Wondering what’s next in your life? Ready for a change to something that will meet your personal needs and also do some good in the world? You’re not alone.

They want to leave a mark. Make a difference—and continue to make money. They want an encore career. Nine million baby boomers have already decided to pursue meaningful work in their encore careers. Another 31 million are interested in making the leap. Do you want to join them?
