Three Questions to Reflect and Refocus
For our purposes, let’s define “customer” as any individual or group for whom you can provide service, assistance, investment, aid, etc.
When you think about the next season of your life and how you want to make your time and resources count, who comes to mind? Have you stopped for long enough to really consider: Who is my “customer”?
We invite you to pause and think or journal through some of these questions to help:
- Who do your skills and passions best equip you to serve?
- Do you have the network you need to get started?
- What obstacles are standing in the way of pressing go?
- Are there any limiting fears that you need to leave behind?
When it comes to our team, many ask, “Who exactly do you serve at Halftime?”
At the core, our clients – “halftimers” – are diverse leaders (ranging from mid-30s to mid-70s in age and crossing all industries, ethnicities, and genders) who have a desire to actively pursue purpose in a variety of ways, each unique to their individual experiences and skills. Regardless of background, halftimers are seeking clarity on how they can use their God-given talents and resources to make an impact. Some are passionate about investing in their own communities, while others tackle challenges around the globe.
Contrary to popular belief, the large majority don’t “retire” in the traditional sense before pursuing their mission – instead, they continue on, leveraging the influence and experience they have gained throughout their life with a renewed vision and purpose.
Prior to starting their halftime journey of discovery, many people “checking out” Halftime sense that God is nudging them to make a change, although their next mission may not be crystal clear yet. We call this, “smoldering discontent.”
Can you relate to any of these comments?
“I feel stuck and know I need help to figure this out. For me, this is not a DIY type of process.”
“I have always felt that I’m in the wrong place. I want to figure out what God has in mind for me.”
“A lot of people ask me why I’m leaving the military at the height of his career. I’m leaving because my mission is somewhere else; it’s scary but true.”
Another common theme among prospective halftimers? Fear. The journey to discover the right fit is scary and the unknowns can often feel like a roadblock. This is where our team of Halftime Certified™ Coaches come into play. Our programs are customized to help you discover your sweet spot and dive in to living it out with the support of a strong network of leaders like you.
