LAUNCH: A Guide to Adulting


Are you ready to launch into the adult world? Have you been told, “It’s time”?

Drs Rhea Merck and Amy Montanez (authors of Messy Marvelous) have written a book to help you do just that.

  • How comfortable are you asking for help?
  • Do you have the necessary grit to hang in there when adult life doesn’t go exactly as planned?
  • How well do you meet people and participate in community?

These are just three of the eleven skills covered in this book. Carefully designed so that any reader can use it alone as a resource for self-improvement, or in a group to foster discussion, you will come away inspired to do a better job adulting!

Failure to launch is a real thing. This book will help you hone the skills you need to thrive, and to feel competent in the adult world.

A note from Amy & Rhea: We so appreciate your support, and want to let you know that unless you’d like the book personally inscribed, or you plan on picking it up from our office (or you’re just trying to order less from Amazon!) it’s actually easier for us if you order it directly from Amazon.

Otherwise, any book purchased through can include a personalized inscription on the inside! If you’d like to take advantage of this, please write the full name of the recipient in the order notes field at checkout so we know to whom to make it out.

If you’re in the Columbia area, this product is available for free local pick up! If you choose this method, your items can be picked up at 1703 Richland St, Columbia, SC 29201. Please call 803-254-5650 x201 to schedule your pick-up time, as we’re not always around due to Covid19.
