In this perennial bestseller, Nancy Anderson shows readers how following their passion and finding that special niche in whatever realm they are truly passionate about is the most effective and rewarding approach to business and career success. Work with Passion follows the step-by-step program she initiates in her career counseling practice, carefully guiding readers through each stage. The program follows the ten "Passion Secrets" of successful people, and topics include clarifying goals, trusting instincts, doing research, and meeting others who are equally passionate about their work. This fully revised edition includes a new introduction by the author.
"I have found that we love to hear success stories," Anderson writes, and each chapter tells those powerful stories of people who have overcome adversity and realized their dreams. Work with Passion has a wealth of inspirational guidance, from the broadest kinds of visionary encouragement to very practical tips on networking, developing a resume, and writing a query letter that gets results. This comprehensive course in career consulting is for everyone who would rather brag about their career than complain about their job.
