Betting On You: How to Put Yourself First and (Finally) Take Control of Your Career (Library Catalog / Hoopla)
Chances are you've spent the past few months cooped up inside, buried under a relentless news cycle and work that never seems to switch off. Millions of us worldwide are overworked, exhausted, and trying our hardest—yet not getting the recognition we deserve. It’s time for a fix. Top career coach and HR consultant Laurie Ruettimann knows firsthand that work can get a hell of a lot better. A decade ago, Ruettimann was uninspired, blaming others and herself for the unhappiness she felt. Until she had an epiphany: if she wanted a fulfilling existence, she couldn’t sit around and wait for change. She had to be her own leader. She had to truly take ahold of life—the good, the bad, and the downright ugly—in order to transform her future. Packed with advice and stories of others who regained control of their lives, Betting on You is a game-changing must-read for how to radically improve your day-to-day, working more effectively and enthusiastically starting now.
“Part manifesto and part manual for anyone who is willing to put their own health and happiness ahead of a miserable job. . . . [Ruettimann is] right there with you, sharing her own journey, stumbles included, to a life that has room for healthy behaviors, hobbies, relationships, volunteering, and even binge-watching TV.”

Covid-19 has heightened career uncertainty in a work landscape dominated by turbulence and change, and it is directly impacting how people are entering—or re-entering—the workplace. But as Lindsey Pollak makes clear, the pandemic merely accelerated career and hiring trends that have been building. Changes that were once slowly spreading have been rapidly implemented across all industries. Like your personal GPS, Pollak equips you to handle workplace obstacles, helping you see them as challenges to navigate rather than impossible roadblocks. There is no perfect path to a dream career, but with Recalculating you’ll be prepared with the necessary skills and tools to succeed.
“Living, working, and attempting to thrive during a pandemic mean all bets are off. Uncertainty is our common denominator. No one is better suited to be our guide through these challenging times than the bestselling author Lindsey Pollak. In Recalculating, she provides the master road map for anyone seeking a new role or new job, or taking on a career transition. It’s a must-read.” — Susan McPherson, CEO and author of The Lost Art of Connecting: The Gather, Ask, Do Method for Building Meaningful Business Relationships
