CHICAGO — Offering a fresh strategy for reexamining life and work goals, “The Work/Life Balance Planner: Resetting Your Goals” addresses numerous practical concerns, such as housing, moving, education, career choices, family and emotional support. Written by Ann Kepler, this workbook and planner is adaptable to almost any lifestyle change and allows readers to work at their own pace, gather facts and define their goals. Personal setbacks can often trigger stress during times of change, and the tools in this book offer readers ways to cope with the present while planning for the future. Topics covered include exploring new career paths using self-evaluation, using electronic media resources, obtaining financial aid, relocating and the impacts that life changes have on family. The book is published by Huron Street Press, a trade publishing imprint of the American Library Association available through Independent Publishers Group as well as numerous traditional retail outlets in both print and e-book editions.

Kepler has authored or coauthored several books, including “50 Plus One Things to Do with Your Kids During the Summer” and “Are You Ready to Buy a House?” She also edited the eighth edition of “The ALA Book of Library Grant Money.”  She lives in Chicago.
