We are multifaceted, ever-evolving human beings, and to find work that will fulfill us, we must first understand our deepest aspirations and their inherent adaptive nature.

At some point in our lives, all of us come to ask ourselves some deep questions, such as: What is Reality? Does God exist? What is the meaning of Life? Why do people watch Reality TV?

With the release of her book ‘Passion Pays: How to make a living from your passions… and change the world too’, humanitarian, jobs and career coach, Genevieve de Lacaze, poses another important question:

What is work really about?

This is currently a burning question as job losses, redundancies and job insecurities now force us to look under the surface. People are looking in the mirror and asking themselves: 'What am I doing with my life?', wondering why their hard work doesn't pay off or contemplating a job or career change. “There is a strong need to rethink the financial crisis, which is in fact existential.” says Genevieve. “The first thing to understand,” she continues, “is that careers are overrated. We are multifaceted, ever-evolving human beings, and to find fulfilling work, we must first understand our deepest aspirations and their inherent adaptive nature.” This is why ‘Understanding your passions fundamentally’ is the first of the four stages that Genevieve, aka GenieCoach, illustrates on the ‘Passion Pays journey’ of the reader.

“Genevieve’s enthusiasm for her subject shows in her writing. The book inspires and encourages creative thought. It is ideal reading for everyone but especially people who are either at the start of their careers or people who are going through a career or life change.” –Sidra Shaukat, freelance writer and blogger.

When it comes to jobs and careers, we dream not only of making money but also of being happy. Passion Pays helps achieving both. Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with real-life exemplars stories, Passion Pays will permanently change how you see the world of work - and how you see yourself in it. With inspiration from 30 ordinary men and women featured in the book, readers will be able to approach any job or career change with serenity and anticipation, rather than anger and regret. In Passion Pays, Job Search takes a whole new meaning, whether looking for part-time jobs, jobs online, working from home or starting a business. This type of empowerment is crucially missing from the career advice in schools, universities or job centers.
