Have you ever felt caught between the tension of a day job and a dream job? That gap between what you have to do and what you’d love to do?
At first I thought I was the only one who felt that way, but then I started to talk to people and realized we’re becoming the “I’m, but” generation. When we talk about what we do for a living we inevitably say, “I’m a teacher, but I want to be an artist.” “I’m a CPA, but I’d love to start my own business.”
“I’m a _____, but I want to be a ______.”
All too often, we hear that dreaming big means you quit your day job, sell everything you own, and move to Guam. But what if there were a different way?
What if you could blow up your dream without blowing up your life?
What if you could go for broke without going broke?
What if you could start today?
What if you already had everything you needed to begin?
From figuring out what your dream is to quitting in a way that exponentially increases your chance of success, Quitter is full of inspiring stories and actionable advice. This book is based on 12 years of cubicle living and my true story of cultivating a dream job that changed my life and the world in the process.
It’s time to close the gap between your day job and your dream job.
It’s time to be a Quitter.
I never knew there was a biography written about me! I laughed, cried, and most of all...began to dream again. A must read for those who have tossed a dream aside and accepted a day job that has nothing to do with it. Thanks Jon.
This was a very good book. It was easy to follow and made me laugh along the way. I have found it very inspirational and can't wait to get started on my dream!! Thanks Jon
Worth Every Star!
What kind of a book encourages you to stay at your day job instead of rushing off to pursue your dream job? This book does, and if at first you're reading it and scratching your head, by the end of the book, you'll be nodding along with Acuff's sage and timely advice about the best time to become a "quitter".
In a world where the norm is to change jobs or careers about as often as we change clothes, this book brings a decidedly different point of view to the the table. While in pursuit of your dream work, whatever that may be, Acuff encourages you to "fall in like with your day job" because it is your biggest asset for someday working your dream job full-time.
The chapters were highly informative and I enjoyed Acuff's witty prose throughout. I'm fairly sure I highlighted the majority of the book. This is a great read!
