Description - Portfolio Life by David D. Corbett

Praise for Portfolio Life

"Dave Corbett's book turns two simple ideas into a program for
life-enrichment, that you can create a life expressly for yourself
and that the so-called retirement years are the best time to do it.
Drawing on a lifetime of work with people who were rethinking what
they wanted and their direction, he shows how to do both those
things. Be warned: If you read the book, you're going to be
changed. But I think you'll like how you turn out."

--Bill Bridges, author, Transitions and Job Shift

"Dave's book reveals a powerful and profound formula for crafting a
genuinely rich life. If you agree that retirement is passe,
and you are a lifelong learner and have a desire to make your life
count in a deeply fulfilling way, you will love this book."

--Fred Harburg, former chief learning officer and president,
Motorola University

"Healthy, fit, financially secure, and happy for another 40 years?
Is there really that kind of gold over 'them thar' hills? Yes, and
Portfolio Life is the guide, leading boomers to a life path never
before traveled by so many. Don't pass 50 without it."

--Natalie Jacobson, news anchor, WCVB-TV Boston

"This is the work of a wise, thoughtful author with decades of
experience helping people be more successful in the next chapter of
their lives. It will help you embrace change and explore the
possibilities that come with an additional 20 to 30 productive
years to be designed and lived on your own terms."

--Anne Szostak, chairman, The Boys & Girls Clubs of

"This timely book should be read by anyone of any age who wants his
or her life to have meaning and purpose beyond the accumulation of
money and things."

--Millard Fuller, founder, Habitat for Humanity and the Fuller
Center for Housing
