A short, pithy read on discovering the second most magnificent day in your life.

Mid Life Celebration the book, on Amazon
November 22, 2013… purchased a copy one week before public announcement


This book was written to inspire the reader, probably in midlife, to use their hard-hitting wakeup call(s) to finally, truly, change things moving forward.

To:  rethink • reprioritize • recommit

The new world order for midlife crisis is spending our life chasing our dreams and finally getting there, more or less. But in looking around, we think, “This isn’t what I wanted!”

This revelation (and profoundly simple solution) came about from a late blooming dad’s attempt to leave a trail for his young child in case something bad ever happened, leading to a radical new discovery for life balance.

When the author finally woke up and realized he was not going to live forever, he became inspired by his long list of excuses, regrets, second chances, and ultimately, his discovery of who grants each of us permission to change.

The overarching themes of this book are personal responsibility, balance, and second chances.

Readers will either curse the author because they are angry at his accusations that personal responsibility is the secret to joy or misery, or readers will stand up and cheer because they have been desperately waiting for a gentle, generous, direct, and much needed kick in the buttocks, and that kick has finally arrived.
