Publisher's Summary

An action-oriented guide to help anyone find their calling and achieve their goals, inspired by the author's popular blog post with the same title

The Career Manifesto presents an inspiring and refreshingly simple approach to finding your passion and purpose and then jump-starting a dream career to achieve those, by asking three essential questions:

  • What do you want your impact to be?
  • What are the potential pathways that move you toward your purpose?
  • How can you hold yourself accountable for your goals?

Award-winning CEO of XO Group and sought-after speaker Michael Steib draws on his own diverse work experience and career highlights as well as powerful anecdotes from other successful business leaders to offer expert guidance, field-tested advice, and interactive exercises that will help you answer these three key questions, envision a goal, and then craft and execute a plan to achieve it. For young professionals, entrepreneurs, and creatives seeking more purpose and meaning in their work and lives, The Career Manifesto is the essential way to build - and follow through on - an effective plan to excel at whatever job, project, or career goal you put your mind to.

Highest marks for helpfulness in re-centering your career and telling the story with humor

Mike Steib is a friend of mine and that’s why I listened to this audiobook. But it has nothing to do with why I am recommending that you listen to this book. And in full disclosure, he never asked me to write this review.

I typically do not choose books on leadership or ones that fall into the business or self-help genre. I usually read and listen to novels and non-fiction books about history, news, and sports. I quickly found this is not just a book about a path to a new and improved career. It really is a story about pursuing a better, more disciplined life. Mike’s wit and intellect that I came to know in our college days, come through in his outstanding writing, and even more so, in his entertaining narration. I say this with the utmost respect and praise as I am an audiobook narrator myself; Mike’s cadence, pacing, tone and inflection in reading his own words bring you right into the pages. It’s as if he has done this before. He is concise in his discussion of ideas with some strategies that we can all implement - and he is a model in his ambition and success. Plus, I laughed several times out loud. This is an excellent audiobook that I highly recommend.
