Full of interactive prompts and activities to help you answer the age-old question—"So, what are you going to do with your life?"—in a groundbreaking way.
“Their insights about finding a life, not a job, may be as relevant for the new high school and college graduates as they are for entrenched mid-life careerists looking for a better way to live.”
After thousands of interviews, we've realized that anyone can self-construct a fulfilling career and life through an ever-evolving, three-step process: Let Go, Define, Become.
Letting go means shedding the noise you've heard your whole life, clearing away what doesn't feel right, and beginning to understand what success truly means for you.
Define is about starting with your interests, then combining and exploring them to find ways of living and working you may have never imagined for yourself.
No matter what challenges you may face, this section will get you past fears and doubts, equip you with the tools you need, and help you put in the work to reach your version of success.

“Don’t let opportunities pass you by. They’re not always going to come and knock on the door—you have to go look. It’s about wanting, knowing, and preparing yourself to get that prize or that dream.”
“People told me I couldn’t be a mechanic because I’m a girl. Don’t let anyone tell you your dreams aren’t good enough or they’re not the right dreams to have. If something is your passion, do it.”
