Product Description

Trusting the Journey of Creating the Work You Love

If you've ever wanted your own personal mentor, champion of your gifts, advocate for your dreams-your support system has arrived.

As an accomplished alternative-career coach and one who has walked the walk, Tama J. Kieves now shares the wisdom she has taught for years in her popular workshops. While examining each fear you might encounter on your journey to self-fulfillment, the author transforms the ideal of doing work you love into actuality.

Through personal stories of overcoming insecurities, Kieves recounts her experience of leaving behind life as a corporate lawyer to rediscover her buried creative self, focus on her writing abilities, and develop a soul-inspired livelihood.

Filled with solutions to the anxieties and roadblocks you may confront on your path, This Time I Dance! is for everyone who is unfulfilled in his or her current position and uncertain of the practical steps that should be followed in order to achieve his or her dream.

Author: Tama J. Kieves


"In the days of layoffs, cutbacks and tough competition in the job market, Kieves reminds readers that life may be better outside the boardroom. When the Harvard-educated lawyer took a rare vacation from her job at a corporate law firm, she realized that she couldn't bear the thought of returning. Watching the sun set over crashing waves, she resolved to lead the life she'd always been longing to live-that of a writer, teacher and creativity coach. This book of short, lively essays that Kieves wrote over the course of her journey of discovery and self-fulfillment includes anecdotes of embarrassing run-ins with former coworkers; disappointment or disbelief from relatives and mere acquaintances alike; and the challenge of paying the bills on an artist's salary ("Could I rent an apartment and buy Starbucks coffee on divine benevolence?"). Kieves triumphs again and again by trusting herself and not giving up. Undaunted by her own experiences with self-doubt and rejection letters, Kieves encourages her readers to "live unreasonably" and "step into the river" of their dream lives. This is not the most elegantly written book-Kieves can be a little breathless, a little cutesy-but it's an inspirational and honest guide to crafting a more creative life."
