Highly Recommend!

I’ve never written a review for a book before but I felt compelled to for this one. (I swear no one paid me to write this). I wish I could give a copy of this book to every young person I know who is still figuring out their career path. This book is really relatable and easy to digest and has a lot of humor and optimism. It was exactly what I needed. It completely changed my view on what it means to have a meaningful career, and provided me with a lot of practical advice and insights. I realized how many options I have in pursuing work. It gave me the hope I was lacking to stop feeling like a failure and to move forward and pursue what I want.

Inspiring

The Quarter Life Breakthrough has so many helpful pieces. It's validated many of my own feelings of needing a breakthrough and I'll be listening to it again soon. I like the simplicity of the book and the activities that it has. Also, really enjoyed that the author was the reader of the book. Thanks Smiley!
