Inspiring stories from international ladies.
Introducing Rebecca Ronane.
Rebecca is full of energy, ideas and radiates with enthusiasm and positivity, which is rather contagious. A multi-tasking Aries who after an exciting and glamorous career as an international travel and tour director, found herself having to deal with two terrible shocks in her mid fifties. The first one was a health issue, which was a challenging experience, and the second was unexpectedly loosing her job.
These are the type of experiences that could easily throw one into a depression, but luckily after talking things over with a friend, Rebecca decided to turn her situation around and ”re-invent” herself.
After starting with an online T.E.F.L. (teaching english as a foreign language) course, a friend introduced her by a chance conversation to life coaching. Once again Rebecca studied an online course and discovered she had found a new passion. She extended her studies to gain diplomas and become a fully qualified life coach herself, meeting inspiring mentors along the way.
Rebecca chose to orientate her coaching sessions towards the fifty plus age group and her movement “Forward after fifty” was born. Ladies are offered the choice of individual coaching sessions online via Skype, group coaching sessions that take place regularly in Aix en Provence or holiday retreats where she combines her previous experience in travel and tours with her life coaching.
In Rebecca’s re-invention timeline one thing led to another and after discovering that making contacts and self promotion were far from simple in rural Provence, this enterprising lady created the website “Network Provence” which has exploded with popularity and continues to do so. It now counts over 491 members on it’s Facebook page plus 25 other members, who use the platform to self promote their businesses, make contacts and to socialize.
I have been to one of Rebecca’s life coaching sessions and I will definitely go again. I found it inspirational and refreshing, learning new coping skills that help to navigate through this complex journey we call life.
Rebecca demonstrates that life and opportunities are perhaps only just beginning in your fifties and she gives us a tremendous example of how unfortunate situations can be turned around into opportunities and if you are brave enough to try, by taking one step at a time, and you receive support and encouragement, you have the power and capabilities to change the path of your life.
Contact Rebecca for life coaching at www.rebeccaronane.com and at www.networkprovence for her network meetings.
I would like to thank Rebecca for generously sharing her inspiring story and take this opportunity to wish her all the best for the future.
