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 or in the middle of the night. Often it is the middle of the night after my better half retires and the house is quiet. And I can do it all without leaving home! Instead of commuting eastward across northern New Jersey in rush hour traffic, I can simply cross the hallway to my office or sit in the morning sun in the living room or the greenhouse with my computer.

Now I can sleep in mornings and awaken to the sound of George's voice, “Princess, your coffee is here,” half jokingly said, instead of a blaring alarm before dawn. Now, after I “tuck him in” at night, I can devote a couple of hours to whichever aspect of my business is priority and interests me most. This is heaven!

Oh, and then there are the Masterminds in tropical paradise resorts, days of networking with and learning from multimillionaire successes, and evenings of socializing just to top it all off (and talking business too because we're all so much enjoying ourselves and everyone is so happy to share) with delightful food and drinks, local entertainment, lots of conversation, and even dancing.

I've just recently come home from a Mastermind in Puerto Vallarta. What a great experience! I learned so much there and took steps that will elevate my business to another level all together. On our activity afternoon, I went to “swim with the dolphins” and what a magical experience that was for me. We didn't exactly swim with them, but were in the water with them, learned some of their basic commands that the trainers use with them, gave them a belly rub, were kissed by them and kissed them back, and even danced with them.  You can take a look


at my Facebook “personal” cover photo which is a picture of me hugging “our dolphin” during our Dolphin Encounter at Nuevo Vallarta. They are doing great rehab work there, something I can relate to from my nursing background.

Well, back to business. Speaking of business, you can link to my Facebook “fan page” or business page


for some doses of inspiration and encouragement as well as educational links, and some just plain fun too.

So, more importantly, let's talk about you! Maybe you are already retired and beginning to face the financial worries of increasing costs of living on a “fixed income.” Perhaps you are in your fifties and worrying that you'll never have enough money to retire. Or maybe you were downsized out of a corporate job. Maybe you have faced a health crisis that has taken your regular job from you or have been injured in an accident and are facing an uphill battle to be healthy again, let alone work away from home. Do not despair!

I have good news for you, no matter what has brought you to this moment! You can have lifestyle freedom and a solid supplemental income in retirement. You too can own your own business and be your own boss. You can work from home instead of leaving those you love behind for many hours a week. Or you can take your family with you and work wherever there is an internet connection or WiFi available.

And I would be honored to help you! Not only that but there will be many others ready and able to help as well. One of my favorite things to do now is to coach others as they explore their own interests and talents and to start up and establish encore careers that give them lifestyle freedom as well as solid financial foundations.

Tickled your fancy? Got you thinking, or better yet dreaming? Want to know more?


Until next time,
