Have you been faced with having to make a career change in mid-life, perhaps caused by circumstances out of your control? Many people have experienced this situation, with the fear and uncertainty that can go with it.
On Wednesday, May 15 from 2-3 pm at the Campbell River Branch Library, Powell River author Linda Wegner will present a program based on her recent book 3 D Success-Changing Careers in Mid Life. Her book is a universal story that will inform and encourage every person who has had to face the loss of a job and/or a career change in middle age. Inspired from her own experience, it briefly chronicles her personal journey from being a long-time pastor’s wife to primary wage earner after her husband’s health failed. The primary focus of the book, however, is a compilation of advice and lessons learned in setting up her successful business.


For those contemplating a career change, this book chronicles my journey through the maze of validation, discovery, and persistent action: the validation of my known strengths, the discovery of those strengths I did not know existed and the development of a determined plan of action that did not include quitting. I took aim at victory.” Wegner writes in the introduction to the book.
Her formula for success arose from three over-arching personal goals: 1. Discover your passion, 2. Develop your plan, and 3. Defend your priorities. Her “3D Success,” as she calls it, can be a guide for anyone facing a major change in life – be it career or otherwise.
Linda’s experience in conducting retreats and seminars includes seven years as a workshop consultant with the Agricultural Institute of Management in Saskatchewan and, more recently, as a workshop presenter for older workers through Powell River’s Career Link office. She has also published over 1,000 business and agricultural-based articles, and has written extensively for Business Vancouver Island and its associated publications.


This is a free program and all are welcome. The Campbell River Library is located at 1240 Shoppers Row. Pre-registration is not required. For more information, please call 250-287-3655.
