It’s time. If you’re reading this, you might be feeling the clock ticking. O.K. Perhaps you feel it’s beyond time. But whether you’re heading towards 50, in your 50’s, heading towards 60…or beyond, one thing is certain. It’s time for you to make your move.

If you’re in this part of your life, you already have the personal experience and expertise to know yourself. You might have been doing a job, being a stay-at-home mom, or running a business. You have years and decades of experience that people much younger than you don’t have.

So let’s look at the options to make your move. This is a great time to change your career – and give your life a makeover while you’re at it.

Career Moves

Amongst professionals, one thing is clear: people are changing careers more often than ever. It makes sense really. Under former job titles, we’ve often been the ones who are juggling multiple roles. 

While your title was ‘marketing director’ you probably also did other things such as: team development, assessment, client interactions, production rollouts, scheduling, conflict resolution, and writing. 

As you considercareer change, take a closer look at all the skills you’ve been practicing. This often comes to light while creating a new resume.

Remote Working

Working outside of a traditional building is an increasingly popular trend. People of all ages are finding that remote working boosts creativity, builds community, and can improve productivity.

If you’ve been thinking old school, and only looking for onsite jobs, think outside the box. You may find that being around a group of like-minded creative thinkers does your spirit a world of good.

Self-Employment

Are you dreaming up a solution to a big problem? Are you feeling that building your own business would be the best way to change yourself and benefit your community?

If so, you may want to consider getting into business for yourself. Starting your own business is something that many women find brings a new wave of energy and enthusiasm to the idea of working.

You won’t have to report to a controlling boss. You won’t have to punch a timecard. You can hire the creative staff you’d like to have at your side. 

Of course, self-employment requires a unique set of skills, savvy and business sense. If you feel like you are up for the challenge, there are many resources online and in communities.

New Wheels

Speaking of a fresh start, it’s hard to not mention the car. What are you driving these days? If your car is worn-out and looking worse for the wear, consider going for new wheels. Many women find that an electric car is good for the wallet and good for peace of mind.

Topping the list for popularity is the Subaru WRX. This is a zippy car that can be easily modified for added power, efficiency, and ease. If feeling optimistic about your car is a priority, give your wheels a boost with the modified Subaru WRX.

Fresh Look

New threads. Fresh clothes, shoes, and accessories can be a great way to upgrade your look. You won’t feel the same as you did last year—or five, or ten years ago. If your professional wardrobe is looking out-of-date, treat yourself. 

Getting new professional clothes is a smart idea. It communicates that you are ready for work, current, and motivated. If you’re thinking that no one notices, think again. That old purse looks really worn. Those shoes went out of style quite a while ago. 

Give yourself the best head start for living the life you’d like. Get a fresh look, and you’ll feel energized and motivated to keep going.

Healthy You

Making a move in your career and your life means you are committed. One of the best ways to show your commitment, dedication, and focus is to take care of your health.

Extend your goals to include healthy eating, drinking enough water, and getting regular exercise. Look into ways to relax such as learning yoga, meditating, and getting out in nature. Taking care of your health is a key part of achieving your goals and making your move.
