How is someone who has run a public company going to explain he’ll take a job as a night watchman?
Have you ever thought about starting fresh with a new career? Maybe it’s time for a complete change? If you’re in the “second half of life,” you may be thinking about taking on work or creating a business to help people or focus on a cause that’s meaningful to you.
On Thanksgiving, I’m sharing another story I hope will inspire you to expand how you are thinking about your job search, no matter what your age.
Do you have an idea that will make a difference in your community in the areas of education, social services, environment, health care and helping others engage in encore careers (careers that combine purpose, passion and a paycheck)? If you are at least 45 years old, take note! Civic Ventures just announced an opportunity to win $5000 and mentorship to make your idea a reality.
Attending Civic Ventures’ Purpose Prize was a great reminder that “when there is a will, there is a way.” I met countless people who have created organizations that fill important needs in their communities and around the world. Prepare to be inspired!
