Publisher's Summary

These days it's increasingly rare to have a stable career in any field. More and more of us are blending big company jobs, startup gigs, freelance work, and volunteer side projects. We take chances to expand our knowledge, capabilities, and experience. But how do we make sense of that kind of career-and explain it? Pamela Slim, the acclaimed author of Escape from Cubicle Nation, gives us the tools to have meaningful careers in this new world of work. She shows how to find the connections among diverse accomplishments, sell your story, and continually reinvent and relaunch your brand.

Motivational and Immediately Actionable

This is my second time reading/listening to this book. I have picked up even more the second time around. It could be called a workbook, because you don't passively read. Instead you are encouraged to examine yourself by answering questions and completing exercises that make all the information immediately relative.

Vision with a just do it attitude

Great story of how some people have the natural gift of seeing things and situations from a different perspective and doing something positive about it. While some people have it naturally it can be learned by developing an awareness to look beyond the surface and follow your gut instincts. Nice book.

Examples are good

I give this book 3.5 stars. The stories are good as examples of how other people found meaningful work and built their body of work through different means, such as employment, side gig, volunteerism, and personal relationships. However, the guidance wasn't inspiring. The author used the analog of ingredients and recipes. Skills, strengths, experience, and jobs are the ingredients. The recipes are how you produce your body of work, such results at work, planning an event, organizing your family activities, helping a charity, and writing a book. The analog just didn't work.

5-Star Plus!

This is powerful and practical. I was engaged and inspired the whole way through. If you are interested in maximizing your potential, pay this book serious attention. I’m now a huge fan of Pamela Slim. I emailed her to thank her for her “Body of Work.”

Hope and motivation.

This is the right book for me at the right time. I needed hope and motivation and this book gave that to me. Actionable steps with resources and relatable personal stories from the Author. I would recommend this book to anyone that is looking for the best you.

Thank you Pamela Slim for writing this book.
