Marilyn C. O’Leary

Life Change Coaching, Books, and Events

Welcome! My name is Marilyn C. O’Leary I am a professional life coach who works with people working through issues of life change. If you are a retiree, a widow or widower, recently divorced, want to change careers or are experiencing another significant life transition, I can help. I am also an author who has written books about loss, serious and chronic illness, grief, resilience, and renewal.

Third Act of Life is my Blog where I talk about what it means to be in the third act of life, what it’s like being a widow after 50 years of marriage, and simply what it’s like to be alive in this world today.

Join my mailing list to learn about my events, book and poetry readings, and experiential workshops related to goal setting, life fulfillment, and finding joy.

I am pleased to announce my latest book, an ebook, Love and Fun. This is a book of short pieces that look at how to live an authentic life. Included are personal experiences that I hope you relate to. Learn more about my books.

I began my “work” with Marilyn thinking, with the greatest zeal, that I might find that new, fulfilling job. Five months later, I felt I had something far better: the realization that I have a vision for my life. I found Marilyn relentlessly optimistic and wise in her counsel; I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to receive her enthusiastic coaching.
