One of the wonderful things about the seasons of our Creator: each one comes at just the right time. I celebrated a 10-year season of working with The Human Capital Group in October. When I joined in 2006, I had no idea just how much of a sweet spot it would be for me. Coaching and consulting have enabled me to use my gifts, skills and experience to make a real difference in the lives of others. HCG is a fabulous place to work and I have so enjoyed the journey. I am grateful for this deeply rewarding season of my life.
In 2012, I heard Sandra Hatcher, a retired Merrill Lynch executive, speak on personal finance. She shared her testimony about going from a ‘driven’ personality to a season of retirement, waiting patiently for projects that God brought to her attention. I was really intrigued her story, and met her for lunch to talk learn more. I thought it would be great one day to have enough margin in my life to do the same, but I also struggled with the idea of retirement. I just don’t see that concept in Scripture.
Fast-forward a few years, and I can now see such a season approaching. I am not using the word retiring, as I have clearly heard the Lord say that a new season of service is coming – one where I have the time and energy to say yes. My husband calls it “refiring” – the opportunity to step back, refresh and renew, and to respond when the Lord calls. I have no idea what opportunities to serve the Kingdom lie ahead, but that is part of the wonderful adventure of following Him. He always comes up with bigger ideas than I could ever dream of.
I will be leaving HCG as a senior consultant on December 10th for this new season in my life. Steve has requested that I stay on as an internal advisor. No phone number, email or work with outside clients, but I will be available to provide insight and guidance to the team, and I’m excited to have that opportunity.
I am delighted to be able to announce that Ginger Duncan will be joining The Human Capital Group as senior consultant and executive coach on January 1st.

Finally, I want to share with you a quote from Dan Webster that has had a deep impact in my life.
“Am I impacting people because they admire my leadership savvy and skills
or are they impacted by my character and the beauty of my soul?”
I know this season in my life is coming at just His time. Grace and peace – Nancy
