Summary
Elizabeth White has an impressive resume, which includes advanced degrees from Harvard and Johns Hopkins and a distinguished employment history. She started a business that failed and then tried to re-enter the work force in her mid-fifties, only to learn that there is little demand for workers her age, even with her outstanding resume. Her retirement savings account was largely depleted by her business. For a while Elizabeth lived in denial, believing she would get her old life back. But when old strategies failed she learned she wasn't alone: there are millions of Americans in her predicament and worse, exhausted trying to survive and overcome every day. Here, Elizabeth invites you to join her in looking beyond your immediate surroundings and circumstances to what is possible in the new normal of financial insecurity. Maybe you're in your fifties and sixties, like Elizabeth, and you have saved not nearly enough to retire. It's too late for blame or shame -- and it wouldn't help anyway. What you want to know is what you can do now to have a shot at a decent retirement. With more than 100 online resources, this book guides you through the emotional aspects of where you've landed and offers practical advice and options. If you're ready to stop beating up on yourself and get serious about feeling good again, this book is for you
