Episode #067: Dan Miller, author, 48 Days to the Work You Love (10th Anniversary Revised and Expanded Edition)

Dan MillerYou may recall that Dan Miller was the first ever author to appear on the Read to Lead Podcast.

Episode #067 marks his return; this time to discuss his first book (which is also his latest). In the 10th Anniversary Edition of 48 Days to the Work You Love, there’s plenty of new material, including new chapters. After all, a lot has happened within the world of work the last 10 years.

Think about it. 10 years ago, Podcasting (along with Facebook) was in its infancy, the entire economy we now know as smartphone apps didn’t yet exist, nor did YouTube, Twitter or Instagram. Think about those that have started new companies with the help of sites like Kickstarter. Not even possible in 2004.

Needless to say, a lot has changed. In the new edition, Dan addresses those issues and more.
