Until recently, Tess Vigeland was a longtime host with
Public Radio's Marketplace; it was a rewarding, high-status
job, and Tess was very good at it—but she'd begun to feel
restless. Without any definite, clear sense of what she
wanted to do next (but an absolute certainty that what she'd
been doing was no longer truly satisfying), she walked away
from her dream job and into a vast unknown. Suddenly she was
no longer “Marketplace’s Tess Vigeland,” she was just Tess
For the multitude of Americans who change jobs mid-career
(by choice or circumstance), the growing legions of
freelance workers, and the entrepreneurially-minded who see
self-employment as an increasingly more appealing and viable
option, Tess Vigeland has created a personal and
well-researched account of leaping without a net. With her
signature humor, she writes honestly about the fear,
uncertainty, and risk involved in leaving the traditional
workforce—but also the excitement, resources, and
possibilities that are on the other side. Part memoir and
part field guide, this book offers a funny, thoughtful, and
provocative look at how to find happiness, satisfaction, and
success when pursuing a career less ordinary.
