It’s true: a FREE digital version of my first book, RADICAL CAREERING: 100 Truths to Jumpstart Your Job, Your Career, and Your Life. Inside, you’ll find bite-sized nuggets ideas on creativity and your career, all wrapped in award-winning design.

A few of our favorite from the 100 Radical Truths:

  • Nº 12: Luck is for wimps.
  • Nº 31: You can be comfortable, or outstanding, but not both.
  • Nº 67: Mistakes are tuition.
  • Nº 46: Money follows great work, not the other way around.
  • Nº 100: Make your memoirs worth reading.

The publisher very kindly agreed to let us give you this digital version for a limited time, and it’s the first time this content has been available for free. Tweet, post, and share to your heart’s content.

Happy radical-ing!


  1. Sally,
    You rock.  I’ve watched you keep your career spicy, creative and strategic. So impressive.  All your ideas help so many connect to their own creative fire!  You are a rock star.

  2. Sally,
    I think this is great.  But it seems the book is missing an entire chapter (Chapter 3).  Or am I mistaken?

    • It’s been fixed Brian- thanks for the heads-up!

  3. thanks Sally!
    looking forward to hearing how this & Facinate has helped others think & work outside.

  4. Considering all the people who are looking to make a career change thanks to the wizards at the Wall Street Casino- this gift may inspire many to “Jump- and a net will appear”
    You’ve done your part for the stimulus- thanks Sally.

  5. Sally: I heard about your offer during Zane Safrit’s interview with you. As a social media enthusiast and a radical capitalist (based on a rational philosophy), the book title is music for my ears! :)
    All the Best,

    • Martin, thank you! I loved chatting with Zane. Appreciate your input.

  6. Thanks! I just bought the new book, and i look forward to reading the old one.

  7. Thanks for the freebie version of Radical Careering…a perfect shot in the arm. cheers.

  8. This must be divine intervention.  This could not come at a more appropriate time in my ‘what the hell am I going to do after this job’ life deciding moment. Thanks a lot from a ex-pat in Rwanda.

  9. I jumped and a net appeared after seeing you speak in June of 2006. By August I had a quit date set and a new job by September. You are amazing. I owe you my sanity. Thank you.

  10. Just listened to your podcast interview with Mitch Joel. Great stuff and I found the conversation “fascinating.” :) This couldn’t have come at a better time as I’m trying to redefine my career. Thank you for making this book available and I’ll definitely put your new book into my Amazon queue. Cheers!

  11. Love it, but think #12 has to go. More than one successful person has said this so I think there’s some history behind it: “Luck Is Preparation Meeting Opportunity”

  12. Great perspective Sally.  Enjoyed your presentation at TAOM Calgary.  Thanks for the chuckles and the introspection.

  13. Thanks for this free ebook, Sally. It’s got useful points and looks fabulous.
    You were great at The Art of Marketing in Toronto in March. Looks like you’re back next month for unGEEKED Elite (ungeekedelite.com/toronto).

  14. A brilliant MUST READ for anyone who needs inspiration and motivation.
    Thank you Sally, you are incredible for making Radical Careering available to my students and all students of advertising.
    Hope to see you again in Toronto… maybe you visit us at the school.
    Peace and love,

  15. You are a breath of freash air, Sally. Radical Careering…Facinate…keep it coming. You are an inspiration.   

  16. I had the honor of hearing Sally speak today. She is very inspiring and motivating! I cannot wait to read this…..

  17. Sally, saw you speak at COSE SBC in Cleveland on 10-21.  FABULOUS and I love your spark.  Thanks for sharing this resource.

  18. Sally – had tried to get Radical Careering in several bookshops without success – thanks for the download ! Will DEFINITELY be buying Fascinate.

    Cracking advice !

  19. I had talked about this book in my blog a few years earlier. I think I need a new read. Lost my job about 2 weeks ago but I regretted my choice not long after accepting. Should’ve read the book again after. Happy to get a digital copy since it was from the library and I couldn’t find a copy in store when I looked for it later.
    THANK YOU SALLY, this book was live changing!!! :)

  20. Thank you for your wonderful comments. Caroline, I’m glad that you and Radical Careering were able to reconnect. I’m sending you my very best thoughts for your job search.

  21. sometimes I motivate myslef by taking “before cleaning” and “after cleaning” pictures. And sometimes I take “before cleaning” pictures thinking it will motivate me, and then I’m called away by the baby, the computer, the sewing, the sisters, the soccer, the read-to-me-mommy, the telephone… pretty much everything gets a priority over cleaning around here!
