In case you are new around here at RTatW or just haven’t yet noticed, I am not a fan of the current “Quit your job and travel the World” trend! Instead I am all about the “Create the Life you truly want” trend! If the life you truly wants includes travel and location independence, than we were meant to meet, at least digitally 😉
Creating the Live you truly want, takes more than wishful thinking and there is someone, out there, who actually write sensible guides on how to do it. His name: Chris Guillebeau and his new book: Born for This!
Note: This post includes affiliated links so if you decide to purchase one or all of Chris’ books, I will get a small commission at no extra cost to you.
Who is Chris Guillebeau?
As you can read on his site, he is a guy who “travels and write books“… Well, that doesn’t truly covers it obviously!
Chris Guillebeau doesn’t just travel, he has visited every single countries in the World before his 35th Birthday and is still travelling something like 20 countries per year.
He isn’t just any writer, he is a New York Times bestselling author and his digital home, the Art of Non Conformity, is an extremely inspiring place.
Chris Guillebeau is also the host of the World Domination Summit, a yearly gathering in Portland, of thousands of “creative, remarkable people“.
Amongst other things…
OK, you’re going to think I have a crush on him 😉 Non, non, not the case!! I just feel very much in tune with his philosophy which he puts this way:
- You don’t have to live your life the way other people expect
- You can do good things for yourself and help other people at the same time
- If you don’t decide for yourself what you want to get out of life, someone else will end up deciding for you
- There is usually more than one way to accomplish something
Born for This – The official description?
To the outside observer, it seems like they’ve won the career lottery—that by some stroke of luck or circumstance, they’ve found the one thing they love so much that it doesn’t even feel like work, and they’re getting paid well to do it.
In reality, their good fortune has nothing to do with chance. There’s a method for finding your perfect job, and Chris Guillebeau, the bestselling author of The $100 Startup, has created a practical guide for how to do it—whether within a traditional company or business, or by striking out on your own.
This intersection of joy, money, and flow is what Guillebeau will help you find in this book. Through inspiring stories of those who have successfully landed their dream career, as well as actionable tools, exercises, and thought experiments, he’ll guide you through today’s vast menu of career options to discover the work perfectly suited to your unique interests, skills, and experiences.
Why I’m recommending you this book?
Because I have no doubt of its value! Chris Guillebeau’s previous books have been great & sooo inspiring and I’m 100% sure this one is too.
I know Born for This isn’t even out yet but that is precisely why I’m mentioning it to you now! If you pre order it, you get lots of freebies! You just need to go back on the Born for This page to claim them.
And I can say that the freebies Chris Guillebeau is usually offering are really good. I pre-ordered his previous book and was super happy with the incredible amount of additional infos I got. I am going to pre-order this one too, but I just can’t decide which package to choose from…
