Nancy Collamer is my guest on this latest episode the Sixty and Me Show. Nancy is a well-known career coach and author of a book called “Second Act Careers: 50 Ways to Profit from Your Passions in Semi-Retirement.” As a blogger for Next Avenue and Forbes, she writes about issues facing older women in “semi-retirement”.

We discuss how learning how to start a business after retirement is sometimes the best way to forge a new life. We also talk about the decisions women have to make in leaving an established career and putting the quest for breaking the glass ceiling behind.

Nancy gives us very practical guidance and names of sites that make it possible for women to identify their personal passion and discover how to create a profitable business.

Our discussion also touches on the life of an entrepreneur and the qualities that a woman has to develop in order to be successful. Based on her years of experience, Nancy also shares some wonderful stories of people in retirement who have created businesses based on their passions and interests.

In our interview, Nancy provides a wealth of information on the online resources for small business owners that are available today. Finally, we discuss how truly fortunate women over 60 are today to have so much technology and expertise at our finger tips to make the transition into a dynamic and active period of work that we love.
