My Adventures in Encore Living

art of encore living Jun 06, 2022

About 7 years ago, I knew I wanted to make a transition in what I did to make a living, but I had ZERO clarity about what that could be.

And to be completely transparent, I had it pretty good doing what I was already doing.

As a musician and guitar studio owner, I literally PLAYED for a living (the pic above is me appearing in concert on PBS).

And the gig was not only fun, but it was also fulfilling and financially successful.

But I was being called to be and do more and better.

I KNEW I was not tapping into my true and full potential and that I had MUCH more to contribute.

Can you relate?

I find this experience familiar to others in my circles of connection approaching or already past retirement age (whatever that is).

But what do you do when you don't know what to do?

For people like me, you just start doing SOMETHING.

And I did.

Blogging and broadcasting led to books and businesses.

Coaching and consulting led to courses and community.

I was becoming an encorepreneur (someone nearing or reaching retirement and undertaking a new venture) before I even knew what that was.


There are LOTS of reasons, but one tops the list.

I didn't want to die with the difference only I could make still inside.

But finding and building my "what's next" involved a LONG walk in the wilderness of doubt and confusion and was often an exhausting grind.

(Don't get me wrong there was also PLENTY of thriving while I was striving, including a 4-year stint as a head Coach in Seth Godin's Akimbo Workshops!)
