Mahara Sinclaire, M Ed.
Successful people in their 50’s and 60’s from all over America and Canada are approaching retirement and asking the same question of Mahara Sinclaire, “How did you make it happen?” Mahara and her husband Ken have experienced a 24 month odyssey around the world, logging hundreds of thousands of miles as they visited 43 countries. The most frequent comment can be summed up in the phrase, “Where did you get the jam to do it?”
This former musician, college and university instructor and learning specialist says desire for adventure, and willingness to change and to reach new goals is what sets her apart. Many say she has a special talent for motivating people to reach their goals.
If you are seeking a rich and satisfying retirement, you will want a comprehensive approach and a way to focus your energies to achieve your goals. Her new book, The Laughing Boomer: Retire from Work – Gear Up for Living! will give you motivation to live your dreams. Check out www.laughingboomer.com.
Mahara is an entertaining and dynamic instructor with many years experience in helping people go forward with their lives. She has been a faculty member at three BC colleges for the past twelve years.

I feel completely privileged to have been taught by Mahara. I never thought learning could be so informative, interactive, but mostly fun. I’m feeling more confident and focused than I ever have.
