@dosey- Just wondering if you can share any tips for re-entering the workforce. I've been a SAHM for almost as long as you and I've applied for a few things and I think they see the lapse in work experience and that's the end. I did customer service and other clerical work for 20 years before I became stayed home with my daughter. I'm now looking for any kind of entry level position, even retail which I was never crazy about. I'm inspired by your story!

I admire you. Big changes are exciting, and they require guts and planning. You obviously have both!!! After successful careers, both my husband and I made a big decision at 53 that we would quit at age 55, and we started building our new house in a new locale. We did it! We quit, we moved, and we never looked back. A bold move, whatever it may be, can bring new energy and confidence. You must be flying high with your new accomplishments. Wow. Impressive.

I know many. I've toyed with the idea of working part-time but changing my focus within my field which means returning to college. I'm 52 and it never occured to me to not do it. My issue is time as I take care of son full-time so it will mean following a very specific schedule but still, it can be done.
Go for it!!!!!

Congratulations @NativeJax. You sound very excited about this new opportunity and I'm sure it will meet all your expectations!
I did a "180" when I was slightly younger, took a huge salary cut (which I was most nervous about), but it has paid off ten-fold in enjoyment and unparalleled benefits.
