Edith Wagner

Edith Wagner has worn many hats: she’s been a social worker, a juvenile officer, and worked in PR before starting her own business, Reunions, a trade publication for reunion planners with a circulation of about 15,000. Based out of her home in Milwaukee with one (near) full-time employee and several part-time contractors, Wagner says the entrepreneurial bug struck later in life than most. “I left [PR] when I was 40 feeling that was when life was beginning,” she says. “I am not one of those who burned out, I just needed to do more creative work.” Now 73, Wagner says she has no desire to retire.
