Best-selling author Chris Guillebeau comes back to Talks at Google to discuss his recent book release, “Born for This”.
ABOUT THE BOOK
In BORN FOR THIS: HOW TO FIND THE WORK YOU WERE MEANT TO DO Chris Guillebeau, the bestselling author of “The $100 Start Up”, has created a practical, actionable guide that can help you turn your passion into paychecks whether within a traditional company or business, or by striking out on your own.
Doing what brings you joy is admirable, but if you aren’t earning a living, it’s a hobby, not a career. BORN FOR THIS carefully outlines what Guillebeau refers to as the “career lottery” – the perfect job that involves the skills you’re best at and enjoy the most while also paying the bills. Guillebeau shows how to narrow your options from what you can do to what you should do, and reminds us that when it comes to the career lottery, you have to enter to win.
