In this funny and inspiring memoir of change and growth, publicist Mindie Barnett shares the secrets to keeping the faith and managing to thrive while starting your own second act.
After finding the courage to leave her perfect-on-paper marriage, Mindie Barnett shifted the spotlight to herself. An expert at helping her clients pivot and put their best foot forward, it was now time to focus on her own second act. She committed herself to opening her heart and mind and bringing uplifting experiences into her life—even as it turned upside down. From tap lessons at her daughter’s dance school to a mid-life Bat Mitzvah ceremony, from running a half-marathon to seeking help from beyond the grave, from traditional talk therapy to consulting the angels, her journey covered all the bases as she juggled owning a business, the kids’ new schedules, and dating all over again in the age of texts and Tinder.
Sometimes, the show must stop before it can go on. In Intermission, Mindie provides an inspirational guide to kick-starting your life that will resonate with women everywhere facing big life changes.
