Career Success without a Real Job

Career Success without a Real Job: The Career Book for People Too Smart to Work in CorporationsErnie Zelinski, author of Career Success without a Real Job, hasn't had a real job in over 25 years.  Back in the day, Zelinski worked as an Engineer, but hated the firm grip of the corporate world.  With no writing experience, Zelinski left the corporate life to become a writer and speaker.  Though his success started very slow, he has now published 14 books internationally!

I found it interesting that Zelinski had no formal training as a writer.  Most publishers and many critics complained he could not write.  In the beginning, Zelinski self-published his own book.  After a while, the book sales were high enough for publishers to take notice and they began to publish his work.

This guy works 4-5 hours a day.  Never misses a workout and enjoys life to the fullest.  Zelinski is an inspiration that anyone persistent enough can accomplish a dream.  There are several examples through out the book of people who followed in Zelinski's foot steps.

If you are considering leaving the corporate life to pursue your own career or thinking about writing your first book, I would consider Career Success without a Real Job, a valuable read.
