When to Jump
If the Job You Have Isn't the Life You Want
By Mike Lewis
A collection of real-life stories from those who have chosen to defy the status quo and take a leap of faith to pursue a passion - shared to inspire others who feel disillusioned with their lives and are ready for change. Includes a foreword by Sheryl Sandberg.
If you're at a crossroads, this is the book you need to read to begin chasing your dreams. Includes a foreword by Sheryl Sandberg.
Do you have a little voice in your head telling you to pursue the thing you love? Leaving a comfortable job to pursue a passion is a brave, bold move - but it's far from impossible. In this inspiring read When to Jump founder Mike Lewis has curated a community of people to share their stories about taking the leap into the unknown - people from all walks of life who left the safe inertia of their own circumstances to try and do what they really wanted to be doing. These are empowering, compelling tales about taking risks and embracing fear.
Forget what you should be doing, what do you want to be doing? What do you love doing? When to Jump will show you that starting something different is possible. Nothing will change unless you make the change - the journey starts here...
