Publisher's Summary

A unique narrative on a unique time offering solace to people nearing retirement. Poised for Retirement is not your parents' retirement guide, nor is it a financial planning guide; rather, it's the relatable story of an ordinary working woman reflecting on her life and career.

Written with humor, compassion, and poignancy, Nayer's poetic prose is also inspirational. Easy to implement visualizations and breathing and sleep techniques are offered at the end of each chapter. Listeners will gain insight and wisdom as the author learns to create a new and healthier life during this important transition.
