Baby Boomer women have spent decades suppressing their own wants and desires, and losing themselves in the expectations and demands of culture, parents, partners, and children, working hard to please and care for almost everyone but themselves.

About the Author


Dianna is a shining example of how to get the most out of life as a “seasoned” woman. At a time when most of us look to relax in front of the TV, she is out in our Alberta communities creating a dynasty! And in her “spare time,” she turns her time and talents to family and friends, graphic design, painting, biking, cross-country skiing and fulfilling a host of volunteer commitments. Though Dianna is now a successful entrepreneur and inspiration to many, she had to overcome many barriers to get there. Raised by grandparents in a dysfunctional family, Dianna was shy and lacking in self-confidence as a child and young adult. She married at 20, but tragically her new husband was killed in a explosion within a year. She remarried a few years later and was blessed with two children who are the light of her life. But the marriage was rocky and further eroded Dianna’s self-esteem. A serious health problem (tumour on her vertebrae) in her 40s brought things to a head and the marriage ended. Rather than wallow in despair, Bowes decided to take control of her life. She recreated herself into the woman she always wanted to be by focusing on personal development and coaching. When her 50th birthday was approaching, she started Fabulous@50 (a community for seasoned woman) and has never looked back. Now confident and poised, Bowes is dedicated to helping other women through their life changes and challenges. Bowes has won numerous awards for her work: a 2014 Leader of Tomorrow Award from Business in Edmonton, 2011 YWCA Woman of Distinction Award (Turning Point category) The 2014 New York Stevie Awards in two categories: Women Helping Women (Bronze) and Best Event (Gold). 2015 New York Stevie Award – Top Canadian Entrepreneur (Bronze).

Dianna Lee Bowes puts in writing what a lot of women my age are looking for – what to do next. Whether it is go out and do something that you have always wanted to do or “re-experience” something that has happened before, Bowes puts out there a lot of ideas for refreshing your life.
A lot of women are thrown into midlife in a tizzy by divorce. People will stick around until the kids are grown. Then, the last child heads off to college. After that, the husband leaves. You know those life quizzes on the internet that rank stress. You’ve just topped out the stress level of your life. Do not let the stress overtake you. Take your life in your own hands and go out and discover what is next.
Bowes asks a lot of hard questions in this book – questions about what you are thinking, where you want to go, what you are grateful for. There is space to write your answers right there. While I am a huge fan of e-books, I would definitely tell you to get a hard copy of this book so you can write in it.
You should pick up this book if you are a Boomer woman floundering in your life. You will realize that “if not now… when?” should have been a question you were asking yourself all along.
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
