The vast majority of women will lose a spouse and/or a parent. This segment prepares them for the mindset as well as the legal/financial aspect of that life experience. To better understand grief, caregiving challenges, and the legal documents you need to have in place before you need them, listen in to learn and get motivated for your family’s benefit.
Transition & Thrive with María offers career & life coaching and consulting services to help women navigate through the chaos that can erupt when life suddenly changes. The “5 Petals of Power” program provides tools and strategies that clients can learn and adapt to their unique circumstances.
These tested techniques have inspired many women to put the pieces of their lives back together again in a new way.
Life will continue to happen. When women learn how to handle these events in empowering ways, they will be prepared for anything life throws at them in the future. It’s how they step back into their power.
Life can turn someone upside down without warning, at the most inopportune times. It could be a divorce, loss of a loved one, or an unexpected layoff.
Navigating the change that comes with those major life events can cause them to question who they are now that things have changed, and where they are headed next. Helping women turn their world right-side up again is a specialty of María Tomás-Keegan.
She is a certified career & life coach, specializing in transitions. She is an award-winning author of “Upside Down to Right Side Up: Turning Transition into Triumph” and producer and host of an international video podcast called “Tips for the Transition,” in which she has conversations with inspiring women about their own upside-down moments and the lessons they learned that will help others know they are not alone.
