New Rules for Your Life and Your Business Podcast
Episode #21 with Nancy Burke Barr

Meet Nancy Burke Barr


A California native, Nancy Burke Barr was born into a family of Napa County vintners and raised in the lush Petaluma Valley.  Having been raised in a farming community, she learned early on that life can be as unpredictable as the weather and one’s ability to adapt is critical.

Those philosophies served her well as she studied abroad with New York University and graduated from U.C. Berkeley.  After working in retail and operating her own cooking school, Nancy returned to her studies. She earned a Juris Doctor from the University of Miami School of Law, graduating Magna Cum Laude and ranking #3 in her Law School class.

Many years later, after moving back to California, practicing estate planning, and raising three children, Nancy turned to online marketing.  Social Media opened up new worlds where she used her love of learning and adaptability to speak, train and coach in social media marketing.

With a shifting economy and a population of aging Baby Boomers, she is adapting once again and returning to her professional roots.  This Fall, Nancy will be opening the Law Offices of Nancy Burke Barr, providing Estate Planning and Fiduciary Administration.

Facebook Personal Profile:

NEW RULE; the Big Idea/ Strategy to help with this new world we live in:

“Embracing the change.  Baby Boomers are NOT too old to live the adventure!”


Why it’s important; benefits both personally and professionally:

“We are not old in the same way that people our age used to be.  We still have life and spirit and the capacity to change the world the way we set out to do when we were young.

Rejecting traditional retirement and adapting to embrace the role of Baby Boomers as thought leaders and forces of change will invigorate you and inspire you to continue growing both personally and professionally.”


How to accomplish the above:

“Push through the laziness.  Stop feeling sorry for yourself and view the “New Rules” as something that will breathe new life into your heart and soul.  Think about how much better an active, productive retirement will be!”

You have to push through the idea that this is a punishment … whether divorce, death, financial change … look at this as a whole new opportunity in your life. You can be anything you want to be. There is a whole new chance, 20 plus years, to make yourself whatever you want.  Very exciting – Stop feeling sorry for yourself and see it as something that will breathe new life into your whole being.  You can have a more active, more productive retirement.


Favorite Quote:

“The path you have been seeking always leads home.”
