How to Find the
Work You Love

Boldt’s timely book,
How to Find the Work You Love, teaches you how to proactively take control of your career by setting your feet in the direction you’ve always wanted to go. Life then becomes a mission, not a burden; a contribution, not a cage of unmet dreams.

—Stephen Covey, author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

This thin self-help manual provides an elegantly simple approach to defining what you want from life and work. Clear your mind to consider the author's provocative, introspective questions, and you will likely walk away with new insights and ideas to rebuild your career.

—Richard Leider, author of
The Power of Purpose
