Learn how to age shamelessly with our resident Ageism Prosecutor, Mariann Aalda. Mariann was famously known for her role as DiDi Bannister on the ABC soap opera, The Edge of Night. After a successful career in front of the camera, she decided to practice hypnotherapy, where she realized her clients don’t need hypnosis. Rather, they have to be “de-hypnotized.” She will also teach us a hack to have a good laugh, which you should not miss.
