Overview

Though the majority of us work in some capacity, very few can say that they have the ‘dream job’. Jon Acuff always knew he wanted to be a writer. Looking back over his life, he remembered handing in a book to his third grade teacher, laminated and bound like a real book. She had told him to do what he loved, and to write.

Somehow, like most of us, he got stuck along the way, working good jobs and bad jobs - as a mailman, copywriter, even speaker for Dave Ramsey. Quitter is the first of Jon Acuff’s three bestselling books, and explains the steps he took to go from dread to dream job.

"I don’t want you to wake up at 65 and realize: I spent 40 of my best years just doing something that funded my life."
