Starting Where You Are

Starting Where You Are… So, I’ve been thinking about starting where you are. It sounds terribly silly, doesn’t it? I mean, let’s be real! Where else can you possibly start? The thing is that most of us actually do try to start somewhere else instead. We try to start “ahead of ourselves” which inevitably leads to frustration. First we need to know where we are now, and we need to know WHO we are now. There is something magical about this whole equation once we get it going. Seeing clearly the difference between where we are now and who we […]

New Video Reveals Secrets Of Making Money Well Into Retirement

New Video Reveals Secrets Of Making Money Well Into Retirement If you are retired, or looking at retirement in the near future, you are probably wondering how you will ever be able to afford to retire. Generations before ours anticipated working at one company their whole career and being “taken care of” by that¬†company via a company owned retirement plan. Now baby boomers are facing a huge financial crisis as the privatization of retirement plans has not quite worked out as anticipated or promised.¬†We need new solutions that go far beyond what 401k and 403b or IRA plans are actually […]

Encore Career Entrepreneur! How Ever Did I Get Here?

So, How Ever Did I Get Here? Now, there’s a question! You see all I ever wanted was to be was a nurse (since age 4 when I had my appendix taken out and played “Nursing School” down the hall from my room in Pediatrics) and a mother (of 5, according to my Mom). I’m a very lucky girl, you see, because both of those dreams came true. However, I didn’t exactly take the “fast track” to fulfillment of my dreams. It was more like a long, winding detour that got me there in the end. Oh well, you know […]

Turning Tragedy Into Triumph With An Encore Career As An Entrepreneur continued…

I sort of left you all with a cliffhanger yesterday and a little “cheat tactic” for the “traumatized by suspense” among us. So back to the story line. Now, where was I? Now I feel blessed to have stumbled upon the perfect encore career vehicle for someone like me! Oh, there was a learning curve involved, but I like a challenge. On my computer, I can make everything bigger and easier to see. I can work and rest at intervals, as I feel able, and at the times that are best for me, whether in the middle of the day […]

Turning Tragedy Into Triumph With An Encore Career

It is coming up to the one year anniversary of the day that changed my life forever, so today I want to talk to you a little bit about turning tragedy into triumph with an encore career. Instead of mourning an ending, you can celebrate a beginning! I am doing just that, and eagerly look forward to helping others do the same. In just about three weeks from now it will be a year since the day that took away my profession of thirty years, suddenly without warning, and with a startling finality. Of course that finality is all in […]

Answer Your “WHY”

Sending a shout out to all of my people and some real encouragement to answer your big “WHY”. If you are an entrepreneur there are going to be times when you “just don’t feel like” doing something that needs to be done! I sincerely doubt that any of us completely escape this type of scenario. Let’s face it. There are just some tasks that don’t, in and of themselves, motivate us very much at all. It’s for times like these that you need to be able to refer to your “WHY.” You need to be able to quickly access the […]

Never, Ever, Give Up

Hello again, Over the end of last week and over the weekend, I survived five days of a barely functional, to completely non functional, computer and learned more about computer function, and how to muddle through somewhat with only my iPhone for internet access, than I ever hoped to know. For normal folks with great vision and especially for the youngsters among us, this would not be such a noteworthy feat. Being visually challenged though, it was quite a praiseworthy accomplishment. You see, on my computer I can enlarge things however much I might need to do so in order […]

Hello on WordPress, thanks to Mr. John Chow

Hello World on WordPress and a great big thank you to Mr. John Chow for getting me set up to start blogging. This must be what it is like to be sailing on a great big sea with a little tiny boat, all made of even tinier pieces that kind friends and neighbors have helped you put together into what you are pretty sure a boat is supposed to be. Have had little bits and pieces that have been pulled together for the past few months and love writing, but couldn’t quite get all of those bits and pieces together […]
