These are all things that we have to deal with when going through a career change. What is most difficult is deciding to make the change, especially when you are good at what you do, and wonder whether you should just stick it out in an unhappy-albeit well-paid-environment instead of taking a risk and starting over doing something you love. In This Time I Dance!

Overview

These are all things that we have to deal with when going through a career change. What is most difficult is deciding to make the change, especially when you are good at what you do, and wonder whether you should just stick it out in an unhappy-albeit well-paid-environment instead of taking a risk and starting over doing something you love. In This Time I Dance!, Tama Kieves shares the inspiring wisdom that led her from being a successful Harvard lawyer to an even more successful writer and life coach. The best part? She's happy with her career!

We all look for what will make us happy in life, but we don't always make the choices that we should when it comes to sustaining that happiness. Tama Kieves shows how to do just that: how to stay happy and employed doing something you love, and what it takes to stop being a stressed-out worker and make peace with your career-and, most important, with yourself. Filled with solutions to the anxieties and roadblocks you may confront on your path, This Time I Dance! is for all those who are unfulfilled at work and uncertain of the practical steps that they should follow to achieve their dreams.

From page one, Tama Kieves has me glued to the page, fascinated to read a story that sounds like my dreams! With humor, honesty, and wonderful detail, Tama describes the search for meaning in her life, the quest to find out WHO I AM, WHERE DO I BELONG. WHAT DO I REALLY WANT TO DO WITH THE REST OF MY LIFE? I could not put this book, down, I cried from pure joy, reading her description of letting go of comfort, to really find a life worth living. This book came to me at the perfect time in my life. I know I'm not crazy, to listen to the voices inside that say, "Go ahead, let go of all you know, get ready for the freedom to have a life of your dreams!" Tama's style of writing was one of the most entertaining in "self helps" I've ever read. It was FUN reading her story and FUN imagining how I might now, also re-write my own life.
