Do you think there are a lot of people looking for a job these days?

There’s a better way to find one.

Do you want to have confidence in doing what you love?

There’s a way to make it happen.

My friend, Angela Lussier, did just that.  She decided to do something different, to break out on her own, to do what she was passionate about, and then write a book about it.

It’s called the Anti-Resume Revolution, and it’s an inspiring guide to getting and creating the rewarding career you want. 

This book is chock full of valuable information on a varietey of topics, from building a personal branding strategy to nailing the job interview, and from excelling during the first two weeks on the job to starting your own business.  But the real draw for me was Angela’s personal story and the stories of other everyday people who made things happen.  She weaved them masterfully throughout the book with a great sense of humor and in a way that kept me wanting more.   She was so authentic and open about how she felt during the the whole process that I felt as if I was experiencing this new adventure with her.

Angela definitely has talent and a drive to be unique and successful at whatever she does, but the down to earth way she shared her story made me feel like I could do something amazing like this too.  All it takes is a willingness to stand out, be a little different, and take some intiative to make your ideas happen.

She published the book herself using Lulu.com and even made an awesome video about how she did it.

What’s holding you back? 

Like the book’s mantra says: “Stop waiting.  Start creating.”

When you’re connected with well connected people, then you’re well, connected.

Another one of my friends who I’ve met through Seth Godin’s tribe is Johnathon Fields.  He was gracious enough to send me an advanced copy of his new book called Career Renegade

And let me tell you, it is fantastic. 

There are a lot of career books out there that say, “Just do what you love and the money will follow.” But most of the time that just ends up being an empty promise.  Jonathan’s book actually shows you the strategies and details on how you can find new marketing angles related to the topic of what you love to do that you might have not considered, and which can generate some serious money.  He talks about the latest online tools and markets that just didn’t exist a couple of years ago. 

He also teaches you how to do it without abandoning your current method of earning an income.  But it’s not one of those quick money making schemes, it is more principle based, along with “how to’s” that can be applied to any type of entreprenurial endeavor.

So check it out.  He’s another smart guy with something to say.

Man, there are so many of those out there.
