This town is also famous for being the home of Coca-Cola, CNN, Gone with the Wind, and two Nobel Peace Prize winners – Martin Luther King, Jr., and President Jimmy Carter.

In my latest article for AARP The Magazine, I explore 10 trendy career opportunities for folks in their 50s and beyond. Click here to read the full story/slideshow.
