Welcome to Building Better Relationships at Home and Work with Angela and Patti.
We have a special guest on this podcast episode, Rebecca Ronane, Life Coach, Podcaster, and Author.
Rebecca Ronane moved from London to a small village in Provence, France, in 1995. She lives with her partner Alain and their dog Myrtle. She worked in the travel industry for thirty years; however, a breast cancer diagnosis quickly followed by a job loss in 2012 allowed her to change direction, although she didn’t feel it then.
A coaching course in 2014 opened the door to a different chapter in her life journey. Since training as a coach, she has set up her businesses, Forward After Fifty and Network Provence. As a result, she has two websites, two podcast shows, and not one but several businesses to her name. She has experienced that moving forward after fifty has the potential to be the most exciting part of your life.
A suggestion in 2021 that Rebecca writes a book was a little like looking down on someone else’s life and ambitions, as it had never been on her agenda. The book was published in January of 2023 and is called Forward After 50: The Rising Reinventors. The book gives insights into how we might limit ourselves in thinking and talking about aging. It’s about changing your mindset around aging today – start associating aging with generating instead of degenerating.
