June 23rd, 2009

“Man is not the enemy here, but the fellow victim.” Betty Friedan The male mid-life is often talked about in general or humorous terms, but rarely is it discussed seriously. Jed Diamond is a world authority on men in the mid-life period, and here he suggests an alternative to the traditional treatment given to men in the media. “Dear Abby: I am a 50-year-old man who has been married for 22 years. My wife and I have two wonderful teen-aged children. About six months ago, my wife\’s niece (I\’ll call her Rene), whom I had never met, came from another country to live with us so... Read More

7 Traits of Women Entrepreneurs

June 23rd, 2009

The first wave of baby boomer women, now in their 50s and early 60s, are embracing the idea of striking out on their own as entrepreneurs. Many are looking for an “encore” career where they can pursue what they care about and generate an income for the second half of life.

Are You a Commitment Junkie?

June 22nd, 2009

…bring some clarity to your commitments…. We all do it. We all feel the pressure of being in lots of places at the same time. We all know what it\’s like to say “yes” when we really want to say “no”. We make promises. We wish we hadn\’t made promises. Sometimes we renege on those promises. But mostly we make the commitment, stick by the commitment and, whether we like it or not, perform on that promise. Keeping a commitment or a promise is a major deposit and breaking one is a major withdrawal. Stephen Covey taught us that. Keeping our commitments to others puts us in good... Read More

You ARE who you hang with…

June 22nd, 2009

I read once that you are the “average” of the people you hang around. If you hang out with people who are unmotivated, are complainers, look for problems rather than solutions and are “talkers” not “doers”, you’re putting big barriers up toward reaching your goals. Take a look at the people you spend time with. Are they like-minded? Do they have similar values? Are they working on their personal and professional strategies for success? Are you? If you’re feeling stuck in your own story and frustrated with your life and career, part of your problem could be who you hang out with! Get... Read More

Baby Boomers: Top Trends

June 17th, 2009

Baby boomers are known for being trendsetters. We moved families into the suburbs; began the peace trend of the 60s due to the Viet Nam War; entered college in droves; more women climbed the corporate ladder than ever before; gave birth to less children; bought mini-vans and station wagons to lug our kids around; began the exercise craze – plus many other trends that have staying power.

Leveraging Your Future

A friend\’s hairstylist saw her bookings drop as the economy fell, ultimately losing her job at a salon.

I regularly talk to people on my radio show, work with individuals or client organizations, and connect with people when I speak at conferences. Recently I\’ve... Read More
