Shaping Life after 50

So you’ve hit that half-century mark. 

Is it what you expected?

Turning fifty was a surprise to me, in so many ways.  I thought I’d have life all figured out by now.  I’d have my routines, my settled days, and I’d just cruise through the second half of life like no big deal.  Surely by age fifty I’d have this “life” thing mastered.

But I was so wrong!

Turns out, women at fifty and beyond are NOT ready – at all – to throw in the towel and live out their days in a marginal existence.

What do we want?

  • We want purpose, meaning, accomplishment
  • We want to be creative, self-assured, authentic
  • We want to be healthy, active, vital
  • We want to be seen, heard, loved, appreciated

In other words, we want to march full steam ahead into our next phase of life and we want to live it as authentically as possible.

But how do we get there?

What if you feel like you’ve reached this age and you still don’t quite have your act together?  Is that ok?

Of course it is – because that’s who you are right now.  Start where you are, and grow to where you want to be.  It’s my goal to help you reach your goals!

We’re on a journey to become our best selves, with plenty of support and encouragement around every turn. 

Are you in?

My name is Lori, and I'm a 50+ woman just like you

By the time I turned 50, I’d been married to the same guy for 20-some years and raised two children and several dogs.  I worked successfully at several different careers, from conference management to corporate training to stay at home mom to education administration. 

I’ve moved 23 times in my life, so I’m a bit of an expert at that.  Currently, home is a mile from the beach in Southern California!

I’ve always been fascinated about what makes people tick, and how wildly and wonderfully different we all are! 

I want to be the best possible me – and I want the same for you!
