Doing More Does Not Always Translate into Living Better

Our modern life is filled with multi-tasking, competing demands, obligations and stress. As you envision a status-quo future, you may wonder if this is all there is to life.

Thankfully, the answer to that question can be a resounding “No”! Enjoying your life is not out of reach or impossible; it is just the opposite. You deserve every opportunity to create a happy and fulfilled life.

Deirdre M McEachern used to be a stressed out corporate executive. After her company was sold, she faced a painful choice: continue to climb the ladder of success even though she was not happy OR take the biggest risk of her life and create a brand new life…. on her own terms.

Deirdre took that risk. She jumped into a new life and could not be happier with the results.

Today Deirdre coaches people all over the globe to make changes in their lives so that they can be happy and fulfilled. In this book, she shares processes, assessments, and tools that you can use right away to start transforming your life.
