What’s Next for You?

by Robert and Patricia Gussin

Need Some Pointers in Making the Leap from the Working World to Retirement?

What’s Next . . . For You? is the incredible story of Robert and Patricia Gussin, two retirees who watched with glee as long, successful careers in science and medicine gave way to writing, publishing, and winemaking. Much more than a memoir and anything but a how-to-start-a-business manual, What’s Next . . . For You? is a clear, easy-to-understand guide to reinventing yourself from real experts—two people who did it themselves and lived to tell the glorious tale.

Through the engaging, first-person, he said/she said narrative, Robert and Patricia Gussin deliver an inspirational guide filled with advice on why it’s never too late to reinvent yourself, and why doing what you love (and loving what you do) is always within reach.

A must-read tale of joyfully switching gears, changing careers, and overcoming paralysis by analysis, What’s Next . . . For You? takes the mystery out of that all-too-common question of how to get from where you are to where you want to be.

What’s Next . . . For You? is a book for two groups of people. Those who haven’t retired—and those who have. An inspiring story of two remarkable people who reinvented the meaning of being retired.”

“There are many possible paths to take in retirement. The Gussins have chosen to be adventurers and completely change their lives. Their story is compelling and for those ready for a major change, this book can serve as your inspiration.”
—Nancy K. Schlossberg, best-selling author of Revitalizing Retirement: Finding Your Identity, Relationships and Purpose

What’s Next . . . For You? is not a “do this, do this, do this” type of methodology cookbook. What’s important is their underlying message that opportunities and adventure are out there, and ‘retirement’ does not have to mean playing bingo or bridge with your friends all day.”
―Duffbert’s Random Musings
