Dr. Cynthia: AARP Purpose Prize Winner
To answer this question I will share with you the story of the turning point that brought me to where I am today, coaching individuals like you on exactly how to plan for your encore career.
One of my top strengths is creativity. When I was an assistant high school principal, there was little room for my creativity, my unique gifts, my values, and my personality. I felt stifled and became increasingly disenchanted with my position, hence my decision for early retirement.
When I walked out with my last graduating class, I felt that I too had graduated. It was one of those moments when the clouds part and total clarity arises. I knew that I was meant for something more. I knew I was meant to make a great impact during my next chapter. I did not know exactly what that would look like.
My calling soon became evident. I was moved by an article I found in the AAUW (American Association of University Women) entitled “Why So Few? “women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. A light bulb went off. I decided to join the movement to help close the gender gap in the sciences. I found my purpose and passion and realized that all of my previous training as a teacher, counselor, and administrator had prepared me for this calling.
I started to focus my energies, skills, and experience to develop my non-profit, Saturday Academy, Inc., to join the movement to close the gender gap by focusing on girls to help them ignite a spark for STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) at an early age. Each year we impact the lives of over 500 girls annually with our science conferences, robotic programs, computer science courses, cryptography classes and girls who code programs
In pursuing my own encore career, I noticed that many of my acquaintances shared how lost, stuck, depressed and bored they felt with their lives and wondered how I managed to stay so alive and vibrant. This concern brought me to my second calling: to help retired women figure out how to answer their own calling to pursue an encore career. I became passionate about helping these women discover how they can unlock their personal treasure chests of experience, skills, and wisdom to re-fire and re-ignite their next chapter so that they too can feel more alive, and vibrant and living a life of no regrets.
