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 story 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?” Download and start listening now!
