You Deserve to Love Your Job by Alexis Grant: Book Review

Everyone deserves to love their job! But what if you won’t ever enjoy it no matter what you do?

Well this new book from author Alexis Grant will teach you how to cope, to create your own luck and succeed in the new world of work.

What is You Deserve to Love Your Job About?

Although this book is a short read, it’s one that you’ll continue to refer to and re-read over and over. Each chapter is quick to deliver a new strategy for you to start loving your job.

I was able to read through this book in one sitting, and have already implemented several of the big ideas in my own life. If you’re tired of being unhappy with your work, or not sure what you want to do with your life, You Deserve to Love Your Job will provide the answers you’re looking for.

Even if your job (or boss) sucks, you can still use it as a stepping stone to get to where you want. And the best part is, that Alexis Grant doesn’t just write a great book — she has taken each of these steps in her own life, and seen massive results.

She walks the walk and shows that the old career rules no longer apply. It’s time to stop following the masses and starting enjoying your career.
