I’ve been featured in an article entitled Career Shift: Turn Your Hobby Into a New Job at nextavenue which is a collaborative media platform by media partners PBS, American Public Television, National Educational Telecommunications Association, and Huffington Post.

I was interview a few weeks ago by Nancy Collamer, a career coach, speaker and author of Second-Act Careers: 50+ Ways to Profit From Your Passions During Semi-Retirement. You can learn more about Nancy at her website is MyLifestyleCareer.com.

The opportunity to share my “second life” career path is an honor and in the article you’ll learn how after my last firm went bankrupt, I was able to transform my hobby of genealogy into a profession. In addition, from what the author has told me, this article will be carried on Forbes.com early next week.

Stay tuned!
