Audrey Guth: Switching careers in midlife

Episode Summary

When Audrey Guth was 50 years old, she was diagnosed with cancer. This inspired her to shortly after create a new non-for-profit organization. As the operator of a personnel agency which specialized in home care and nanny services, she felt uniquely positioned to help mothers undergoing the heavy demands of cancer treatments. By having this purpose, she felt that it helped her get better as well. Switching careers at any point in your life can be hard, but doing it in midlife can come with extra challenges. At a time when many women are seeking a way to reinvent themselves, Audrey's story is a powerful message for midlife women that it is never too late to learn something new and to feel that you are making a difference in the world.
