Dr. Cynthia Barnett Consulting 

Elite Mentoring & Coaching for Private Clients

Life Is Waiting!


What does it take to live well in retirement? Good health, sound finances, supportive family and friends, and a fourth ingredient – a strong sense of purpose in life. Retirees with strong purpose are happier and healthier, more active and socially engaged, and they live longer. 


“Retirees with purpose don’t just stay busy, they make retirement the most meaningful and fulfilling time of their lives. They want to feel useful even more than youthful”


Marc Freedman CEO of Encore.org and Author of “How to Live Forever


Are you ready to answer the call that will help you live a post-retirement feeling more alive, vibrant with zest and energy, really savoring and enjoying life?

I can help you in my mentoring program.

This is perfect for you if you feel & 'stuck in a rut” - bored and disillusioned since quite frankly YOU planned for your financial needs but planning for your emotional and psychological needs might have been deferred. You did not plan exactly what you wanted to do with the
next 20+ years of your life.
With the right help you will see what's getting in the way of your growth. 


  • You are a retired teacher who is tired of waiting. 

  • You are feeling empty, lost and bored?

  • You wake up each morning thinking, “I want more from life… I am not done yet… I have lots more to give?”

  • You’re done trying to figure out it out solo

  • You are ready to accept new growth


If you've known for some time that a change is needed, then the next best step you can make now to complete this survey.

Consulting with Dr. Cynthia privately will be unlike any experience you’ve ever encountered. And unlike her membership program she must limit the number of clients she will agree to work within this unique and intensely personal way.

But before you reach for the phone, you must qualify for one very important reason:

Dr. Cynthia knows her personal, one-on-one mentoring and advice can deliver results  but it will require you to  be fully committed.


For this reason, Dr. Cynthia only wants to work privately with the most motivated and dedicated clients who she believes will bring their plans to fruition. Otherwise, it simply isn't worth spending her time - or yours. This private 1-on-1, is designed  to help you trade in boredom and emptiness for a sense of confidence, enthusiasm, and excitement about the future!
