Cory A. Lavelle ★★★★★

What I love about this book is that it has its own way of putting you into the situation and you feel motivated afterwards. Great job!


A 5 minute internet search or a visit to a reputable bookshop will provide an overwhelming number of self-development and career change books and resources. The great majority of them are excellent in themselves but there is now little that is new.

I decided to write this book when I realised that, when helping clients, they needed to go to a range of different sources to cover what I regard as the fundamental success factors in job search or change.

I have set out to bring together these fundamentals in a four step process that puts you rather than the process at the heart of the matter.

- What really matters to you.

- What you ideally want to do.

- What works best for you in finding that ideal.

- How to look after yourself during a challenging journey.

In difficult economic times we too often have to settle for job opportunities that are not ideal. I cannot promise to always avoid that but I passionately believe we should start the search with the aim to do much better than “be able to pay the mortgage“. Only by setting our sights higher can we hope to achieve success.

This book is written primarily to help those seeking employment job change although if you are contemplating setting up your own business and becoming self-employed the fundamentals are the same although some of the detail may need to be adapted.

By concentrating on what you need and providing a practical workbook approach I hope I have made a contribution to your success.

Best wishes,

Michaela Partridge
