I am a Career Makeover Strategist™ and the founder of Reinvent Yourself Club.
I help amazing, ambitious women put on their oxygen masks first! It's about knowing WHAT you want and how you're going to get there... Personal growth, goal setting, passions alignment and kick-ass career makeovers are my jam.
Together we will rediscover, reinvent and redefine your professional-awesome-self (be it business or a dream job) while generating true impact and creating a thriving life
SO WHAT IS THIS SITE ABOUT AGAIN?
Let’s clarify some terms, shall we?
Reinvent – to make as if for the first time something already invented or to remake or redo completely. This is where you reconnect with yourself.
Career – surprisingly enough, a career IS NOT a job, rather an individual’s journey through learning, work and other aspects of life – it’s a process. It's about creating your opportunities, experimenting with things, reaching out to new people, writing your narrative... Pursuing of consecutive progress towards becoming who YOU ARE!
Renaissance – literally meaning “rebirth” in French and is most commonly used in association with cultural awakening. This blog is part of my own and YOUR renaissance. I urge you to give rebirth to YOUR dreams, goals and drive and accept the various different passions.
Makeover – the act or process of making changes to improve the appearance or effectiveness of someone or something. This one is about making over your LIFE as a thriving woman and owning your success.
Impact – a marked effect or influence. It can be used as a verb (to impact your career) or as noun (generating social impact) – as long as it’s YOUR WAY of making the world a better place through your work.
Blogging – online personal reflections, comments, and often a personal brand in business. You don't have to write a blog to benefit from this site, but often it's an exciting first step to get out of your comfort zone and begin your REINVENTION journey.
Growth – activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations.
And this is what I set out to do!
ENOUGH ABOUT ME , HERE'S SOME MORE ABOUT ME
I’m a serial career changer, a TCK (who only found out this term decades latter), an over-achiever, a seasoned expat and a wildly curious gal. And since we are going to be building a relationship, a couple of things you should know:
Languages I speak on a daily basis. Sometimes I forget how to pronounce my own name.
Different career paths that I tried (private tutor, government analyst, international organizations… tried it all)
Days that I kept up with my lawyer job
Kilos that I need to lose to "be happy"
hours spent banging my head against the wall wondering what I want to do when I grow up
Harry Potter/ Lord of the Ring books read + Stars Wars movies watched
Hours spent in advanced physics class. Graduated first in my class – never touched it again
Countries visited to date. I’m sooo behind schedule…
Times that I was nominated to the “40 under 40” list in the field of public policy
life to live and you need to make the most impact with it!
WANT EVEN MORE ? HERE ARE 5 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME
I’m a wife of one (well it would be illegal otherwise, no?) handsome medical researcher and a mother of 2 super energetic boys.
I’m allergic to pepper. Kind of weird, right?
I’m a super curious international goal-setter who doesn’t believe in finding your ONE passion (yes, even if I coach about career change… especially then!)
I can have ice-cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner for an entire week (yes I tried that… not a good idea!)
I’m Don Quixote wannabe, who wants to live in a world where all children are loved and cherished and the good guys always win!
THE SLIGHTLY MORE OFFICIAL VERSION
(The write-about-yourself-in-third-person kind of style)
Rita Golstein-Galperin is a Career Makeover Strategist™ and the founder of Reinvent Yourself Club.
A former career shifter and a seasoned expat from childhood, she is now a multicultural mom in Paris, and a big lover of everything chocolate.
Having spent many years on a pursuit of “what do I want to do when I grow up?”, she decided she doesn’t want to grow up and doesn’t want to put her dreams on hold!
And thus embracing her own inner-contradictions and her Peter Pan syndrome, she created this space to inspire and evoke change among fellow girlfriends.
Rita helps women around the world redefine and reinvent their success - be it a business or a job.
SO WHAT DO YOU WANT TO TO NEXT?
TAKE THE REINVENTION PLEDGE
I hereby solemnly declare to start OWNING my success, never to freeze in fear, sit in utter despair, or give up on my dreams… I will REINVENT myself!
Plus: I will welcome awesome free goodies in my mailbox :)
