Welcome to the online press kit for Jody B. Miller
From DRIFT to SHIFT
In her new book, Career and Life Coach Jody B. Miller shares her roadmap to achieve true meaning and happiness in work and life
Imagine that you are on your morning commute and you can’t wait to get to work. You don’t even think of it as work, because you love it so much. Imagine you are in a relationship that you only dreamed of in fairytales, and you know with certainty that it will last forever.
Some of us enjoy these experiences already, while others of us must wake up and face reality. We’re just not there yet.
We all desire to be happy in our work and in our personal lives. Yet a recent Gallup Poll reports that at least a third of us are not. We spend more than 30 percent of our lives doing something we hate, or we stay in relationships that make us miserable, just drifting along.
Why do we stay in professional and personal situations that we loathe? Is it a fear of risking the unknown? Is it a refusal to follow our hearts? Is it a need for security? Is it a lack of self-esteem? Career and Life Coach Jody B. Miller explains why this is, and how we can change it, in her new book, “From DRIFT to SHIFT: How Change Can Bring True Meaning and Happiness to Your Work and Life.”
“The bottom line is that most of us refuse ourselves the chance to follow our hearts and do the things we know will truly give our lives meaning and make us happy,” she says. “We often don’t feel useful or worthy in life, which forces us to sink into a despair that is trapping and seemingly-impossible to escape from.”
“From DRIFT to SHIFT” is written to “pluck anyone out of this dangerous way of thinking, inspire them to take tangible change and reinvent themselves as a person who is wealthy, happy and gets up every morning with nothing but boundless excitement for the day ahead,” Jody says.
The roadmaps in the book are supported by stories of people who have overcome major challenges and obstacles to achieve purpose, success and happiness every day. These people include leading venture capitalists, CEOs, Ph.D.s, artists and more. The Foreword to “From DRIFT to SHIFT” is written by leading venture capitalist and author Brad Feld.
“From DRIFT to SHIFT” is written for anyone seeking happiness and looking to find meaning in work and life, from college students and stay-at-home parents to C-Level managers, educators and other professionals. It’s for anyone who faces challenges and needs inspiration to overcome them.
