The Millionaire Dropout: Fire Your Boss, Do What You Love, Change Your Life by Vince Stanzione


Business/self-help isn't my usual genre but Mr. Stanzione approached me with the possibility of my reviewing his book and, after reading it, I give it my endorsement. It's tough out there; God knows I've learned that over the past month, after losing my own day job. Suddenly I'm  getting a lot more interested in books about how to get your life back on track.

The economic outlook is bleak and getting bleaker by the day. This won't come as a surprise to anyone. What we don't always realize is there is hope out there; it's largely a matter of mind-set and putting in the time it takes to earn success. The current economic climate is not for the wimpy, nor the half-hearted. And Vince Stanzione is just the kind of book we all need to get our heads out of the sand and give our careers - and lives - 100%.
How you look at your life and situation is a huge element in your success. The Millionaire Dropout teaches you how to adjust your thinking, to look at your outmoded mindset and readjust it to help change your old, ineffective habits.
But this isn't just another general "think positive" manual.  Stanzione offers concrete advice on how to change at a reasonable pace, breaking it down step by step to help real people make progress without becoming burned out or discouraged. He addresses things like becoming overwhelmed, taking advantage of connections you may not have thought about, considering adding to your education: all real-life, down to earth suggestions to help anyone move forward and become unstuck.
He discusses evaluating your skills, assessing your current career path and considering the possibility you may be in the wrong profession. Current trends, the psychology of what people buy and why and using the internet to your advantage are all very relevant and sometimes over-looked aspects of job hunting. The Millionaire Dropout covers all these avenues and a lot more.
Not all books on the topic of job hunting and finding your niche are created equally: Stanzione's book is a practically, useful and well-written guide to achieving your goals and living your dreams. He writes in understandable language, using real-world examples. Very highly recommended for everyone unhappy with their current employment situation or those who are out of work and pounding the pavement. Maybe you're looking in the wrong direction. The Millionaire Dropout can help anyone in need of useful career - and life - advice.
