"Carve Your Own Road" by Jennifer Remling and Joe Remling is a motivational book to get you to reconnect to what you want to do with your life since you may have gotten off the path. If you picked up the book, then maybe you took the wrong path and need to get back on track. I was hoping to learn how to get myself back on track and motivate myself to see the possibilities that are out there. Instead, they talk about how they were able to secure a book deal and a free Airstream so that they can interview people that went out and changed their careers and lives. That was okay, but I was yearning for more.

Carve Your Own Road is about living your career dreams instead of getting stuck in the corporate rut and stifling your creativity. The authors traveled around America with an Airstream travel trailer, interviewing entrepreneurs and writing the book. They took risks in order to pursue their unique ideas and want to inspire others to try it also. The book has many stories of people who have broken away from corporate careers in order to start their own businesses. It also has some steps on how to go about the process of clarifying your goals and how to make changes in your work life. The author's have peppered the book with inspiring quotations that made me think about how I choose to live. Carve Your Own Road encourages people to explore who they are and where they want to go by inspiring them with examples of others. The advice is very practical and achievable. The ideas in this book were focused on career choices, but are easily transferable to other areas of life. On the down side, this book had a few glaring typos. It could have done with another proof-read.

Carve Your Own Road Jennifer and Joe Remling The Career Press, Inc., 3 Tice Rd. PO Box 687, Franklin Lakes, NJ 07417 ISBN: 978-1-60163-052-0 $14.99 Reviewed by: Emily Decobert Rating: four stars Everyone wants to leave the rat race and try their own dreams and Carve Your Own Road, was written to help us do just that. It is based on the theory, Mindset on Clarity, which states picturing yourself doing successful things build the same neural pathways as doing them. Jennifer and Joe Remling practice what they preach and the first part of the book is how they took the leap and realized their dreams using the Mindset of Clarity theory. A interesting and inspiring story, it sets the right tone to lead into the practical instructions of the theory. Mindset of Clarity is in itself simple and Jennifer and Joe do a great job breaking down each step so anyone can understand. The instructions are enriched by real life stories of people who accomplished their dreams, which are weaved seamlessly into the text. The only confusing part is the fact that some real life stories were stuck in-between the first part, which was Jennifer and Joe's story, and the instructions on the Mindset of Clarity. Since real life stories are so expertly meshed in the first and second part, the adding of a bulk of extra stories breaks up the otherwise great flow.
