At The School of Reinventing, we consider ourselves to be a TRIBE committed to an on and offline education movement that teaches reinvention methods, personal development, change management, and transformation to women 50 and older.
You are never too old to make a change, small or large. Here at The School of Reinventing, we work with women like you in various stages of their lives. Whether you are a woman who is planning for retirement, you've just become an empty nester, going through a divorce after 20 years, looking forward to your "second act" or you just want to do something different. We've got your back.
“We help women just like you find acceptance and joy in aging.”
Our programs and services are designed for the woman who may be a little afraid of taking the next step. We help you focus on the goals that YOU create with our help. We have a community of women who are just like you, therefore, you are never alone. Our courses are taught by women who have been where you are. These workshops are hands-on and provide you with honesty, guidance, education, coaching, and a safe place to learn to be your best self no matter what is happening in your life. Check out what we have to offer here.
To support your learning we thought it was a good idea to provide you with written resources and inspirational products. You can find them here.
We also offer events to support your learning and your journey. There is nothing like meeting in person for an evening to share a meal and conversation or to spend a couple of days at a retreat on a beautiful beach with like-minded women to plan your next act. Click here to find out more.
Because you are so important to us we've made sure that some of our most popular resources are available to you for free. We want to make sure that we positively touch as many women as possible. All you have to do is sign up to be a member here. Once you've done that you will have access to our Resource Library that is updated monthly.

"After working with Tracy one-on-one for six months, I created a new career strategy with achievable goals and objectives and landed a job in a new city. When I began to show more confidence in myself during my career change others saw me as more confident." - Lisa Bower, 50 - Went from being a history teacher to an Art Museum Executive Director.
"I took Tracy's online course called Reimagine Your Life. Little did I know that 12 months later my life would be so different. After doing all of the work that she taught us I decided to leave a 22-year marriage that was over 12 years ago. It's been scary at times but it was the right thing to do! I don't regret it." - Gail Matthews, 60 - Happily divorced and looking for a new love.
"I retired at 58 from a very stressful job. All of my colleagues couldn't believe it because they said I should stick it out for another four years. It wasn't worth it to me. The stress was killing me and besides, I had lost interest in being a social worker many years before. A friend told me about Tracy and the Find Your Passion online course. Thank God I took it. I did everything she told us to do in the course and found a new passion. I love jewelry and I am amazing at talking to people. People feel comfortable telling me their deepest secrets. I decided to become a consultant who reps talented jewelry makers. It turns out that I am a great salesperson. I am helping people and making money at the same time. Tracy, this course, and its process have been a blessing to my life." - Diana Moore, 59 - Consultant, Jewelry Representative for creatives.
"After working with Tracy in her one-on-one coaching practice I have been able to hone in on my skills and passions. She pushed me to be more and to stop worrying about my age. I have just completed my certificate in coding and am utilizing my skills as a website designer. Something I have always wanted to do. My kids can't believe it." - Alisha Norman, 64 - Went from being a retired Accountant to a Website Designer.
"After my last child went off to college I just didn't know what to do with my life. I gave up everything to be a stay at home mom and wife. I use to be a fashion buyer for women's ready-to-wear so I knew what it was like to have a career. I took Tracy's online course Reimagine Your Life and boy was it an eye-opener for me. I had no idea of who I was without defining myself as a mother and wife. To be honest, I am still trying to figure it out. Some days are great, others are good and some days are hard. Tracy says it's part of the journey. Tracy and the Reimagine your Life course has positively changed my life." - Natalie Grossman, 53 - Successfully reinventing her life one step at a time.
Through our Vlog, Spark the Shift TV, spectacular online training programs such as Reimagine Your Life and Finding Your Passion, and our Celebrant services I help women reinvent their lives.
People often ask me “Why on earth did you go through
so much self-inflicted change in your life?”
As I child I always had many interests and could not make up my mind to focus on just one thing. Unfortunately, I was made to feel different because of it by teachers, friends, and even family. I felt the need to change jobs often because I wanted and needed new stimulation. Because of my ability to change I learned to master new skills quickly. I have not changed as I’ve gotten older.
As time passed, I realized that I was able to bring disparate ideas together to create solutions and solve problems. I think it's one of the reasons I fell into the role of Chief of Staff for two large companies. As a Chief, you have to know enough about each department within your division to keep your business successful and because I held positions in various companies in Human Resources, Administration, Programs, Diversity, Philanthropy, Marketing, and Membership I was fully prepared to step into these senior leadership roles. By the way, I have been blessed to be successful in my reinventions every step of the way. It has not always been easy but it has always worked out in my favor.
“Thank God I didn't listen to those people who tried
to shame me into being someone else.”
We've come a long way because people like me are not judged as harshly any more. There even seems to be a name for us, Multipotentialite. Career Coach and artist, Emile Wapnick created the word. Thank God I didn't listen to those people who tried to shame me into being someone else.
Although I've held diverse positions in my career most of them have been in organizations that stand for women and girls; now there lies my first deep soulful passion, sisterhood and advocating for us. That has been consistent throughout my career. If you want to get to know me talk to me about women's issues. I consider myself a feminist because I believe women deserve to be treated equal no matter who they are or what they do for a living. I also get inspired by beauty because it sparks my five senses. Beauty to me is smelling a pink peonies flower, seeing a Romare Bearden painting, tasting my sister's sweet potato pie, hearing a Gregory Porter Jazz song, and feeling a soft organic cotton t-shirt on my skin. Finally, I am also a sucker for animals. Five percent of what we make goes to advocate for their rights.
So here I go again stepping into new territory to reinvent myself one more time by starting this business.
“The big untold story --- I believe that women over 50 are changing themselves
along with the rest of the world.”
We women over 50 are special. For the most part, retirement is not on our radar. We are reimagining ourselves doing something better and taking on life with new confidence and purpose.
I believe that no matter how old you are, what space your life is in at this moment or who you used to be, you have the power to start that business, write that book, or find that new love. My job is to help you minimize the fear, create the strategy and empower you to step into the next stage of your life with power, style, and grace.
BUT IT REALLY IS ALL ABOUT YOU
I am here for you. My company is built on POSSIBILITIES. The possibility to help you create whatever you want for YOU, to use your female VOICE to influence what happens around you for the better, and the possibility to live, laugh and love every day for the rest of your LIFE!
Looking to reinvent your career, health, relationships or your life? It can be a small or a large change. It does not matter. We are here to guide you through the transformation process.
