You’ll learn how to allocate more time to roles you enjoy, and shed roles you can’t stand… identify career choices you’ll be passionate about, and build your skills and abilities to match them… improve your career without leaving your employer, and make your position more resistant to downsizing… define a mix of several stimulating and liberating wealth-building activities that keep your life engaged and balanced… keep personal relationships healthy while you pursue work you’ll love. This book doesn’t just teach you powerful career techniques: it profiles people in all walks of life who’ve used these them to build truly inspiring careers.
