Geneva resident, Cynthia Wade offers opportunities for “do-overs” at St. Charles Noon Rotary Meeting
Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 11:45 AM at The Office, Dining & Spirits, 201 East Main Street, St. Charles
Cynthia Wade believes so much in second chances that she started an organization to help give others just that opportunity. Working as a recruiter for the past 10 years, Wade discovered that even though the economy is improving, a significant number of people are still out of work.
“These people often need more assistance than a fresh resume and an improved LinkedIn profile can provide,” she said. “They need additional support to help them through this transition.” As a result, she created the nonprofit do-over.me to serve the Kane County community and help people who are dealing with any type of lifestyle transition. “We help people who are facing changes in their lives due to a career shift, death, divorce, empty nest, voluntary retirement or even a health scare,” Wade said.
Wade meets many people who are attempting to transition to something different. The severity of the transition often paralyzes them with fear, she added. “They are afraid to move forward because changes would have to be made that would drastically change their lives,” Wade said. “What is in front of them looks dramatically different than what is behind them and that’s scary for most people.”
The meeting will include a short presentation and an extensive Q&A session. Participants will hear about the history of do-over.me, learn about their success stories, and understand exactly how do-over.me can support them!
