What's an "encore career"?

Have you ever heard the term "encore career"? An entire website is devoted to the idea of combining purpose, passion and a paycheck in the second half of life. What you will find on the Encore Career website is information for those who want to "leave the world a better place than you found it."

This is a fascinating idea. As the site says, "If the old golden years dream was the freedom from work, the dream of this new wave is the freedom to work—in new ways, on new terms, to new and even more important ends. The goal: doing what you love, helping others and getting paid for it."

That's actually what I talk a lot about on my website, too. It's really about building a career that expresses your passion, your gifts, your dreams. When you are doing what you really love and what you were created to do, it doesn't even feel like work. Such work makes you feel like jumping out of bed in the morning. It keeps you going all day long. How powerful and energizing is that?!

So whether you're middle age, younger or older, think about whether it's possible for you to pursue your passion. If you want to explore this, please contact me and we'll talk about it. I invite you to a no-obligation, complimentary strategy session to see whether you could follow your dreams. You'll be energized just thinking about it!
