When to Jump: If the Job You Have Isn’t the Life You Want

On a recent edition of the Morning Program, Morning Mike interviewed author Mike Lewis about his brand new book, “When to Jump: If the Job You Have Isn’t the Life You Want.” When Lewis was twenty-four and working in a prestigious corporate job, he eagerly wanted to leave and pursue his dream of becoming a professional squash player. But he had questions: When is the right time to move from work that is comfortable to a career you have only dared to dream of? How have other people made such a jump? What did they feel when making that jump—and afterward? The result is an inspirational book that lays out the “Jump Curve”—four steps to wholeheartedly pursuing the career of your dreams—through experiences from a variety of people who have jumped and never looked back. The book is available online and in bookstores, and you’ll find his website a valuable resource, including blogs, stories, podcasts, and more.
