What Are You Waiting For? You Don’t Have 9 Lives! beautifully blends the familiarity of a childhood storybook with the challenges of young adulthood.

In each chapter, the smart and sometimes snarky little tuxedo cat named Coco, shares her life experiences and lessons learned in tandem with those of her human “Mama.”

Through Coco’s observations and advice, readers will:

– Be encouraged to stay true to, and develop their natural talents
– Learn how to recognize, reframe, and recover from life events
– Realize they have the power to shape their life story

There is no how-to manual or comprehensive college course to help young people navigate the transition from student to young adult.


What Are You Waiting For? You Don’t Have 9 Lives! will help the young adult in your family, your classroom, or your organization conquer self-limiting beliefs and move through life with an authentic sense of self worth.

A tear-jerking page-turner, this book is simply spectacular. Implementing the Law of Attraction and the “T” Chart, brilliant. I give Nancy West a 40/40 on equipping college graduates with a guideline for living a more authentic and fulfilling life. On the weapons range, that’s an expert marksman.
