Overview

Living Life For Yourself, Not Your Job by Vitra Singh

Do you look forward to going to work every day? Or does your job consume your life, suck away your energy and leave you feeling unenthusiastic, unfulfilled, and unsatisfied at the end of the day?

In Living Life for Yourself, Not Your Job, Vitra Singh shares the stories of 24 people who courageously reinvented their careers in a way that worked for them. Whether they turned a hobby into a full-time job, tried various avenues until they found a passion, or were forced to figure it out when life got in the way. Their journeys prove ordinary people like you and me can change the course of our careers if we want it badly enough. While it may be easy to stay in your current job, this book inspires you to start exploring a profession that will give you a sense of purpose and joy.

You will meet people such as Alan, who left a job in finance to pursue his love of science and intends to use it to be a doctor; Barbara, who successfully climbed the ladder in various jobs for more than 30 years before getting so sick she promised herself if she was able to recover, she would pursue her dream job; and Jeffrey, who left a career in international development to follow his heart and attend culinary school.

In Living Life for Yourself, Not Your Job, you will live through the experiences of each of these individuals-their frustrations, fears, doubts, and strength as they boldly transformed the quality of their lives by refusing to settle for their 9 to 5 job.
