On today’s show I review the New York Times Best Seller book Quitter by Jon Acuff. Quitter is about working your day job while developing your passion and finding your dream job. What does this have to do with personal finance you might ask? In my experience working a job or creating a business that you have a genuine passion for will create more income over the long run then working at J-O-B that you absolutely despise.
Working with clients I have run into many cases where people are working jobs they hate just so they can pay their monthly bills. Essentially they are slaves to money. But once we get their finances straightened out they are free to pursue work that they love and are excited for. It is our human nature to say "I will do work that I love when . . ." but the problem is we never actually do it later! What Quitter does a great job of doing is sharing how you can pursue your dream job while continuing to work your day job and make the transition over time.
Also, if you are in the Central Ohio area, please remember to plan on attending the Cash, Credit, College, and Career course part of the Great Recovery on I-70 series starting on September 13th. I am looking forward to meeting everyone there.
