Today’s Extraordinary Women Radio Guest is Barbara Brooks, the co-founder of the #SecondActBizCon, a Business+Lifestyle Event For and By Women Over 40 being held in Denver March 21-23.
This conference is for women in their 40s and 50s who are wanting to start their second… third or even fourth act in life and business. There’s going to be all kinds of stories being told on women stepping into their own second acts – the conference includes high-level breakout tracks, panel and audience discussions, deep dives, hands-on workshops, and socials with like-minded GenX and boomer women. I can’t wait!
In our interview we dive into a topic that we’re both passionate about – Your Next Chapter! We talk about how to take courage to step into your next career shift and embrace the fear that is there in when you’re starting all over again! (and why it’s so amazing when you do!)
Barbara is a a 28-year company marcom aficionado turned accidental entrepreneur. She’s a powerhouse community leader, a dynamic speaker and a die-hard philanthropist living the next phase of her life with purpose and vision. Yep – my kind of woman!
Her mission is to authentically inspire women to win big and boldly at work and everywhere in between.
Her career spans the shopping center and broadcast industries – winning several awards for her work as a senior-level marketer and business development manager. She oversaw business growth and sponsorship sales of regional and super-regional malls and a downtown shopping and entertainment district spanning from Texas, New York and Las Vegas, Nevada to Denver’s own, Park Meadows Retail Resort. Seeking change, she took a detour into broadcast business development for I Heart Radio (formerly Clear Channel), CBS Radio and Gannett Broadcasting.
Starting her ‘second act’ at 51, her new multiplatform communications agency, BloomCo Presents produces women’s business education and social programs with flair and savvy. Delivering on women’s advocacy and community, the two-pronged approach focuses on the newly coveted woman over 40 years-young and it’s all starting with her #SecondAct BizCon coming to Denver, March 21-23, 2019.
