'This book is smart, friendly, and ready to help people make a jump of their own'
Do you have a little voice in your head telling you to pursue a goal or a passion? Do you want to make a jump to a new life or a new career? Not sure where to start?
In this inspirational, practical and thought-provoking book, Mike Lewis lays out the 'Jump Curve' - four steps to wholeheartedly pursuing the career of your dreams - through experiences from a variety of people who have jumped and never looked back.
When Mike was 24 and working in a prestigious corporate job, he eagerly wanted to leave to pursue his dream of becoming a professional squash player. But he had questions: when is the right time to move from work that is comfortable to a career you have only dared to dream of? How have other people made such a jump? What did they feel when making that jump - and afterwards?
So he sought guidance from others who had 'jumped', and the responses he got - from a banker who started a brewery, a publicist who became a bishop, a garbage collector who became a furniture designer, and on and on - were so clear-eyed and inspiring that Mike wanted to share what he had learned with others who might be helped by those stories. First, though, he started playing squash professionally...
The right book at the right time, When to Jump offers more than 40 heartening stories, inspiration to encourage, instruct and reassure, and the ingenious four-phase Jump Curve.
It's time to work towards your goals with focus.
It's time to rewrite the story.
It's time to jump.
