Meet Cheryl A. Garrison
My desire is to help you Re-ignite the Fire in your life and live a life of purpose and excellence. My goal is to help you understand that being 50Something is the beginning. It's the time to reset and build the 50Something Lifestyle of your dreams.
Hi! I'm Cheryl. I'm well over 50Something now (whoa that happened fast) and I've never felt better about life and where I'm taking it. You see, as women, we've spent most of our life letting life take us - to work, to being a wife and mother, to being the end-all of our church and community. Yes, life has taken us and once we reached that magical age of 50 it dropped us off in the middle of nowhere. Now what?
I created 50Something Lifestyle to help you deal with the "now what". I know you are not ready to be done, just because of a layoff or retiring from a job you hated anyway. You're ready to live at the highest level possible because you now have a second chance?
50Something Lifestyle is about helping you create the lifestyle of your dreams now that you have the reigns over the remainder of your life.
50Something Lifestyle's mission and purpose is threefold:
Help women over 50 re-identify or re-invent themselves as women of value.
Create a Smart 50Something Lifestyle of resources to help women over 50 embrace rapid changes in technology.
Inspire and educate women to make authentic decisions regarding their direction as they transition through the second half of their life. Our products and services will aid you in taking quick ACTION to move forward in business, career, and personal development.
Who Am I?
I'm sure you are wondering "Who is this lady and what qualifies her to be here?" First off, I've been there - right where you are.
I know what it's like to give your ALL to a company for many years only to be laid off for no reason anyone can explain.
I know what it's like to take the leap of faith to business ownership and then find yourself so deep in debt that you have to close the doors and put up a big, fat FAILURE sign.
I know what it feels like to raise three incredible children and have that "hole" in your heart as each of them leaves to go and explore the world on their own terms.
I know what it's like to be so afraid of doing anything of substance because you lack confidence or fear that you will fail.
I know what it's like to watch technology continue to evolve while you're still trying to figure out how to post on Facebook.
And, I know what it's like to lose all confidence and self-assurance because you have no idea where you fit in the world anymore.
Good News! I came through it all stronger and more confident and that's why I want to share what I've learned with you.
Good question. I should at least give you a little professional background just in case you are wondering why you should listen to me.
I have been an entrepreneur for over 30 years and have earned nearly one million dollars from my various ventures. As a business owner, I earned numerous Business Excellence awards, Rising Star in my network marketing company, and creator of the Topleaders Business Leadership and Development Training program.
Professionally, I worked for over 15 years as a professional writer in the technology and retail industries. I also managed a team of writers in a large software corporation that specialized in software for the legal industry.
My passion is mentoring women in business and leadership, especially those over 50.
