An Extraordinary Book for Anyone Willing to Change Their Situation for the Better
, February 7, 2014
I bought this book to give to someone who was just laid off. Expecting to “scan” it myself before passing it on, I immediately discovered it was relevant to my own situation and soon I became inspired to tackle dream projects I had long ago decided were not feasible.An ideal tutorial for young entrants to the work force or the many millions who really are not happy with their current jobs, the book really has something for almost everyone. I wish that every retired person would have acess to this book–they would find that there really are more gratifying and productive things they could be doing–while creating more happiness for themselves and loved ones.Using believable and true stories of individuals who have bravely changed their lives for the better, Leni Miller outlines some detailed steps to take, over time, for those willing to put effort into “listening to their inner voice.”

The Right Book for Your Career
, May 9, 2013
Upon reading Leni Miller’s book, “Finding Right Work”, I wished I had access to this information 20 years ago! This should be the first career book you read as it is thought provoking as well as helpful. It is bound to make a difference in your pursuit of meaningful work. The stories included exemplify how you are able to bundle your joy, passion, and inherent talents into a rewarding career. I highly recommend “Finding Right Work” to anyone who wishes to experience a joyful and long-lasting career.

I was first introduced to Leni during a period of great transition: a new baby, a move to a city where we knew few, an economic meltdown, and a disheartening job search (the perfect storm!).I had worked with other coaches and outplacement services, but Leni gave me pieces of solid, practical advice that allowed me to step back, breathe, re-think, re-tool, remove blocks, strategize, and re-focus in a brilliant new way. I was able to take my core competencies, education, passion for connecting/developing people, and professional experience and indeed find my “Right Work.”
“Finding Right Work” is clearly, thoughtfully, practically, and beautifully written. Quite simply: it is a gift.
Great Read, Even if You’re Not Changing Careers
, January 30, 2013
I must say, I’ve read quite a few books that deal with changing career direction and ‘finding your bliss’ through right livelihood, but this book is the best. Leni Miller deals with the fears, insecurities and apprehensions that plague the process of making a career shift. She deals effectively with work and career choice within the context of of the whole human being and she does so with diverse and fascinating stories of successful people. Her writing is clear and easy to read and her conversational tone draws you back to it. It’s a worthwhile read with good exercises and sage advice. I’ll definitely be reading it again.
Just what I needed, when I needed it, January 9, 2013
While the concepts aren’t new, the delivery resonated with me in a way that I’ve rarely found in career focused books. Leni has a very enjoyable “voice” and her warmth and caring for others comes through in her writing. Lighthearted and a joy to read, but also thoughtful and powerful. Highly recommend.
How do I not give five stars?, November 26, 2012
Just finished reading this amazing book – that to me can best be described as “inspiring!” Leni is a gifted writer and teacher. Finding Right Work is the kind of book that you will want to read more than once. I enjoyed how she shared the experiences of others, while walking you through the steps (both logically and emotionally) toward, as she writes, “a life you love!” I would recommend it to all!
