For the last 3 or so years- every time a friend got fired, downsized, laid off, or was searching for a job that would make them happy – I’d hand them a copy of “Radical Careering” by Sally Hogshead.
If you are in advertising, you’d know who she is. Won every major ad award by age 27, and if you remember the launch of the BMW Mini Cooper in this country- you were probably reading her copy.
At one time, she was opening up the West Coast office of Crispin Porter + Bogusky– which is almost the owner of the hottest agency of the last decade- doing work for Burger King, VW, Microsoft and even the new Domino’s ads where they admit their pizza used to blow.
Yep- Sally had reached the mountaintop in advertising- then chucked it all to become an author, speaker, consultant. She did a radical career change- and now, she’s giving away a PDF of Radical Careering- to help launch book 2: Fascinate.
It’s true: a FREE digital version of my first book, RADICAL CAREERING: 100 Truths to Jumpstart Your Job, Your Career, and Your Life. Inside, you’ll find bite-sized nuggets ideas on creativity and your career, all wrapped in award-winning design.
Fascinate launches on Tuesday- and I don’t know how long this free book will be available, so get over to her site and download the pdf and enjoy the 100 Radical Truths to Jumpstart your career.
My favorite- number 15: Aspire to be the dumbest person in the room.
