About the Book
Somewhere between a memoir and a how-to, Hiding in My Pajamas is a uniquely refreshing funny and candid look at the emotional costs of retirement. Closing that work-life career door behind you as you start Chapter 2 of your life, while working out the emotional aspects, has become the best kept secret with professional women today.
Retiring from a successful career as partner in a commercial architecture firm, Becky shares her own personal journey as she started a new life, 1,600 miles from her home, while struggling with the emotional stereotypes that deal with retirement and aging. She exposes the fears and anxieties, along with the marital turbulence, and financial challenges she faced along the way. Utilizing wit and wisdom, she bares her soul and her marriage to encourage women to try and not hang on to the past. For women 35 and older, Becky shares her “Plan” for a secure financial and emotional retirement. She outlines strategies to get your plan in place, sharing not only her story, but heartfelt stories of women who have tried to stop the runaway freight train of emotions as they close the door on their careers. Exploring why ”this wasn’t what I planned”, she offers the courage to identify a brand new you as you joyously move on to a different life with new purpose and meaning. Finally someone has published a brutally candid look at a 25 year plan to retirement from a woman’s perspective that resonates with honesty.
