An inspirational audiobook that lays out the "Jump Curve" - four steps to wholeheartedly pursuing the career of your dreams - through experiences from a variety of people who have jumped and never looked back
When Mike Lewis was 24 and working in a prestigious corporate job, he eagerly wanted to leave and pursue his dream of becoming a professional squash player. But he had questions: When is the right time to move from work that is comfortable to a career you have only dared to dream of? How have other people made such a jump? What did they feel when making that jump - and afterward?
Mike sought guidance from others who had "jumped", and the responses he got - from a banker who started a brewery, a publicist who became a bishop, a garbage collector who became a furniture designer, and on and on - were so clear-eyed and inspiring that Mike wanted to share what he had learned with others who might be helped by those stories. First, though, he started playing squash professionally.
The right audiobook at the right time, When to Jump offers more than 40 heartening stories (from the founder of Bonobos, the author of The Big Short, the designer of the Lyft logo, the Humans of New York creator, and many more) and takeaways that will inspire, instruct, and reassure, including the ingenious four-phase Jump Curve.

Do you hear a voice inside you?
This book spoke to me like few others have before and this is mainly due to the amazing stories from real people on their JUMP experience. An unexpected bonus was to have the stories read from the actual people who JUMPED! I was able to relate to many different aspects of the stories including the 'voice', ideas and knowing there is something more than my current situation. You will hear from people in all walks of life who knew they had to not only listen to that voice inside but they had to do something about it. They had to make a JUMP!
Interwoven with the stories is some solid advice that can be used to guide you in your JUMP. I've started my plan to JUMP because I know that I can no longer ignore or push down the voice inside me that is wanting out.
If you hear that voice inside telling you to JUMP, you are not alone.

Write a book when you have a compelling story....
This guy was a spoiled kid with just a handful of years into his work life. He has no bills, no children, no mortgage, etc....so he decided to make this oh so risky “jump” into the unknown. Come back and speak to me when you’ve had your ass kicked a few times, been divorced once, have 4 children, been through bankruptcy.....then decide to jump at great risks to not only myself, but my family. That’s a compelling back story. Not an Ivy League little boy who had all kinds of parachutes to pull if had been in trouble. Blah....garbage.
