Hi, I am Mary Rettig, a blogger and online instructor.
I was very idealistic in my teens and twenties.I wanted to be a great nursery school teacher. I went to community college, majoring in Early Childhood Education. I worked in daycare, mostly with preschoolers, though my gift really was with infants and toddlers.
Those daycare jobs were very stressful, and I wasn’t very good at working with preschoolers.
I had many false starts, wanting to work with elders, but I was unable to leave daycare because of my fear of the unknown.
I spent about 15 years as a teacher of young children, but finally left my career because of health problems and returned to college, majoring in Psychology.
Then I decided to looked into coaching. 9 years ago, I finished a coaching program but found I did not enjoy it very much. After many false starts, I decided blogging and offering my own products was my dream business. I decided to teach and support women over 50, because that is a big passion for me, focusing on living a life of meaning, purpose, and fulfillment.
I am writing a journey blog, sharing my story so I can better help others.
My mission in life is to work part-time as a blogger and online teacher helping women over 50.
I like working from home. I start each morning spending time with God, reading the Bible, and journaling. This has made a world of difference in my day. I work a few hours a day. The blogging business fits right into my life style.
