Crisis or Opportunity eBook

This midlife-lemons-to-lemonade edition of the Career Planning & Adult Development eJournal is a “love of labor” experience as the participants herein have shared the unfoldment of their higher expressions of career even in the face of (or because of?) the challenges of midlife.
This journal is a compilation of stories offering hope and inspiration to demonstrate that the adversities of life in general, and midlife career in particular, are often the catalyst to the greater role we are here to play.

I invite you to be inspired, moved, healed, motivated, recognized, and appreciated for all of your own overcoming of adversity as you share the experiences of these seven authors. Each expresses powerfully and vulnerably their own unique version of the trials and tribulations we face as we follow from deep within—and often unwittingly—our own urge to emerge into our greater yet to be.
