A modern fiction novel with very nonfiction principles and values. It's a parable, a guiding story about the struggle we all face when looking for our passion and happiness in life. If you've ever believed that you're destined for something great, and if you're constantly searching for your purpose, then this novel is for you. Also, if you enjoy observational stories that are chock full of drugs, sex, high-stakes business, money lost, and love found, then this novel is especially for you. --- David is misunderstood. By everyone, so it seems. The millennial business enthusiast has failed at almost every career he's tried. Searching for his life's meaning and enamored by the startup culture in Silicon Valley, David jumps headlong into a job at a small, albeit growing, business. He soon realizes, however, that while the company is considered a "startup," it's as unfulfilling as any corporate job he's had, and he chooses to pursue his own entrepreneurial venture, believing that if he can become a famous business owner, he'll find happiness. But not if his previous employer has anything to say about it. In true Silicon Valley fashion, David's former boss finds out about his new company and threatens legal action on the grounds that his former employee is in violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, a federal crime. Dave is faced with a dilemma - stay and fight or turn and run? And ultimately, if entrepreneurship isn't making him happy, what will? --- What people are saying: "Evan approaches his content with careful planning so his publications, whether they be fiction or nonfiction, are fun to read and provide real-world insight and advice. As the Content & Community leader for EOFire I've really enjoyed reading his engaging and valuable stories." - Kate Erickson, Entrepreneur on Fire's Content & Community Leader "What's it like to be young and smart in San Francisco with a beautiful girlfriend and a promising startup? For millennial Dave LeBlanc, it's hell, and you won't want to stop reading until you find out if Dave self-destructs or saves himself. Author Evan Tarver writes with humor and authority about the generation that seems poised at the forefront of a revolution one minute and teetering at the brink of disaster the next. 'There are a ton of lessons to be learned through my failures, ' Dave says at one point. Read Life in Twenty-Something and you'll see what he means." - Susan Bono, author of What Have We Here: Essays about Keeping House and Finding Home and founding editor of Tiny Lights: A Journal of Personal Narrative. "Evan is a past guest of our California Connection radio show and he's spoken eloquently regarding passion and purpose in life and the workforce. I always look forward to reading his stories and parables on careers and the pursuit of happiness because they provide real value." - Maureen Ennor, co-host of California Connection, finance and business talk radio with Bob Lang of CNBC "Evan's written an adventure story that keeps your eyes glued to the page and keeps you wondering what's going to happen next " - Leisa Peterson, Mindful Money Coach, WealthClinic.com

The midtwenties through the midthirties can be a time of difficult transition: the security blankets of college and parents are gone, and it’s suddenly time to make far-reaching decisions about career, investments, and adult identity. When author Christine Hassler experienced what she calls the "twenties triangle", she found that she was not alone. In fact, an entire generation of young women is questioning their choices, unsure if what they’ve been striving for is what they really want. They’re eager to set a new course for their lives, even if that means giving up what they have. Hassler herself left a fast-moving career that wasn’t right for her and instead took the risk of starting her own business.

“A godsend to anyone searching for, but struggling to find, true love in their lives.” —Kristin Neff, PhD, author of Self-Compassion "Empowering and compassionate, and its lessons are universal." —Publishers Weekly Real love starts with you. In order to attract a life partner and build a healthy intimate relationship, you must first become a good partner to yourself. This book offers twenty invaluable lessons that will help you explore and commit to your own emotional and psychological well-being so you can be ready, resilient, and confident in love. Many of us enter into romantic relationships full of expectation and hope, only to be sorely disappointed by the realization that the partner we’ve selected is a flawed human being with their own neuroses, history, and desires. Most relationships end because one or both people haven’t done the internal work necessary to develop self-awareness and take responsibility for their own experiences. We’ve all heard “You can’t love anyone unless you love yourself,” but amid life’s distractions and the myth of perfect, romantic love, how exactly do you do that? In Loving Bravely, psychologist, professor and relationship expert Alexandra H. Solomon introduces the idea of relational self-awareness, encouraging you to explore your personal history to gain an understanding of your own relational patterns, as well as your strengths and weaknesses in relationships. By doing so, you’ll learn what relationships actually require, beyond the fairytale notions of romance. And by maintaining a steady but gentle focus on yourself, you’ll build the best possible foundation for making a loving connection. By understanding your past relationship experiences, cultivating a strong sense of self-awareness, and determining what it is you really want in a romantic partner—you’ll be ready to find the healthy, lasting love your heart desires.

