"If you're considering becoming your own boss, my view is that starting out whilst holding down a day job is the best way to start as you give yourself time to build confidence and cash. Any book that promotes the idea of part-time entrepreneurship has to be a good thing!"

Don't Give Up Your Day Job
Practical ways to lead a fulfilling life and still pay the mortgage
by Cali Bird

Don't Give Up Your Day Job is full of good news for jaded souls who are on the verge of giving up on their hidden desires. It encourages readers to change their lives without giving up their jobs, so that they can keep the security of their pay packet. The techniques Cali details can be used by anyone, regardless of their income and current responsibilities.

In a pared-down, no-nonsense style, this is a practical and realistic ‘how to’ manual to determine what people really want for their lives and how they can go about making a start achieving it, in a non-scary and sensible way. As well as offering lots of ideas and easy ways to take action on your goals, Cali advises readers on how to thwart their inner demons and come out on top.

Aimed for male and female readers who want to transform their life whilst still working full or part time, this self-help book is aimed at professionals in their 30s-40s. Cali takes inspiration from Nick Williams who wrote The Work We Were Born To Do and Emma Jones’ book Working 5 to 9.

“With tender hands, a clear mind and an encouraging heart, Cali beautifully invites you to take hold of your most cherished dreams and move forward with them to create the life you know you can have.” Nick Williams, The Work We Were Born To Do and co-founder of inspired-entrepreneur.com

What they're saying about Don't Give Up Your Day Job:

"Don't Give Up Your Day Job is a compelling read for anybody who wants to transform their life whilst still working part or full time. Cali Bird is a living testimony of somebody who has transformed her life from within the working world. So many coaching books are formidable because they encourage people to make radical changes or quantum leaps in their lives. Often these steps can appear daunting or over ambitious. This book provides a rich collection of case studies and clever insights from the author's own journey of success. Learning to tackle your inner gremlins with brilliance and fun makes this book unique in my opinion."
