I got married and had my son before I decided to be a surgeon .
I did all the things that I needed to do and then I realized...
There's a lot of things that have changed for me but at the same time...
Life just happened.
And then there was a point where I said, "Well, is this all there is?"
I did the things that I thought I was supposed to do even though it wasn't true to who I am.
I had worked so hard to learn surgery and start my practice.
And I just remember sitting there, 40 years old, "Okay. Why am I not happy? Is this all there is?"
Have you woken up one day asking the question, "Is this it?"
It's like awakening to a realization that all the time spent on what seemed to be "the dream or the ideal" wasn't what you wanted.
You suddenly feel like there's this hole inside of you, telling you that something's lacking...
And then fear creeps in and whispers, "It's too late to start over now."
But you don't have to listen to that voice.
Because when you do, it could prevent you from taking action.
Here's the good news though...
Starting over as GenX could be an exciting time in your life.
Yes, and you're probably about 40 to 55 years old.
It's the moment when you get to rediscover yourself, step out of uncertainty, and become confident in doing the things that light you up...
Whether you want to build a business or change career paths—this is it!
And if this sounds too good to be true for you...
You might have already heard that more than 50% of small businesses are started by women in their 50s.
And the women who are part of the menopause movement who are listening to this podcast...
These are the women who are gonna start businesses.
And these are the women that need support.
That could be YOU.
If you have a calling, that calling is going to pull you wherever you need to go.
And you don't have to pay somebody 10,000 or 20,000 dollars a year to show you what to do.
