A life crisis presents big questions about a person's present and future paths which can be difficult to answer. Could starting a business provide the practical context an individual needs to work through these issues more productively? In this personal and amusing talk, business coach Bailey Richert shares six actionable questions learned through her entrepreneurial journey which will help anyone in the midst of a life crisis identify small, meaningful steps forward. Bailey Richert is a business coach who helps individuals launch profitable online enterprises as “infopreneurs”: respected experts in their fields creating value and generating income by sharing their life experience, knowledge and passions with others in a manner that supports their ideal lifestyles.

I would agree that the corporate life was sold to millennials, probably due to the creation of pensions, increased healthcare costs, and credit in the late 70's. But times are so different now, those promises yield lower returns, real wages are stagnant and there are hardly any easy and enjoyable opportunities. Retirement doesn't even look like a feasible option to many, or comes at a more extreme cost than it did for our parents. With these new circumstances and the information at our reach I think it's a brilliant time to be creative with our lives. I hope that many take that time to develop their own small businesses like you're promoting. Thanks, that was real and great.

This seems to be the common theme in 2018: "start your own business" 🙄 apparently it's the only answer to failure and success.

It is. Money is the answer to almost everything in life. Ask everyone.

Great talk. Thanks for sharing :D Who knows, maybe crises/other feelings which lead to increased self-reflection should be embraced as the opportunity for growth they are?

Is there any correlation between giving ted talks and suffering from anxiety? Because it was mentioned in the last four or five talks I've watched. Seems like everyone on the internet has anxiety. Just curious
Snackay (10 months ago)
She made many good points. My favorite is that some questions are actionable and others can be paralyzing.

There’s this 17 year old girl who owns businesses and I thought that’s something you have to be super rich to do... how DO you start a business? If a someone three years younger than me can do it, I want to try it

I’ve started a business at 25. This is a great idea. We need learn about who we are and who we can become through creative decision making. We must learn to take risks. Great idea. Not so great talk.

you are an amazing public speaker! It was a pleasure to hear your thoughts, opinions and experiences. You are very articulate, thorough, and come across as legitimately sincere. Great Delivery!!!!
Bailey Richert (1 year ago)
Thank you so much, Eric! I really valued this opportunity to share my message on the TEDx stage and wanted to put together the best presentation possible. I'm glad that came across!

I had a crisis at 47, I was laid off and my Daughter 20 had a crisis no one wanted to hire her. I decided this was never going to happen again. My daughter got a dream job working for friends who own their own business. I'm on a joint venture with my husband and friends and working out a plan for another business. In short it is hard but I'm no longer suffocating in a job that was...just a meaningless job. We're not robots people so stop treating yourself as one.
Bailey Richert (1 year ago)
Congratulations, Debbie, on being able to find your way out of your crisis - and your daughter, too! It requires effort, indeed, but the payoff is great, as you know!
Great job ... had to pause a bit and "reframe" you. Now I know where your passion comes from. Appreciate all of your customer service; products; programs; and, affiliation. Don't stop giving and working on your legacy! It's a great pursuit and the rewards are awesome indeed.

Thank you so much for your kind words!

I am going through a life crisis myself, as 22 yo that is failing university. I did already figure out the points she made, but the hard part is figuring out how to work on them. The only way I see myself getting through is by dropping the studies, start working, get out of this 'trapping' enivrement and invest the money in the things I want to achieve (successful YouTube channel). But the big problem with that is making my friends and family understand me. Most just say that I am wasting my opportunities that way, that I should know better, that I should think about not raising my kids in poverty (I don't have kids and I am still single, so it is not like those kids will be a factor in the upcoming years) etc. As if university is the only way to get happiness in life, but at the moment it is also the thing crushing life out of me.
Jacob Arthur (8 months ago)
Brecht, don't listen to your friends and family. If you know what you want to do even if it sounds crazy, then do it :) You will find out what happens in the end, it's your life not theirs. Live your life, do what you want to do :)

Watch some Jordan Peterson... that will sober you up. You Tube is not a career.

Byron Katie has 4 questions and a turn around method for self inquiry. An unquestioned mind is a life not worth living. Socrates. Follow your opportunity, not your passion.
Robert Hutchins (1 year ago)
I am quite a bit older than you are, but here are my thoughts. If you fail in college, so what? That is not the end of the world. Life is more about failing and learning from those failures than it is successes. You have to learn to fail before you can be successful. I am not saying you would do this, but just think of how you would handle it if you started your youtube channel and a year or two in were making no money from it and had very few followers and views? Would you quit? Also, as far as needing to convince others to understand you, there is no need to do that. If they don't, they don't and I promise you, it will not be the end of the world. If school is the right place for you, do not quit, just because you are failing. Work harder and do whatever you have to do to pass. You will learn valuable lessons from doing so. I am sure that you will be able to get through your situation and make the right decisions for you. Just make sure you are doing what is best for you and for the right reasons and good luck with your future endeavors!

Service is the antidote to despair.
T Regis (1 year ago)
Faith is the anecdote, service is the actions. Without faith, the desire to serve will be absent. The human psyche needs faith because life is volatile and like all mammals, we are fear driven.
Bailey Richert (1 year ago)
There is so much truth in this, Jim! Thanks for watching. :)

I had someone tell me once that most people miss the forest for the trees, but I was the type that missed the trees for the forest. I would lose the small pieces, and become overwhelmed by the big picture. This talk does a good job of showing how to focus on the trees. Get enough of them together, the forest will come about on its own.

I'm glad it was helpful in bringing things into perspective for you! :)

Great talk!
Thank you Miss Bailey, articulated quite well. Easy to understand and hopeful I will attempt to execute. I certainly create, rely, and more importantly believe my own rationalization behind remaining lazy, stagnated, and overall negative thinking that I use. Allowing me to not try beyond that written, albeit, enthusiastic plan. thank you for your example of life crisis as it spoke to not what you were going through, but tools to challenge folks like myself, who crave action , yet only stay in perpetual daydream phase, rather i call it spectator phase! u rock Miss Bailey. Smiles TCS
Bailey Richert (1 year ago)
You rock, Miss Tannya! Thank you for watching my TEDx talk. I'm really glad I was able to provide you with the tools to help you take action!

A life crisis in their late 20s? Im 57 now and going through my 1st crisis. I wish I was in my 20s again.
Joseph Price (4 months ago)
I turned eighteen literally two weeks after the economic crises of 2008 began. I had been living on my own for almost a year. I’d say it was definitely a life crises for me. It was a HARD two years after that. You had it good.

We have a totally different ecomony than when you were our ags so you can't relate... try to empathize and understand.
Jake Waterfall (7 months ago)
I would say my generation (I am 20) would have a 'crisis' earlier than before because we have an innate sense of wanting to make a difference and being mega wealthy due to the celebrity society we have been conditioned woht. I am no acceptation, I AM SAT HERE RGHT NOW IN MY OFFICE JOB (FIRST EVER OB) THINKNING HOW BORING IT IS AND AM I GOING TO WASTE MY LIFE DOING SOMWTHING I DONT ENJOY AND SHOULD I START A BUSINESS, :) THAT'S WHY I UNDERTSAND WHERE SHES CMING FROM
