A different kind of Career Counseling

Richard Eisenberg, Senior Web Editor, Work & Purpose Channels, Next Avenue.org recently asked us this question.”What if career counseling for older adults were more holistic?” See how we answered in this recently published piece that is the result of Eisenberg’s interview with founder, Cynthia K Wade. One of the members of the tribe said, ““I learned so much about myself and what’s important to me and who I am. It totally changed my life.” We liken our services to the classic Jimmy Stewart film, It’s a Wonderful Life. We ask, “What’s the gift you were given to share with the world and where the world wouldn’t be the same if you weren’t here to share it?”

We think that unfair, inequitable and un American.) Listen here.
