Another way of looking at your second-act career is to think of it as what financial planner Justin Smith calls a “Victory Lap.”
After establishing your expertise and building a career, you’re at (or should be at) the point where you can acknowledge your value and put it to optimal use. It’s no longer about striving to get to the top. Now it’s about sharing that expertise, delivering that value, and paying it forward as a mentor and a guide.
In this week’s Second-Act Show, we explore the concept of the Victory Lap and look at ways older workers can define their second-act careers as opportunities to celebrate their achievements and leave lasting legacies.
