Description
In this inspirational book, beloved broadcast journalist Jane Pauley helps people in the middle of their lives successfully navigate a reinvention phase and build a positive, powerful future.
IN 2014, EVERY BABY BOOMER WILL HAVE REACHED THE MILESTONE AGE OF FIFTY. FOR MOST, IT S NOT AN END BUT THE BEGINNING OF SOMETHING NEW.
This is the awakening of a generation to the opportunities that lie ahead. Research has shown that people in their fifties are more vital now than they were only ten years ago. They re saying, I m game, I m up for it, I want to do more.
Jane Pauley, one of America's most beloved and trusted broadcast journalists, gives voice to the opportunities of her generation and the next one too offering humor and insight about the journey forward. Your Life Calling is a fresh look at ideas that have been simmering since boomers first entered midlife with a different perspective on the future than any generation before: that there was more to come and perhaps the best of all.
Jane is not an advice giver but a storyteller. Here she tells her own and introduces readers to the fascinating people she has featured on her award-winning Today show segment, Life Reimagined Today. You ll meet Betsy McCarthy, who traded in her executive briefcase for knitting needles; Gid Pool, who launched a career as a stand-up comic; Richard Rittmaster, who joined the National Guard Chaplain Corps; Trudy Lundgren, who took her home on the road in an RV; Paulie Gee, who opened a successful pizzeria in Brooklyn; and many more. Their stories are delightful, compelling, and inspiring for anyone asking What am I going to do with my supersized life?
