Making the Leap from a Job You Hate to a Life You Love

by Arment, Ben

Dream Year lays out a one-year process that will help readers make the leap from a job they hate to a life they love.

Many people hate their jobs and feel like they’re not making a difference in the world. They’re frustrated by unrealized dreams that seem hopelessly out of reach. Entrepreneur and coach Ben Arment has developed a one-year process called Dream Year, which helps people make radical changes in their careers and lives. His book outlines practical steps to identify, finance, and execute dream projects in one year, and sustain them for years to come.

It will not only help them rediscover a lifelong dream that got lost along the way, but also see it become a reality. There’s no dream too small and no idea too far-fetched. Dream Year is a book about doing what you love and getting paid for it.

Ben Arment runs a coaching organization called Dream Year that helps people turn their dreams into reality. To further help people access the power of their dreams, he also runs an annual conference for thousands of creators, dreamers, and entrepreneurs called STORY, which convenes every September in Chicago.

Rife with tips, tricks, and goads to action, Arment also offers lists, bullet points, and items to cross off. Readers looking to launch their dreams will find inspiration, and move on to process books down the line.

Review: Publishers Weekly

Ideas alone aren’t sufficient; it’s what you do with them that counts. If you have a brilliant idea but aren’t sure where to begin, Dream Year will show you step-by-step how to make it reality.

Quote: Todd Henry

Ben’s concept of frustration’s unexpected role in our passions was absolutely brilliant. I literally clapped out loud when I read that section. Best part? That was only chapter one. Everything else that followed was just as awesome, which is not surprising given that Ben spent years honing these ideas with real people who have real dreams. People like you and, it turns out, people like me too.

Quote: Jon Acuff

The employee mind-set is disappearing like the factories where it was born. We’ll all expire if we wait for some force outside ourselves—business or government—to bring us jobs or teach us who we are or how we ought to live. Ben Arment’s Dream Year is a powerful launching pad for that mental reboot. Start here.
