It's hard to separate work from life, maybe because work is part of everything we do, both at home and in the workplace. But one thing is certain-- when we improve the quality of our work, we improve the quality of our lives. Having held 18 different jobs in various fields, author Amanda Dickson is keenly aware that not all work is equally enjoyable. In the trademark enthusiastic style that has made her a top-ranked radio personality and sought-after speaker, she offers practical suggestions for finding joy in whatever work you do. Included are ways to identify the work you were born to do and basic changes in attitude that will help you deal with less-than-ideal working conditions. Amanda's fresh outlook and laugh-out-loud humor will change the way you think about work . . . and life.

This was absolutely one of the most fantastic, uplifting, and inspiring books I've read in a while! Amanda has a way of suggesting simple ways you can improve your attitude that will change your life, and in turn, the lives of all those around you. I found myself guilty of a lot of her examples of negative thoughts, and I am so excited to be myself and to be happy!I even enjoyed mowing the lawn after reading this book!

I am a retail management supervisor and working with the public and co-workers can wear you down. Amanda's humor about the grocery business and being greatful to have a job and sharing ideas with others is great. I purchased 4 books and 1 cd set for others that I work with and so far I have seen a great change in their lives and how much happier they seem to be. Thanks for a great book.

This book changed me....for the better. I try to appreciate more rather than instantly criticize. All I can say is, "Thank you Amanda, thank you".
