I am currently reading The Big Shift: Navigating to the New Stage Beyond Midlife, by Mark Freedman. As a result of learning about Marc and the Encore movement I decided to start-up a blog/website called Encore Australia.
I am hoping to tap into the numbers of baby boomers in Australia who are currently trying to navigate the second half of their lives in the 21st Century with out-dated guidance from the previous century.
My own experience bears witness to the uncharted terrain traversed after giving up full-time employment. I now feel better informed due to reading Marc Freedman’s book and finding other resources on the internet.
An interesting organisation I found today is The Transition Network. It provides a range of services to women 50+.
Once again, I am looking for similar resources that may be available in Australia. I will do some more research tomorrow 🙂
