Introducing “Building A Dream: The Joyous, Twisty Journey to Breaking Ground on a Beach House”

CARLISLE, PA, July 01, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Author Anita Wasko takes readers on an inspiring journey in her self-help memoir: Building a Dream: The Joyous, Twisty Journey to Breaking Ground on a Beach House.

Follow Anita and her husband as they want to break ground for a house in a Florida beach town. With their children grown, their idyllic dream was to move from scenic Pennsylvania to sunny Florida. Fears and challenges, though, soon threatened their path.

Wasko captures the struggle soon-to-be retirees wrestle with, leaving a stable career and an established identity to pursue a new and unfamiliar path.

Building A Dream delves into the life of Anita, who, with her husband, dreams of breaking ground on a Mediterranean/Spanish-style courtyard house, the design influenced by all their visits to Mexico with Anita’s parents. Follow Anita and her husband from the first inklings of a house design through the building permit process, facing the fallout from the pandemic and rising construction costs.

While Anita’s journey is specific, she compels readers to face their own takeaway lessons to trust their intuition, follow their dreams, and act toward their desires. Wasko weaves a narrative that reveals the book’s underlying theme to let go of the familiar and allow the creation of something new.

This book is Wasko’s first on pursuing one’s dreams, earning early success with top 100 rankings in Amazon’s mid-life management. Wasko and her husband have two adult children. For more on Anita Wasko’s journey, visit
