Champion Your Career: Winning in the World of Work by Halimah Bellows is a very hands-on book. It is a book that you will need a notebook and a pen or a pencil to truly understand and appreciate the knowledge that is inside this fantastic book. I believe that this book is one of the best self-help books I read thus far. It provides meaningful information, tests, questions and food for thought for people who want to know what they should do with their life on a professional level.
This book will help you pinpoint if the work you are in now is right for you or you need to change it. If you decide to change work description, then this book will help you find your new niche. I liked this book also because it is an optimist book since it adamantly supports that changing careers is never too late. It covers pretty much all the various age groups, and its plethora of useful strategies, easy-to-use tools, and questionnaires, proved on the field and reliable advice, and a fantastic number of useful resources is breathtaking, to say the least.
The author did a fantastic job by presenting numerous questions that are clearly designed to get you from point A to point B and to find out where are you good and where are you weak and do something about it. I especially enjoyed and found really useful the chapter entitled: Nourish your network which was something I always had a problem pursuing. After reading this book’s perspective on the issue, I am going to start developing the notions and ideas that are covered in this book. Highly Recommend it.
