Encore Careers: Finding Work that Matters in the Second Half of Life
As the pandemic progresses, we continue to see massive corporate layoffs with millions unemployed. With zero job and income security, 40+ workers are getting hit the hardest.
Against this backdrop, more and more people are looking at life (at 40+) as a time to explore new opportunities — to embark on “encore” or second careers that are as much about doing good as they are about making a living. Wikipedia defines an encore career as “work in the second half of life that combines continued income, greater personal meaning, and social impact.”
If you’d like to leverage the professional and interpersonal skills you’ve gained during your first career to help others during your “next stage,” business ownership may a great option to consider – it can offer you life/ work flexibility, income security and the chance to make a meaningful impact.
In this online workshop with best selling author and acclaimed franchise consultant Faizun Kamal, you will discover:
- Why business ownership continues to be a proven approach to escape the 9-5 rat race, create real wealth & live life on your terms
- 6 reasons why now is the right time to start a business
- Why aligning your passion, skills & purpose is the key to a sustainable & successful encore career
- The 6-step proven process to find the best business opportunity for you
… and much more!
If you want to control your career destiny, you owe it to yourself to tune in for this webinar. Faizun will give you the knowledge you need to chart your career change in 2021!
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Faizun Kamal is a nationally renowned public speaker, best selling author and sought-after career strategist. As CEO of The Franchise Pros, Faizun coaches people nationwide on making the transition from employee to entrepreneur. Her unique style of inspirational coaching coupled with swift doses of tough love encourages clients to embrace chaos, fear, insecurity and uncertainty as doorways of opportunity. She has helped individuals find their “perfect fit” franchise based on an assessment of their personal, lifestyle and income goals. She guides clients to proactively move beyond career burnout to build a sustainable career that they love!
Faizun’s drive to create significant life changes through entrepreneurship stems from her own personal experience as a corporate refugee. As an executive in the high-stakes, high-stress world of corporate America, she found herself living an increasingly unhealthy, unbalanced life with little time for what she really loved to do, with loved ones. In 2015, after almost a decade in corporate America, she got her break by getting laid off. Instead of immediately jumping back, Faizun began a deeply introspective journey to intentionally redesign her career, and her life.
Faizun received her BA in Women’s Studies and Environmental Studies from Mount Holyoke College. She holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy and a Master’s in Business Administration from the Johns Hopkins University. She is also a graduate of Stanford University’s acclaimed Social Entrepreneurship Program.
Conversant in multiple languages, Kamal has been described as the “consummate connector”. Coming from an unusual mix of work background (The Franchise Pros, World Bank, Johns Hopkins University and Verizon) and life experiences (growing up in Asia and Africa), she is able to see patterns in seemingly unconnected things and forge connections in the most unlikely places.
