Dear Whatsupsmiley readers:
A little over a year ago, I finally overcame my fear of sharing my words with the world, went to wordpress.com, bought a domain name for $18, and started this blog to share the emotions I was feeling while leaving my job in D.C., and planning a move to San Francisco without another job lined up.
The reaction from readers to several posts I wrote about my journey to find meaningful work inspired me to write my first book, The Quarter-Life Breakthrough. It’s a handbook for twentysomethings (and thirtysomethings).
I recently finished the first draft of the book, and the book went live today on Indiegogo for pre-order!
Check out my Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign here: http://bit.ly/15LL4VU
What’s the book about?
I’m writing a book about what has worked in my own search for meaningful work. It’s a book about finding a way to make a living, working hard, doing something you love. I believe it’s unacceptable that half of Americans are unsatisfied with their jobs, and this handbook is for everyone who feels the same way and for everyone who believes the quarter-life crisis shouldn’t be a crisis, but a breakthrough, a moment of empowerment and opportunity.
Awesome, Smiley. How can I help?
It would mean the world to me if you could spread the word about this project, far and wide. Here are three simple ways you can help, that will only take a few clicks:
- Email: Please email the Indiegogo campaign to 10 friends (the more the better!), family, co-workers… anyone you think needs to read this book.
- Facebook: Share the Indiegogo campaign on Facebook
- Twitter: Share the Indiegogo campaign on Twitter

I cannot express how grateful I am to you for reading these words, and for making this project possible through your love and support over the past 30 years—thank for refusing to settle for mediocrity, thank you for being awesome.
