to find a life coach?
It is not
difficult to have a personal makeover if you
Moving on after a divorce can be a terrifying feeling, particularly for a woman who did not have a professional career for years. However, if she takes one step at a time and starts with a well-organized plan, she can achieve her dreams.
divorced recently after being married for 22 years. She raised two wonderful kids but her husband left her for
a younger woman. Being a mom and
housewife, Carla did not pursue a professional job for almost 18 years. Now she has to find a way to earn a living and with all the challenges of being a
woman in her 40s
and in the current job market in the United States being so
dull, she is facing some challenges. But she is not giving up,
since she has a plan in place. I have been helping her for a
while finding her way around.

a job, but I am still actively
involved in trying to find a good one.
I may have to go to school full time
and finish my bachelors degree in
about 3 years. I have decided that I
will do that but I first need to do a
few things before I do that. I am
looking into going to Brigham Young
University which has a very
competitive professional program for
pre-dentistry. I would like to be as
competitive as possible so I have been

weight. I am wondering if you
might know of a good
life coach I
could go to
brush up on my image and
help me with a
makeover? I would have to go
through a rigorous interview process
before being admitted into the program
and would like to have someone to
practice with and learn from. I have
excellent grades and several academic
and service awards, so I don't think
that would be a concern to getting in.
I just want to be as polished as
possible. I think during my marriage,

Carla. As long as you understand where you want to go and how to get there, getting there is
simply a process. That is why a personal makeover is a great idea. Trends and styles change over time and it is important to keep up with them. And believe it or not, corporate America has changed completely during last two decades.
From the days of looking serious to the crazy days of dot-com years and now back to the times when it is
OK to be a
woman at work. Therefore, it is not that you will find it impossible to find your way back in the professional world; it is just that you need to get ready
Based on your situation, I see that you may need help in following areas:
Personal image improvement (which typically involves all the things like clothing,
style, posture, speaking style, gestures, etc.).
Personality improvement, which will include things like showing more confidence and charm in how you come across.
Spiritual makeover. This involves feeling good about oneself and developing inner peace. Once you do that it comes out and you will come across as someone who is smart, charming, confident, and ready to conquer the world.
It is relatively easy to find an
image consultant and/or a life coach to help you with all of these. Of course, you can get a lot of useful and free help from your hairdresser, a personal shopper at a department store, and from watching television programs like The Look For Less, What Not To Wear, Look 10 Years Younger, and Queer Eye For The Straight Girl. To find the right coach for you, make sure that you interview the person, or even better, find her or him through someone you know and trust.
