Career changes after job loss - renewed encouragement to follow your dreams

There is a website community called GrowingBolder.com that has a mission of raising awareness of the value of not growing older, but "growing". Our society has looked at getting older as a time when things stop and careers stop. Never more than now does this attitude cry for change! With nearly 80 million Baby Boomers approaching the age of 60, and the current economical meltdown causing record breaking job loss, there are just far too many people facing this exact decision. The jobs that we all had may not be there, even as the economy begins to rebound. This will be a time of changing careers to many of us.

So now, more than ever before, we need to rediscover ourselves and have faith that we can do this! The site GrowingBolder.com is a great example of this philosophy. There is video after video of people over the age of 40 and 50 that are setting the bar for all of us. They are challenging all of us, not just the Boomers, but those in their 20's and 30's to become more aware that taking care of themselves at a younger age just makes growing Bolder that much easier and productive.

The video is about 15 minutes long, but interesting enough and again, very inspiring! If you are wondering or self-doubting yourself right now, the video will re-new your faith and confidence to follow your dreams!
