About Kimberly…

Contact me at 850-939-5858 or kimberly@awriterabout.com

Hi…my name is Kimberly and I’m in my, ahem, EARLY fifties.   At least for a few more months.    I call myself a recovering MBA and Dream Wrangler.

If you are looking for the credentials, here they are:

  • MBA Anderson Graduate School of Management at UCLA 1990
  • BA in Journalism with Minor in French University of Georgia 1983
  • FL Licensed Real Estate Agent (not active)
  • FAA Licensed Aircraft Dispatcher
  • Licensed Profiting from Your Passions® Advisor

Work experience in Sales, Sales Training, Direct Sales, Marketing, Complex Project Management, Internal Communications, and Classroom Instructing in the Pharmaceutical, Medical Capital Equipment, Telecommunication, Advertising, and Commercial Aviation industries.

(Good grief.  Enough of that.  See why I am recovering…?)

My DREAM is to be able to work just nine months a year,  and teaching is an option, but not my first choice.  I’d love to have my free months be in the Fall or Winter, when it’s easier to travel.

Next July, I become eligible to retire from my aviation job.   I don’t expect to retire then, but I AM beginning a two-three year project to change my work/life structure once I get the youngest child launched.

I started this blog to share what I’m learning about part-year work options for those of us who need to, or want to, keep working.  We just don’t want to work AS MUCH.  Two or three weeks vacation isn’t cutting it. We want two or three MONTHS a year work free.

If this sounds like something you would love to do too, please join my tribe of fifty plus somethings, and I’ll share what I learn as I go.

Please also go have some fun with the quiz!  It’s completely without obligation and a fun way to see if this might work for you.

I look forward to meeting you as we figure this out.

Best,

Kimberly
