Most jobs don’t go to the most qualified . . . They go to those who know the most about how to get hired.
• Career coaching | Career counseling to discover what you’re meant to do:
The best-kept secret on this planet may be how to manage one’s work life. Plus, most people have no clue about what kinds of jobs they are hardwired to do.
Whether you’re just starting out, mid-career, or approaching retirement, coaching from a former hiring manager and seasoned career professional armed with 17 years of experience and a hefty toolbox will uncover places within you that you’ve never seen and take you to career places you’ve only dreamed of.
• A resume that gets interviews
What passes today as a resume for most job seekers is what hiring managers call a “job obituary” — a dull and boring description of everything they’ve ever done without any clue about how well they did it.
Consequently, because employers don’t have jobs — they have needs, the resumes that get the interviews are focused, marketing tools that contain accomplishment statements that excite the reader and make them want to meet you. That’s what we’ll give you!
• Beyond the resume . . . the search
Most people think job searching is like baseball — you must touch all the bases before you can get home. But it’s really more like an end run in football with 3 effective blockers.
Most resume writers disappear after they deliver your resume. We stay with you and help you develop a search plan that works as well as help you find the hidden jobs.
• Coaching to manage interviews confidently
Some surprises are fun but not in a job interview. Interviewers are constantly changing techniques so you need a coach who is an expert about the kinds of questions you’re going to be asked so you can manage the whole interview with confidence including those unpleasant career potholes you may have encountered with a bad boss.
• Uh oh, now what ?
A wise person said, “How something begins is how it goes on“.
Starting out on a new job for most people is like initiating a dance with their new boss, associates and team members. They start out first at boogie pace then after a while get tired and need to switch to something more like a waltz. The big problem when they switch is, they end up stepping on every body’s toes.
If you have a Life Coach in your corner, you’ll not only start off on the right foot, but at the right tempo. Plus you’ll learn how to use office politics to further your career.
Athletes and executives have them and Ivy League colleges tell their graduates to go out and get one because Life Coaches bring good things to life.
• Act II, reinventing your retirement
Too young to retire? Wonder if you will ever be able to retire? What will the new retirement look like for you? Will it be your last dance or a new song? You may be pleasantly surprised at your “re-wirement” possibilities! There are 76 million U.S. baby boomers approaching retirement and what often passes as retirement planning is financial planning. There is so much more you can learn from Darlene Cook, a Certified Retirement Coach, that will surprise you. She knows because she is currently enjoying “Re-Wirement” in her Second Act.
Something else most people don’t know about are the 5 minimum daily requirements for a healthy retirement needed to prevent REA, Retirement Emotional Anemia.

Are You Lacking Your Minimum Daily Retirement Requirements?
No amounts of broccoli, fruit, yogurt, or grains will replace the five critical requirements necessary for a healthy retirement.
If you have worked most of your life, you have psychological requirements that must be met or you will most likely contract what is commonly known as Emotional Retirement Anemia. You may be unaware of the benefits your years of working brought you that were integral parts of your life that soon became “requirements”. But if you are to live fully in retirement, you must find replacements for them or suffer the consequences. They were:
• Financial Compensation
• Time Management
• Sense of Value to Others
• Status / Self Value
The first is widely recognized as the only requirement for a healthy and successful retirement, so most retirees plan for it. But those who deprive themselves of the other four will undoubtedly contract a debilitating case of Emotional Retirement Anemia or ERA.
Symptoms can be:
• Lack of structure or feeling out of sync with the beat of the culture around you.
• Loss of your feeling of value to others.
• Loss of identity and self worth.
• Feelings of disconnectedness, listlessness or loneliness.
Other symptoms might include: broken springs in your Easy Boy; a spouse who keeps telling you to get a life, cocktail hours beginning at noon, finding yourself unwelcome during your frequent visits to your kids, finding vacation planning as hard as working, or noticing most of your conversations with friends are about what you did in your former life.
Adding the missing daily retirement requirements to your diet is easy and normally produces immediate retirement fulfillment results.
If you think you have contracted ERA, Contact Darlene immediately for help.
