To Thrive in a Changing World
We live in amazing times. With dizzying speed, exponential technologies are creating a world we can’t even imagine.
More than ever, we have the opportunity to usher in better futures for ourselves.
But only if we act and work on it today.
Because if we don’t — if we pass up the chance to take the driver’s seat and direct our careers now — the future will show up and we may very well see ourselves shocked. And unprepared. And with regret.
Second Breaks’ mission is to help you stay relevant in a changing world, create opportunities, and make smart, brave moves.
Hello. My name is Lou Blaser. I’m the host and producer of Second Breaks. I’m also the founder of AndThriving, a professional network for Gen Xer’s and Younger Boomers who continue to want to make their impact in a changing world.
My career has always been about ushering in and implementing change. It started out in the corporate world, by helping leaders create the kind of business and organizational improvements they want or need to see. Since 2014, I’ve turned my attention to helping individuals navigate a changing world and create the future they want through smart — and brave — career moves.
I have always believed that in a world like ours, we all should have the ability to grow and thrive in our work. And 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 you making your kind of difference,
Some people said nice things about me. I didn’t pay them.
Lou has been an amazing advisor throughout my career profession and evolution. I most appreciate her direct, ‘no sugar-coating’ advice with the sole purpose of helping you push yourself and succeed in ways you never imagined for yourself. Having Lou as a champion as I took a leap into a radically different phase in my professional career has meant the world to me. —G. Ramirez-Elyea
