Being a Life Shifter requires a bucket load of courage combined with a dose of insanity.

A Life Shifter is someone who makes a major & deliberate change in life, be it a change in location, change of career or vocation, or a voyage beyond the great beyond. The older you are or the more entrenched you are in your life, the more challenging it is to become a fully-fledged Life Shifter.

Perhaps there should be grades of Life Shifters. Under 25 and single? A Notable Mention. Forty-five, married with two kids? Gold medal status. Everyone else will fall somewhere in between.

Whatever status they are and whatever change they make, a Life Shifter needs to commit and not dwell on times past. Over the coming days I will post two interviews with Life Shifters. Their Jagger-esque moves serve to awe and inspire.
