  • A Bonza Life – The Story of a Baby Boomer

    I am a Baby Boomer. Born and bred in Brisbane, Australia, I lived a very average Boomer life in a rabbit warren of a house in Auchenflower with my returned WW2 soldier dad, stay at home mum and my five siblings.

    We walked to school in those days and stayed and played within a 2 mile radius of our home with other Boomer families for twenty years before venturing out into the world with other Boomer mates and eventually started our own families to produce another generation.

    Historians will be surprised how simple a life we lived in the Boomer suburbs with few pressures and plenty of support but it was our generation’s lifestyle and it certainly allowed for a vivid imagination to entertain ourselves as there was no TV initially and little to do and see until our teen years.

    I have long since adapted to a changed world, which I am sure we created by liberating society in many ways but it has been an interesting journey with school failures, pop revolutions, clashes with police over Vietnam when I was bashed by them and ultimately ruined lives over the high expectations of the ideal world we boomers envisaged.

    As an average boomer I tried to influence the thinking of many Australian and New Zealand politicians with inter-generational thinking through Grey Skills and BONZA and was an advocate for boomer reform long before we truly became the nuisance generation.

    My book is a record of those times and I invite you to review my Boomer life in a much simpler time as an average Boomer and I am sure will encourage Boomers to reflex on their lives. You will also witness my frustration in trying to outlaw ageism in the workplace through advocating to politicians in Australia and NZ on behalf of all mature age workers by demonstrating in front of the Australian Parliament in Canberra and through the Bonza Report in 2018.

  • A Student of the Choir

    The sole purpose of this book is to help us become the best version of ourselves that we are totally capable of being. It is about following our passions, goals and dreams in order to create a life that we want and deserve. This book aims to help us understand ourselves and become the person we truly want to be throughout life’s journey. Most people will follow and do what they think they should be doing in life because it’s what is expected, or because it’s the social norm.

    Rarely do we stop to consider our passions, life purpose or what we actually want to do with our lives. Many of us do something just because we think it’s something we should be doing, when in reality it’s something that we don’t want to do. Often because of this, many people will live unhappy and unfulfilled lives and never know or achieve what they truly want.

    Therefore, this book aims to stray from those expectations and offer a different direction and path in life. This path is all about following our own goals, passions and ambitions and making them a reality whilst becoming the best man or women we can be in the process. It is the path of personal authenticity and self-fulfilment.

    “A Student of Choir” is a book about us as individuals being pupils of life whilst the Creator is the preacher. In this way, the choir is a metaphor for life where we are merely students of such a wonderful gift and we shall never be more than that. Only the preacher is the master of the orchestration. Therefore we will never master anything, but it is through this revelation that we will continually grow and learn as individuals. If we are not masters of anything, there is still more to learn.

    Thus, this book is based on the premise that we can do no more than our best in this life. We will stumble and we will fall but if we focus on our mission and purpose, we will continue to grow upward. We constantly grow by being authentic in who we are and pursue and achieve what we were put on this earth to do.

  • Just Say Know – The Inconvenient Truth About Drugs * Part 1

    The topic of drugs is almost unrivaled when it comes to generating controversy. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to sort fact from fiction, to talk to our children, and understand why drugs exist in society the way they do today.

    Just Say Know covers everything you need to know about drugs, including the checkered history of many drugs, why we choose to ban some yet promote others, and the challenges that society face if we want to have a more pragmatic approach in reducing harm. Part one of Just Say Know looks at all of the areas we have gone wrong, where we continue to go wrong, and why.

    Part two covers what we can do as a society to dig ourselves out of this hole. This book provides parents with what they need to tell their children, teachers and lecturers with what they need to tell their students, and what society needs to tell themselves as well who they elect.

  • Lifetime Money

    Like a player in a casino, you are programmed to inevitably lose your money, assets, time and effort. Despite this pessimistic view, learning the rules of the game and making your own luck is still within your grasp.

    Do you feel that you are lacking ‘something’ or have unmet expectations in life? Have you ever wondered if working and earning money is simply a means to an end?

    Lee Jae Kwon, author of Design Your Future and Attitude Makes Opportunities, has spent a significant portion of his life contemplating the links between happiness and financial success. Lifetime Money shares the lessons he has learned in the hope that it will help readers to prepare for their future and realize their dreams.

    This insightful guide focuses on the concept of Lifetime Money (LTM), a specific amount of money one must calculate that will ensure a comfortable future, post retirement. It delves into the current economic systems that limit the achievement of one’s LTM, discusses how to increase one’s value through self-management, outlines ten working styles, and provides advice on how to achieve LTM through five essential factors.

    Although achieving Lifetime Money is an essential factor in the pursuit of happiness, Lee Jae Kwon also reminds us that making money is simply a means to an end and must be considered in the wider context of what you truly value in life.

  • Petal – The Other Side of Suicide

    ‘I often wonder just how I managed to survive the loss of my Mark to suicide – the pain almost crippled me in so many ways. I have always been a believer that everything happens for a reason… but THIS… Suicide… there was no rhyme and no reason it seemed. Suicide always leaves you with so many WHY’S… which led me on a journey to find out WHY… bringing more pain at each discovery.’

    In 1998, Tanya French was a busy and happy wife and mother of three, doing just what every other mother does – to do her utmost to give her family the best life they could possibly have – whilst simultaneously managing a highly successful international company with her husband, Mark.

    Then, her world and that of her family changed dramatically when Mark suddenly and tragically took his own life, sending her family, friends, and a whole town into total shock. This man – this outgoing, vivacious, talented, funny, life of the party – had ended his own life, prompting Tanya to set out on a journey to understand why he would choose to end his life so tragically and so violently and why he would leave those that loved him so much.

  • Rainbow People

    We live in a world of individual differences. Yet when you take a closer look at anyone at all, you find that, essentially, we are all the same. This book tells you why that is.

    The author shares with you the informative and entertaining stories of her life work journey with disabled people. She relates how her path was ‘intercepted’ by a special group of individuals early in her career and how that experience led to a change in her direction.

    Her messages will not only uplift and inspire you as a support worker or carer, you will feel a sense of pride to take on those roles. The disabled Barbara met along her path will ‘show and tell’ you how to focus on their abilities – often without saying a word. Yet with their collective ‘voice’, they can teach you more about yourself as well.

    For those of you who feel ignorant of what it means to be Intellectually Disable, then you will be pleasantly surprised when you meet many of them in this thought provoking and joyful book. Each individual invites you to join them through their own stories with a promise to gladden your heart and put a smile on your face.

    Life is full of twists and turns, roadblocks and detours, but there are no shortcuts in this life. With the help of our friends and family and a few signs left by our mentors before us, we learn to find our way.

    My life so far has been one hell of a journey and I was able to cope, survive, and ultimately conquer my fears, using the skills I acquired as a government consultant and community counsellor.

    After writing my life’s story, A Bonza Life: The Story of a Baby Boomer, the positive reception I received impelled me to share the steps I have presented to thousands of baby boomers over the last twenty years to help them prepare for a meaningful future.

    In this book, I outline a map for boomers to prepare mentally and financially for an extended career, re-entry into the workforce, and a retirement that is longer than expected and well-overdue.
