Somewhere along your road to adulthood, you pushed your dreams to the side. You had to pay bills. You feared taking a risk on yourself. And so you settled into an unfulfilling, perhaps even unpleasant career. If it's any comfort, you’re far from alone; 66 percent of Americans hate their jobs.

"Ideas alone aren’t sufficient; it’s what you do with them that counts. If you have a brilliant idea but aren’t sure where to begin, Dream Year will show you step-by-step how to make it reality." (Todd Henry, author of Die Empty and The Accidental Creative)
This book was full of inspiration and interesting stories. Best of all every chapter ended with a call to action and questions to help guide you through turning your dream into a reality.
One of the most motivating and inspiring books I've read to pursue your dreams. The audiobook narrator did a wonderful job depicting the tone behind the words. Well done author and narrator!
P.S. I've never commented on a book, but this one inspired me so much I had to recommend to others.
This is a book that is good enough to have 30 different bookmarks in it! He refers to so many different areas of business that can cause hiccups and even disaster. Have a listen to this book over and over again at different bookmarks?
This book is definitely for someone wanting to take the leap into entrepreneurship, to start a business and probably to do it on the internet. I don't fit into that category, although the chapters I got through did have some nuggets I felt I could use.
I tend to be selective about "self help" type books, I thought this one would be different but I couldn't get into it.
The narrator over performed to the point that I couldn't focus on the subject matter. A lot of long dramatic pauses. Lost my interest early on.
If you are looking for a nudge to start that business and you are inspired by this type of book, then you may enjoy it.
It talks about achieveing your dream in generalities. Unfortunately, it's another case of someone making millions fromf buying their book and then joining their service.
