Road To Fulfillment by Author, Coach and Consultant Lynn Ryder

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?

Thanksgiving Dinner and Memories

It’s FALL

October 18, 2019

Here in Marin County I’m overwhelmed by the beauty of the changing foliage and waterways.  But, it’s also a confusing time.  Suddenly there’s so much to do – Fleet Week, the Symphony, bonfires at the beach, classes to teach – and, yet, as the days grow colder and shorter, I want to quietly hibernate and…

Taking Time to Travel

August 19, 2019

Speaking Up is Hard to Do

April 20, 2019

I struggle with when and how to speak up, especially when it comes to politics.  I have a friend who practically rants about our national political situation.  I agree with much of what he says, but I can only take his anger in small doses.  On my recent trip to New Zealand, many locals wanted…
