I’ve never read a book that I’ve seriously RAVED about, until I read this one! This book is for anyone who KNOWS they can do better in life but are too hesitant to make the big jump. Kim talks about the 4 different reasons people make a big career/ entrepreneur jump. She addresses the fears and concerns one might have before actually making this change. She consistently talks about the importance of perception and challenges you throughout the book to self analyze the thoughts that are truly holding you back. Ever since I moved to CA, I fly back home pretty often. Every time I have a flight coming up, I pick a new book. Out of all the books I’ve read this year, none of them compare to JUMP! This book challenged me in a whole new way! I have never felt so motivated! @kimperell thank you for being such an inspiration! While I was reading this book, I kept telling people “it’s like she’s in my head!”. You would address a fear or concern of mine, before I could even think of the next one, you were already on it! We all need a push sometimes. Especially being far away from home, I really needed this. I recommend this book to anyone looking to make a career change or starting your own business. I honestly recommend it to ANYONE really. Even if you are comfortable with your current lifestyle, I challenge you to read it. Maybe it can open up a whole new realm of opportunities for you.

For every book there's a buyer and that will certain prove true for this one. Kim Perell provides a wealth of insights and counsel for those who are reluctant to take a "big leap." Most people find themselves in a situation when they must make a major change in their life. Perell focuses on three reasons: SURVIVAL, BETTER OPPORTUNITY, or REGENERATION. "Here's a little secret: you reason for jumping doesn't matter; the only thing that matters is is that you have the courage to take the leap." Perell offers another: "If you've got to jump, rock bottom is a great place to start. After all, there's nowhere to go but up." The Steven Wright's observation correctly suggests premeditation before making a leap that involves significant risk. Perell: "Here are a few questions I ask myself before jumping: 1. What's the worst that could happen? 2. Who else will my actions affect? 3. Who has done this before? 4. Can I see my first three steps onto this path? 5. What are my strengths and superpowers? 6. Am I prepared to navigate unpredictability?" These are eminently sensible, albeit general questions. My own preference is to ask questions directly relevant by the given situation. For example, SURVIVAL: Who would be most helpful in terms of advice now and then the support I will need? If a BETTER OPPORTUNITY: How can I verify that it is what seems to be? Timing of jump? And if REGENERATION: What are the [begin italics] root causes [end italics] of my stagnation as opposed to its symptoms? One of Kim Perell's greatest strengths as a source of advice is that she is a diehard pragmatist, obsessed with understanding what works, what doesn't, and why...and then share what she has learned with as many others as possible. She is determined to help them [begin italics] help themselves [end italics]. She sees her function as that of both a window and a mirror, as both an anchor and a sail, NOT as a crutch. Most family members and friends tell us what we want to hear, not what we need to know.  Perell makes highly effective use of candor. Check out the direct address in the subtitle: Dare to Do What Scares You in Business and Life. And then in the first three chapters, note the frequent use of direct address in the respective  themes/challenges/admonitions: Look Before You Leap (Chapter 1); Master Your Mindset, Delete Your Excuses, Visualize Your Success, and You Will Never Be Ready (Chapter 2); and Turn Your Fears into Fuel, Immerse Yourself in Discomfort, and Love It More than You Fear it (Chapter 3). This approach enables Perell to establish and then sustain a close rapport with her reader. With all due respect to the inherent value of the information, insights, and counsel that Kim Perell provides in this book, only you will or will not make any specific  leap. You must do everyth...
Great book for anyone wanting to make a big life change, start a business, change careers, get a new job or even lose weight.

Really enjoyed this book! I was considering a new job and found this book thoughtful and insightful. The authors story was inspiring and helped me make my decision to “Jump”. Highly recommend this book!!
Kim’s story and tips are super inspiring, honest and authentic. She shares her entrepreneurial lessons and tactics for facing fears and making real progress personally and professionally. So much of what holds us back is ourselves. A great read for anyone feeling lost, stuck, scared, or that knowing that you are just capable of so much more but maybe unsure where or how to start. As the quote goes, but what if I fall? But what if I FLY! Make the JUMP!!
