READERS SAY:

GREAT read. I enjoyed the energetic, uplifting tone.

I turn to the book before facing a career challenge for just the dose of inspiration I need.

I wish I had read this book a couple of jobs ago.

A lot of your advice when it came to starting your own business helped me think about what I've been doing wrong since starting freelancing.

Your story about getting a job you loved, then getting squeezed out, and dealing with the stress of starting a new business helped me put some of my recent career snafus in perspective.
