Laura's insights and thoughtful ideas and suggestions can provide the motivation to see new opportunities that point toward more fully living and using the skills and talents we all possess to the fullest. Her sharing of her own challenges and successes brings greater meaning and understanding.
Laura is founder of Career Choices with Laura, a coaching practice helping "boomer generation" (as young as 50), to find fulfilling second careers.
Laura has written a marvelous chapter, showing midlife professionals how they can find second careers offering them both personal fulfillment and income.
She offers readers helpful advice in choosing a career based on their skills, interests, and lifestyle, then talks about how to launch their new venture.
Laura examines three major ways to approach this new career. One is to be a "career recycler," and apply transferrable skills to a different field. Another is to be a "career changer," who chooses both a new field/industry as well as their role in it. A third option is to be a "career maker"--an entrepreneur starting their own business.
She then discusses the myriad opportunities for new kinds of careers in our current economic environment, many of these opportunities have a philanthropic element
Laura offers both inspiration and concrete advice to those of us wishing to "reinvent" ourselves in the second half of our work life.
