Lift As You Climb

Have you ever looked in the mirror and asked “Who Am I Now”? As Baby Boomers, we’ve been so busy ‘adulting’ and keeping up with expectations for decades, it is not surprising that we lose touch with ourselves as we evolve and change over time. Growth, transformation, and reinvention with a purpose and a plan are essential to a fulfilled life. Each Wednesday, Isabel Alexander, self-proclaimed Mistress of Reinvention, unpacks her personal evolution system, Lift As You Climb, and engages guests to share their Ah-Ha moments of recognizing their evolved, authentic selves. Be inspired by others who embrace “This is who I am now!” and choose who they want to become next as they love their life and live their legacy. This podcast celebrates Identity, Influence and Impact at every age and every stage of life!


episode 47: Birthday Milestones and Encore Intentions

Who knew?

Not Me?

Three years – how is it possible this much could change?

Three birthdays – how is it possible I could change this much?

It’s been said that most people underestimate what they can accomplish in one year, and yet, they underestimated how much they can do in a decade.

I have also heard a version of that statement that affirms we usually underestimate what we can do in just three years.

History will record 2020, 2021, 2022 as the years of a Global Pandemic caused by a sneaky, shape-shifting virus nicknamed Corona.

My history: or my #HERstory, as I like to say, will reflect diverse, significant, unanticipated, and challenging changes in my life during those three years.

On the eve of my sixty-eighth birthday, I reflect on my evolution, growth, and changes during a very short period of my encore life.

2019 - I kicked off my 65th year with publishing a popular non-fiction work for women, Who Am I Now – Feminine Wisdom Unmasked Uncensored   >>> LINK

2020 – I took my business coaching and personal transformation business online and around the world The Encore Catalyst and collaborated to create multiple online courses.

2021 – I started the Lift As You Climb Podcast, assumed leadership of Renegades Reinventing Facebook Group for professional women reinventing retirement on their own terms, moved to Canada, and filed for divorce.

2022 – I joined the burgeoning ranks of Gray Divorce, expanded my reach with more coaching and online knowledge programs, including Gray Divorce, No Remorse and the Gray Divorce Podcast (available Q3 -2022)

2023 – Plans are in motion already for an Audio Book and companion workbook. On my Vision Board are intentions for a TED Talk or TED X, and global speaking engagements to inspire others to Live Their Legacy!

I only plan to retire from the things I no longer wish to do and do more of the things I want to do. I hope to never stop learning, evolving, transforming and reinventing. 

I love my ENCORE life and I am grateful for every birthday!
