Two Friends Ditch The Corporate Job Search; Launch “Second Act Women” Second Act Stories

    • Careers

Barbara Brooks and Guadalupe Hirt are two, talented women based in Denver, Colorado. Both have entrepreneurial backgrounds but had the same plan as they approached their 50s: Get a stable, corporate job...Enjoy solid health benefits....And put away some retirement funds. But like many older workers they hit a brick wall called ageism.
After dozens of resume submissions and almost no interviews, they took a different direction. Barbara and Guadalupe formed an organization called Second Act Women. Not surprisingly, we love the name of their organization that helps women in their 40s, 50s and above navigate the latter stage of their professional lives. At the center of the group is an amazing event called "Biz Life Con" an active online community on Facebook. After a successful start in Denver, they are now in the early stages of taking their approach to other cities in the USA.
