“This is the most encompassing, yet practical book on transitioning career/life paths you will ever read.  Carolee and Marie have provided an amazing action guide to assist in making this “Shift” an exciting and well thought through process.  A must have!”

Dr. Ed Bice, III. Peak Performance Consultant and Author of: “Journey to Peak Experience” and “The Wisdom.”

"The road to retirement is filled with high hopes and good intentions, but all too often, those on that highway find only potholes and detours. For many, that important life decision triggers anxiety, self-doubt and indecision. In “Shifting Gears,” Langworthy and Duckworth provide a common sense pathway to a confident retirement decision. Instead of a "one size fits all cookie cutter" approach to retirement, they offer sage advice, planning information and direction for all individuals approaching retirement. It should be read early and often by pre-retirees contemplating one of life's major decisions."

George M. Reilly, Ed.D.

"Kudos on a great book and a new way of framing retirement, especially for those, who have never given thought to what they would best be suited for. A great "get off the couch and get moving" incentive. Fantastic!"

Marion DiGiammo, Mystic Connecticut

A must read. An extraordinary, mind-opening story of life and work after retirement. Possibilities are unlimited.

Jeanne Hawver, Retired Teacher & Business Owner

Shifting Gears is a veritable compendium of practical, insightful, realistic, and thoroughly 'user friendly' tips, techniques, processes, plans, and ideas for establishing and maintaining a comfortable, stable, life-affirming retirement specifically tailored to personal goals and needs.
