About 75 million baby boomers are currently experiencing midlife changes. Midlife is a critical period when a need to redefine life occurs. “Now what do I do with my life?” and “Who am I?” are questions that surface during midlife transition. Creating second careers, finding purpose in life, and exploring new life options are opportunities to create a meaningful midlife transformation. It’s Your Turn: Find Your Authentic Self and Go Fetch It! documents Barbara’s midlife transformation and how she created innovative activities to find her true self. Using the advice in this book, you too can discover your authentic self and create a more meaningful existence for yourself.
While working in education and business, Barbara began her journey towards self-discovery. Barbara’s life has transformed from doing what she had to do into now doing what she loves and what feels authentic. Her inner search over the past 20 years has taken her on a wonderful and exciting adventure that finds her today as a TV and print commercial actor, associate professor, professional keynote speaker, and executive life coach. Barbara’s journey of self-exploration is documented in her first book It’s Your Turn: Find Your Authentic Self and Go Fetch It! and continues in this sequel Power in Midlife and Beyond: 14 Ways to Create an Authentic Life. This book aims to inspire and guide you to your own authentic self-awakening.
