    5 Fascinating Second Act Career Stories with Andy Levine #183

    Description: This week is a different kind of episode. I am a big fan of the Second Act Stories podcast. I met Andy Levine who produces the Second Act Stories podcast even before he launched it. He came to me for some advice on getting it launched.
    Andy interviews some really interesting people who have made some really interesting pivots. He produces an episode every other week and he interviews just about everyone in person, which has an issue during this pandemic. I want you to hear some of these stories.
    Andy has picked out his top 5 stories from his 70 plus episodes. I will play a clip from each and Andy will give you some background. I will provide a link to the full episodes for each in the show notes.
    Andy’s bio:
    Andy Levine is the creator and host of “Second Act Stories.” A fascination with storytelling and second acts triggered the launch of this podcast. He lives in Ocean Grove, New Jersey, about five blocks from the Atlantic Ocean. He manages a specialized marketing firm for his day job.
    He is always on the lookout for a good story and has traveled to California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Virginia to conduct face-to-face interviews with podcast guests.

    Are You Prepared to be an 'After the Age of 50' Entrepreneur? #180

    Description: Author Wendy Mayhew has been an entrepreneur for 40 years. Her most recent businesses are WISE - Seniors in Business and WISE 50 over 50 Awards.
    WISE - Seniors in Business was formed to change how older entrepreneurs are perceived and to guide wannabe older entrepreneurs in deciding if entrepreneurship is for them. Wendy has quickly become Canada's leading expert on older entrepreneurship. She has done extensive research and understands the challenges facing this newest and fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs. Wendy is a sought after speaker and workshop facilitator by business organizations now starting to realize the importance of serving this newest group of entrepreneurs.
    Seeing the gap of information available to older entrepreneurs, Wendy authored WISER: The Definitive Guide to Starting a Business After the Age of 50 to assist this group of new entrepreneurs in starting their businesses.
    Wendy also offers assistance and guidance for business organizations who are setting up programs specific to new entrepreneurs starting a business later in life.
    The WISE 50 over 50 Awards recognize and celebrate Canadian entrepreneurs over the age of 50. With the support of well over 100 Canadian organizations sharing information on the awards through their networks, the 50 over 50 Awards have generated awareness on the most under-supported and underserved group of new entrepreneurs in Canada.

    Can Phil Repurpose His Career? Part 4 of 4 #179

    Can Phil Repurpose His Career? Part 4 of 4 #179

    Description: This is a 4-episode series where the first 2 episodes comprise the first feedback session. The next 2 episodes are the 2nd and 3rd feedback sessions. I do not record the 4th feedback session as it is a review and usually gets too personal for this podcast.
    This week is the 4th episode of the Career Pivot evaluation series called "Can Phil Repurpose His Career?" This will be the fourth individual I have done this with.
    Previously, I worked with Tim, Sarah, and Juan which are not their real names. This time it is Phil. Phil is in his early 60s, spent 20 years in the military, and spent the last 10 or so years in the private sector.
    If you have not listened to the first three episodes in the series, I suggest you stop and go back and listen to episode 165, 166, and 169. In this episode, I take Phil through his Birkman Stress report where we will discuss Phil’s needs in 3 different areas and things he can do to stay out of stress.
    You can download the reports here.

    If this process interests you, I am offering a 30% discount if you tell me you listened to this podcast.
    This is a month-long process and you will be required to do a fair amount of introspection, but most people who have gone through this process have gained a great deal of insight into themselves. More importantly, they have learned how they changed their behaviors to fit in with work or society.
    I know that personally, I learned that I twisted myself into a pretzel to make myself successful. Unfortunately, when I hit my 50s, it became exhausting.
    Again, if you are interested, just email me at podcast@careerpivot.com. Before listening to this episode, I recommend you download the reports from careerpivot.com/phil.
