Publisher's Summary

Have you ever met someone with the perfect job? To the outside observer, it seems like they've won the career lottery - that by some stroke of luck or circumstance, they've found the one thing they love so much that it doesn't even feel like work, and yet they're getting paid well to do it.
In reality, their good fortune has nothing to do with chance. There's a method for finding your perfect job, and Chris Guillebeau, the best-selling 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.
But finding the work you were "born to do" isn't just about finding your passion. Doing what you love is great, but if you aren't earning a pay check, it's a hobby, not a career. Those who jump out of bed excited to go to work every morning don't just have jobs that tap into their passions. They have jobs where they can lose themselves in the flow of meaningful work for hours at a time.
This intersection of joy, money, and flow is key to what Guillebeau will help you find in this book: work perfectly suited to your unique interests, skills, and experiences. Whether by launching a side hustle that turns into a profitable business, "hacking" your dream position within a traditional job or organization, becoming a "DIY rock star" by fashioning an entirely new profession around your varied interests, or building your own mini empire as an entrepreneur, this book will show you how to find that one job or career that feels so right, it's like you were born to do it.
