    Taking Your Career to the Next Level

    This book is a great resource for individuals hoping to advance their career. It teaches you to own your career path and direction. The book not only offers advice on how to direct your career or change your direction, it also asks the reader to do simple exercises. These interactive activities will lead to a personalized plan of attack to change, start, or embrace your career path. I strongly recommend this book to anyone looking to make a change or take the first steps to launch a career. The author Lisa Quast does an excellent job engaging the reader in strategic drills and guidance which is translated into specific action for each reader, regardless as to where they are at with their career.

    I recommend this book whether you are starting your career or looking for a career boost or change.

    I recommend this book whether you are starting your career or looking for a career boost or change. I know that it has breathed new life into my approach to work and definitely to how I look toward my future. I used to dread getting up and making the trek into work every day now life is different. I¿ve met with my boss, changed to a new team, am in charge of interesting projects, and am excited when I travel to work each day. I¿m thankful for the new outlook (and the strategic plan I have in place) and I think this book is something I will refer to again and again throughout my career! You definitely need to buy this book for yourself¿and for anyone you know who could use some help creating a successful future for themselves.

    Great For Any Age

    I originally picked this book up as a graduation gift for my niece, thinking it would be a good formula for kicking off her career. But as I looked through it, I realized it¿s a great approach for creating a strategy for continual career advancement. This approach works at any point in a person¿s career 'even for me who¿s been working for 23 years'. I know it¿s helping me advance at my current company and it helped my wife decide to try a new career path¿one that I think suits her so much better than what she was doing before. If you¿re not finding fulfillment where you are now, take a look at this book. It will help you come up with a plan to create positive change in your life.

    Read this book!

    Your Career, Your Way is quick to read, easy to follow, and is packed with worksheets that help you personalize the process to make it work for YOU. That¿s the difference between this book and all the other career books out there it¿s highly individualized because of the interactive worksheets included in every chapter. I also liked the fact that it¿s not just a book that lists career advice ¿ it helped me create a plan of action I was able to implement right after I completed the exercises. Lisa teaches a very strategic and simple-to-follow approach to identifying and planning where to go next in your job or career. The key is that it¿s a formula designed to work for every individual.

    Career planning made simple!

    The exercises in this book are straightforward, yet thought provoking. The author pushes the reader to look inside themselves and to honestly consider what they need to do in order to achieve their life/career goals. Using a standard strategic planning approach used in business the reader is moved from having no idea what they need to do in order to advance their career to having a detailed plan and step by step approach. Applicable to both women and men by the way!

    A reviewer

    I highly recommend this book for women (or men) who want more out of their career. I've been in my current position for six years and have been trying without success to move 'up' or 'out'. Lisa's book gave me a way to think through and solidify my goals, plus a useful roadmap to reach them. With specific milestones in place to work toward, I feel more motivated than ever. Thanks Lisa Quast!

    A great professional tool

    Your Career, Your Way has served me well! As someone who has only been out of college for a few years this book has been a great resource for learning about myself and where I want to take my budding career. Anyone could benefit from this book's ten exercises that guide you through creating your own personal strategic plan--a tool that all successful businesses use to gauge their strengths and vulnerabilities. Highly recommended, especially for recent college grads!

    A Motivational Book for Everyone

    This book will become an asset to everyone who wishes to understand and better leverage their self-worth. Quast's thoughtful writing style (short, yet indepth) really packs a punch in terms of giving you a solid foundation in literally 3 hours for creating your own professional plan - or personal plan if you wish. From time to time, we all need to check in and consider our strenths and weaknesses, and this book provides the framework for doing just that. It's concept of viewing yourself as a product turns out to be quite motivational and in the end fills you with the energy and gumption needed to quit procrastinating, and figure out how you can adeptly shape your future.
