While reading Sean's excellent book, I kept thinking, "You should have written this three years ago." Had I known then what Sean presents now, I would have saved myself from hours of fruitless labor while turning my side business into my full-time job. Even today, after having read Sean's book (multiple times), there are still practices he espouses that I want to employ to continue expanding my business.
If you only see whom you want to become but have no idea how to get there, Overlap provides the clear, step-by-step path toward discovering that future you.
Since I'm a writer, I'd recommend Overlap to other writers who wonder how they could possibly earn a living while writing. The path doesn't begin with toiling away for years on a book that very likely won't be a bestseller. Rather, the path begins right now, even in the midst of your day job, and Sean provides practical, actionable advice to make daily steps toward your ultimate goal.
Here's a supportive, practical, step-by-step plan that explains how to keep your job and follow your dreams. Sean explains how to combine client work, products and teaching in a virtuous cycle of entrepreneurial success. Listen during your commute and you will whistle while you work, because this is a certain step-wise path. Responsible. Do-able. Enjoyable!
Sean McCabe is a well-known podcaster and comfortable in front of a microphone, I recommend the audiobook. I listened to the entire audiobook as part of a pre-launch promotion directly from the author, but I would definitely have paid for the book. I have gifted it to several friends.
If you could buy hope in a box, this is what would be inside.
I was able to immediately put to use Sean's guidance on how to find good clients and say no to bad ones. I'm also niching down my skills to focus on what I'm most passionate about which also allows me to become a master at my craft. My focus has narrowed and, in turn, a vast network of new opportunities has opened up for me. I couldn't be happier!
Stop wishing for the career you've dreamed of and put that plan into action! The guidance and practical knowledge you will receive from the Overlap book will be priceless and timeless. If you're serious about doing what you love and making a living doing it you need to get your hands on this book!
After working in digital marketing and content management for 5 years, and reading countless blogs and books on the topic, Overlap was the first the clearly explain the simple truths to establishing an online presence that resonates with a target market. Also, I've struggled for a couple years to build my own business, and Overlap revealed the root cause of that frustration, and how to overcome it.
Regardless of whether or not you love your day job, you might feel unfulfilled or incomplete. Like there is something "more" out there for you. Overlap will give you the tools and methods to figure out what that "more" is, and how to explore it.
Part 5 has been the most helpful to me because of where I'm at specifically. I've already re-read it several times. One very specific thing that has helped me is the 90% rule for us perfectionists. It really did help me launch some things I've spent weeks starring at because they weren't "perfect". I'd never really looked at it from that angle, but telling myself all I have to do is hit 90% perfect has really unclogged the pipelines of things I've wanted to finish, but felt like I couldn’t.
Some people seem to be born knowing what they want to be when they grow up. They're laser-focused and don't need much input from the outside world. But those people are few and far between, and even if you think you're one of those people, you could still benefit from the perspectives in this book. Who will it help the most? Anyone who struggles with finding meaning or purpose in their work and/or life… Anyone who feels like there has got to be more than "this" to life… Anyone who has a dream, but doesn't believe it's possible… Anyone who doesn't have a dream and wonders what's wrong with them for not having one… If you fall into any of those categories, seriously, read. this. book.
p.s. If you want to hear Sean answer some hard questions about this book and the processes it espouses, we hashed it out on my podcast, The Gently Mad. You can hear it at http://thegentlymad.com/sean.
