Starting Over shares the wisdom of successful life and career transition-how to navigate the grief in letting go of the past-to move on to a better life. It recounts the universal human story of major life evolution. It's about having faith in getting to the other side and finding the right path there.

The new economy has put a lot of us in the same boat. Corporate downsizing, organizational restructuring, layoffs, early retirement-many people are left to wonder about their futures. What's next? The world of work has changed dramatically. For most people, there is no going back.

There comes a time in every life when we are challenged to start over. We leave a life that we know and where we are comfortable for an unknown future. A significant part of our identity fades away as we begin a new journey. Voluntary or not, the world invites us to begin again, to renew.

We leave deep fingernail tracks in the doorframes of life, a testament to our struggle to cling to what we know, hoping to stay where we are. Life, nonetheless, boots us through to the other side.

It's time to start over.
