TITLE: Looking to reinvent or pivot? Beware these common traps! Part 2 of 2
It’s difficult to reinvent yourself even when you know you need to make a pivot or change. Change, afterall, is incredibly difficult. That’s why there are shelves and shelves and shelves of books on the topic, and an endless array of podcasts designed to help you master the art of change.
Fact is, we weren’t wired for it. But, embracing it, leaning into it, and doing so with a mindset that’s focused on what we can learn and how we can grow is literally the key to living our fullest while finding and maximizing our God-given gifts and talents while also building some new ones!
I know, friend, it is easier said than done! But, in part 2 of this two part conversation on reinvention, my guests demystify a few aspects of personal reinvention and career pivots, and give you lots to think about while also giving you a few new tools to add to your personal tool kit!
THIS WEEK’S GUESTS:
Dana Hilmer and Wendy Perrotti are the co-founders of Camp Reinvention, a global company offering transformational programs, retreats, and community for women who are creating their next act.
Wendy and Dana bring more than 30 years of coaching and training experience to Camp Reinvention and have been featured on hundreds of podcasts, television and radio shows. As a special treat for YOU, they are sharing their e-book “Freedom From What Keeps You Stuck,” for FREE! It’s terrific, and we discuss it in this two part conversation in Episodes 195 and 196. If you missed Episode 195, be sure to go back and listen.
You can also join them in their free “Happy After 50” Facebook group.

REDEFINING SUCCESS: and the relationship between “success” and “why”
THE “SHOULD-ING” TRAP
This week, I tried something new and would love your feedback. Since the conversation with Wendy and Dan ran a bit long, I split it into two episodes 195 and 196 – both of which are available here or wherever you listen to podcasts. I’m hoping this approach will give you a little break to reflect on part one before diving into part two. But most of all, I would love to know what YOU think. So let me know.
My biggest goal, as always, is to bring you great conversation and perspective that serves your interests, is helpful, meets you right where you are, and is a good investment of your time. So please be sure to send me some feedback — on this episode, this trial format, or anything else you think would be beneficial for me to hear to help me create even better content for YOU! I’d really appreciate it.
