Description:

This week I am speaking with Deb Livingston, domain lead in the health and wellness, cooking, food, and nutrition areas for GetSetUp. Deb made this leap only with her passion for healthy food and no formal credentials.

Deb had a pretty traditional business background but when her mother became ill, she took a break to be with her mother in her final years. Deb joined the Career Pivot community and through a bit of serendipity, she found GetSetup and became a contract guide.  This led her down a path that she could not have imagined.

She has since guided quite a few Career Pivot community members to become GetSetup guides in both full and part-time roles.

I had the GetSetUp CEO on the podcast in episode 242 called, GetSetUp is the Fastest Growing Online Learning Community of Older Adults.

I also had Vicki Soll on the podcast in episode 260 called, Vicki Soll Finds a Happy Place in Her Career by Teaching Older Adults. Teaching part-time for GetSetUp led her down a new path that she did not expect.

This week I am speaking with Susan Cornish from College Nannies, Sitters, and Tutors. You are probably going huh because most of my audience school a long time ago but I think you will find this really interesting as they are looking for people 50+.

For those of you who are looking for an encore career, this is a really interesting way to work on your terms, when you want to work and make a decent income. Childcare in many forms is a way to have an impact on families.

Here is part of the about section from Susan Cornish's bio:

Susan Cornish is a visionary with a passion to grow businesses. She blends astute sales skills with 30+ years of management in complex field organizations.  She believes that the strength of any organization is people – it’s human capital. Leading by example and understanding the keys to motivate people, Susan builds teams that take ownership of individual roles and collective success. She demonstrates an ability to manage multiple constituents in clients, business partners, vendors, and employees to accomplish goals. 

Her experience crosses both B2B and B2C corporate and entrepreneurial organizations. These companies have ranged from start-up to $1B in annual revenues.  

In 2009, she brought this passion to the fledgling franchise system, College Nannies, Sitters, and Tutors.  

Her first unit in Columbus grew rapidly despite the economy, earning the franchise Rookie of the Year.  Now with multiple units in North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, she focuses on taking College Nannies, Sitters, and Tutors to a $100M brand by increasing sales, driving operational efficiencies, and developing personnel.

This week I am speaking with Becca Levy author of Breaking the Age Code: How Your Beliefs About Aging Determine How Long and Well You Live. Becca takes a different approach in discussing ageism and what to do about it.

Read the following from her about section from her website:

Dr. Becca Levy, the leading authority on how beliefs about aging influence aging health, is Professor of Epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health and Professor of Psychology at Yale University. Her path finding studies have changed the way we think about aging and have received awards from the American Psychological Association, the Gerontological Society of America, and the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics. Dr. Levy has given invited testimony before the US Senate on the adverse effects of ageism and has contributed to US Supreme Court briefs to fight age-discrimination. She serves as a scientific advisor to the World Health Organization’s Campaign to Combat Ageism.

She received her Ph.D. in Psychology from Harvard University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Division of Aging and the Department of Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Her expertise on aging is frequently sought out by outlets such as, The New York Times, NPR, and BBC.

Ageism is upon us and I thought Becca approached this topic differently than others I have had on this podcast.

This week I am speaking with Tammy Gooler Loeb author of Work from the Inside Out: Break Through Nine Common Obstacles and Design a Career That Fulfills You and podcast host of the Work from the Inside Out podcast.

I had Tammy on the podcast way back in June of 2020 in episode 182 and that episode was called Networking and Remote Work in the COVID-19 World with Tammy Gooler Loeb [Podcast]

Here is her "about" section on Amazon:

Tammy Gooler Loeb, MBA, CPCC, is a career and executive coach who helps people pursue meaningful and fulfilling work. In addition to coaching individuals, Tammy consults and speaks on career satisfaction, leadership development, effective workplace communication, and networking strategies. Tammy has enjoyed working with clients and companies across many industries for over two decades.

Tammy also hosts a weekly podcast, Work from the Inside Out, where she shares the inspiring stories and informative lessons of people who made professional transitions to more satisfying and fulfilling work.

Her expertise has been featured in Harvard Business Review Ascend, Forbes, Fast Company, and The Boston Globe.

There were several chapters in her book that I thought were especially relevant to my audience as we exit the pandemic.
