"Now is the time to do what you've put on hold for years and to be who you've suppressed. You've earned it!"
- Bri Cobb

When you've dedicated your young adult years to raising your children and nurturing your family, at some point, you may yearn for something more, something just for yourself. You can simultaneously be grateful for these blessings and be appreciative of the experiences, and still know that you are meant for more.
Many women choose careers that offer flexibility, so that they may work toward a better work/life balance. Yet, this decision may hinder their trajectory for advancement in the workplace. Ultimately, some women abandon the business sector completely because the balance is unattainable; it becomes too difficult to do everything well and family is often the chosen priority.
Eventually, children leave the nest and you regain time, energy and freedom and it's the perfect opportunity to do all of the things you've longed to do.
What makes your heart sing? Do that.
After years of building a successful corporate brand management career, Bri faced the ultimate decision -- motherhood or career. A five-month stint on bedrest while pregnant with her second child, forced Bri to be still and reflect on what mattered most to her and her husband. She chose family and left her traditional career behind without regrets.
She eventually leaped into entrepreneurship to maintain her marketing skills and worked toward her own business goals helping entrepreneurs digitally market their small businesses. It was the perfect opportunity to pursue a longstanding dream.
Bri founded Living Her Next Phase, the digital hub of inspiration for the modern, progressive Gen X women to prioritize herself, reinvent herself, embrace selfish-ism and finally do what she's put on hold for years.
She promises to bring to you stimulating and thought-provoking discussions, relevant products and information, inspirational and motivational stories and fun, unique experiences to enhance your life through her podcast, digital magazine and experientials.
Motherhood changed me.
I'm a New Yorker living in the burbs of New Jersey. I am married to my college love for over two decades. My two beautiful children are semi-independent. I absolutely love these people, but I sacrificed a lot for them. Motherhood changed me. Now, I am on a mission to get the old me back -- but better!
Accomplished, but not to my fullest potential.
Accomplished Branding Expert and Digital Marketing Specialist at my company, HerVisibleBrand. MBA earned, 17 years in the corporate sector in brand management and advertising and 10 years as an entrepreneur. Authored the book, The Wind Blew My Way: An Entrepreneur's Journey Built on Faith.
If I could do it all over...
Didn't know how beautiful my younger body was until I delivered two kids and everything physically changed. In my head, I can get my body back. Haven't been able to do it so far, but I'm feverishly working on it. The new goal is to stay healthy and get fit and sexy...again.
Time to embrace "selfish-ism"
I've created this digital hub of inspiration for the modern, progressive woman, who has lived a little, to prioritize herself, embrace "selfish-ism" and finally do what she's put on hold for years. She is ready to finally focus on herself and live her dreams, wants and desires loudly and proudly.
Living my next phase! What about you?
I interview women who are now living their next phase because their children are somewhat independent and they have more time to focus on themselves. They are starting businesses, changing careers, focusing on health and fitness, dating their spouses again and getting their sexy back. I am doing all of these things. You?
My kids will soon leave the nest, so I am planning and living my own next phase -- looking good, feeling great, being at peace, living healthily, having fun, being happy and being fully aligned. Simple and straightforward.
