This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


How do you actually find meaning in the workplace? How do you find work that makes your heart sing, creates impact, and pays your rent?
After realizing that his well-paying, prestigious job was actually making him miserable, Adam "Smiley" Poswolsky started asking these big questions. The Quarter-Life Breakthrough provides fresh, honest, counterintuitive, and inspiring career advice for anyone stuck in a quarter-life crisis (or third-life crisis), trying to figure out what to do with your life. Smiley shares the stories of many twenty- and thirty-somethings who are discovering how to work with purpose (and still pay the bills).

Brimming with practical exercises and advice, this book is essential reading for millennial career changers and anyone passionate about getting unstuck, pursuing work that matters, and changing the world.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 27, 2016 – Poswolsky, using his own personal crisis as an example, convincingly explains why so many Americans are dissatisfied with their careers and how they can solve this quandary. In this self-help memoir (originally self-published), Poswolsky recalls that after graduating from college and quickly landing a $70,000-per-year job, he nonetheless felt miserable. With wit and candor, Poswolsky shares funny and odd things about himself while at the same time encouraging people who are unsatisfied with their career path to seek out their passion and pursue meaningful work. One method he shares is answering a series of self-discovery questions, such as "When was the last time you were really happy?" and "What do you absolutely hate doing?" Though the book is targeted to 20- and 30-somethings, his lessons will speak to anyone going through a career crisis. Numerous personal testimonies from millennials who found their callings and were still able to pay their bills lend credence to Poswolsky's prescriptions.
