Trading In Your Big-Deal Job

The Big-Deal Job

It is the back-to-school season.  With my youngest daughter, we are up to our ears in AP course choices, studying for SATs and planning the Junior Year College tour. With my eldest daughter, we are at the other ‘end’, planning for life as an Ivy League post-graduate.
The rat race is on.  And apparently it just gets hotter and hotter and starts earlier and earlier.
The end goal?
To get a Big-Deal Job that will pay you a Big-Deal Salary.
The First Round of the Big-Deal marathon is to ensure your kid get into the ‘right’ university.  To do this, your child needs to break his back to get a 4.0 GPA (or is now a 5.0?) and pad his extra-curricular time with endless swim meets, ballet recitals or tuba lessons.   But that’s just the warm-up.  Once they get into university, the Big-Deal stakes just get hotter: ruthless grade competitions, insidious expensive internships where kids pay for the privilege of working for free, and endless fretting about graduate schools and/or the Job after college.

Yesterday, I did something I had never done before.  I wrapped up a little package in simple brown paper. Inside was a photo of a person who has been ‘fighting’ with me for years and who has been occupying a lot of space in my life, my head and my spirit.

I took the package, went to my garden and buried it.   A small act that very well may change the course of my life.

For the first time in my life, I was genuinely ‘letting go’.

Ironically, the path to reinvention is often not about ‘adding something’ but actually removing it.  In common day parlance, it is called ‘letting go’.  

Letting go –of a feeling, of a habit, of resentment- is an absolute necessity if you want to move on in life and enjoy it to its fullest potential.

Letting go is important at all phases of our lives but is imperative if, at 50 something, we hope to reinvent and reinvigorate our lives. Read More…

I am about to launch a worldwide, breaththrough Social Survey about the “F” word–what it is like to be a forty or fifty something in 2012.
And we need your help!
First, we would love you to fill in our survey which should only take you a few minutes but should be fun. (As a thank you, we will send you a copy of the final results!)

Second, in October we will be starting a 6 week long contest where you answer a simple 40-50 something question either with an essay, a photo or a video…and you can win some amazing prizes!

More on that to come…

Are You Over 40…Your Time is Now!

Are you over 40? Did you know that Your Time Is Now?

More and more people are realizing that instead being the ‘beginning the end’, the 40 and 50 something years and beyond can be the richest times in our lives at every level…from relationships to work. And far from being the ‘beginning of the end’, your 40s and 50s are absolutely the best time to reinvent yourself, take control of your life and income and create the freedom and financial power you have always dreamed about.

These are uncertain times. But while uncertain times have their share of challenges, they are also rife with opportunity. Contrary to popular belief, this is an ideal time to claim your place in the sun and create the life and wealth you have always wanted.
