A New Venture

New Venture

Living with a chronic illness is always a challenge.  For me, it meant leaving a career that I loved and  retiring at age 55.  I never wanted to retire – thinking I would work forever.  Since then I have been searching for a purpose, or a job that I could do where I didn’t have to worry about  being fired when  I had to call in sick frequently because of a flare-up or a sleepless night or  a job where I would only have to work 1-2 hours at a time and those hours have to be during my “best” times of the day. My first endeavor was starting this blog. Which I enjoy,  but what else can I do?

I decided to learn the art of Life Coaching. I was excited about making this decision, but disappointment set in when it seemed that my options for schooling were not tailored to someone with Fibromyalgia.  The initial programs i researched  were either taught at night ( I am not alert enough at night to drive let alone stay awake) or as marathon 3 day weekend sessions once a month ( I’d be lucky if i made it past the first couple of hours.)  Then I discovered that I could receive the training  once a week over the telephone.

This  is program and profession are a  perfect match for me.  Once I complete the course I can be my own boss and work with clients by phone.  I will be able limit my hours so as not to cause flare-ups of my Fibro.  It meets all of my criteria. for a part-time career that I can be passionate.
