Get out of Your Own Way

by Dave Hollis


You'd think that if you were the head of sales at The Walt Disney Company you'd be happier than anybody around. How hard would it be to stay on top of the world getting to work on movies like Frozen, Inside Out, and everything from Marvel?

This was the case for Dave Hollis. He was really good at what he did for Disney, but instead of having fulfilment, he was miserable. Against everyone's assumptions about what he should do, Dave quit and began working for his wife's business.

The lessons he learned along the way about breaking out of a rut are all within his new book Get Out of Your Own Way: A Skeptic's Guide to Growth and Fulfilment. You'll discover, by following along with his journey, the hidden beliefs you have that are holding you back, how to beat them, and how wonderful life can be once you do.
