This book is the book I wish I had when I was looking for guidance…. It would have saved a hell of a lot of confusion, tears and heart-ache!

I have 37 years of lessons inside my head. Lessons that I wish I knew 20 years ago because my life would have been significantly easier over the past 20 years!

If I die, these lessons will die with me. I wrote this book to transfer the lessons out of my head.

It started as a speech.

Beth Stansfield, a FIFO wife (wife to a fly in fly out worker) had found a way to stop merely surviving in her FIFO life and started thriving. On the back of overwhelming support for her message, Beth developed an online presence to reach the partners of other FIFO workers. The appeal of her distinct style has extended Beth’s influence far beyond the FIFO community.

Now - Beth Stansfield has a captive audience of army wives (navy, air force & other military wives too!) and the partners of long distance bus & truck drivers, sailors, travelling executives, critically & terminally ill patients … and others who are working away from family. All relationships share the same underlying situation – a life partner is there and yet – at the same time – not there.

Beth Stansfield draws upon her own experiences and those of the people she has met through speaking, writing and her online presence. Beth’s unique ability to convert her inspirational story into motivational videos and motivational speeches has catapulted her popularity within this niche.



In February 2009, the company Beth worked for issued forced redundancies to 1800 workers. Beth was one of them. This book flags the key moments in her search for "another way" to earn income - beyond the employee rat race.
