Returning with a Roar

As many of you know (sounds like I'm pretending to have LOTS of readers!), I've been in the role of a "Returning" woman. When Cupcake graduated 2 years ago, I thought "Okay, now what do I want to be when I grow up?" I've owned a number of businesses over the years (I call myself a serial entrepreneur), but I embraced a term called career convergence and decided that it's time that my passion, gifts, talents, experience and assignment all converge for my glorious fifties.

The result is I've been building my client base with LifePoint as a Merchant of Hope & Executive Business Trainer. I'm loving it. One thing I've done this year is teamed up with Becky Harmon of Success Not Sabotage Coaching. We're doing team-building in Tele-Classes, Workshops, Retreats and such. Right now, we're working with a team of 10 Christian Businesswomen & Ministry Leaders who've dubbed themselves the Grace Girls. This has been an amazing experience and of course I've learned more from them than they could have possibly learned from me. I just want to let you know Becky and I are organizing our last Tele-team (location doesn't matter) of 2010 on October 13 on Creating a Team that Roars: Magnetizing and Cultivating a Team that Gets Results. If you want to know more, details are HERE .

One of the Grace Girls, Jane Falter, is an Encore Coach that I'm joining with next week to present a Free Tele-Seminar called Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life.
A survey I participated in as a blogger about a year ago revealed that 80% of women over 40 live with a sense of disappointment. (And you thought you were alone.) Consider joining us next Weds. Oct 6th. Details Here

So now you know where I've been and what I've been doing! I've got more to tell you and am excited about a trip to California later this week. Catch you soon!

Hey, I'm a regular reader! I like the idea of career convergence. For me it's the idea that God uses all my life experience to prepare me for his mission for me: Nothing is Wasted.

Sounds like you have been busy, and feeling fulfilled. Yeah! Have fun in California!

Such a worthy ministry! I can't believe how many of my friends - the seniors of 60 - 70 years of age - live with some sense of regret.

All I know is that the best is ALWAYS yet to come for the believer, and I can't believe how unimaginably fabulous is this thing called life.

Wishing/praying you much, much success!

I agree that the fifties is a time for us to evaluate and purposefully make all of our talents and energies and gifts converge. I like it!
What I don't like is that I always assume I'm in my fifties because my husband is! I am not. Yet. About three more years. So I have time to plot and plan!
