DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
You have a prestigious, lucrative job and an affluent lifestyle. In short: You’ve made it.
Yet you are still dissatisfied.
Many thousands of successful people are deciding that the demands of modern working life do not justify the rewards. They want time to enjoy their families, their relationships and participate in their communities. They want to escape the vicious cycle of overwork created by an increasingly insecure workplace and an ever present fear of redundancy. They want to radically change their lives, find new goals, new values. But how?
Downshifting is the answer.
'Downshifting: The Ultimate Handbook' will tell you everything you need to know about swapping a high pressure lifestyle for a simpler and more rewarding way of life. Drawing on detailed case studies of more than 50 downshifters, Andy Bull explores a range of alternatives to a work-dominated lifestyle and offers a detailed plan of how to make this dream of a balanced life a reality.
'Downshifting: The Ultimate Handbook' offers you practical help through the downshifting process, from the moment you decide to change, through establishing yourself in your new life and the problems you are likely to encounter. Don’t downshift without it.
