About Boomers Next Step
Many people of the baby boomer generation reach retirement age without adequate savings and no additional income to rely on, despite a lifetime of working.
BoomersNextStep encourages our readers to consider ways in which they can boost their income whilst still enjoying a great lifestyle.
We offer resources to assist our readers to get employment if that is their choice, and introduce them to the opportunities available using online business skills and strategies if they are attracted to a laptop lifestyle.
We can help you design the life you want then realistically work towards creating it.
I am a Brisbane based career consultant who specializes in assisting older workers and people making a transition from work to their next phase of life.
In the early 1990’s I assisted my husband David through a turbulent career change, and this fueled my life long interest in career change and career development. I then underwent my own complete career transition, from teacher librarian to career professional, doing a Master of Career Development whilst working full time with three teenagers still in high school. Yes, I now acknowledge that was fairly mad!
It was also very fulfilling and opened a whole new world to me.
I won national awards in Career Education early in my new career, and then developed a special interest in assisting older workers to recognise how they can make the most of their lifetime of experiences and skills, love their work and enjoy life. Career counselling and coaching became my profession but when I became self-employed I also needed to learn all about online marketing strategies, which I found fascinating.
David and I have bucked the usual trend and have been married since 1980, having met whilst travelling in Europe. I believe if you can travel with someone you can get through most dramas in life together!
We are the proud parents of three great young adults and delight in our role as Nanna and Poppy to four wonderful little girls.
Boomers’ Next Step History
BoomersNextStep.com was created and developed by Bill Vick, a well respected career and recruitment strategist from USA. I would like to acknowledge the outstanding work he put into this site, the excellent content he developed and the great interviews he conducted, all still highly valued posts on this site.
I purchased the site in 2013, maintaining it as a US based site until our site was redeveloped and launched as an Australian site in February 2019. I hope you find it interesting and helpful.
