The New York Times bestselling author of The $100 Startup shows us how to enjoy greater career success and personal fulfilment by finding the work we were born to do, whether within a traditional company or business, or by striking out on our own. In Born For This, Chris Guillebeau shows readers how to create their own self-styled career, offering a practical, step-by-step guide to finding work that feels so right it doesn't even seem like work. Whether this is by launching a side job that turns a passion into a profitable business, winning the career lottery by finding a dream position within a traditional organisation, becoming a DIY rock star by fashioning an entirely new profession around our varied interests, or hacking an existing humdrum job into work we will love, Guillebeau offers an actionable method and framework for turning our passions into paychecks.

Like other reviews, I agree it was an easy read book. I was however disappointed in that it was yet another "self help" book with an enticing title that doesn't actually "do" what the title says. Like many other books with "how to" in the title, it doesn't tell you "how to" anything. Some interesting stories of what others have experienced but I found it frustratingly unhelpful.

This book started out slowly and I wasn't sure why it had gotten great reviews on a podcast that I listened to (and trust).
But, once the author got to the 100-person project, I started to really enjoy this. After that, there were several messages and ideas I found particularly useful and relevant to my life.

This was an easy read and I think it was worth it.
