Meet an Entertainment Industry Leader who, against the warnings of her peers, made a satisfying career change that involved going back to school at midlife – and is now SO glad she did! Find out how the threads for her calling showed up in childhood aspirations; and now weave together in beautiful ways.
You’ll hear how she navigated the financial trade-offs of her reinvention, why she says to never ask a child, “what do they want to be when they grow up?” – and how refusing to choose between her passions has made all the difference.
The seeds of reinvention can often be traced back to the innocence, wonder, and magic of our childhood dreams. As you listen to today’s story, notice if the dreams of your childhood pop into your mind and if they provide guidance and give voice to your reinvention.

Eva’s Gem of Wisdom:
“Give your dream a voice. If it’s to go on stage and you’re 55 and you want to be an actor, try it. Take the classes, do the studying. If you’ve always wanted to …, and that’s your dream, give it voice. ”
