What they say...

Imogen S

Registered Nurse, Sydney

"Prior to reading the book, I was feeling trapped, no direction and unsatisfied in my role. I didn't have the headspace or tools to consider where I am and what's next. With each step, Ruth made an impossible task feel possible. I walked away with a real plan to make a change. I feel hope".

Natalie, R

Associate Professor, Brisbane

"I was contemplating a career move. The book was a great way to undertake some dedicated self-reflection time and clarify my direction. It walked me through the key transferrable skills as well as helped me be open to looking at options outside my current organisation. I finished the book more confident to apply for the new role, and I got it!"

Aamira L

Software Engineer, San Francisco

"I felt so seen reading the book. It really helped me unpack my skills and knowledge and initially separate these from my interests. I was then able to see the overlap and get a much clearer sense of what I could move towards. When you work in a very technical field, you have to be quite strategic about focusing on anything else. I now know what my transferable skills are as well as what additional skills I need to go in the direction I now know I want."
