Alice Agnello is a lifestyle and success coach for women in midlife. She focuses on women whose kids have left home and now they’re struggling with trying to figure out their “What’s next?” Alice helps them figure out their dreams and understand how to get from where they are now to where they want to go. Now that they’ve got all this time and they really don’t know what to do with it because their focus is no longer 100% on their kids, Alice helps them move forward into their next version of success.
3 takeaways from the conversation
- How to prepare for the change years before it happens.
- Why filling the void is harder than just finding a new hobby
- The importance of building relationships outside of your children (with your partner and your friends)
As your children are transitioning and you are becoming an empty nester, how do you make the transition into what’s next? I sat down with Alice Agnello, a lifestyle and success coach for women in midlife trying to figure out their “What’s next?”, to talk about setting yourself up for success as your kids leave the nest.
For many women, the change from full-time, on-call mom to empty nester is a shocker though Alice explains that it doesn’t have to be that way. By taking the time to make adjustments in your relationship with your children while guiding them in building relationships with others, you can remove the shock and ease into this new phase of life. Alice also takes us through the process of reconnecting with ourselves, partners, and friends to ensure we have a solid system of support as we go from a family dynamic revolving around children back to personal relationships built on real connections.
