What do you do and why do you do it?

I help women in their 50’s Aim High

I am a Mental Rebrand Strategist.  I help women reacquaint themselves with the core of who they are at their BEST. I then teach them the mental tools that will help them make hard changes. With the knowledge of who they are, and the tools for making change, a new confidence emerges. We are now ready to relaunch them; whether for a job promotion, for a career pivot, for a transition from being an at-home mom or full-time caregiver back into the workforce, for writing a book or for starting a business. 

This is incredibly important work to me. When I turned 50, I felt so GOOD.  I was a business infant.  I had, and still have, SO MUCH to learn, to offer, and to do. I know that my impact will be greater in the second half of my life than in the first.  I want every woman to have the chance to feel like this; youthful exuberance for the work they are doing or the lives they are leading.  When I turned 50 I also heard “This is when you become invisible”.  I was stunned. Covid-19 exacerbated this as millions of women stepped out of the workforce to help care for families and then found themselves in a seemingly impossible position of having to interview for work, in a highly competitive environment, as an older, more highly compensated woman.  Senior-level women were feeling like they may never be hired again, or that they might have to take huge pay cuts, or if they held onto their jobs they found themselves being passed over for promotion or training by those younger than them, often men. I knew I’d found my niche. I knew I’d found my life’s work.

What changed for you after age 50?

I had already transitioned out of a corporate career and started my own business. When I turned 50 I felt like “Kamrin, if not now, when?” Time to face fears. Time to really use my voice. Time to truly evolve into the person I am supposed to become. I have enough experience, learning and training under my belt. Time to face my own shit.

What would you tell the 20 or 30-year-old YOU?

Work with someone to help get clarity on who you are at your core. Embrace that fully. Ask more questions of everyone. Question what’s driving you.

What do you think you’ll tell yourself in retrospect at the end of your life?

I’m so glad you did the hard things you had to do in your 50’s!

What impact do you think increased visibility can have on your business?

I think increased visibility can help me in two main ways, I hope that it will help me to turn my 50, Not Dead podcast work into more of a “movement”. I want to have impact on how companies and society see women as they get older. I also think increased visibility will help drive the right women to me for the 1:1 Coaching that I love doing.

Who or what inspires you and why?

The Law of Attraction. When I see myself set things into motion, it reconfirms to me that we have so much more power over our lives than we think we do. For me, it is an ongoing effort to think forward, not dwell on the past or now. It takes real work to change our patterns of thought. I love the possibility of these ideas.

Something else I’d like to share

My ultimate work is to connect with others, to be a strong role model for my daughter and to face fears in order to change lives for the better.
