"On with the Butter is a delight to read. There are so many good suggestions for anyone considering retirement or already retired.. This is not a book like so very many that only consider money and financial matters. Just the opposite. A good retirement is about so much more and this book addresses that.” – Del Lowery, RetirementTalk.org

Through Heidi's Herman's vibrant and engaging, and often humorous stories, intertwined with unique ideas and helpful information, she encourages curiosity, connection, and a call to action.

On With the Butter! was inspired in part by a book I worked on with my mom called “Never Too Late,” which chronicled her year of 93 new experiences.
