Is your business or your idea for a business based on your dream work? Is it the work you are meant to do? Our guest for today's show, Chris Guillebeau, has written a brilliant book called Born For This: Find The Work You Are Meant For.
Chris joined me on episode 167 to give serious value bombs, wisdom bombs and knowledge bombs! We talk about why he wrote this book after hearing from so many of his rabid fans that they had “won the careery lottery”. In particular we focus on two chapters: You Incorporated and DIY Rock Star. Chris shares the themes in each chapter and what they mean for you.
We also highlight several case studies from the book, including a successful tee shirt business and the Passion Planner. He explains why these people – and other successes – often find the trifecta of joy, money and flow at the heart of their businesses.
This is a terrific show so grab some coffee or tea, your notepad and get ready to dig in with us on episode 167 of Youpreneur FM.
