EVOLVE! (Don't just improve.) Improve means to do something
better. Evolve, however, means that you permanently &
fundamentally change a part of who you are. ~Janice Taylor
Are you evolving at midlife? If so, please tell us what you are doing and we'll consider featuring you in our Voices of Baby Boomer Women blog. Please email us and we'll send you the questionnaire.
If you're interested in evolving, but not sure how to go about it, perhaps membership in the National Association of Baby Boomer Women
is for you. Receiving this newsletter does not necessarily mean you're
a member. There's often confusion about this. Membership in the NABBW
is much more involved and offers many more benefits than a monthly
newsletter. We offer:
- A membership package
that includes information on self-improvement skills, free legal and
financial advice using e-mail, an annual FREE subscription to More
Magazine, exclusive member discounts on a variety of products and
services, easy ways to connect with other boomer women, and MORE.
- A sense of belonging to a creative, powerful, encouraging group of women that will leave you feeling refreshed, revived, and renewed.
I don't have anything to wear! I
found myself saying this last Friday when the temperatures quickly
changed and I couldn't run out the door in my sandals and shorts.
Please join us if you are having trouble thinking about your
fall/winter wardrobe. Sherrie Mathieson, a costume designer for film and TV for 28 years, and who has "costumed" celebrity clients such as Susan Sarandon and Brooke Shields
will guide us through the maze of the fashion world, offering tips and
advice on how baby boomer women can be natural and feminine, yet avoid
certain fashion traps. Register here.
- Access to information
from an enthusiastic, energetic, wise, and warm panel of experts who
have written books, founded Web sites, and coached women on a variety
of topics. Go here to learn more.
a midlife woman isn't always an easy task and it may feel like
everything is in an uproar, from our bodies to our kids leaving for
college or pursuing their own lives, our parents aging to little (or
BIG) voices asking "is this all there is?" And in the midst of it all,
what YOU want out of life may be buried under a pile of "shoulds" and
"oughtas" imposed from others. In fact, you, like so many of us, are
probably standing at the intersection of "Same 'Ole Same 'Ole Road" and
"What's Next Lane!"
My friend, MamaRed
(a midlifer facing many of these challenges) created a group coaching
program to help women find their way through all these changes. Her
program "Transform Your Kick-in-the-Butt into a Kick-Butt Life",
focuses on specific tools and techniques for prioritizing the many
things that tug at our sleeves and create a life that suits you...one
baby step, or one big leap, at a time. She has invited all our friends
here to listen in to a no-cost preview call so you can experience what she does and how she works.

Janice Taylor . . .
Q: How can you lead a life you love if you are only half-baked?
A: You can't, get fully baked!
is the contemporary voice of reinvention and transformation, a
best-selling author, personal coach, guided imagery innovator, speaker
and teacher who provides women with the information, inspiration, and
tools they need to move from half-baked to fully-baked,
from living a life of compromise to lives they love. She's worked with
thousands of individuals worldwide, helping them to uncover their
authentic selves and to learn to create balance and success in their
personal and professional lives.
After a successful corporate
career for two decades, Janice left her position to reinvent, rewire,
and revitalize her life ... and that she surely did! Against all odds,
Janice has written two best-selling self-help books, Our Lady of Weight Loss and All Is Forgiven, Move On. She's the creator of the Kick in the Tush Club,
which has generated over 14,000 members, and she has established
herself as one of the country's leading Life & Wellness Coaches and
Weight Loss Experts.
to share a bit of my journey with you, as well as my
philosophy. Eight years ago, after a lifetime of yo-yo dieting, I set off
on the road to Sveltesville and permanently removed over 50 pounds. I say 'permanently removed' vs. 'lost
50 pounds,' because it is abundantly clear to me, based on my own experiences
and ... well ... yours - that when one loses weight, they are likely to find it!
What I learned in spades is that 'this' ('this' meaning
whatever your goal) is a holistic event. Just as 'weight loss' does not solely
live in the food/exercise slice of your "Deep Dish Life Pie," neither does
career change, relationship issues, or anything else for that matter. (see Fill Up on Happiness for your 'free' Deep Dish Life Pie)
Whether our goals are about our weight, careers
or relationships - we must first, in our mind's eye, float high into the sky,
find an inviting puffy cloud to light on and from this unique perch, look down
upon our lives, giving us a clear and broad view. A new holistic perspective.
For example, let's look at manifesting a new career. You land the job of a lifetime. How does that affect your finances?
Relationships? Physical environment? Health? Fun? Creativity? Spirituality? All aspects of life flow
and move and interact with the other. Career does not live alone.
Health does not live alone. Love does not live alone.
What we all seek is increased energy and happiness. It is imperative that we set our
'upward spiral' in motion. It
actually matters not where we start, as long as we do start!
While my 'claim to fame' may be that I've permanently
removed over 50 pounds, and I am an considered by many (Good Housekeeping,
Health & Fitness magazines) as an expert in the field of weight loss, I can
tell you with certainty that 'weight loss' was merely my starting point. What I was really after was complete
reinvention and transformation.
When I work with people who want to lose weight, we work on
multiple levels, looking at all aspects of their
lives. Similarly, when I work with people who want to change
their careers, strengthen their relationships or even move past 'fear of
flying,' we again take in a deep breath, roll up our sleeves and delve into
Which brings me to my philosophy in a
(Don't just improve.) Improve
means to do something better. Evolve, however, means that you
permanently and fundamentally change a part of who you are."
If you are interested in evolving, not just
improving - if you are interested in permanent change- if you are interested in
moving toward your compelling future - if you are interested in reinvention and
transformation on any and all levels, then I invite NABBW members to contact me
for a free coaching consult!
My next workshop, "Weight Loss Warrior: Strong. Focused.
Determined." is scheduled for October 18, at Wainwright House, Rye, NY. Please sign up! (Confidentially, it's
more about being strong, focused and determined than weight loss tips!)
