The Time Between Dreams

“The Time Between Dreams” is a magnificent book and tool for those of us – which is truly all of us – who have in the past or are currently experiencing a transition in our lives. Most often, we just forge ahead, yet don’t stop to understand the challenges that we’ve gone through and the opportunities that lie before us.

Carol has seen the tremendous impact upon the 20,000+ people in her more than two decades of non-profit work and she knew this was a message to be spread to a much, much wider audience. “The Time Between Dreams” contains many personal accounts from Carol’s own experiences with change, as well as the profound stories of Centerpoint Alumni. This book is not only helpful personally, but is a wonderfully thoughtful gift for those in our lives who feel stuck or are in any type of transition phase.

Praise for “The Time Between Dreams: How to Navigate Uncertainty in Your Life and Work”

Carol Vecchio has created the kind of book I’ll turn to time and again, whenever life or work signals that something is about to shift. If change is the one constant, this book should be your constant companion.” ~ Marci Alboher, VP of Marci Alboher

Vice President,

To fellow learners… truly recommend Vecchio’s book. It has application for career learning but also for both our own lives, especially tending to graduate school, family and work, and to our future clients. An “easy” book to read but filled with so much information. Having walked 237 seasons and so many crossroads …and a devout nature walker.. the cycles made so much sense. For those, smile, not with so many seasons behind them, it would also help explain the transitions that we often either blame ourselves for or external factors…and many are simply natural transitions. Graduate Counseling Student

Carol’s warmth, excitement and insights experienced within her trainings fill each chapter to help us reimagine our choices while designing a life. The Time Between Dreams accelerates movement, honors our differences, and provides essential insights to help us live with passion, purpose and kindness. A must read for those seeking and promoting how to embrace our life’s seasons, and our career cycles while fitting our jobs into days which support our lives!

I showed a friend the book and suggested she might like to read it. Today she thanked me for making the suggestion. She bought a copy and after reading it said, ‘it has given me permission to have been depressed or “in Winter” for several years… I am now coming out of it and into a new season…’   In order to navigate uncertainty in life, we must stop, slow down, and listen to ourselves for we are the only one’s who can uncover the answers that we seek. This book can be effectively used by career development practitioners or anyone seeking to create a more meaningful and satisfying life. Lourdes Rivera
