Wednesday, May 9th, Coloradoan columnist Katy Piotrowski, presented "Encore Careers".     Starting with Bridges model of transitions, she talked about the three phases - Letting Go of the past; the Neutral Zone; and the New Beginnings.  She noted that the Neutral Zone, when things feel the most unstable and vulnerable, is also the most creative period.  She suggested journalling, considering your "super power", and 'experimenting' as helpful practices.
Piotrowski also listed many examples of people who have changed careers completely, from lawyer to call center employee, state official to entrepreneur, finance executive to craftsman, etc.
