You, Even Better: How to Recharge, Reimagine, and Reinvent Your Career and Your Life

Kate White

It used to be that people thought of reinventing themselves in their fifties or sixties, but that urge can occur at any time, particularly in the disruptive world we live in today. Maybe you’re where you always wanted to be, but it suddenly doesn’t feel like a good fit anymore. Or you love what you do, but you’re being pushed out because of turmoil in your field or company. Or maybe you just feel a restlessness and desire for change. Six years ago, I reinvented my career (by choice), transitioning from editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, the #1 women’s magazine brand in the world to full time New York Times bestselling author of mysteries and psychological thrillers. I adore my new career and the freedom it affords me.
