He is the host of two podcasts, The Talent Development Hot Seat and the Own Your Career Own Your Life Show and he is going to teach us how to stop waiting for something to happen and create a life that excites us!

In his eagerly-anticipated book Own Your Career Own Your Life, you’ll learn how to direct your own career, prepare for the future, and ultimately get back in the driving seat of your own life.
This book is intended to be a practical guide, so it is packed full of useful tips and easily actionable steps, as well as inspirational accounts of real-life events and helpful insights into the author’s own life – including the exact, real-life strategies he has used to design a career and life he loves.
What You’ll Learn
- Most people are waiting for things to happen to them—the new job, the promotion, the side business, but you have to take the initiative.
- It’s up to you to wake up and live life intentionally.
- We often go by default into the careers we are offered, or we pursue what our parents think we should do.
- Figuring out where you’ve gone wrong is not about guilt and regret. It’s about realizing you’re in the perfect spot to take action, change, and move forward.
- How to discover what path to choose:
- Self-awareness—Ask yourself about your strengths and weaknesses?
- What energizes you?
- What are your values?
- Have conversations with friends. What do they perceive your strengths are?
- Weight the priorities and trade-offs.
- The smallest thing you can do to get started is to shift your mindset from being a trapped victim to one of ownership. You get to choose.
- Ask yourself, why do I go to this job I don’t like? Is there a better option?
- What are you really unhappy about? Can you tweak your existing work to make it better?
- Find people who are doing what you’d like to do and follow them.
- How to praise effort in your own life instead of results.
- Failing doesn’t make you a failure. Are you really afraid of failure, or just what others will think?
- Most men say, I don’t have time to try something new. Is that really true? Where are you really spending your time?
- How to integrate home and work life in a healthy way
- Use your values to set your schedule and boundaries.
