Happen to Your Career: An Unconventional Approach to Career Change and Meaningful Work (Paperback)
There's only one thing standing in the way of your ideal career: You.
This book is for you if you want to do meaningful work that pays well. If you want to make a big career change without going back to school or taking a step down. If you've often wondered if there could be more out there for you. Spoiler alert: there is
Career coach, podcast host, and CEO Scott Anthony Barlow shows you that it really is possible to find your way to a career that feeds you and fulfills you; one in which you get to use the talents, strengths and skills you already possess to get just as much back out of it as you put in.
Drawing from his years of studying Happy High Achievers-high performers who are fulfilled in their careers-Barlow delivers a series of real-life case studies and insights to help you join their ranks. You'll learn how a lawyer who'd spent a decade trying to remove himself from law successfully transitioned to content strategy. How an engineer made a career change upwards instead of laterally while moving cities, jobs and industries. And many more.
Along the way, you'll learn about the Four Major Milestones that all happy high achievers cross, and the Five Obstacles to Change that each needs to overcome. You'll see that it is possible to have a career you're enamored with-one that is good for you, your family, your bank account, and even your long-term health. And not only is this possible. It's critical. Because the world of work is undergoing a transformation. And it's led by people like you.
