Get out of the rut—and into a new career.
What do you want to be when you grow up? That question nags at us long after childhood. Why is it so hard to figure out? Because finding your true calling takes courage. It means conquering fears, shedding misguided ideas, and mustering the strength to let go of a safe job and stage your next act.
Career Courage serves as a personal coach through the soul-searching and planning process ahead, whether you’re a college grad contemplating choices, a seasoned professional seeking new directions, or a stay-at-home mom preparing to reenter the workplace. Packed with exercises and stories of inspiring second acts, the book poses tough questions about motivation, confidence, character, risk tolerance, and more. The answers will power your journey forward as you learn to:
Clarify what really matters • Express your point of view • Build strong relationships and a robust network • Stay focused on finances • Think like an entrepreneur • Prioritize a truly fulfilling life • And more
A career that seemed promising can feel like a dead end today. Career Courage helps you break free and create your own brand of success.
