Living Boldly: International Journey of Discovery, Adventure, and Lifelong Learning

Emily Rubin

In the ever-evolving journey of life, finding freedom and purpose beyond the age of 50 can seem like a daunting task. Yet, it’s a challenge that many embrace with open arms, seeking to reinvent themselves in ways that bring joy, fulfillment, and a sense of achievement.

This transformational voyage is beautifully encapsulated in the experiences of a certified professional life coach who has dedicated her career to helping individuals navigate the delicate nuances of major life transitions. Through a powerful conversation, she shares insights into her own path of self-discovery, the essence of her coaching philosophy, and the impact it has had on her clients’ lives.

A Life Coach’s Mission to Empower:

With over 16 years of experience, this life coach has sculpted a career centered around empowering primarily women in their fifties and beyond who find themselves at life’s crossroads. Be it a career change, the onset of retirement, or the pursuit of unfulfilled dreams, her coaching is characterized by a compassionate yet direct approach, helping clients to forge a path towards their goals with clarity and confidence.

The International Journey of Reinvention:

Her own journey is a testament to the power of reinvention. Despite a successful career in public relations and marketing, a sense of fulfillment eluded her until a personal quest for meaning led her to return to school in her forties. It was here that she found her calling in life coaching—a profession that married her desire to assist others on an individual level with her knack for asking thought-provoking questions and listening intently. Her approach has been transformative for her clients, guiding them through personal milestones with a blend of accountability, encouragement, and strategic goal-setting.

Impactful Moments:

One particularly poignant story shared during the conversation was that of a client living in China who dreamed of teaching English to children. Through their coaching sessions, the client was able to actualize this dream, eventually opening her own successful teaching program. Such stories underscore the life-altering impact of dedicated coaching and serve as a beacon of inspiration for anyone standing at the precipice of change, hesitant to take the leap.

Exploring New Horizons – Life in Oaxaca:

The conversation also ventures into a personal narrative of relocating part-time to Oaxaca, Mexico—a move inspired by years of visits and a deep connection to the city’s rich artistic and cultural fabric. This life coach’s experiences in adapting to a foreign culture, including the joys and challenges of immersion, provide valuable insights for those considering a similar path. It illustrates that, with curiosity and open-heartedness, finding a place that resonates with one’s soul is possible at any stage of life.

Wisdom for Aspiring Retirees:

For those contemplating retirement or a move abroad, her advice is clear: explore, connect with communities, and approach each experience as an opportunity for growth. Embracing both the possibilities and uncertainties of a new life chapter requires patience and courage but is instrumental in discovering personal freedom and purpose.

Looking to the Future:

As she looks ahead, her vision for the future is one of continued exploration, both geographically and in her professional endeavors. With plans to launch a virtual coaching group, she aims to foster a vibrant community where women can share experiences, challenges, and triumphs as they navigate the journey of reinvention together.

This conversation serves as a powerful reminder that life after 50 can be a period of dynamic growth, new beginnings, and profound self-discovery. With the right mindset and support, the years following mid-life are ripe with opportunities for personal and professional fulfillment—a message that is both uplifting and deeply resonant.
