About Age Defying Careers + Why We Exist
How Age Defying Careers Began
A few years ago I began feeling aware of ageism in the workplace (ageism: noun; prejudice or discrimination on the grounds of a person’s age). Would I continue to have the opportunity to work on great projects? Would I be employable? Would the market / potential employers believe that as I aged my skills were no longer relevant?
The job market where I live consists of a few highs and lots of lows. I decided that instead of being at the whims of the job market, I would start my own online coaching business to develop exceptional project managers. The modern rollercoaster ride of initiating my own business, along with the amazing networking that has since followed with professionals from all over the globe has allowed my confidence levels to increase tenfold.
Women – Your Career Is Not Over
I began to help other women lift their own confidence, ignite their passion for their industry once again, and to enhance their relevance to their own market to help them achieve their career goals – as well as to live a happier lifestyle. The more I talked with other women, the more I realised that women over 40 were being neglected with little opportunity for mentoring, internships and career development. There are lots of resources online to help young women, “mumtropenuers”, etc. yet there is little information out there to help women who want to restart their careers, change careers and / or have meaningful careers into their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. This gap in the market inspired me to launch Age Defying Careers to assist women over 40 to be more confident and to find their own personal career success.
Meet Our Founder, Elise Stevens
I believe that internal confidence comes from having the right skills, believing in yourself and wearing clothes that make you feel fantastic. Too often we let ourselves believe other people’s narratives about our own skills and abilities. My goal is to remind you of how valuable you truly are, and to give you a clearer understanding of your career goals so that you ooze confidence – every single day.
My structured approach will unveil your confidence, establish your career goals, and help you to actually achieve them.
