 Thinking about being somewhere else...something else?  More and more people are. But for most, that dramatic career change remains just a wishful idea. This is the book that looks at where you are in your career state, and what it takes to make the leap to something completely different. Dramatic career change has never been more exciting - or more possible. Increasingly people are looking for purpose in their lives, to find a way of earning money while doing what they feel they should be doing. It¿s about finding a line of work that uses your talent, makes you feel fulfilled and feel you are doing the right thing.  Yet for many people it¿s still a terrifying prospect. Especially if the ¿right thing¿ turns out to be a completely different direction from your current job. Whether you¿ve snapped or whether you are crackling with discontent, this book helps you evaluate your current career state and find the path to becoming the master of your own destiny. It uses the experience of people from all walks of life who have made a dramatic change: from the preacher who left the cloth to become an advertising sales executive earning a six-figure salary, to the baker who after 28 years found his place as a sculptor.  Snap, Crackle or Stop isn¿t necessarily about becoming rich, but about being exhilarated about what you do. It¿s about success and how people made it happen. This book will inspire and stimulate anybody considering a career change - to help you find where you¿re meant to be, and get there. This book will:

  • Get you thinking and believing that you can find work that is both financially rewarding and true to your values and your needs.
  • Show you real life stories where people have made the change, and tell you about the costs and benefits, highs and lows.
  • Include specially devised techniques to work out where you are in your career state and how to move on.
