Robbie Frazer FRSA asks the question “What should we be doing with the rest of our lives?” and invites people to share their experience of finding work that fulfills us once we hit middle age. The book he’s writing will comprise a series of interviews with people who are facing mid-life career change or have already experienced it, to volunteer to be interviewed for the book.

Studies say we are at our most dissatisfied with life at age 46 to 55. This midlife ennui, often called the crisis, comes with a feeling that there is a lack of meaning in what we do leaving us unfulfilled. 

Robbie Frazer FRSA is interviewing people in this position, whatever their age, to investigate our emotional journeys through this time, for a book to be published next year.

He’ll be drawing on common themes: what is the source of our sense of frustration with the ways our lives are panning out?; how do we try and fix it?; and the success or failure in renewing our purpose and even our identity.

Would you be happy to be interviewed? Confidentiality is, of course, assured. 

If you want to find out more, contact Robbie: [email protected] or @RobbieFrazer to start the conversation before 30 March 2018.
