My name is Paula Irene and I am the founder of Refeathering; a community for women over 55 who like me, are on the edge of retirement and feeling trapped
There are a large number of us, who due to circumstances out of our control and/or choices in life who feel “trapped” in situations we feel we cannot control.
Some of us are unemployed and some of us feel marginalized in their current positions, lucky to be gainfully employed but kind of stuck in a limbo where our ideas and thoughts no longer matter to a company increasingly seeking only millennial generation input.
The Refeathering Community is a place for those of us in transition, either laid off from jobs, or trapped in unfulfilling roles. Some of us want to reinvent ourselves rather than try to re-enter a work place that likely no longer values them and some of us just want to find a conventional position where we don’t feel threatened and can work until we feel we are ready to retire.
I believe we can get off this hamster wheel. If you see yourself in this picture, worn to a nub, needing encouragement, but still have enough spunk to lay out a plan for a future….won’t you join me? Let’s grow a new set of feathers. To be part of the Refeathering Facebook Community and my weekly newsletter, please opt in here…..
