I had a very successful small business for 14 years and then the crash hit. I closed my business four years ago and since then I have felt displaced and have been worked a few part time jobs and am currently working a sales representative for a wonderful company. My daughter is planning on graduating from high school early and will be leaving home to attend college a year earlier than I had anticipated. I am an active parent and am gearing up for an empty nest. I’m focusing on building my business while preparing for my daughter’s move out of state to further her education. I have a wonderful husband who is very supportive and a close group of friends. I could use guidance on building my business and other things I can do to earn an income. I have been self employed most of my life and would appreciate input for the next stage of my life. Thank you in advance.

    Thanks for posting, Jamie.

    You sound like a very resourceful and pro-active woman with many great support network. This could be a wonderfully transformative time for you, and exactly the type of topic which coaching is ideally suited for.

    I can imagine numerous fun ways to clarify what is most important to learn and do in your new life stage, and would love to explore those with you. But for now, I might point you toward the raw material of your own values as a place to start building your dreams.

    Very simply…
    When are happiest?
    What is present when you are feeling the most fulfilled, energized, and in charge of your life? What kinds of people or relationships are present? What types of tasks make you pleasantly lose track of time?
    What are your pet peeves and must haves? How can you avoid the former and guarantee the latter?
    What is most important FIRST?

    Just begin something now, every day. Trust the baby steps of life. Trust the journey and not getting anywhere, especially fast. We are all too much in a hurry to get “there” but where is there? Once we arrive we realize the road curves and we have another one to take. If you have a loving, supportive husband, you are blessed, enjoy this time, don’t rush and try to discover the possibilities that are waiting to be released from inside of you.
