The Back Forty

7 Essential Embraces to Launch Life's Radical Second Half

The Back Forty is an epic, life-transformational, and seminar-in-a-box message inciting innovative midlife possibilities. It asks and answers the trajectory-shifting questions: What if the first half of life was only R&D, research, and development, for your best half/second half? What if you have yet to do what you came here to do?

Synopsis

Over 40% of the American population are beyond the age of forty, and that second half of life includes some important choices. Erik Erikson, the late renowned psychoanalyst and researcher into stages of life, points to the ages of 35 to 65 and on as times in which individuals must choose between generativity versus stagnation and integrity versus despair.

What does this mean for the average person? It means that in approaching and moving through midlife, everyone must choose whether their life and trajectory is set in stone or whether real and lasting leveling-up of one’s “lot in life” is truly possible.

Has the first half of life, with all of its conditioning, challenges or “failure to launch” set limits on who we can be and what we can do, or is truly anything still possible for us? The Back Forty says possibility lives!

The Back Forty: 7 Essential Embraces to Launch Life’s Radical Second Half is an epic, life-transformational, and seminar-in-a-box message inciting innovative midlife possibilities. It asks and answers the trajectory-shifting question “What if you have yet to be who you came here to be and do what you came here to do, and what if your biggest game is yet to come?”

Through an engaging series of authentic, deeply personal stories, innovative exercises and insight-inducing activities, readers are guided through a method and mindset to decipher life’s Front Forty into a formula for a freed-up and radical second half/best half of life. Playing off a metaphor, the book posits that the second half of life is akin to “the back forty” of a farm: a huge, uncultivated patch of land with infinite growth potential.

Darrell Gurney, the author, is an executive, entrepreneur and career coach, licensed spiritual counselor and previously published author. Over his 30-year career as a coach, advisor and licensed spiritual counselor, he has supported thousands of individuals to transform their life, career, and business trajectories. He gives keynotes, teleseminars, and workshops for MBA programs as well as professional and community organizations; has been quoted and interviewed by major publications such as Forbes, US News & World Report, and The Wall Street Journal; and has published Amazon bestsellers in the fields of careers and passions.

Most important, he’s a baby boomer with a message of hope and inspiration for those approaching midlife and beyond. Drawing from his coaching and careers expertise as well as his spiritual and personal-development passions, this message is about recovering and discovering play, passion and purpose at any age. . .no matter what you’ve been through.

The book was inspired by Darrell’s own personal experience. At age 40, he found himself broke amidst a career shift while also mired in a half-million-dollar custody suit over his son. He’d never felt more like a loser. Yet, in a moment of inspiration, he was struck by a radical notion he heard inside his heart, “What if the first half of my life has simply been R & D, research and development, setting me up to be who I came here to be and do what I came here to do in the second half? What if my biggest game is yet to come?”

This notion became the springboard for a personal journey which became The Back Forty. It enabled him to begin living his second half of life markedly free from what had come before: a truly radical possibility at midlife.

Through this Back Forty paradigm, readers are empowered to see themselves as the solely responsible designers of their entire life, past and present, with any sense of victimhood compassionately dissolved. This revolutionary and causal perspective provides the necessary freedom and power to similarly, but now consciously, cause the future they truly want.

The book presents a set of life elements to be, as the title states, “embraced” so the reader can open up to a new and larger definition of themselves within which their unique formula of self-expression arises. By exploring and embracing these seven elements:

Your Past
Your Present
Your Gifts
Your Values
Your Initiation
Your Purpose
A Presence

readers will find relief, renewal and purposeful direction in becoming freed up and fired up, for a radical second half: a full, fresh and out-of-the-box remainder of life that wasn’t "just going to happen anyway."

As more and more individuals reach the age of “What’s next?” after kids, career shake-ups, divorces, and various forms of mid-life crises – and especially during these current, extraordinary and upending times of domestic and world crises – this message and formula for embodying Frank Sinatra’s words “the best is yet to come, and won’t it be fine” is timelier than ever.

The Back Forty: 7 Essential Embraces to Launch Life’s Radical Second Half brings renewed meaning and purpose to beleaguered boomers and the midlife seekers who face a rapidly changing world. When it feels like the world is standing still is the perfect time to change it. Wayne Dyer spirituality meets Richard Nelson Bolles career direction meets Rick Warren purposeful inquiry.

