Gals Starting Over

Our Mission is to improve women’s self-sufficiency and self-esteem through collaborative educational programs. We help women restart their careers.

Join our community of resourceful women to:

  • Build confidence and professionalism to restart your career
  • Enhance your job search skills and expand your network
  • Learn how to turn your unique gifts into fulfilling work
  • Pay it forward by helping other women

Gals Starting Over (GSO) is a community and program specifically designed to help women restart their careers.  Together we help rekindle dreams, repackage talents, and help women to regain their footing in today’s modern workplace. We are not just about jobs, but about the supportive community that is required to restart a woman’s career path to success.


GSO came into my life at the perfect time.... Holly Richards, the founder, is a gold mine and literally gave me the “shirt off her back”. She is kind, creative and a storehouse of resources. The program is clear, precise and motivating. The caliber of coaches is stellar, not to mention the sparks that fly when gals starting over support each other. This organization is relatively new; however, its scope will definitely impact many women and families in the South Bay in the years to come. This program has breathed life into my fledgling business. I plan on continuing to take the necessary action to bring my special skills to as many people as possible. Thank you GSO for putting together a template for guaranteed success. God bless, Gals Starting Over.

I’d love to thank you for directing me to the workshop today and accepting me to the workshop. I’ve learned a lot from it. The information is a lot more than I can find online. I really appreciated the existing of the organization and thank you so much for having this workshop.

I now know how to prepare for an interview. I feel more confident in using networking skills, like LinkedIn. I really feel more confident about my skills.

I feel more connected with others. I have a better understanding of my gifts.

I feel more confident and goal oriented. I was undecided about which route to take. This workshop helped me decide.

I discovered the importance of networking and transitional skills. Volunteer experience is also very important.
