Fearlessly Facing Midlife and Beyond is a must read for anyone thinking about rebuilding their life at any point, and starting over with confidence, no apologies, and taking the first steps on a new journey. Go ahead… Don’t be afraid to make a big splash!” ~Julie Moran, Former host of Entertainment Tonight, Wide World of Sports, and the current podcast Empower Midlife
“Amy Schmidt has nailed it. It’s as though she got inside my head (and really every woman’s head) and pulled out all the voices that stop us from trying something new or even giving ourselves a pat on the back. Amy knows these demons and she gives wonderful advice on how to not only face them but blow them out of the water.” ~Laurie Gelman, Award winning author of the series, Class Mom & You’ve been volunteered.
You’re Never Too Old and It’s Never Too Late
You’re entering midlife—the “big five-oh” may be looming or may have come and gone. You find yourself standing on the edge of the high dive wishing you could cannonball with fearless exhilaration like you did when you were ten. But you’re frozen. What’s holding you back? Fear of the unknown? Procrastination? Self-doubt? Fear of others judging you? Fear of failing? Amy Schmidt has been there, done that, and still doing some of it.
In Cannonball, Fearlessly Facing Midlife and Beyond, she shares her personal stories, and those of other women, to help arm us with insights and inspiration to cannonball fearlessly into the rest of our lives with the biggest splash possible. Amy is the real deal—disarmingly open, honest, and relatable. She sometimes feels fat. She can be a perfectionist. She can procrastinate and she sometimes forgets to love herself. But as she says, “I am a work in progress,” and most days she feels “absolufrickinlutely” amazing. Amy is the BFF you want climbing each rung of that ladder with you and encouraging you to cannonball into the next best phase of your life.
