  1. Be clear about what you are going for in your life. What supports you financially, emotionally and philosophically. I have found that the more work I do on the person I want to be in the world and what I want to uphold the more clear I am on what really supports my nature. This has always led me to take the risks that have given me a rich work experience. Certainly not a traditional path, which has created it’s own unique challenges, but has always allowed me to land on my feet and support myself doing work that is closer and closer to my perfect work.
    I always have a mindset of learning from everything I do and find the things that build me and add to my skill set. As a result at age 55 I am embarking on an exciting new venture that is the result of two different people referring me for the same partnership. I got the interview. Not just a job, but an opportunity that will result in an equity partnership so that I can leverage my time, allow the flexibility that I am looking for, will stretch my capabilities in developing people and organizations and gets me out in the world in a fun, creative, interactive way.
    So staying engaged in your life, wishing, dreaming, not settling, constantly educating yourself and helping others where ever and whenever you can. You can create your life the way you want if you don’t expect it to fall into your lap and you are up for reaping the rewards equivalent to you efforts.

    My thought is this that all of this applies even if you have a job. All the same advice applies: Ask questions, research the history, the people, the market and business direction. Don’t wait for someone to ask you to make a difference. When you see a need, make a plan and create your own opportunity.
