IT ALL STARTED HERE ON WORDPRESS WITH ONE LITTLE BLOG!

THANK YOU TO MY BLOG MASTER FOR PUTTING ME ON WORDPRESS.   I blogged a little blog.  A few people read it.  I blogged again – another little blog. People visited and viewed it.  I found I had an outlet to my voice.  I blogged again and again.  All little blogs. Now I have a book.  It is available for circulation in my local library.  One of my clients ordered a book and donated it to her local library.

“My father would be so proud,” my mother would tell me.   He revered books. My mother revered crafts.  As you can see, I had no shot at being a big business person from the very beginning!  But, I have already been on one podcast, one radio talk show, am scheduled to do a book talk, am scheduled to be on a local public access t v interview show, and will be on a podcast radio show -that operates out of Durham, NC.  And my book just debuted Oct. 6th!   “Not too shabby,” my friend would say.

If YOU WANT TO BUY A COPY FOR YOUR LIBRARY, THAT WOULD BE A FABULOUS CHANUKAH GIFT TO ME AND TO OTHERS WHO ARE AGING.  AND 18% of the proceeds goes to Memorial Sloan Kettering – if not for our sakes, then for the sake of our children.

p.s.  I AM FIVE FULL CHAPTERS INTO MY NEXT BOOK!

ANOTHER FABULOUS REVIEW!!!

on October 25, 2017
Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is nuch too short, which is the only thing I have againt it. Short, pithy chapters, full of wisdom and wit and always with a little twist that moves you deeply and makes you reflect back about your own experiene. Take for example the hilariously funny and so poignant chapter about Becker’s mother. At the age of 87, sufferring from Parkinson’s disease and living in an assisted-living facility, she meets a younger, 84-year-old wrack of a man and they happily get married. Ms Becker dubs him G.I. Joe, because he had served in the Korean War. He makes serious plans to take his bride out of the facility after the wedding and move in with his daughter-in-law. Sadly, that was not to be, becuase G.I. Joe died of a broken heart – “he wanted his manhood and independence back so badly” (p. 35). Or take the “Shoes Again” chapter, which develops from what seems to be a frivolous, girlish preoccupation with footwear into a major lesson in human relationship, in fact leading to the most significant relationship of Ms Becker’s life, with her future second husband. “I am a woman, and therefore, I am defined by my footwear. How do I know? Because once, when I started a new job, a whole year and three months passed before a colleague spoke to me, and the first words she ever said to me were, ‘Oh, what cute shoes!'” Everything they say about the book in rhe reviews is spot on. But it’s much more than enjoyable, it is also a hugely satisfying book. Read it with close attention and you will get a lot of good tips for your own life changes. We do hope to hear more o Jacqueline Becker in the future.

THE INTERNET IS AMAZING AND EVERYONE, IN MY OPINION, SHOULD OWN FACEBOOK STOCK! Get ready to join me for a book talk. Time and place TBA!

Here is how it works:  I posted here on wordpress and on Facebook and LinkedIn about my podcast.  (The rabbi who interviewed me, found me from my Facebook postings).    Another rabbi heard the podcast and found my email address from the organization’s flyer.  She emailed me and asked me to present some time in December. I will post details so that all my former colleagues can come since it will be near the district.  The internet is amazing.   I am really not tech savvy.   I am, however, an incredible networker and the network is called a network for a reason!!!!!

Another one! Thank you!

“Jackie hits “the nail on the head” with this very funny, true to this passage of life, collection of anecdotal short stories. It makes the perfect gift for all my peers! I’ve already shared it with dozens of very appreciative recipients worldwide! EVERYONE will LOVE this easy and amusing, uplifting ,cheerful
read!  A great view on aging that we can all relate to. Yeh!!!!!! Well done Jackie Becker!”

THANK YOU!!!!
