I'm answering alwayshopeful's comment about being a homemaker for nearly 20 years and now trying to find a career and not knowing where to start. I have the same problem! I can't pursue the career I've been in for 20 years (suddenly laid off and there are no other job openings) and want to explore other options but having never done this before, where do I start? My field is extremely specific and doesn't translate well to other fields (not business or medicine or technology). I think about things I like to do, but have no idea how to make that into a career. How have others of you started? Particularly: is there anyone who accomplished this mid-life?
