My book, Never Too Late to Bloom: Becoming the Woman You were Meant to Be is available here.



Written for women in the latter half of life, Never Too Late to Bloom: Becoming the Woman You Were Meant to Be is the fascinating story of how Pat Balvanz “bloomed” at an advanced age (she’s not telling her exact age, but you can figure it out). In an extremely transparent way, Balvanz invites the reader into her life to see her journey through uncharted waters to arrive at the blossom stage.

Balvanz notes the 30 year life bonus we have been given, largely as a result of medical advancements, proper nutrition and positive attitudes. This bonus is one that former generations did not have. Her mother's life expectancy at birth, she points out, was 52, whereas a female born today will have an average life span of 80 years. She challenges her readers to prepare for longer life by going within to discover the keys to renewing and rebooting their lives. Taking an insightful look at the “droughts and floods” which impede growth, she delivers unflinching advice on how to conquer these hindrances. 
You were put here for a purpose, she says, and when you find that purpose, you will be unstoppable. She poses three questions:

1.What do you want to do with the rest of your life?
2. What’s stopping you?
3. What would you do if you knew you could not fail? 

Throughout the book, Pat has quoted from many sources, from Erma Bombeck to the Bible. The book is at once serious and light hearted, pointed and laid back. You may recognize yourself in its pages, but never fear, Balvanz will show you how you can overcome any perceived obstacle to achieve your desires.
