Brock, who recently left a very successful corporate career to pursue her goal of helping others to lead passion-driven lives, draws on her own experience to write about living life to its fullest, trusting your instincts, and following your dreams. She doesn’t tolerate senseless self-pity—and she
speaks authentically here, because she’s been through personal struggles herself. Instead, Brock offers practical advice on getting to know yourself, finding your path, and staying motivated in your corporate job. This is a must-read for anyone who needs a little push and a lot of inspiration!

Penelope Trunk, co-founder of Brazen Careerist, has been touted the queen of unhindered commentary—her personal blog’s tagline is “advice at the intersection of work and life,” and she pretty much covers it all. Trunk is smart, brutally honest, transparent, and a little bit nuts—and she can be very controversial (her blog posts range from “Don’t Do What You Love” to “Choose Sex Over Money”). But agree with her or not, she ultimately offers some interesting nuggets of advice for just about everyone.
