I am one of the Baby Boomer generation, born between 1946 and 1964, and now in my Third Age. At age 55, I gave my career as a Housing Director in social housing and set out to create my Third Life, a life that I would enjoy in which I could grow and develop. I trained as a life coach and set up my own business.
I am Yorkshire born and bred but have lived in the London area for over 30 years. I am married and have 2 grown up daughters.
For most of my generation, we grew up thinking that we would work for forty plus years and then retire to live a life of leisure. The world has changed enormously since then and we can now expect an additional 25 to 30 years of active life after we reach 50 and that has created an Age of Opportunity.
Some of us are deciding that we want something more than the 'work till you drop' culture and are looking for a fulfilling, purposeful life and the chance to grow, develop and enjoy what we do after the age of 50.
Many people feel they want life to be different but are not sure what that could be or how to achieve it.
That is now my passion, to help as many people as possible to see the opportunities they have and to design their own life of choice.
