This book asks 12 Australians who have made a leap in their working lives exactly how and why they did it, practically, strategically, financially and emotionally. Based on her popular blog of the same name, Kylie Lewis shines a spotlight on a dozen different ways to rethink a career and to reinvent a livelihood, despite feelings of fear. From resigning a job without a clear plan of what do to next; moving to a new country for employment; pursuing a long-held business idea; to taking a sabbatical or recommencing study later in life.Each interviewee's leap may not have been instant or dramatic: it may instead have been a series of small hops over a period of time; some sideways sliding, a little backwards and forwards cha cha, or it could have been an almighty bungy jump. The common theme, however, is honesty, intention and above all, courage in the face of fear. Comprising six updated interviews from the Leap Stories blog alongside six brand new interviews, The Leap Stories hopes to inspire readers to explore hunches, scratch those itches, back themselves, have a crack and do more than just entertain the possibility of what if.
