This is a well-written book that will help anyone who feels that they are in rut, whether they are retired or still working. The advice that the author presents will encourage and motivate readers to find their passions and pursue them so that they make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others. For those who want to find real value in their personal lives, this book will help them refocus their direction and help them to get on a journey that is truly important. ~ Ernie Zelinski, Author, Innovator, Prosperity Life Coach
Dave Bernard's book is delightfully written with a strong call for each of us to pursue our passion. Covering such topics as family, health, work, retirement, and much more, Bernard touches on an array of areas that most inspire us and make life worth living. Each chapter offers helpful suggestions and tips on how to live with passion and purpose, rather than let our true desires collect dust in the recesses of our hearts. The book is fast-paced and easy to read with complex concepts delivered in digestible bites. ~ Shift Village
This is a valuable resource for anyone seeking more spark in any arena of life, whether personal, career, or retirement. Dave Bernard inspires with lofty quotations and notes from his own life. More importantly, he provides realistic tips and suggestions in every chapter to discover your personal passions and put them into practice. Not every suggestion will resonate (hockey?) but there's something here for everyone, with chapters exploring career, travel, health, love, and more. Highly recommended. ~ Andy Landis, Author of "When I Retire"
I facilitate retirement planning seminars and one of my modules deals with the important issue of figuring out what you are going to do, once you "retire". Dave Bernard has done a great job of not only helping people work through the process of doing that, but also providing several "activities" to investigate. While the "purpose quest" is unique for every individual and cannot be scripted, Dave's book is a great place to start your adventure. ~ Robert H. Shultz, "Retirement Guy"
