Description:

This week, I will interview Mark Miller, that is MARK Miller of the Retirement Revised newsletter and podcast. Mark is a good friend and colleague, writes for the New York Times and many other major outlets.

I am a subscriber to Mark’s newsletter and podcast. His most recent newsletter included a PBS News Hour segment Why millions of older Americans are retiring early in the wake of the pandemic. 

I will embed the video in the full show notes linked below. I found this a pretty compelling piece on why so many are retiring but I am concerned will they be able to stay retired or will they have to unretire. If they need to return to the work after 2, 3, or more years what might that look like?

I wanted to discuss this with someone who really understands this arena and could dig deeper into how this will affect those of us in the 2nd half of life who are not retiring just yet.

Description:

This week I am speaking with one of my favorite people, Diann Wingert and we will be discussing How to Create Success by Outsmarting Your Brain. I have had Diann on the podcast twice before in episodes #204 and #214 to discuss mindsets. I strongly suggest you listen to those episodes.

I was listening to one of Diann’s episodes from her Driven Woman podcast called Make Success a No Brainer and said to myself I need to have Diann on to discuss this topic. It basically comes down to the fact that your brain is built to keep you alive and safe. When you are trying something new or live in uncertain times, which we sure are living in, then your brain is not your friend. It will hold you back to keep you safe and alive. I think you will find this an interesting conversation.

This week I am speaking with Joanne Kaminski, owner of OnlineTutorCoach.com and she helps tutors start, and grow their online tutoring businesses.

Here is her bio from her website:

Joanne Kaminski is a former teacher and Reading Specialist with 10 years of experience turned online reading tutor.  She is the founder of the Online Tutor Coach, LLC where she helps other tutors who are great at tutoring but struggle with attracting students.  Joanne impacts over 20,000 tutors through her YouTube channel, Facebook Group, Instagram, and podcast.  She is the author of How to Start an Online Tutoring Business Making 4-5 Figures a Month which is available on Amazon.

When I was teaching high school math, I was approached by a lot of people that this was something they would like to do as an encore career. Becoming a teacher is a really hard transition. If you are interested in this go listen to episode 227 which was called Teaching High School Chemistry as an Encore Career with Keith Stolzenbach

Becoming an online tutor is much easier and equally as rewarding.

This week I am speaking with Darcy Eikenberg, author of Red Cape Rescue: Save Your Career Without Leaving Your Job.

Let me read you a snippet from her bio.

Darcy helps high-performance professionals accelerate their leadership in ways that work for their organizations and for themselves. With a practical, real-life perspective, and with over 20 years of experience working with top companies such as The Coca-Cola Company, Microsoft, and Deloitte, Darcy’s clients consistently grow to greater levels of clarity, confidence, and control in their work and lives—all leading to better business results.

Before launching her own business, Darcy was a Principal at human resources consulting firm Hewitt Associates (now part of Aon), where she served on both the Southeast and the North American Communication Consulting Leadership teams. In those roles, she was accountable for developing and retaining talent, building managers and teams, and growing a healthy bottom line. She also innovated and led an internal coaching program supporting high potential associates and high revenue teams.

Darcy reached out to me about being on the podcast and offered me a copy of the book. After reading the book I thought this would be an ideal discussion to have in these crazy times. I found the book very actionable in helping people get their heads on straight.
