I am so happy that you are here! If you want to live a life filled with purpose, clarity and ease, we have a lot in common.
We are both busy women who are trying to juggle faith, family and career without losing ourselves along the way. We know there is so much more in life for us, but our own limiting beliefs get in the way of achieving the rich life God intends for us to enjoy. We feel like we have to manage the universe, while neglecting our own dreams and desires. Sometimes we just feel drained instead of fulfilled. And too often, we think we have to conform to the world’s view of success instead of being our authentic selves.
Well my friend, it’s time for you to have a flourishing life! I have been where you are now, wondering who I was and what I was going to do with the rest of my life. Thankfully, I have emerged from the mire of fear and self-doubt into a life that is truly abundant. Like the lotus flower that I chose for my logo, I am no longer feeling dormant, but instead growing with vitality more each day as I live out my own purpose, to inspire passion and joy.
How did I get here? I first connected with my life’s purpose, and then I designed a life rooted in that God-given calling. My journey has had lots of curves and bumps, but I have learned to stay focused on why I was created first, using that powerful knowledge as my GPS for everything I do.
Today, I work with women as a Christian Life Purpose Coach to lead them through a transformational process so they, too, can live a flourishing life. I have VIP Clients who receive laser-focused personal guidance, support and accountability for their reinvention journey. I lead Mastermind Groups and workshops, going through the same process with small groups of women who receive the priceless wisdom from their own personal advisory board in addition to private coaching. In early 2017, I will be publishing a self-study program for those who are highly motivated and want to follow the plan on their own.
I’d love to send you my e-book, “10 Powerful Reasons to Know Your Purpose in Life, and How to Find It.” You’ll discover why knowing your God-given purpose is vital to having clarity, passion and deep contentment in your life. I also share the basic steps to discovering your calling as you reflect on your past, examine your present and envision your ideal future. Click here to request your downloadable e-book now.
I want you to know that you are a precious child of God! He has a unique purpose for your life, and He wants you to flourish, not wither. He intends for you to use the gifts He gave you as only you can, shining brightly and passionately every day as you honor your calling. I hope you will become who God created you to be and live life to the fullest! Please let me know if you need a personal guide for your transformational journey.
A little about me…….
As I look back over my life, I realize that everything I have done has been to prepare me for my current role as The Reinvention Strategist for Christian Women. I have been an accountant, a bank marketing officer, a wedding coordinator, a women’s ministry leader and a school board president. Those diverse experiences in business, marketing, hospitality and leadership have come together to make me flourish as I have reinvented my life after 50.
When my husband and I became empty-nesters I was hit with a hollow feeling and wondered, “What’s next?” My life had been wrapped up in serving others for 25 years as a stay-at-home mom with a few part-time jobs, and I had lost my own identity. According to society, I was too old to start over, and it was time for me to find some new hobbies to occupy my time. But I knew otherwise. I still wanted to be productive while doing something fulfilling and fun.
Enter my self-critic, loud and clear: How would “rich life experiences” look on a resume when competing against younger candidates who had sharper skills and memories? How could a 50-something woman find employment in a world that focuses on young talent while discounting the virtues of aging?
Even though I was paralyzed by fear, I pushed myself to step way beyond my comfort zone to do something totally new, becoming a first-time solo-entrepreneur at 53. My dreams turned in to reality, and on February 1, 2010, FlourishOver50.com was launched as a lifestyle resource for women over 50.
During the first year of my new venture, I worked relentlessly to drive traffic to my site. My sole mission was to be on the first page of Google®! When I was there, I knew there must be more to life than that noteworthy honor, so I took some time off to reflect and do some deep soul searching. That’s when God revealed to me that I was playing too small, not fully using the unique gifts He had given me to reach my highest potential. It would be as a Christian coach for women that I would make my greatest impact, guiding them to transform themselves from the inside out, loving who they are and claiming the value they bring to the world.
Since that time, I have continued to grow personally and professionally, and success has a much different meaning now. Sure, I would like to change the entire world! But changing the lives of women one at a time, and knowing the beautiful ripple effects that will occur, brings a richness to my career than being a “globally-recognized expert on women over 50” ever could have.
As I live out my own core purpose, to inspire passion and joy, I now lead women to evaluate their lives, explore their options and create a strategic plan to let their true brilliance shine brightly, achieving success on their own terms. After all, that’s what I have done for myself, and I am proof that it works!
