Welcome. I created this page to share my books, workshops, tips and tools with you. I’ll be adding more information as I go, including events and workshops that may be of interest to you. In future posts I’ll reference this page quite often, so I recommend bookmarking it for your own personal reference.
When I started my writing journey, I had no idea where it would take me. I learned to trust in the process and now I offer one-on-one support and community workshops to encourage others to capture their own stories for their families and friends.
The inspiration for the ‘Older and Bolder’ series of books came from chatting with hundreds of men and women, who have reached mid-life and beyond and are flourishing in later life. As life is a continuous adventure, chronological age becomes less and less relevant. Later life offers so many possibilities for personal growth and the opportunity to channel our time and energy into the activities we enjoy and the relationships that really matter. I’m thrilled to announce that my latest book ‘Changing Gears: Entrepreneurs @ 50+‘, was released on New Year’s Day. Click here to purchase your copy today Amazon.com: Changing Gears: Entrepreneurs@50+: You can generate an income while crafting a life of independence and purpose (Older and Bolder Book 5) eBook : Robertson, Angela: Kindle Store This book is also available from other online bookstores (e.g., Fishpond NZ, and Barnes and Noble) and from local bookstore Books&Co in Otaki.

A huge debt of gratitude is due to the awesome individuals, from diverse backgrounds and all walks of life, who generously shared their stories with me. It’s with their permission that a lifetime of wildly different experiences has been condensed into 4 collections of short cameo stories for you to enjoy! These individuals are living fulfilling lives on their own terms, and inspired by their example, so can we. After all, life is a gift and it’s up to each of us to make the most of it.
