After decades of working, Chip Conley started all over again. Hired as an advisor at Airbnb, he eventually became something of an intern to the young CEO. He's written a new book, Wisdom at Work: The Making of a Modern Elder, which reframes how to approach work for older workers, both as a keeper of wisdom and as a digital immigrant.
