Sieze The Day…Live Life Your Way!
Boomers Next Step encourages Baby Boomers to live their lives the way they want to live it, with purpose, fulfilment and fun, choosing their lifestyle and activities according to their own unique way of thinking and being.
Our goal is to help people sing the song that is in their heart, then let the whole world hear it.
This is reflected in the tag line Seize The Day…Live Life Your Way!
We provide regular blog posts, a supportive community via Facebook and email, and offer related products and programs for sale.
Boomers Next Step acknowledges the many directions that each person can take in their lives, empowering and exciting directions, according to the stage of life that they are currently experiencing.
The site covers the broad headings of careers, lifestyle and travel, offering genuine professional career assistance peppered with a good smattering of lifestyle and travel posts.
CAREERS are looked at from many different perspectives:
- Turning entrepreneurial dreams into reality, quickly and with confidence
- Developing an online business and creating a Laptop Lifestyle, so you can live the "retirement" life you want but with an economic purpose providing additional stimulation
- Traditional careers: job search, resumes, interviews and age discrimination against older workers.
LIFESTYLE is a broad topic covering
- Planning for a retirement lifestyle that is ideal for you (and ideal for your partner, which can be challenging!)
- Enjoying life to the full….travel, "toys", music, books etc
Boomers Next Step also leads clients to the different services that are offered through Clarity Connections Pty Ltd.

Many people consider and discuss their holiday after retirement in far more detail, and with more energy, than the remaining years of their life. Therefore it is not surprising that many individuals and couples find that retirement is a disappointment to them. They have the time to do the things they want to do, but perhaps don't have the money or actually don't know what it is that they want to do.
It can be very beneficial to spend some time prior to retirement deciding how you want to live your life. Contact me directly if you would like some assistance in this important aspect of planning for your retirement.
Boomers Next Steps' History
BoomersNextStep was purchased by Clarity Connections Pty Ltd in 2013, and had been created and developed initially by Bill Vick, a well respected career and recruitment strategist from USA. I would like to acknowledge the outstanding work he put into this site, the excellent content he developed and the great interviews he conducted, all still highly valued posts on this site.
I now own and manage the site. In the early 1990's I assisted my husband through a turbulent career change, and this gave me a great interest in career change and career development. I then underwent my own complete career transition, from teacher librarian to career professional, doing a Master of Career Development whilst working full time, with three teenagers at home. Yes, I now acknowledge that was fairly mad!
I won national awards in career education area early in my career, but then developed a special interest in assisting older workers to recognise how they can make the most of their lifetime of experiences and skills, love their work and enjoy life.
I’m a proud mother of three great young adults, and the unashamedly besotted Nanna to two darling little girls. David and I have bucked the usual trend and have been married since 1980, having met whilst travelling in Europe. I believe if you can travel with someone you can get through most dramas in life together! David has thoughts that he might get involved with this site and tell you all about sailing and kayaking when he retires, but not for the next year or so.
INTERVIEWS: Many fascinating people have been interviewed for this site over the last 5 years. If your business or experience is related to Baby Boomers' Careers and Lifestyle, and you would like to be interviewed, I'd love to hear from you.
