New Milestone Achieved at Age 61.. It's Never Too Late!

Don’t ever think you’re too old to step into a new career doing the work you are meant to do!!!

I remember my old cubicle life... desiring something different but not knowing where to begin. I didn’t want to go back to college and start from scratch, but I knew I wasn’t where I was supposed to be.

So I just started putting one foot in front of the other, taking action on what felt right.

And last August THIS was something that felt right. I knew it as soon as I heard about it. And I was able to get in on the ground floor of this new certification program.

So I jumped in with both feet!!! And what a ride it’s been!

I just graduated, after spending a semester learning the science and then a semester of practicum work, and I am now getting to do the work I know I’ve been put here to do.

It may have taken me 61 years to get here but better late than never, right?!?

I am officially a trained and certified Master NeuroCoach!!!! ‍ Hot damn!

Thank you to all...

It's Finally Here!

Have you ever had a great idea that you never implemented?

Well, I’ve had quite a few, but this one was one I finally pushed to the TOP of my priority list and made happen and I’m so FRIGGIN’ excited about it!

When it came in the mail two days ago, I actually jumped up & down and screeched! LOL!

I sat on this project for awhile, since last November! But it’s DONE and now it’s here - right before a new quarter! How perfect was that?!?! #thankyouuniverse

If you’re wondering what IT is, it’s my unique system that I created and use every single day.

I used it to first imagine and then create my passion-filled and purpose-driven online business and soon I’ll be giving one to each of my new students when they join The Second Half S.P.A.R.K. School when I open the doors to enrollment in a couple of weeks.

There are a lot of passions about to be uncovered & realized in the next 90 days and I can’t wait to lead my new...

My Life Journey In Discovering What Finally Lights Me Up

Has your road to fulfillment been a conventional one?

I took a conventional path to a conventional job where I punched the proverbial ticket of success which led to an impressive paycheck and an even more impressive title but every time I got promoted, I became less fulfilled.

My bosses would reward me with new titles and generous salary bumps, often with nice stock options, but they never once ASKED me what role would most light me up. And I, unfortunately, didn't even have the answer so I just let my ego lead the way.

As my resume got more impressive, I got more disconnected from my purpose, from my zone of genius, from the work I'm here to do.

I didn't know then what I know now, but that's okay. I give myself grace because it was that journey that led me where I am today. And I'd definitely say what I do today is unconventional!

In fact, an online business wasn't even a possibility when I started my career!!!

There’s no set way to get where you’re meant to go... Our...

A Passion-filled Job Changed Me: Establishing My Online Business

I’m in love, I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it! But you may surprised to know that it's not romance love. (Well, I am in love with my husband but that is not what today's blog is about!)

I am in love with what I do!!! I just lights up my soul every single day!

I’ve been a coach for over 6 years now, but it's not been the same kind of coaching the whole time... It's definitely been an evolution!

I started out dabbling in coaching with a network marketing company. It was low risk and I could easily do it on the side. And it didn't require a new degree or any kind of certification. I could coach just based on my own personal experience with the products.

But the more I did it, I realized I wanted to be my own boss - to be a professionally trained coach and to help at a deeper level. I wanted to build a business of my own where my success was not reliant on another company's decisions. (And I never really was a fan of the network marketing model).

I've enjoyed...

Check Out My New Office Space!

I love it when an idea comes to fruition! 

About a week ago I mentioned to my husband that I don't like the office space that is set up for me in our basement. And now that I'm home full time, having a good place to work is so important.

Instead of going to "my office" in the basement every morning, I've been working in our family room, on the couch, which is not ideal because I tend to go nonstop...

I just keep going & going from 7 or 8am until 8 or 9p at night because I LOVE WHAT I DO SO MUCH... #alittleobsessed

My husband was all on board with this because he is starting to get jealous of the Mac on my lap that's getting more attention than him! 

So I started thinking about other spaces in our house where I could set up an office and I had this idea that we could add a desk in our spare bedroom which he uses as an office! 

Since he really only uses it to store his files and pick up papers on the printer, I thought it could work... And he agreed!

Since he loves...

AHA Moments to Inspire You!

I've found my 2nd half, the backside of life as they say, to be the upside, not the downslide we tend to dread when we are younger.

And for that reason, it's my passion to help others get excited about this phase... to have hope and excitement for the adventures to come, whatever they may be! 

So I put together a free workshop called Midlife MOJOO Mastery to teach women how to uplevel their 2nd half and I love seeing all of the AHA moments from the women who are participating... 

Here are a few from the 1st of 3 trainings:

"Eureka - Never underestimate someone's capacity for growth - The 2nd half is the best part of life. Thanks Laurie!"

"I don’t know how I ran across you.... but I feel The universe had a hand in it. I just made a post the other day how I have devoted the last 29 years (well still am) to being a mom. That my twins graduated and I’m a somewhat empty nester. I have a daughter with special needs who is at home for now till she goes back to college. But...

I friggin' did it!

I friggin' just took action on the 2nd scariest thing I've ever done in my entire 60 years on Earth!!!

I had SO.MUCH.FEAR about this but I did it anyway! 

You want to know why?

Because on the other side of fear is growth, adventure and magic! ALWAYS!!!

I took this scary action because the desire to do it was coming from my heart.... It was an inner voice thing, from deep inside of me. It's hard to explain but it just felt good - even though it scared the s*** out of me!

Being scared doesn't mean it's not right. Fear comes from doing something that you've never done before and usually what your conscious brain (ego) is trying to convince you not to do because it feels unsafe.

You see, your brain tries to keep you in your comfort zone because doing something that you've not done before, and which has a lot of fuzziness around it, does not fall into the safe category according to your logical brain.

I KNOW THIS because I teach it; however, that doesn't mean it comes any easier to...
