No Fears, No Excuses: What You Need to Do to Have a Great Career

Larry Smith

"Larry Smith has hit on the new millennium's major career issue." --Booklist

"Have you ever had a conversation with someone about your life that leaves you feeling so elated that you have goosebumps? This is a typical result of how I feel after chatting with Larry." --M. Azam Javed, Tesla

"Had it not been for the time I was able to spend with Professor Smith during my university years gaining his advice on career success, I would not be where I am today." --Mike McCauley, Google

Over the past three decades, Professor Larry Smith has become something of a "career whisperer" for his students at the University of Waterloo. His stunning TEDx talk on finding your calling has been viewed by more than six million people and counting.

This book captures the best of his advice in a one-stop roadmap for your future. Showcasing his particular mix of tough love and bracing clarity, Smith itemizes all the excuses and worries that are holding you back--and deconstructs them brilliantly. After dismantling your hidden mental obstacles, he provides practical, step-by-step guidance on how to go about identifying and then pursuing your true passion. There's no promising it will be easy, but the straight-talking, irrepressible Professor Smith buoys you with the inspiration necessary to stay the course.
