Praise for Portfolio Life "Dave Corbett's book turns two simple ideas into a program for life-enrichment, that you can create a life expressly for yourself and that the so-called retirement years are the best time to do it. Drawing on a lifetime of work with people who were rethinking what they wanted and their direction, he shows how to do both those things. Be warned: If you read the book, you're going to be changed. But I think you'll like how you turn out." --Bill Bridges, author, Transitions and Job Shift "Dave's book reveals a powerful and profound formula for crafting a genuinely rich life. If you agree that retirement is passé, and you are a lifelong learner and have a desire to make your life count in a deeply fulfilling way, you will love this book." --Fred Harburg, former chief learning officer and president, Motorola University "Healthy, fit, financially secure, and happy for another 40 years? Is there really that kind of gold over 'them thar' hills? Yes, and Portfolio Life is the guide, leading boomers to a life path never before traveled by so many. Don't pass 50 without it." --Natalie Jacobson, news anchor, WCVB-TV Boston "This is the work of a wise, thoughtful author with decades of experience helping people be more successful in the next chapter of their lives. It will help you embrace change and explore the possibilities that come with an additional 20 to 30 productive years to be designed and lived on your own terms." --Anne Szostak, chairman, The Boys & Girls Clubs of America "This timely book should be read by anyone of any age who wants his or her life to have meaning and purpose beyond the accumulation of money and things." --Millard Fuller, founder, Habitat for Humanity and the Fuller Center for Housing

This collection of thoughts and ideas came from an outcry of pain and suffering. Many people are in need to be listened to and call for action. I just wanted to freestyle with writing and help those believe in themselves. The more I wrote, the larger the readership grew. I received correspondence from all over on how a certain story helped them in some way. Sometimes I was asked to write something to inspire an event that was coming up and it ended up inspiring the masses. My intention was simple just to write what I felt on certain things and remind people how important and special they are. There are many people that feel lost and need guidance and I assumed a role to simply guide those lost souls. Most people I have encountered never were lost. They were just sidetracked off their path or journey. The snowball effect happened as I wrote more and these are a collection of my most favorite stories. These aren’t mine; they belong to you, the reader. They have helped so many and I hope they help a new group of people by getting the word out. Bob Frost was created a while ago for my love of Robert Frost. I first heard “Nothing Gold Can Stay” from “The Outsiders” and fell in love with the poem. I’ve been studying his many quotes and poems, and made me look up to him as a writer, mentor and even friend. I took his name in celebration of his work and wishful thinking. I joined an anonymous website to express some personal issues in my life and quickly found others just like me. People had gotten to know me as “Bob” and I stuck with it. My real name, real life, make no difference and I preferred to remain an unknown person writing to many people about what they wanted to talk about. Some chose to write about happy things and some wanted to vent and get some answers. To me, it’s the never ending quest for wisdom and knowledge. I possess none or pretend that I do. These stories are just my opinions, not facts. I don’t have a degree in anything other than “life”. I’m a middle class male in America trying to find my own way in life, my path. I don’t boast a PhD in anything other than hard knocks. I love to write and I enjoy helping others effortlessly. If I don’t have an answer for you, I’ll find out one and help you any way I can. I’m here to live my life and walk my path. What I didn’t realize is that while I live my life I encounter others on my path. Some are looking for guidance; some are looking for a helping hand. Some people just ignore and keep on walking. I refuse to believe in that way of thinking. As much as I argue with others about what I do, I feel the personal need to listen to every voice that write or talks to me. It makes for a difficult life for me, but the rewards mean more to me than anything. You have to sacrifice so much to be happy. You have to sometimes put everything and everyone aside and believe me, I did at first. I lost a lot but later found out it was the others that lost me. It took a long, vigorous process for me to accept the fact that not everyone is going to accept me. I’ve tried my whole life to be accepted and I still feel as if I’m not totally a part of society. So I write on and hopefully help others feel comfortable and at ease. I have always been an empath and that alone is a pain that I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Believe me, it’s mostly my own fault for being so naïve, but like I stated before, the rewards are limitless. So many people have thanked me and told me stories of success. The last couple of years I’ve told that I should publish my writing and try to get this message out to as many people as I can. After much thought, I decided to go for it. This book represents who and what “Bob Frost” is. I hope I don’t come off as pompous, but I finally separated myself from my alter ego. I am an individual and that’s why I have come out and did this. I don’t use politics or religion in my writing. I feel the human soul is enough of a religious and political struggle within you. I don’t use it a
