When I was trying to figure out what to do with my life, I got a lot of random pieces of generic “find-your-passion” advice.
You know what was 100x more helpful?
Meeting people just like me who were doing the things I wanted to do.
For example, when I was interviewing at Google, I met a guy who also had side interests (he had even written a book). I asked him if it was possible to work a demanding Google job, and also have side interests.
He laughed. “Yeah, it’s possible. You just won’t sleep a lot.”
So I decided take that same principle and share 8 stories of specific people and how they found their dream jobs. You can find these stories in a new ebook, free to download just for you.
What if you have no idea where to start? I included an IWT reader who tackled that problem.
What if you want to change industries? You’ll meet Elaine, who switched industries after 10 years — and got a raise while doing it.
And a few other things I share:
Interviewing: The common interview mistake that Ryan corrected to make $1,920 more in every single paycheck
How to use personal relationships: The exact email messages that Jesse used to turn his niche skills into a $150K job (his previous salary? $230/month)
How to navigate your workplace: The words Lucy said to sidestep not one, but two, company policies regarding transferring departments
I remember trying to discover what I wanted to do with my life. All the generic advice I was getting went in one ear and out the other…
…until I met people just like me who had found a way to live the life of their dreams. And since I have access to millions of readers and hundreds of thousands of people on this email list, it’s a no-brainer to bring you 8 of the most interesting stories. Because I know if you can find yourself in this ebook…you can change the way you think about finding a dream job.
And then the sky’s the limit.

You’ll notice I also included an opportunity to get a free copy of my Overnight Resume Makeover program on the page. Just a special thank-you for being an IWT reader.
