Dorsey's follow-up to Graduate to Your Perfect Job is a how-to guide for struggling young adults seeking to kick off a career or achieve a long-term goal. Through real-world examples and prescient lessons-including instruction in making human connections and facing fears of failure-Dorsey underscores the importance taking responsibility for one's own success, pursuing dreams without hesitation and turning obstacles into advantages. Drawing on his own experience as an 18-year-old who left college to self-publish a book, racking up substantial debt before making a name for himself as a motivational speaker, Dorsey's lived-in examples demonstrate the importance of everything from finding a mentor to experiencing failure. Speaking mainly to the collegiate and post-collegiate crowd, Dorsey cites examples that are both profession-specific and widely applicable. With short, easy-to-follow anecdotes and analyses, plus numerous guided exercises, this is a useful, practical guide for anyone sick of their own excuses.
