Here is what others say about “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark.”

Want to change your life? Want to start a new career while your friends are already planning their retirements? Wish you could just talk to somebody about it, somebody who understands what you’re going through? I’ve been there. This book can help. – Hardie Karges

What I really liked about this particular compendium of stories on pursuing your passion was the real-life stories. And I’m not talking about those “real-life” stories like you see on TV that are just too Pollyanna to be believed. I could certainly empathize with a number of the circuitous routes that brought the contributing authors to realizing their life and work passion. Definitely worth a read, especially now as we kick off a New Year. – Heidi Thorne

Good read…passionate people are inspiring. Think about what moves you and take a bold step to get involved. This book will give you inspiration. – Jeff Lossau

This book is an excellent tool to help you discover what makes you tick. So many people have jobs that they hate. If you’ve hit the doldrums in your life, if you daydream at work about what you REALLY want to do, pick up this book and read how it’s possible to follow your heart and do what you love. – Lisa Deon

If I have one criticism of Ignite Your Passion it would be to say that it left me wanting more. Each essay presented here is well crafted and insightful and inspirational. Reading it is akin to sticking one’s toe in the water. Be assured that the water’s fine. – Douglas J. Elwell

What I really love about this book, is the 25 different perspectives offered. Each chapter is bite-sized, and you’re sure to resonate with some of the authors’ stories. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for inspiration, or guidance in finding their passion. – Matthew J Lossau

If you really want to learn how to discover your passion and get going on pursuing it, this is the book for you! The stories of the authors will help you see how to identify what you love and then go for it. Barbara K

Would you like to share your personal account of finding, following or living your passion? Do you know someone who exudes passion in all they do? We are collecting personal narratives for our next volume of “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark.”
