Review

Born for This is chock-full of inspiring yet practical advice to develop new streams of business, build your fan base, and invent the job of your dreams. If you’re looking for someone to help you find your footing on the new frontier of work, Chris Guillebeau is your man.”
—Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive
 
“Chris Guillebeau makes getting your dream job seem less of a dream and more of a reality. Through actionable tools and inspiring advice, Born for This is a must-read for those yearning to find that perfect career path.
Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet
 
“Intensely practical and packed with real-life examples, Born for This is the essential guide for a career that will bring you not just a paycheck but true happiness.”  
—Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before
 
“Seven years ago, I sat in awe reading a blog from some guy named Chris Guillebeau. I couldn’t believe the hope and hustle he was writing about while I sat there stuck in a cubicle. Seven years later, he’s still a sage guide to me and millions of others who love the books he writes. If you’ve ever wondered, ‘What should I do next?’ read this book!”
Jon Acuff, New York Times bestselling author of Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work, and Never Get Stuck
 
“Figuring out our highest point of contribution at work is not ‘one more thing to do’—it is the very work of our professional life. Wherever you are on that journey, Born for This will give you a mind-set and skill-set for accelerating the whole adventure.”
—Greg McKeown, author of the New York Times bestseller Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
 
“It takes real courage to overcome the inertia of your current life to create something better. But it’s much easier to take that step toward positive change when you have a plan. Chris Guillebeau not only provides hope that passion for your work is possible, he lays out a practical path to pursuing a better career/life fit.”
—Shawn Achor, New York Times bestselling author of Before Happiness

“Someone’s going to say this, so let me be the first: Chris Guillebeau was born to write this book. He’s delivered an inspirational and absurdly useful step-by-step guide to finding—or creating—your dream job.”
A. J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically, My Life as an Experiment, and The Know-It-All
 
"You were born to read this book--and use the powerful insights it shares to do work that wows all witnesses. And lifts the world by its impact."
Robin Sharma, #1 bestselling author of The Leader Who Had No Title + founder of The Titan Academy
