This week I am speaking with Deb Livingston, domain lead in the health and wellness, cooking, food, and nutrition areas for GetSetUp. Deb made this leap only with her passion for healthy food and no formal credentials.
Deb had a pretty traditional business background but when her mother became ill, she took a break to be with her mother in her final years. Deb joined the Career Pivot community and through a bit of serendipity, she found GetSetup and became a contract guide. This led her down a path that she could not have imagined.
She has since guided quite a few Career Pivot community members to become GetSetup guides in both full and part-time roles.
I had the GetSetUp CEO on the podcast in episode 242 called, GetSetUp is the Fastest Growing Online Learning Community of Older Adults.
I also had Vicki Soll on the podcast in episode 260 called, Vicki Soll Finds a Happy Place in Her Career by Teaching Older Adults. Teaching part-time for GetSetUp led her down a new path that she did not expect.
