Take Your Next Best Step


Wondering What’s Next? You’re not alone . . .

Guest Blogger, Beverly Berner, Mid-Life Coach & StrategistNextBestStep

Many of us who were born in the late 40’s, 50’s and early 60’s are gradually moving into a new (and different) phase of our lives. We are no longer at the beginning of our career and many of us find we are ready to take our best next step.

By this time most of us have enjoyed at least some degree of professional success. We have had careers and positions we really loved — and most likely a few . . . well, maybe not so much. By this age, most of the kids are grown and (hopefully) launched. It’s a whole new world out there and we are looking at it from a different vantage point. For many of us, this is the first time we have had the luxury of time and energy to really think about what that best next step will be.

Perhaps it’s time for you to think about what would make the next phase of your life rewarding, enriching, even fun! As a professional coach, I would like to encourage you to be “self-full”. Being “self-full” is not the same as being “selfish”.  When someone is selfish, it usually means someone else will suffer.  By being “self-full” you are simply allowing yourself to take a good look at the years that have passed and do some deep self-reflection on what makes you happy and fulfilled vs. what drains energy from you. Now is the time to to “take your next best step” and use that information to help you make a plan for the future.

If you would like more information about ways to be more “self-full” and discover ways to take your best next step, please visit the Act 2 website ( or contact me at 314-477-6800 or  Best wishes for taking your best next step!  ~ Bev
