About the book:
We’ve heard it all before: “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”
“Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
“When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”
But anyone who has ever tried to make a big life change knows it can be a bit more complicated— and frightening—than that. How do you get up the nerve and confidence to actually take the leap? No one knows better than the women profiled in this powerful book by actress, activist, and bestselling author Marlo Thomas.
It Ain’t Over … by Marlo Thomas
When I was younger, I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. After college, career, marriage and children, I started to question those decisions. Unfortunately, like many women, I felt stuck in a career I wasn’t in love with any more because I had bills and responsibilities. I felt doomed to spend the rest of my life doing a job I didn’t like until my husband encouraged me to take a chance on a dream.
It Ain’t Over … by Marlo Thomas is a book about women who reinvent their lives and realize their dreams – no matter what their age. The book is filled with stories of women who have decided to go after their dreams despite the obstacles that they think are holding them back. You will learn more about sixty different women who have launched new businesses, traveled the world, gotten more education and taken steps to make their dreams a reality.
I loved learning more about the women featured in this book. I found their stories very motivational because after seeing the obstacles that they overcame, it made me feel more confident about overcoming mine. They weren’t rich, famous women. They were everyday people just like you and me – suburban moms, teachers, women who struggled to pay their bills and get ahead. I loved learning more about each woman but probably felt the most connection with the women who had financial limitations. I have lots of dreams but most of them cost money and I feel like that stops me many times. Reading the stories inspired me to search out some alternatives.
If you enjoy motivational, self help books, you will definitely want to read It Ain’t Over … by Marlo Thomas. Of course, an added bonus is that I am a huge fan and it was wonderful to be able to read one of her books.
