I’m coming out! I want the world to know…
Hi there! Terri here.
I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to be true to myself and my inner passion—against all odds.
Read further if you’re so inclined to hear
what I’ve discovered about myself,
what I’m doing about it,
and most importantly, what this means for you!
For the past 20 years, I’ve been a ghostwriter, helping individuals write their non-fiction publications—primarily consisting of memoirs, motivational rags-to-riches-life-transforming stories, how-to books, and business material. It’s been as rewarding for me as it has been for each of those authors!
In January 2020, after bidding farewell to my father, and just prior to that, spending the last four months of his life observing, from close proximity, the trials of one’s final stages of life, I felt a nudging. So, I afforded myself a six-week self-exploration venture, traveling and visiting with friends from the West Coast to the East Coast. During that time, the nudging was confirmed.
I’m very sad for this moment but very relieved at the same time. I’m leaving a comfort zone that, as of late, had become a huge weight—mainly because the writing (no pun intended) was on the wall but I chose to ignore it. The “IT” is the fact that after 20 years, I’m hanging up my GHOSTWRITING hat!
One of the confirmations I received along that recent trip was that I love researching to connect the dots to get answers; perhaps more than I love writing. It’s probably why I did so well in law school (3.98), with its plentiful writing and research requirements. I feel I can help many people with my thirst for researching and my passion for sharing advantageous information from a bioethical, patient advocacy and elder-care standpoint that I don’t see addressed enough. Also, now is the time for me to dust off the dozen or so half-written books of my own that, due to writing other people’s books, were kept on the back burner for later. Well…
LATER is NOW
Later is now! And now is what I’ve coined as “4th quarter living.”
Who’s experiencing 4th quarter living? Baby boomers! That market-driving, influential group of people who are 72 million strong here in America. Born between the years 1946 and 1967, we were the reason sales of Gerber baby food spiked when that influx of births started after World War II. From there, the wave resulted in a boom in Buster Brown toddler shoes when we started walking. Then, Radio Flyer, makers of that classic red metal wagon, benefited from us pulling our siblings and playmates up and down the street. In 1964, after we began turning 16, the muscle-car, Mustang, came onto the scene. Several years later, dorms on college campuses became filled to the brim and overflowing with record number admissions. And who can forget the housing boom of the ’80s, as we began to marry and settle into our first homes?
I say all that to demonstrate the power of this group of people. A group that is now retired or reaching retirement, and more than ever, experiencing loved ones dying; heightening the reality of their own mortality with a need to get their “final wishes” in order. Sadly, from my on-going non-scientific research, too many are choosing to “wing it” when it comes to getting their life in total order—physically, financially, economically, mentally and spiritually. Some boomers remain on the sideline benches of life and still others have not even suited up for the game!
Yet, it’s already 4th quarter.
LIFE by DESIGN not by DEFAULT
When the death of a loved one occurs, grieving family members and friends are often faced with a barrage of questions and decisions—from legal and financial information to final wishes and funeral arrangements. Their loved one’s desires are being addressed posthumously and decisions made quickly, all while under great emotional duress.
In today’s society, we operate at such a constant rush that typically, people do not stop to ponder the importance of this information until it is too late. Death is an inevitable event, folks, none of us are getting out of here alive. So, why continue to NOT be adequately prepared simply because it’s a sensitive subject? Too often, not addressing the financial aspect of these matters is leading families to resort to crowd-funding for the funeral needs of their deceased. This shouldn’t be the new normal! Someone has to help the masses prepare properly—and it might as well be me.
The resources I’ve put together for the benefit of everyone—particularly baby boomers—constitute essential needs. I’ve become an affiliate with some of these organizations, certified and even licensed with others, as the best way to offer you, and millions like you, a road map for living your life by design, not by default.
