What we're about

THE BOLD PROS LINKUP -Toronto Central is a Live Local Arm of , an On-Line Global health, wealth and wisdom-oriented social networking service for Seasoned Pros, and a Professional Services and Co-venture Opportunity Directory and Advice Source for professionals and the public that is currently being created.

These LINKUPS are in-person events that complement the online platform by bringing together Seasoned Professionals over the age of 50, who want to create significant new relationships.

At the events you'll meet MENSCHES who are enthusiastic about being healthy, wealthy and wise for the rest of their days, and who possess a wide range of unique experiences, ideas, and skills. Kernels of Practical Wisdom, Strategies and Inspiration are exchanged each time we meet.

We get together regularly to work on important projects, initiatives and causes. We learn about what each other does and wants to do, who we are as individuals and community members, and support and help each other reach life, wealth, health and purposeful living goals.

Unlike some networking events which are poorly attended, lack structure and are populated by people with widely varying backgrounds, ages, and intentions‚ our LINKUPS are focused to help Seasoned Professionals keep going and growing in their areas of interest, find co-creators, and be prosperous and vital. We bring vast life and work experience to what we do.

We are Professionals who see that the world has changed and that traditional retirement... going from full time work to full time leisure... is no longer possible, or desired, for a growing number of people. We believe that continuing to explore, contribute, and lead meaningful, healthy lives for the rest of our days makes sense.

If you are working and planning to continue to work, and want to form incredible new relationships, want clients/patients/customers, and/or are interested in creating and co-creating new ventures, and/or working on community/volunteer projects…

Or, if you are a retired professional and want to form incredible new relationships, want to be 'semi-retired', are interested in creating or co-creating new ventures, mentoring, and/or working on community/volunteer projects…

and you want to lead a healthy and meaningful life..

Then THE BOLD PROS is for you.

Our website, provides support and promotional services, including a significant Professional Services and Co-venture Opportunity Directory with detailed descriptions of members services and products for consumers, and details of projects, business ventures, and causes for members who are seeking, or want to be, co-creators, mentors, or volunteers.

As of today our core membership is 146 PROS. We plan to expand to other North American cities in 2018.

If this description of who we are, what we do, how we do it, and what is important to us, resonates with your needs and wants, you can find out more and join our Real World LINKUP Group.
