“Be All That You Can Be” is an old Army slogan that epitomizes what I want for anyone reading this message, but especially for adults venturing forward, trying to find a new career/job/purpose, who
- -Have existing experiences (as all adults do) and need to figure out how to transition into a new field,
- -Haven’t forayed into the job market for a while and need to get up to speed about the process, or
- -Are squished between the old assumptions about what aging meant and what the new realities are for them when it comes to needing work and wanting a career . . .
For these adults, I want to help them recareer. In time with that, I want to help our society, and individuals within it, redefine what it means to be an adult on the better side of 50.
