I was 62 and a hospital executive with one young daughter when the facility was closed and all of the employee laid off. I was two years shy of a credible retirement. No one was hiring due to a hangover from the recession. I had another child on the way and my relationship went off the rails.
In other words, I hit the wall.
And I was passionate to take steps forward to take care of my family, to do meaningful and rewarding work, fully enjoy my life and help others step into passionately step into their best lives.
I offered business coaching for small business owners. As a former business executive with an MBA, I have experience but I found I wasn’t passionate about doing. I found myself saying “Been there, done that and not again”.
I was once again on the hamster wheel, not doing what I loved. My dreams of aaaaahhhh turned awful. My colorful vision of working with enjoyable clients turned into monotonous, black & white drudgery.
Then one day, I was talking with a good friend the other day about men and their often horrible treatment of women through the ages. Then she said she hadn't known this was one of my passions so I explained.
Back in the 70's and 80's, I was on the street marching in Denver for women's rights and reproductive freedom. I became the only man working in a women's health center and went to work never knowing if that would be a day the demonstrators became violent.
As computers began to enter the workplace, I realized no one was teaching women how to use them which disadvantaged them in the workplace so I became the first person in Denver teaching computer classes solely for women so they wouldn't be left out.
Now I support an organization in Africa working to rescue young women from genital mutilation and other horrific maltreatment and to promote education for girls that fosters belief in all that they can do. I've been walking what I talk for a long time I told my friend.
Then it hit me. This lifelong passion to support people becoming their next best became my crystal clear vision.
I then worked with a series of coaches to launch an energy and light oriented coaching business. I gradually put the pieces together into how you can “Fall in Love with Living Again”.
Know that I see you, yes YOU and I'm glad you're here!
