"This empowering workbook is a practical guide for professionals on how to find joy and meaning in their lives. Join Paula Black and her colleagues, and learn how to create your own fulfilling Third Act! Paula Black is truly a master communicator and visionary of the meaning of life. She provides a depth of self-reflection and understanding that reaches into each reader's heart, spirit and mind to self-define the journey of what is next, what is important, and how to get there. I could not put the book down once I opened the first page. A deep soul-searching experience with profound outcomes" --Lorenzo A.Trujillo, Ed.D., J.D., Assistant Dean (Ret.), University of Colorado School of Law; Affiliate Professor of Music, Metropolitan State University in Denver

"Don't be deceived by the title Third Act. If you have been sitting at home for the last few months of this pandemic pondering the following questions--Am I living to my full potential? Am I making a difference in this world? Am I doing what I love? What would I do if I knew I would not fail?-- then this book is for you. This workbook is a unique blend of provocation, inspiration, and practical application, all designed to help you unlock your passion and live life on your terms. Be prepared to be pushed way out of your comfort zone and into a brave new world of self-discovery. Paula serves as your personal guide to help organize your thoughts and goals to create a tangible plan for your future. Her vulnerability is refreshing and creates a safe space for the learner.Don't wait another minute to dig in to this workbook!" --Laura Ravo, retail guru, author, and speaker.

"Paula Black's Retirement or a Third Act--What Will You Choose? reminds us that a fulfilling third act that we choose -- and "choose"is key--is enhanced by considering what part of our lives makes us happy today, and then our being so bold as to act on it. She outlines the homework to be done to enable us to choose wisely, and then ... 'Just do it!'" --M. Thérèse ("Terry") Vento Pérez Art Museum Miami, Deputy Director for Legal and Government Affairs and General Counsel

"Paula combines part inspiration, part methodology and part love to create the perfect recipe to empower readers to take charge of their 3rd act. This book is the perfect gift for anyone who is wondering what's next or what's missing in his or her life. Its heartfelt stories, stunning photos and practical advice make it a unique and powerful tool to take charge and to rethink what is possible in this life." --Lauren E. Smith, executive & board search consultant

"Don't read this book if you are not willing to be coached, goaded,encouraged, reminded and dragged into creating your best life by a talented visionary! Paula's book gives us opportunities to pick it up,work a bit, reflect a bit and gets us moving toward our best possible third act." --Fritzi Gros-Daillon, MS, CSA, CAPS, UDCP; CEO, Household Guardians; Director of Education, Age Safe America
