Let there be no doubt that I celebrated my half-century birthday a number of years ago. I’ve also enjoyed a long history as a career strategist/consultant and have worked with thousands of baby boomers dealing with job search and career transition issues.
My personal mission is to reach as many of my gender and generation as possible to celebrate our remarkable history, our awe-inspiring futures, and just plain hoot and holler as only the menopausal can. We gals have overcome some pretty formidable challenges and we’re not going to let a few wrinkles stop us now. We’re bringing a whole new look and spirited style to the aging process. In fact, our next major revolution will be nothing short of astounding. So, here’s to us, the incredible, incomparable, fabulous, female boomers and to embracing life fully on the feisty side of fifty!
