Millions of midlife women have reached, or are in the process of reaching, a major transition in their lives. Are you one of them? Whether it be career, relationships, things you’ve tolerated for way too long, or a deep tug at your soul that’s pulling you toward something new and different, you may find it difficult to know where to start – or how to stay with it when it becomes challenging. This is why I wrote [R]evolution and why I created it in a workbook format so that you can take notes in it, write in the margins, do the exercises within the book or doodle to your heart’s content. It’s waiting for you. [R]evolution: A Soulful and Practical Guide to Creating the Life You Want.
On the surface, I’m the woman who looks like she has it all together. Successful career, happy family and wonderful friends. I’m a self help book junkie but this book seemed to speak to me directly. I’ve been contemplating a career change from my comfortable and well paid job to something that feeds my passion and the book has set me on the road to do that. I especially loved the purse exercise and was disappointed that I couldn’t do the fire exercise because I was on a plane. I need to figure out how to do it in an NYC apartment. Thank you Evelyn for great insights and more importantly for guidance on how to live a better life. – Michelle, SVP
Most women reach a turning point in their professional and/or personal lives when they wonder what’s the next step, the next path to pursue because the old way of doing things and the old path just aren’t working for them any longer. Evelyn has captured this moment beautifully in her book [R]evolution. But what’s more important than capturing it, is offering guidance about what to do about it! And this is what the author has done so very well. Theory is all fine and wonderful, but give us some practical suggestions about how to discover who we really are and really want to be and how to get there! [Revolution] does exactly that in easy to handle, easy to digest exercises any reader can incorporate and implement into her busy life. I’m a speaker, trainer, coach, and writer about self-empowerment for women, and this is a book I will be recommending to my clients who are beginning their empowerment journey. – Carol
So many times in our lives, we know we need change but have no clue where to start. Or, fear has paralyzed us from moving forward. I found Evelyn’s questions to be very thought provoking, and led me to a much deeper level of introspection than I had encountered before. She not only walked me through a process that gave me such a better understanding of myself, but I found the community she offered through the social media group she created, gave me a sense of not being alone. I would highly recommend this book for anyone navigating their way through a life change. – Laurie
I have read this book of Evelyn’s twice….still I learn from it! It’s a book I call my go to book and pick it up several times a week and get the insight and encouragement I need as a 51 year old women. It is written with truth and power and true life changing experiences by Evelyn. One of the best self help books bar none written by a lady with a true heart! I love the feel of this spiral bound book each time it’s in my hands. – Julie
A brave offering from Evelyn for today’s courageous woman that is ready to step into a richer life. Written with the middle aged woman in mind but valuable for women of all ages. This is far more than a book. It is indeed a guide that when followed will not disappoint. Highly recommended. – Kathi Laughman
Several months ago, I ran across a Facebook page by Evelyn about a new book she had coming out: [R]evolution: A Soulful & Practical Guide to Creating the Life You Want. I ordered it in hardback, which is quite a commitment for me, but it looked like exactly what I’d been needing…If you’re feeling the need for change, in the middle of change, anticipating a new beginning or hoping for one, this is the book for you.
Evelyn’s book is helping me to deal with all the changes I’ve experienced recently – getting divorced after a 30 year marriage being the biggest. But even more than that, it’s helping me challenge the beliefs about myself that have kept me stuck. I feel like a giant weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I feel younger at 55 than I did at 20, and I’m learning how to treat myself with love.
The book is aimed at “middle-aged” women who want more than what their current lives are offering them. Perhaps the children have left home, or a relationship has gone bad, or there’s just a niggling but persistent feeling of something missing. No matter what the cause, [R]evolution can help. Evelyn has, as they say, “been there and done that.” She writes about the path that leads you toward the door to changing your life and holds the door open when you want to crawl back into your old life. Because change is hard work, [R]evolution is a workbook. There are questions to answer, exercises to do, and rituals to help you leave your old life behind and embrace your authentic self.
And, perhaps most important, there is fun in my life. I haven’t had this much fun in, well, ever. I’m grateful that the Universe pointed me in the direction of Evelyn and her book. If you’re a “middle-aged” woman ready to face the past, honor it, leave the part of it behind that no longer serves you well, and find the best parts of who you are, this is the book for you. – Sanjee
