Activate Your Passion, Create Your Career by Madison Hildebrand is a powerful memoir/self-help/how-to guide. Most people know Madison as the
handsome and sweet Real Estate Broker on Bravo TV’s “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles”, but what you may not know is included in the book. People who are ultra-successful usually have stumbled a few times to get to the top and Madison is no different. He describes his journey with painstaking honesty and shows a courageous side to growing up in the shadow of over-achieving parents. If you loved Madison before reading his book, you will love him even more afterwards for being real about how hard it is to make it as a top sales person while being a recovering addict. The theme is finding your passion and clearly, Madison found his. His eyes light up at the thought of connecting with others, helping them find one of the most important purchases we make in our entire lives, and building lasting relationships.
Though he works in glamorous Malibu, there is something so down to earth about him that anyone would want to hire him. In the book, he explains how tough it is to start out in a big office with no experience or contacts and sell an expensive property, beating a whole lot of shark agents. He gives personal examples and wisdom from experience about real estate, although this book is more of an inspirational guide for anyone. Activate Your Passion, Create Your Career by Madison Hildebrand offers motivation to find the joy and follow that path, no matter what it is. It is never too late to change careers, to get sober, or to have the best adult life possible, even after growing up as a lonely kid.
