Bob Foley

Robert T. Foley is a Thought Leader, Author, Blogger, Podcast Host, Speaker and Career Coach in the emerging field of 50+ Second Career planning.

Educated as a Social Worker at Providence College. Bob decided that his true calling was to enter the field of Human Resources initially and then he ascended to the CEO ranks practicing his corporate craft in the Hospitality, Franchising, National Association, Publishing and Financial Services industries.

Bob heard the call of the franchise business several times during his career serving both as a 600-unit Hotel Franchisor CEO and as a three-time franchisee owner/operator in the home improvement, business development and executive search sectors.

Bob has seen the franchising business from all sides of the prism and now stands ready to help coach you – the next franchisee candidate. He believes strongly that franchising is the best avenue for the 50+ or Renaissance Warrior sector.

Why? Because today’s 50+ Renaissance Warrior is seeking their next opportunity not a rocking chair. They have paid their dues in the “first half of their career” and now they yearn for work that they want to do not have to do to sustain themselves for the second half of their lives.

50+ living and working guidance takes a coach who has been educated about this unique time frame and has lived it.

Bob personally knows the challenges of the 50+ lifestyle. He holds certifications in Retirement Coaching, Leadership Development and Business Planning. He left his 50+ corporate career in the rearview mirror and, after his transition, decided to dedicate his life to transforming Baby Boomer candidates into Renaissance Warriors.

That is how he found a home at, “The You Network”, where he practices his craft of helping people find their new purposeful work life. This period of reflection, with Bob, sets his clients on a path of their choosing armed with several possibilities and the right introductions.
