Publisher's Summary

Mira Tasich, a loyal, hardworking, and devoted employee of several large corporations, finds herself unemployed, a victim of the recession. As a young teenager, she moved to America, learned a new language, and gained prestige and career success only to get laid off in a corporate downsizing.

Frustrated, angry, and confused, she struggles to justify the familial and personal sacrifices made over the years for her employers, including a 2,141-mile move away from family and friends to the Southwest. Her focus on slowing down her life and enjoying the immediate, rather than worrying about the future, will inspire listeners.

Mira writes that "we are conditioned to believe repetition is immutable", and she proves that change is what energizes her and holds the potential to energize others. Her journey of self-discovery and compromise provides insight to all listeners experiencing similar periods of identity crisis and priority reevaluation. With her self-deprecating sense of humor and undeterred determination, she offers a road map to her listeners as she evolves from a woman married to her job to a woman married to her passions.

    Story
    "Matches almost exactly what I'm going through!"

    Author is a little further down the path than I am, so it was the perfect book for me to listen to. I had a complication from surgery, and I haven't been able to work the last few months. It's opened the door for a lot of thinking, self discovery, and exploring my creativity.

    Mira definitely gave me inspiration and a few good ideas to bring focus to my mind that has been going in a million directions.

    I believe I might have met my soul sister. Mira's way of thinking, how she went about things relating to her career life, to the fragile existence of pinning your identity to your career... It was meant to be at this very moment that I to listen to this book.

    If you're at a place where you've worked incredibly hard, with long hours and many sacrifices to climb the corporate ladder to find yourself wondering if you climbed up the right ladder, let alone the right building, this book is for you.

    There's something very valuable about experience, and hearing the person's retrospective summary. Thank you, Mira for taking the time to make a book out of it! I will likely listen to this several times, as I'm on my journey of self discovery (sadly at the age of 33).
