Starting over at any age can be scary.

But when you reach the big 5-0, the thought of starting over in any area of your life is even more daunting.

Deciding what to do after kids leave home or a change in marital status is confusing and scary. How do you compete in the modern job market if you’ve been out of the workforce for a while? 

Instead of thinking of this big change in your life as a disruption, consider it an opportunity to recreate your life.

Use this time to explore new careers, relationships, and interests.

With age comes wisdom and life experience, giving you the chance to create an exciting new life.

Life Passion Journal, find your passion

“I’m making a ton of money. I have a job other people would kill for. I can buy anything I want. But I’m miserable.”

Those were the words of one of my coaching clients a few years ago who was searching for his life passion.

From all appearances, he was in an enviable situation. He had a great job, making a lot of money. He had all of the trappings of a fabulous lifestyle.

But it just wasn’t fulfilling. He wasn’t passionate about his work, and he was discovering that money and things weren’t enough to sustain him.

Fortunately, he could afford to hire a coach to help him find his passion, and he could comfortably make a transition to his passion once we worked together to find it.
