Receive practical advice and mindset strategies that will help you create an amazing next chapter!
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.
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. 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.
