Billy Crystal, Actor, Comedian, and Grandfather states “For anyone thinking of retiring and changing his or her life—this is the book for you.” The Retirement Boom: An All-Inclusive Guide to Money, Life, and Health in Your Next Chapter shows how retirement does not mean an end… rather it’s a reinvention or reshaping of where your life is going from that point forward. Co-author Nancy Bearg shares her thoughts today on how to make the transition from the daily grind.
The environmental problems we face today are significant. So it’s somewhat natural to assume that the solutions that will have an impact on those problems must themselves be significant, must be big. But in Two Percent Solutions for the Planet: 50 Low-Cost, Low-Tech, Nature-Based Practices for Combatting Hunger, Drought, and Climate Change, conservationist and author Courtney White argues that many of the solutions to our environmental challenges that can make a real difference, are actually small low-cost, easy-to-implement strategies that can be employed today.

Four Boomer professionals who have walked the walk and transformed themselves from corporate executives, consultants, executive coaches, and national security policy experts into a range of new careers that more closely hew to their passions, have penned a practical guide for those looking at the next phase of life…The Retirement Boom: An All-Inclusive Guide to Money, Life, and Health in Your Next Chapter. Nancy Bearg is one of those four and she joins us today to take a better look at retirement, how you can reinvent into new work, understand what is changing in today’s workforce, and most importantly, renegotiate your new life at home. Nancy has had a distinguished career in national security, including as National Security Advisor to the Vice President of the United States. From the White House to Capitol Hill, the Pentagon, and the non-profit sector, she has held high-level policy positions. She authored five books in her field for the Aspen Institute, and a number of defense- related studies. She has reinvented herself along the way and is doing so now, as she balances consulting, teaching leadership at George Washington University, and her personal life.
Through fifty innovative, engaging success stories, author and conservationist Courtney White hopes Two Percent Solutions for the Planet: 50 Low-Cost, Low-Tech, Nature-Based Practices for Combatting Hunger, Drought, and Climate Change inspires urban-dwellers, farmers, ranchers, or anyone lamenting the scope of the environmental problems we face tiday and the apparent lack of action to correct them. Courtney uses his book to help connect the dots between distant communities that have taken concrete action and those who have hesitated. He is a former archaeologist and Sierra Club activist who dropped out of the “conflict” industry in 1997 to cofound the Quivira Coalition, a nonprofit dedicated to building bridges between ranchers, conservationists and others around practices that improve ecological and economic resilience in the western landscape.
