Exceptional New Encore Career Books!

This holiday season two exceptional new books are hitting the shelves.  Both books contain a ton of practical advice and encouragement for those seeking a new career or simply more meaning from their work life.

Journalist and popular author Norm Crampton hits a home run with Boomer Men Working, Strategies for Staying Employed (or Tackling Unemployment).  Chock full of practical, real-world tips, Crampton fills a gap in the literature with an employment plan geared for men in their late-40s to retirement.   Boomer Men Working is my #1 recommendation for men faced with career change after years of loyalty and dedication to a first career.  Thank you Norm!

Equally fun and useful is The Encore Career Handbook by author & columnist Marci Alboher.  A year in the making, the research for this work was sponsored by, the nation's leading non-profit career resource center for individuals in the second half of life.  Called a "comprehensive, nuts-and-bolts guide to finding passion, purpose and a paycheck in the second half of life", this work is likely to become the next-career go-to resource for years to come.  Preorder today, and you’ll get access to an exclusive online advice session in early January with author Marci Alboher. Email your receipt by January 1 to, and will send you details for how to access the online event.
