The Back Forty Big Game Coaching Session - $197
This deep-dive, 90-minute session is all about the Big Game you're now ready to play in your second half/best half of life. The Back Forty philosophy says that your first half was all simply R & D, research and development, to direct you to what you came here to do and be. Your playful, passionate and purposeful Back Forty begins when you take on the radical notion that it was all perfectly designed to have you be right where you are now, with the conditions exactly as they are, so as to fulfill on the unique purpose you came for. This is your time to go BIG!
You will be able to:
The Back Forty INFUSE Program - $997
Imagine there is way more in you to be expressed and fulfilled.
Imagine and believe that you can restart...or, better yet, really start for the first time!
Consider that the only start that matters is the one you do now, and that life was actually designed that way. Your midlife opportunity is awakening to discover all that you've learned from a first half of R & D (research and development) and capitalizing on it to realize your own uniquely playful, passionate and purposeful second half.
You have yet to do what you came here to do. No matter what has come before -- be it perceived major successes or miserable failures -- as Frank Sinatra sings "The best is yet to come, and babe won't it be fine".
The Back Forty idea is radical. It says that whatever has come before does not determine what comes next. It's about a radical renewing of the mind into belief and action that have you play big. Come discover your Big Game Back Forty Future. It's what you came for.
The Back Forty Re-NEW-ALL - $997
Life is chocked full of transitions...both the ones we consciously choose as well as those that hit us like a bag of bricks.
Learning a life transition strategy before the inevitable occurs--or at least now, if it already has--can ensure that everything coming at you gets transformed from lemons into GOLD (forget the lemonade).
Whether it's a relationship shift, a career shift, a health shift, a financial shift, a family shift or any other kind of shift, one thing we know is, as life moves forward, shift happens.
Become adaptable and welcoming of change -- a shift master and transition expert -- so that you can continue to grow bolder and better, not older and fretter.
Develop an attitude of openness to NEW to move you up and out of any old (patterns, habits, relationships, issues, or challenges) you may be experiencing.
A change-based mindset and strategy allows for you to play Big Games again, or for the first time.
Through 5 Modules, 90 minutes of insightful content, and engaging, downloadable Homeplay exercises, you'll be able to take any slings and arrows life has dealt you and come out bolder and better...becoming who you came in this lifetime to be to do what you came in this lifetime to do.

Crisis or Opportunity
This midlife-lemons-to-lemonade edition of the Career Planning & Adult Development Journal is a “love of labor” experience as the participants herein have shared the unfoldment of their higher expressions of career even in the face of (or because of?) the challenges of midlife.
This journal is a compilation of stories offering hope and inspiration to demonstrate that the adversities of life in general, and midlife career in particular, are often the catalyst to the greater role we are here to play.
I invite you to be inspired, moved, healed, motivated, recognized, and appreciated for all of your own overcoming of adversity as you share the experiences of these seven authors. Each expresses powerfully and vulnerably their own unique version of the trials and tribulations we face as we follow from deep within—and often unwittingly—our own urge to emerge into our greater yet to be.
A common theme throughout these stories is the growth outward from within of those truest desires, fascinations, and joyful Self-expressions that only get tapped into when the surface life of comfort and convenience gets wracked by the wrecking ball of midlife challenge. The underlying message is that there are goodies on the other side of what we call “midlife crisis” …if we but listen and learn. Enjoy! Share the inspiration! And be empowered to help transform the cultural myth of “midlife crisis” to that of “midlife opportunity.”
