Hey there! I’m Christine Stallard. A couple of years ago, I left my career of over 30 years and lost my identity. In rediscovering myself, I learned a lot. Including the fact that entering a new chapter isn’t just about having a financial plan in place. It’s that and so much more. Grab my free resource “5 Retirement Planning Mistakes Women Make” so you don’t make the same mistakes I did!

Just know you’re not alone. I’ve been there, and I know many others that have been there too. It often happens when you’re in a major life transition like leaving your professional or corporate career. You plan for it from a financial perspective, but you have no idea what just happened to you mentally and emotionally. If this is you, know that you don’t have to be there or stay there.

My passion is to help women just like you unlock their potential and gain confidence and clarity to live life by design, with passion and purpose in any chapter. Even if you’re preparing to—or have just closed the door on your professional world.

How do I do that? I take you on a journey of self-discovery to help you discover who you are without limitation, what you really want out of your next chapter in life and how to get there in my Amazon best-selling book “Your Next Chapter. Dream It. Design It. Live It.”

The FREE resource is my gift to you. It’s the first step. Then you can decide if you want to go further. I know you will.

Let’s Get Started

It all starts with mindset.

I love helping professional women in any chapter of life, design a next chapter so they can live a life of passion and purpose by design, not default.

You see friend, I lived in my professional life way beyond its expiration date. I was fed up with the corporate world and the politics that came with my position. I was living my professional life by default because that’s the way I thought it was supposed to be. You know, you went to school, got a job and retired 40 years later. That was the Baby Boomer way.

Then a life transition which included leaving my corporate world, came at me hard. I wasn’t prepared and let me just say that it wasn’t my best “chapter.” I looked for the messages in the mess and found some gems. Now, I am passionate about helping other professional women plan for and manage a life transition some call retirement. In reality, retirement is a transition, not a destination. And, that transition in many cases doesn’t eliminate the desire to contribute, it simply reorients a person’s skills and knowledge. I’ve found that it’s common to work with a financial advisor, but we often neglect the emotional and social aspects of a transition.

Women in transition need a community and the ability to stay connected. They desire to replace their work identity with something equally fulfilling, to establish a healthy, active lifestyle, and to find new meaning and purpose.

You have the ability to be ready to reinvent yourself in any moment. It is this ability that is the greatest gift and greatest asset that you have.

I’m so glad you’re here. It tells me that you’re looking for more and that you believe you were meant for more. I’m here to help you on your journey to a life by design. Let’s start by finding Your Zone of Genius!
