Web Environment – your website


Last week, we talked about setting up email. Conventional wisdom in the Internet age is that you need a website to drive your business. What we have found is actually the contrary; a website can actually put a halt on your business's growth. We've all Googled ourselves out of curiosity, but what about after you [...]

Launching your web environment


I often find that many of my clients ask me for advice.  Coaching, in its purest sense, does not give advice; we are trained extensively NOT to give advice. In fact, in order to be accredited by the International Coaching Federation, we have to show through our coaching that we do not give advice. So [...]

Did we make a difference?


I have been researching the third stage of life, what I call Life 3.0 for some time now. A trend which I am finding consistent is that the “reporting" on what "boomers" are doing with their lives is centered around "senior stuff.” This gives the impression that we are solely focused on creating systems, products, [...]

According to a Met Life study, 12 million Americans between the ages of 44 and 70 want to start either small businesses or non-profits, create jobs, and meet community needs.
