Publisher Comments:

Studies show that seventy-five percent of Americans are dissatisfied with their work lives, and Jonathan Fields was no different. A successful lawyer, Fields was literally getting sick from the stress of his high-pressure life—so he walked away. Now a successful entrepreneur, Fields is living the life he always imagined—and in Career Renegade, he teaches how to turn nearly any passion into a highly rewarding career.

Readers will discover:

•The career renegade paths to passion and prosperity, such as how to turn teaching into a fabulously lucrative career.

•How to use technology to turn a seemingly moneyless passion into a gold mine, like the sportswriter who turned blogging into a six-figure income.

•How to rapidly test your idea for free, from the comfort of your couch.

•How to establish yourself as the go-to person in the area of your passion by building recognition both on- and offline.

Life’s too short to spend your days doing something you don’t care about. Packed with hundreds of resources, innovative strategies, case studies, and tools for success, Career Renegade reveals how to earn a great living doing what you love.

Review:

"For all the corporate drones who feel drained and devalued by their jobs and long to pursue their passions, Fields, a high-powered attorney turned successful entrepreneur, offers a motivational and practical guide to starting your own business. The author tells his own story of corporate disillusionment and physical deterioration (capped by a stress-exacerbated heart attack, which he interpreted as his 'body literally rejecting' his career) to a new life as a fitness entrepreneur. Fields moves beyond self-help rhetoric to proffer helpful, no-nonsense steps for aspiring business owners, acknowledging that 'career renegades' must not only identify their own 'secret passion' but must also translate it into a profitable and sustainable enterprise. In addition to sharing inspirational career renegade cases studies, such as 'Liv's Story,' in which a frustrated artist discovers a profitable niche decorating custom cakes, Fields provides pragmatic strategies for creating a realistic business plan, exploiting technology and employing affordable guerilla marketing. While the author does not spend much time addressing the financial risks, chances of failure or enormous commitment of personal energy and resources involved in entrepreneurship, he does provide an engaging firsthand look at the rewards in doing what you love for a living."

Permission - and Assistance - to Celebrate Yourself

Jonathan Fields has created a 'how to' book that goes far beyond the borders of explaining a plan for self-improvement. CAREER RENEGADE: How to Make a Great Living Doing What You Love is a timely transfusion for many people caught in the current economic stagnation or those who face the enforced retirement package. In a smart, very readable book Fields gets real about infusing a sense of well being and confidence in every reader who takes the time to pick up this friendly manual.

Somewhere along the way each of us was told that our lives could/should be divided between career and hobby, that making a living was key in allowing us to find space to live out the dreams in little sheltered moments. The work ethic has become the beastie that governs our lives and too often leads to fractured relationships and even physical distress.

Enter Jonathan Fields, a man who at the peak of success in law and fortune fell ill enough to have that wake up call to change. And change he did, embracing all the things he loved doing, finding (surprisingly enough!) that he could (and did) make a fine living from following his dreams. This book is about taking the risk of stepping out of the corporate cubicle or its equivalent and jumping into the middle of a fountain of youth via discovering what it is we really love and committing ourselves to pursue that which makes us happy to the point that it is the source of our income.

Yes, there are well-devised steps outlined in this book: it is after all a guide to taking control of life. But it is the manner in which Fields writes and offers examples and suggestions in such a user-friendly way that makes this book so valuable. It challenges the reader to follow dreams and it backs up that challenge with some excellent resource data to assist the willing to fulfill their desire. This is a happy book and could not come at a better time!
