Are you working at your job and wondering why you aren’t doing what you love? Maybe your passion is surfing, finance, or knitting. Regardless of what your passion is there is always a way to make money off what you enjoy doing. That is if you can find the right angle. You just need to find a way to deliver value to people so they will pay you for your skill.
The “doing what you love” method of making money is a popular topic lately. Many people are flooding into this market. The problem is that they don’t have enough true wins or losses in their past to be considered an expert. They just talk a good game.
We must separate the fakers from the real deals. After meeting Jonathan Fields at South by South West I’m confident that he is the real deal. His book, Career Renegade, takes the reader through the steps necessary to take his/her career to the next level.
Stressed Out Lawyer
Jonathan was a stressed out lawyer who discovered that he had to make a life adjustment unless he wanted to die a young man. When a person’s health forces him to make a change, the creativity often surges out of him.
Jonathan realized that he could make money pursuing his passion of health and fitness without creating some new style of workout. He leveraged the existing market and found a way to deliver more value than his competition. He created health and fitness companies that changed tens of thousands of people lives. He used this success to become a writer, speaker and consultant. Quite an amazing career. I know he poised to implement even bigger and better ideas.
“The task, big or small, must be clearly defined and the steps needed to get there must be laid out in detail or at least be highly delineated along the way. Getting there does not have to be easy, but you need to be able to see, even from a distance, where you are going.”
- Jonathan Fields Career Renegade
You can create the career that will make you feel like you are the luckiest person on earth. You just have to discover what strengths you can use to make it a reality.
Fear has probably dictated many of your choices up to this point. It’s natural. It’s important to be able to relax with your fears and not allow them to prevent you from creating a career that makes you happy.
“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.”
- Henry David Thoreau
You don’t need to live a life that isn’t fulfilling. You can create the life that will fill your bank account and fill your soul.
This book will give you tips on how to build a business through the internet, networking and sheer creativity. If you already have a dream career in mind, then buy this book. You’ll find helpful stories and unique ideas that will help you build a career you are passionate about.
Career Renegade was written for a person like me who is trying to build his online presence. My favorite chapter was chapter 11 “Is the world ready for you?” In this chapter, Jonathan writes about separating from the pack and finding a niche in order to position yourself as an expert in your desired field of work.
The ideas in this book have helped me to assess my own choices and figure out better ways to deliver value to you.
Like any good non-fiction book, Career Renegade gives the reader a few good ideas to help take life to the next level.