Sales arguments

  • The Baby Boomer demographic is currently the second largest market in the US (just overtaken by the millennials) and in 2017 over 50% of the US population was over the age of 50. Boomers currently control about 70% of the disposable income in the US and over the next 20 years their spending is expected to increase by 58% ($4.74 trillion annually). If a segment of the population has the most means to grow and develop, this is it.
  • Author is a 30-year Life/Career/Business/Executive Coach and Licensed Spiritual Counselor.
  • Author has produced two previous books with top endorsements and Forewords such as Harvey Mackay, Keith Ferrazzi, Dr. Ivan Misner, Mark Victor Hansen, T. Harv Eker and Joyce Lain Kennedy.
  • Author has social media and mailing lists reach of 54,000.
  • Author is a regular speaker for MBA, EMBA, FEMBA and Alumni programs, Rotary, church and other community groups, and is a quoted and hosted expert on national media and television in major markets.

  • Life Reimagined: The Science, Art and Opportunity of Midlife, Barbara Bradley Hagerty, Riverhead, 2017, 464 p., $16.00, paperback. An award-winning journalist, who spent nearly 20 years as a correspondent for NPR, highlights new scientific research which explodes the fable that midlife is a time when things start to go downhill for everybody.

  • Hidden Blessings: Midlife Crisis as a Spiritual Awakening, Jett Psaris, PhD., Sacred River, 2017, 278 p., $14.99, paperback.

  • It's Never Too Late to Begin Again: Discovering Creativity and Meaning at Midlife and Beyond, Julia Cameron, TarcherPerigee, 2016, 304 p., $17.00, paperback. Bestselling author of The Artist’s Way and related books, Cameron turns her eye to a segment of the population that, ironically, while they have more time to be creative, are often reluctant or intimidated by the creative process. Cameron shows readers that retirement can, in fact, be the most rich, fulfilling, and creative time of their lives

Audience

"The Back Forty: 7 Essential Embraces to Launch Life's Radical Second Half" appeals to readers in midlife transitions, including career, business, relationships, health, financial, etc., as well as spiritual and purpose seekers in all age groups. Freud taught that the two greatest existential human needs are meaningful work and satisfying relationships. Midlife “awareness” itself begins from one’s mid-thirties to mid-fifties. The ensuing career, relationship and other challenges and desires of midlife grow ever more poignant for decades from then on. Therefore, the market for this book will easily span a thirty- to forty-year segment of the population.

Advance praise

“Through his spiritual daring, Gurney sheds light upon the vital subject of discovering one’s inner wholeness at any age and stage on life’s journey. He moves his readers into a revolution in consciousness: loving ourselves for who we are, for the innate capacities of the heart and soul.”
–Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Life Visioning and Founder of The Agape International Spiritual Center

“The Back Forty is yet another testament to the Unstoppable spirit in each of us. Darrell Gurney intimately shares his own midlife quest for purpose, stepping beyond fear and doubt to pave the way for each of us to have our second half of life be the best half. This is required reading if you want the next phase of your life to be the best part ever!”
–Cynthia Kersey, bestselling author of Unstoppable and Founder of The Unstoppable Foundation

“Darrell Gurney tilled the soil of his personal experience and harvested an inspiring process for embracing challenges and living life to the fullest. In The Back Forty, Gurney offers a crucial counter to the prevailing pessimism about aging and shows his readers the best is yet to come!”
–Margit Cox Henderson, Ph.D., author of Optimistic Aging: from Midlife to the Good Life, an Action Plan

IngramSpark logo IngramSpark

100 copies • Completed manuscript.
Ingram is a rather large company with several different divisions and supplies books to bookstores and libraries in over 200 countries around the world. Ingram also has a print on demand digital printing company, Lightning Source. IngramSpark is the platform that combines those two services together. At IngramSpark, we work with authors and independent publishers to print their books for orders they need (no minimum order) and we have a way to list the books as available for sale to all of Ingram’s 39,000+ customers- distributors, bookstores, retail outlets, libraries, etc., so you never miss a sale. You would provide us with the print-ready digital files (one for the cover and one for the interior) and we print the books as they are sold through our distribution partner’s websites. We pay you for those sales approximately 90 days later. The compensation you earn is based on the retail price you set, minus the wholesale discount you offer our distribution partners, minus the print cost.

      Glenn,
      Thank you brother.

      IF you'd be up for doing something that could create more traction through an "influencer interview" like they describe in item #6 in this article, let me know. I'd love for us to engage in playing together in some way.

      After all, you are an influencer.
