Few of us will regret not having spent more time at the office upon reaching heaven's gate. Yet as we focus on making a good living, we often forget to make a life. Why not transform work into a pursuit that feeds the spirit and the pocketbook, and benefits society too? Former professor at Harvard Business School, highly successful Fortune 500 consultant, and part owner of lucrative businesses, Mark Albion had it all - but the 'it' he had wasn't what his body and soul needed to thrive. So he did the unthinkable. He gave up what he did so well and started over. Drawing on intimate interviews with fast-trackers he met on his search for happiness, Albion shares how these men and women found the courage, motivation, and passion to re-create successful professional lives.

Making a Life, Making a Living proves that you can find work you really love. Inspiring, eye-opening, and sprinkled with insightful quotes from such diverse sources as Mother Teresa, Warren Buffett, and Martin Luther King, Jr., this audio program will help you create a livelihood that enriches both the world and yourself.
