Join Lynne M. Williams, BS, MA, ABD, Director of the Philadelphia Area Great Careers Group for this stirring, thought-provoking and motivational session on the topic of “50 and Over Now What?
Lynne will share her story of hope, how to start over again, and where to find free and inexpensive resources. She will tell you how she learned to make lemonade from the lemons handed to her - divorce, fire, job loss, and more (yes there is some juicy stuff)! Lynne now volunteers to help empower others and will endeavor to send you home with these takeaways:

• A little inspiration! … Who doesn’t need that?
• Oh the places you will go … the A-Z guide for free and inexpensive resources
• Ideas on how to market yourself, other than the usual culprits
• The story of relationships … courting (consulting / 1099) vs. the marriage proposal (the W-2)
• Interactive Passion Test … quick, down, and not really dirty!
• Accountability … oh yes you can!
