Perhaps, you have identified your life's mission and become a co-creator of it in your career or by charting your own life's journey. If not yet, all kinds of wonderful and exciting things can still happen in an encore career before and during your retirement years. Knowing and implementing your life purpose allows you to connect with people of like-mind. Opportunities surface. You become clear on your direction. Time becomes your friend.
Other boomers in the blog roundup also have thoughts about encore careers:
- Karen Austin at The Generation Above Me finds inspiration for her own encore career by reading about others who have made the switch.
- Laura Lee Carter of the Midlife Crisis Queen found her purpose and encore career by becoming a blogger at 52. Now, at age 58, she shares: "What Six Years of Blogging Has Done for Me..."
- Tom Sightings of Sightings From Sixty, who had a medical scare, contributes to the encore career theme by writing about “Enough Money, Who Cares?” Tom reasons that boomers need to take care of their health rather than worrying about whether they’ll have enough money to live to be 100.
- On my blog, I write about how encore careers are one way baby boomers are changing retirement.