Surrounded by possibility but unsure of your direction? You’re not alone. If you’re in your twenties, you’re likely feeling the combination of the excitement of this defining decade and the pressure to figure out your entire life. The thrill of newfound independence and opportunity can be quickly squelched by worry, disillusionment, or disappointment. Like thousands of other twenty somethings, you may have experienced what life coach and quarter-life expert Christine Hassler calls an “Expectation Hangover?.” This manifesto explores the all-important questions and life choices of these turbulent yet exciting years. Twenty somethings may commiserate about the challenges they face, but few resources offer practical lessons or suggestions. In these pages, quarter-life men and women tell their stories, sharing their successes and failures, along with their frustrations and realizations. The author’s insightful commentary and “take away” suggestions provide the tools and skills you need to create change and direction in your life. You’ll recognize and articulate your personal goals, paving the way to what you truly want.

His search for a sense of 'purpose' in life remains unfulfilled.

Our "thirty-is-the-new-twenty" culture tells us the twentysomething years don't matter. Some say they are a second adolescence. Others call them an emerging adulthood. Dr. Meg Jay, a clinical psychologist, argues that twentysomethings have been caught in a swirl of hype and misinformation, much of which has trivialized what is actually the most defining decade of adulthood. Drawing from a decade of work with hundreds of twentysomething clients and students, THE DEFINING DECADE weaves the latest science of the twentysomething years with behind-closed-doors stories from twentysomethings themselves. The result is a provocative read that provides the tools necessary to make the most of your twenties, and shows us how work, relationships, personality, social networks, identity, and even the brain can change more during this decade than at any other time in adulthood-if we use the time wisely. THE DEFINING DECADE is a smart, compassionate and constructive book about the years we cannot afford to miss.

In the poetic memoir That Which Awakens Me, Ananda Kiamsha Madelyn Leeke shares her journey of self-discovery from a law school graduate to a creative woman who learned to open the door to authentic living. When Leeke graduated from law school in 1989, she was a twenty-something with a life plan focused on becoming a successful attorney. Using her multiple bar exam failures and two bouts of unemployment as a catalyst for self-discovery and lifestyle reinvention, Leeke followed her own unique path during the past twenty years and made changes in the way she feels, thinks, lives, works, and manages her finances. Through poetic reflection and personal stories, she shares the lessons that taught her to trust her intuition, expand her spiritual practices, heal emotional wounds, tap into her creativity, discover her passions, open her eyes to hidden opportunities, volunteer and serve her local community, travel the world, and heed her calling as a writer, artist, creativity coach, yoga teacher, Reiki Master practitioner, radio host, blogger, social media strategist, and innerpreneur. That Which Awakens Me provides insight for anyone seeking guidance on how to both handle and benefit from the ups and downs of their own life journey.

Gail Sheehy’s classic bestseller, Passages: Predictable Crises of Adult Life, is available as an eBook for the first time, with a new introduction. For decades, Gail Sheehy’s landmark bestseller Passages has been inspiring readers to see the predictable crises of adult life as opportunities for growth. She charts the stages between 18 and 50 as unfolding in a pattern of adult development: once recognized, more easily managed. Passages is an insightful road map of adulthood that illustrates with vivid stories our continuing personality and sexual changes throughout the “Trying 20s,” “Catch 30s,” “Forlorn 40s,” and “Refreshed (or Resigned) 50s.” One comment is continuously repeated by men, women, singles, couples, and people who recover from a midlife crisis: “This book changed my life.”

Foster good habits. Press into pain. Never, ever get another perm. Despite what many think, our twenties aren’t that dead space between youth and real life. Done right, they can be among our most important years. In 20 Things We’d Tell Our 20-Something Selves, college professors Peter and Kelli Worrall look back on it all—the good, the bad, and the miserable—to give you the best of what they’ve learned. With humility, warmth, and brilliant storytelling, they invite you not only into their wisdom but into their lives, sharing about faith, marriage, drawn-out adoptions, dark nights of the soul, and the God who’s in it all. 20 Things is more than a list of advice; it’s a book that can change your life. Let the trend of your twenties be sowing wisdom, and who knows what the rest of life will bring? Includes action steps, discussion questions, and ideas for further reading at the end of each chapter.
