Shifting to a New Career after 50

Thinking about changing your career in mid-life? Many Baby Boomers are doing this, and have found greater joy and meaning in their lives after making the leap to try something different, yet still keep up with paying their bills. I just read an interesting article written by Kerry Hannon, author and regular contributor in Forbes.com. She discusses her new book, Great Jobs for Everyone 50+: Finding Work That Keeps You Happy and Healthy … And Pays the Bills, a guide to finding financial security as well as personal and professional fulfillment.  She offers a financial checklist to consider before changing to an “Encore Career.”
