Each month, I hold a virtual event that will help you move forward in your career. Whether it’s a Campfire Conversation where I’ll answer your most pressing career questions (and maybe do a bit of coaching), or an interview with an expert, or an hour of speed networking over webcam, these events will provide not just knowledge, but tools and connections to others. Our biggest dreams are achieved by moving into action, with others.
Join me for honest conversation, sage advice (okay, I’m not ancient, but I have been around the block a few times), and maybe even a few tall tales. I’m looking forward to our “virtual campfire” where I’ll answer your career questions for a full hour.

For December’s Campfire Conversation, we’ll start the hour by exploring Six Questions for the New Year. Get ready to pause from the daily grind, reflect on 2013, and plan for a fabulous 2014!
The first word that comes to mind when I think of past meetups is FUN, followed by CONNECTION. How could it be otherwise when so many “crazy brilliant” people gather in one place?
As I’ve done in the past, if you travel from another state to attend the meetup, lunch is on me. Seating is limited, so register soon to get a place at the table.
Until recently, most Americans equated the end of a successful career with the beginning of retirement. No more. Now they want to stay in the game (or better, change the game). Marci Alboher is a leading authority on the changing face of work and a Vice President at Encore.org, a nonprofit making it easier for millions of people to pursue second acts for the greater good. Learn to strike a balance between doing good and doing well–in a way that will sustain you through this new stage of life.
Marci and I had a lively discussion about her new book, The Encore Career Handbook: How to Make a Living and a Difference in the Second Half of Life. Chock full of useful tips, you’ll also hear an offer for helping you transition into your own encore career at the end of the hour.
