This is the first episode of 2022 and I thought we would start with a 2022 Career Reality Check-In for the 50+ Crowd with John Tarnoff. Last year, we recorded a similar episode and it was the most downloaded new episode for the year.
I have had John on the podcast in episodes 232, 208, 152, and 120. John has been the most frequent guest on the podcast in the 5+ years I have been producing this podcast.
I consider John Tarnoff to be a peer, colleague, and friend. John specializes in helping those in the 2nd half of life reinvent themselves. In 2017, he published his book, Boomer Reinvention: How to Create Your Dream Career.
The following is a snippet from his website.
After my startup went bust, I decided to go back to school to earn a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology – a branch of behavioral psychology that focuses on self-responsibility and self-forgiveness as pathways to healing and change. I didn’t think that I wanted to become a psychologist but I hoped to learn more about myself, what my strengths and weaknesses were, and what lessons I needed to learn to move forward.
Now, fifteen years later, as a career coach, author, and speaker, my mission is to support professionals over fifty to redefine, build and sustain second-act careers beyond traditional retirement. I’ve created a more personal-growth approach to career development, vs the traditional HR skills-based paradigm – starting with the notion that your ideal second-act career is already inside you.
