Who needs a ‘real’ job? Not author Scott Gerber! (Interview)
Scott Gerber puts into words what a lot of people need to hear:
Not everybody is going to succeed in Corporate America – and more than a few of you are foolish to even try.
He’s not calling you a loser – that would be your father’s job. He’s saying there is another way to go about pursuing a job, a career, a life – something that fits you best, but doesn’t necessarily fit into your parents’ definition of a job.
In his new book, Never Get a Real Job, Gerber presents an unorthodox approach to the working life. As a guy who has always gone his own way – but for two very short-lived jobs working for someone else – I enjoyed his candor and his advice.
Gerber will probably be the first to tell you that no book of this kind can be a perfect one-size-fits-all. But for a lot of people foundering in dead-end jobs for faceless corporations, reading Never Get a Real Job just might light a fire. You might figure out the right career move for yourself and get some solid tips on how to achieve it.
SCOTT GERBER audio excerpt: “Nobody even talks about why young people now more than ever need to be entrepreneurial. It blows my mind! What rock are these people living under?”
