If you hate your job, but you don’t know what to do with your life, you’re not alone!
I know exactly how you feel, because I’ve been there too. Over and over again.
But life’s too short to continue feeling this way. It’s time to change your life.
I spent 13 years as an IT business consultant and tried many other things along the way. In the depths of misery, I wrote the first incarnation of this book in 2008. I was desperate to understand what was wrong. I wanted to love my work or find something more fulfilling, but I didn’t know how to start.
Four years later, I am now a full-time author-entrepreneur. I write fiction, speak professionally and sell multimedia courses teaching authors about online business. I love what I do every day!
So I wanted to rewrite and re-release this book with updated material in order to share some of what I have learned along the way.
This book is written honestly, from my heart.
I was desperately unhappy in my job and I know many of you are too. I share a lot of my personal story with you in this book, so I hope it helps.
There’s also a free workbook downloadable below so you can print and write your answers to the questions posed in the book.
Available in ebook and print and coming soon in audiobook
