A quick, inspiring, yet practical read, Don?t Settle demystifies what it takes to go after the job and the life you love. For the 20- and 30-somethings who find themselves dissatisfied at work, in jobs that are ?fine? or which simply ?pay the bills,? Author Molly King urges readers ?Don?t Settle? with a career whose only highlights are weekends and vacation time. Life is too short to trade hours for dollars with the hope that things might improve in the future. Written in an easily digestible Q&A format, Don?t Settle settles all the questions, doubts, and fears that arise when beginning or restarting a job search, and empowers readers to boldly take charge of their career path?s trajectory and redirect their momentum into an arena where they are truly passionate and driven intrinsically to make a significant contribution. Don?t Settle includes all of the following and more! ? Insider interviews with top industry game-changers who’ve made the leap into doing work they love and are crushing it, including lifestyle entrepreneur and creator of the highly-acclaimed podcast, School of Greatness, Lewis Howes and New York Times Bestselling author and modern-day explorer, Chris Guillebeau ? Quick Q&A sections to cover over 90 job search-related questions and concerns ? The step-by-step processes Molly King designed and implemented to take her from a very dark and hopeless state about her career trajectory, to a state where she’s now compelled into her life?s “work” ? Exercises for the reader to help identify where they currently are, what they ultimately want to do/create, and how to get there ? As well as several tools and resources to help support the reader on his or her own journey Like many of us, Molly had her own version of a job that looked good on paper with a ?comfortable? paycheck. But the position and her trajectory left her wanting more. She had glimpsed the possibility of having work that she was truly proud of and that she feel matters, getting to wake up feeling ?pulled? out of bed, rather than ?pushed? through the day. Wanting more out of her life and her career, Molly left her cookie cutter corporate world in search of something much more well suited to her unique take on this world, and boy did she find something incredible: herself. The hope is that Molly?s story and the tools she used to make that shift?from having a job with a good paycheck, and an OK life, to doing work that inspires?will encourage others to evaluate where they are, where they?d like to go, and to muster up the courage to move in that direction. Each of us is made for so much more than just going to work, paying bills, and living for the weekend or our next vacation. The perfect job or a life you love doesn?t just happen. It?s a choice and it takes courage and a lot of work. But from those who?ve undertaken the journey can tell you, from this side of the cubicle, it?s well worth the struggle.
