I love getting my hands on new business books ... anything that will basically help light a fire under my bum. This book is definitely that kind of book! At the time I picked it up, I was on the verge of my own career transition and yet I hadn't completely committed to said transition. By the time I finished reading the author's personal story, I knew I needed a change in my life.
Not only did this book get me thinking about a more rewarding, fulfilling career, it also forced me to really look at myself and decide what path I was on -- to be a more empowered employee or to be a passionate entrepreneur.
The questions and exercises throughout had me digging deep to discover what I was really all about. As such, this week is my last week at a job I've held for the last 7.5 years and I'm striking out as an entrepreneur! This book helped me see the light!

As a serial career changer myself (from accountant/auditor to journalist/marketing copywriter/publicist to technology information services sales representative), I have found, and continue to find, the topic of career transition of particular interest.

Career transition is a journey, and not a final destination. Deborah Shane tells a compelling and inspiring personal story of her career evolution, and supplements this journey with case studies, lessons learned, and hands-on self-assessment tools to guide you on your roadmap to personal growth and career satisfaction.

Deborah helps you shine the light to discover and best use your God-given talents.

Even if you feel perfectly content in your current career, "Career Transition - Make the Shift: Your Five Steps to Successful Career Reinvention" will enlighten you by helping you produce a real-time status report on your overall career satisfaction levels.

I highly recommend "Career Transition - Make the Shift: Your Five Steps to Successful Career Reinvention" as a helpful resource that you'll want visit and revisit - especially in this era of high unemployment, economic uncertainty, and rapid technological change.

The one thing that I really love about authors, presenters, and teachers are when they speak from experience. Deborah does a wonderful job of relating her life journey into a path of success for those who are in, or near, a career transition.

I just finished this book, and not only does she have an excellent, emotional, engaging story telling ability - but the stories she relates to the reader are authentic, passionate, and extremely relevant to the work she has you do.

If you read the book, and do the work, you're definitely going to be on the path of success. I speak from experience as well, because like Deborah, I did the scariest thing of my life in 1995, and stepped out completely on my own - starting my own business.

Deborah's journey very much paralleled my own life journey through those tough start-up times (being 'frozen with fear' but knowing I had to do something!)

Great work, Deborah!

This is much more than an excellent "how to" book on career transition. Follow Deborah Shane's process and you will discover the "internal job description" that has always been part of you. Find the career path that fully aligns with your innermost essence of who you are meant to be. Highly recommended for midlife career changers or anyone seeking to find work in their field of passion.

Deborah is right on money with her advice about career transition. She's "been there, done that" and shares exactly how you can do it too with her practical, no nonsense approach. I very much appreciate business how-to books that include specifics, and the specific checklists in Deborah's book will have you soul-searching and decision-making in no time. Well done!
