Road to Fulfillment:

True Stories about Changing Direction and Finding Happiness

by Lynn Ryder

Reinvent Yourself After 50 Workshop with Coach and Consultant, Lynn Ryder

Would you like to change your life? Are you searching for your true calling? Discover how 19 ordinary people made dramatic changes and found fulfillment through new careers, meaningful relationships, social activism, and spirituality. These inspiring men and women tell you, in their own words, about their challenges and struggles, the support that appeared in unusual guises, and their ultimate transformations. A 50-year-old CIA analyst quits the job he hates to become a movie theater owner. A single mother of two leaves computer programming to become a religious leader.

Lynn Ryder gives you practical advice and exercises so you too can discover your passion. Read Road to Fulfillment to create a happier, more meaningful life.

"Lynn Ryder makes a strong case that joy has less to do with achievement than with aliveness, choice and creativity. If you're feeling trapped, read this book to open up new possibilities for yourself. You'll find how to change your life into one that you love."

- Susan Page, author of If I'm So Wonderful, Why Am I Still Single?
