"Replete with illustrative true life stories, step-by-step 'user friendly' guidelines, and inspiring anecdotes for helping the reader craft and then achieve for themselves their own definitions of 'the good life'." —Midwest Book Review

"Storytelling. What a lovely thing that is.... All of us are walking stories. ... Sometimes others tell our story for us – as BJ does in this book, unfolding each person's story in a lovely way. We learn from others' stories. They manifest courage, to inspire us. They cry: "Don't give up!" They cry: "See how crooked was the path by which I reached my dreams? Don't despair if yours is not the straight path to your destination ...You will get there. See! I did. Because it's never too late." –Richard Bolles, author of the bestselling What Color is Your Parachute?

"I've always loved inspiring quotes. In fact, I have a refrigerator magnet with George Eliot's famous quote, "It's never too late to be what you might have been." My own life is a testament to its truth ... thus far I've been an entrepreneur, a mom, a wife, an author and keynote speaker, and a merchandising maven. Who knows how many more challenging roles I'll take on in the second half of my life?" –Lisa Hammond, aka the Barefoot CEO, founder of Femail Creations catalog, author of Dream Big

Inspired by the timeless quote by the great writer George Eliot, It's Never Too Late to Be What You Might Have Been is a guidebook to getting the life you've always wanted. Written in best-selling author BJ Gallagher's trademark warm and witty style, this book is written for, in her own words, "Everyone who has let fear or busyness or any reason good or bad get in the way of achieving your highest goals and long-held dreams, and isn't that everyone?" Whether you are a brand new college graduate going out into the big, wide world, a business executive escaping burnout, or a 40-something mom looking for a 'second life,' this book is a wonderful combination of great advice, step-by-step guidelines, and pure inspiration to listen to and honor your inner voice and seize not just the day, but the rest of your life!
