Jane Canapini was a 20-year-veteran of the advertising world in Toronto, Canada. She worked as a creative director for both large and small advertising agencies. But in 2012, her last agency downsized and she was laid off at the age of 51.
Rather than landing another job in advertising, she decided it was time to make a major career change. She pursued her life-long passion by launching a travel blog called Grownup Travels.
One thought on “A Reluctant-Preneur: Laid Off at 51, Jane Launches Grownup Travels”
Inspiring and motivating! I first met Jane at the very beginning of “Grown-up Travels” when I was launching my own second act as a travel conceptualiser. I was struck by her humour, resolve, and willingness to lend a hand to a fellow travel enthusiast. She–and Grown Up Travels — have come a long way. Thrilled to hear this podcast!
