Second Breaks’ mission is to help you thrive in your career – no matter if it’s your second, third, or fourth one – for as long as you want to work it!

Let’s face it. For Gen Xers and Boomers, navigating this changing world and knowing what to do with the future of work is interesting, at best 😉. We have the ‘givens’ we grew up with that we need to unlearn because they don’t apply anymore. Replacing those are the new ways of working, of communicating, and of showing up that we have to embrace.

The good news is we are not wanting for information. In fact, we’re drowning in it.

That’s where you can rely on Second Breaks.

Through the newsletter and the podcast, Second Breaks delivers curated resources, the latest thinking, and modern strategies for working and thriving in the 21st century. To help you figure out what’s best for you and make the right decisions for your career.



Hello. I’m the curator and editor of the weekly newsletter, Second Breaks, and the host of the podcast of the same name.

Being among the oldest of the Gen Xers, I’m one of those who’s been around the block a few times and have worn many hats in my professional life. While I did enjoy climbing the corporate ladder for many years, this project has brought me immense joy and fulfillment in so many different ways. Which just goes to show, we’re never too old to reinvent ourselves.

My hope is that through Second Breaks, you’ll discover the path to your next chapter, whatever that may be, and the resources to help you pursue that which makes you feel fulfilled.

One of my favorite quotes is by Jane Goodall: “What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

Here’s to making your kind of difference,
