My friend and author, Barrett Clemmensen Powell, has written a book that is geared to people in the mid-life age bracket – Midlife Opportunity. My ‘Lit Chicks Anonymous’ book club is currently reading The Husband’s Secret, but Barrett’s book is on my reading list. (Although I’m in denial of this midlife phenomenon).
Please take a read of Barrett’s book and leave a review on Amazon and/or Good Reads.
Midlife Opportunity: Power, Money and Wellbeing in Your Late 30s & Early 40s
Early midlife (ages 37-44) is a time when we can go through midlife transition or have a midlife crisis. The attainment of money and power still looms large but the third “leg” that provides a stable, and good life is wellbeing.
This book examines the four “journeys” we take in early midlife and the generations of the 20th and 21st century at midlife. Wellbeing is within walking distance — it is attainable if you choose to journey well. As the author explains, you do not need to be a millionaire; you do need to plan for the future and handle your finances responsibly.
You do not need to be a CEO of a company; you do need to be an honorable, trustworthy person with integrity in your family, among your friends and at work. You do not need to be an Ironman or a fashion model; you do need to take good care of your body, mind and spirit.
