Lost and Found in Macedonia
A Journey to Unexpected Places
by Marilyn Wheeler
It would have been easy to give up—to pronounce her decision a monumental mistake—and grab the first plane home. No one would have judged her had she raced back to the land of comfort, English-speaking friends, and a family that loved her. But Marilyn was determined. At the age of sixty, Marilyn Wheeler left behind family, friends, and the outward signs of the good life—to embark on the adventure she had long imagined: being a Peace Corps Volunteer.
“This experience was not for sissies, and what a surprise to discover I was one!”
With humor, warmth, and raw honesty, Marilyn takes you along on life changing experiences—from language and culture, to working with the Gypsies—all culminating at a totally unexpected place….
For more than 15 years, Marilyn was president and owner of “Direct Effect Programs,” a seminar and coaching company headquartered in Southern California. She guided people from around the world to reach their personal and professional potential, and authored Problem People at Work, The Essential Survival Guide, published by St. Martin’s Press internationally and Random House in the U.S. She also co-hosted a national talk radio show, “Uncommon Sense.” Marilyn is currently the owner of The Healthy Way of Monterey, a weight and lifestyle management business, which has helped almost 10,000 people live happier, healthier lives (thehealthyway.us). She also presents seminars and workshops, “It’s Just Your Life,” how to find your passion and live it!
