-third of the total population, many of whom are sitting on the sidelines but wanting to be actively engaged. They own or control more than 70% of the country's total accumulated private wealth and account for more than 60% of the total annual consumer spending.

Enrich Life Over 50 (ELO50) provides the opportunity to be actively engaged in many ways that add value through their Experience, Expertise, Seasoned Judgment and Proven performance (DoubleESP™).
