Thirty Something and ReTired

Kurly’s book turns quarter life crisis into an advantage. 

Learn from her how to experience fullness of living.

Francis Kong, Entrepreneur & Columnist, Philippine Star

Can I share with you something?

That was me before. Yes, I was thirty-something and tired. 

I graduated with a degree in IT because back then I was told that this was “in demand” in the market. Thankfully, it was my choice and I didn’t have to be forced into it. I had a great career where I was paid well and was given opportunities to learn and grow. 

Like many, I had dreams. Dreams I buried deep inside my heart because they were crazy and far-fetched. Dreams such as writing a book. 

Many years ago, I was privileged to attend one of Mr. Francis Kong’s leadership workshops in our company. Witnessing him speak and reading his books,  I told myself, “This is what I want to do.”


Again, I buried it deep in my heart because I thought it was crazy and far-fetched. 


I went on… and on… and on…. until I found myself tired. 


But life has its way of pushing you and getting you to move, and God has His ways of reminding you of the dreams He placed in your heart. And so I took that so-called leap of faith armed with a solid plan of action… or so I thought.


This book is not just about my story. This book is about the many stories of twenty and thirty-somethings who are tired in different ways. Perhaps this is your story too. 


The good news is that you don’t need to be stuck there. The good news is that you have what it takes to get out of that life and live more meaningfully and purposefully.


Make your way out of it now.

  • How to deal with your doubts, fears and uncertainties;
  • How to make the waiting gamemore productive and exciting;
  • How to create a clear and actionable plans for your goals; and
