Read This! Turning Pro

July 5, 2013

Turning ProThis is the first time I’ve ever recommended two books in a row from the same author. I love Steven Pressfield’s honest, in-your-face, writing style and have now read: The Art of War, Do the Work, and Turning Pro. Although The Art of War remains my favorite, all three have value. Turning Pro navigates the passage from the amateur life to a professional practice. Turning pro means giving up a life that we may have become extremely comfortable with. Turning pro requires risk and takes courage. One of my favorite quotes is found on page 53, “The amateur fears that if he turns pro and lives out his calling, he will have to live up to who he really is and what he is truly capable of.” Here’s to living up to who you really are and becoming all you’re capable of. Let’s turn pro!

Read. Enjoy.
