"The essential guide for a career that will bring you not just a paycheck but true happiness." Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before
The New York Times bestselling author of The $100 Startup shows us how to enjoy greater career success and personal fulfilment by finding the work we were born to do, whether within a traditional company or business, or by striking out on our own.
In Born For This, Chris Guillebeau shows readers how to create their own self-styled career, offering a practical, step-by-step guide to finding work that feels so right it doesn't even seem like work. Whether this is by launching a side job that turns a passion into a profitable business, winning the career lottery by finding a dream position within a traditional organisation, becoming a DIY rock star by fashioning an entirely new profession around our varied interests, or hacking an existing humdrum job into work we will love, Guillebeau offers an actionable method and framework for turning our passions into paychecks.
