Your Next Chapter Map (2).png

Would you like some help in mapping out this next chapter of your life?

To make it an absolute page-turner?!

 

Maybe you’re ready to change careers or to return to a career after a number of years.

Perhaps you want to start your own business but you have no idea where to begin.

Maybe you’re ready to take a sabbatical from work to travel and need some support in figuring out how to make that happen.

Or perhaps you’re ready to finally write the book you’ve talked about writing for years.

Maybe you want to start a food or travel or photography blog and need some help bringing that vision to life.


I think midlife is when the Universe gently places her hand upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear: I’m not screwing around. It’s time.
— Brene Brown

If there are things that you've always wanted to do, later is here. 
It's time.


As a woman who celebrated my 50th birthday on March 15th 2018, I have been experiencing the sense that "it's time" first hand.

As a culture, we talk about what happens at midlife as a crisis.  Which sets us up for resignation and regret.  It can seem like it's too late to fulfill some of our bigger dreams.

To me, it feels more like an opportunity than a crisis.  We can choose to see the "big" birthdays as an opportunity for reflection, for reimagining what is possible and, perhaps, for reinvention.

I created The Midlife Courage Project because I believe - wholeheartedly - that, at midlife, it's too late NOT to pursue some of your bigger and bolder dreams. 

I created Your Next Chapter Map for me and for women like me.  For women who know that they want to start living more courageously.  To dig deeper.  To bring their bigger dreams to life. To live an irresistible obituary.


I have found in my own life and in my clients’ lives that, when we feel stuck or when we don’t pursue our most meaningful life, one or more of three things is happening:

  1. You’re not completely sure what it is that you want to achieve, explore or experience. You might not know what you do want but you do know that you’re not happy with how things are right now. You thought that your life at this age would be very different than it is and you’re ready to do something about it. You might have spent years or decades living someone else’s definition of “success” and you are now finding that it feels increasingly hollow and disappointing to you. Or you might love many aspects of your life and have had an amazing career but you still have this constant nagging sensation that you’re ready for something bigger. That you’re ready to do work or pursue dreams that every step you’ve taken in your life so far has prepared you for. But, and this is a big but, you genuinely can’t get a sense of what it is exactly that you want to change or pursue; or

  2. You know exactly what you want to change or do or pursue in this next chapter of your life but you can’t figure out the “how” of the changes you want to make. You’re at a loss as to how to get from where you are now to where you want to be; or

  3. You know what you want and you have a pretty clear idea of what you would need to do to make it happen but you just can't seem to find the time, energy or courage to make the changes you want to make or the thing that you want to do seems “too big” so you keep talking yourself out of pursuing it.  You are starting to realize that the biggest thing getting in your way is you.  This has been my personal favorite - I could have earned a PhD in procrastination but I never got round to it ...  


Your Next Chapter Map was designed to help you to overcome these obstacles:

  1. During the workshop, I will help you to get clearer on what it is you want to do or achieve or experience in this next chapter if you’re feeling confused or unsure about what it is you want to do or which dreams you want to pursue or make a priority.

  2. If you know what it is that you want to do (for example, you know you want to start a business but you’re not sure how to make that happen), I will teach you a framework to figure out the how to go from where you are in your life right now to where you want to be.

  3. If it were easy to make these changes, you would have done so already. It isn’t easy to make bigger changes and having a coach in your corner can make all the difference in the world. As part of your registration for the workshop, you can choose to add either one 45 minute or three 45 minute calls with me. During our call(s), I can answer any questions that you have or help you work through any of the steps that you are finding more challenging.
