Are you dissatisfied with your job? Do you feel unmotivated and "burned out" at work? Do you find your boss unappreciative, your coworkers annoying, and/or your staff hard to manage? Are you finding it increasingly difficult to drag yourself to work in the morning, concentrate on the job while you're in the office, and close the door on it when you go home at night?
Would you be surprised to know that you're not alone? According to CareerBuilder.comís Life at Work 2004 surveys, there is an estimated minimum of 32 million workers just like you who are unhappy with their daily work life. One quarter of the respondents to the CareerBuilder surveys were dissatisfied with their jobs. In addition, 29% of men and 33% of women surveyed were unhappy with their work/life balance and more than 60% reported feeling "burned out."
If you're one of these people, this book was written for you. But be forewarned: BE YOUR YOUR OWN BOSS At Your Current Job is not a one-size-fits-all guide to chucking your job and successfully plying the job market or starting your own business. It is an exploration of a variety of positive ways that you can take control of your current work environment and change it for the better. (Scroll down to order, to the bottom to check-out)
In BE YOUR OWN BOSS, author W.C. "Bill" Evans demonstrates and illustrates common-sense methods of transforming the job you have into the job you want.
W.C. "Bill" Evans is a Master of Tae Kwon Do, a discipline he's taught for 16 years. Where's the connection between Tae Kwon Do and being your own boss? In the word discipline. Bill started his first business at the age of 18; his experience in the workplace covers self-employment, working in the corporate environment, and the curious territory between. He is currently a technical recruiter, supplying self-managed contractors for the Pentagon's effort to restructure in the wake of the 9/11 disaster. With over 18 years of human resources experience, Bill has coached hundreds of employees on how to take control of their jobs and work environment. BE YOUR OWN BOSS At Your Current Job is the product of that experience.
