What makes your heart sing?

Are you at a crossroad between jobs or careers? Perhaps you've been downsized. Or maybe you simply quit your job because it was sucking the life right out of you. I hear both those stories a lot these days. And I hear women saying they just aren't sure what to do next. One thing they do know for sure: They want a career or job that makes their heart sing!

You might reflect on two questions to help you generate ideas and try to find your passion.

1) What do you want to do when you retire? Women typically don't retire and do nothing. Many of you volunteer. Many of you reinvent yourselves and try out an entirely new career, using gifts and talents you may not have used before. Why wait? Perhaps that retirement career is calling you right now. Think about it.

2) What do you want to do before you die? As you make your list, something just might emerge that leads to career ideas.

If you are seeking a new career that follows your yearnings and passions, take the time you need. Ask the questions. Talk with others. Explore options with a coach. And please contact me should you wish a no-obligation, complimentary strategy session. Remember, most coaching can be done by phone so you need not live in my area.
