"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
-Steve Jobs, Stanford University's
2005 Commencement Address

Book CoverLife in the World of YOMO: Start the Adventure to Your Perfect Calling, by Dr. Melissa Luke, is a must-have manual for anyone about to enter into a job hunt, and especially for those dissatisfied with their career.

While most career-advice books tell you how to do your job or how to interview differently, Life in the World of YOMO tells a story. Readers learn by hearing personal anecdotes about impossible obstacles, heartbreaking failures, pleasant surprises and remarkable achievements. Dr. Luke's revolutionary new concept, YOMO, an avatar based character, is a visual manifestation of everything you want to be in your personal and professional life that will guide changes in your brain to help you achieve your dreams.

"No fear or resumes are allowed inside a YOMO," says Dr. Luke. "A YOMO has nothing to lose. It can't feel rejected or embarrassed if something goes wrong. It's a safe place to visualize and then make a change."

Dr. Luke, a published author, a professional speaker and a career performance expert, explains that she's not brilliant, but she makes smart decisions—there is a difference. She helps readers identify their own personal challenges and asks for their interactive personal participation as they read Life in the World of YOMO. The book provides exercises, worksheets and brain games, outlines the main excuses for staying in an unhappy job-situation and refutes them. It offers unique solutions on how to specialize your personal brand and even provides a 45-day challenge for readers to implement after they finish the book.

Although Life in the World of YOMO was just published, the idea was conceived many years ago after the death of Dr. Luke's college friend. At that time, Dr Luke was inspired at a very young age to quit doing what she didn't love and to only remain in a career that made her happy-because not one of us knows how many days we have left on earth. Unfortunately, Dr. Luke learned very few people understand how to engage in this mindset, so she embarked on a new career to help people learn how to be happy at work.

Dr. Luke has attended multiple universities over the past two decades; to include public, for- profit, and private higher education institutions across the nation in attempts to research how the educational system differs at all levels. In short, she has made attending school a very expensive hobby—yet, she still does not believe in its value.

Life in the World of YOMO's interactive, easy-to-read chapters unveil truths and dispel myths which can help readers identify self-imposed boundaries and realize tangible, measurable, realistic career results and most importantly, happiness. The book also includes the following themes and topics:
• Results of Luke's 1,500-person survey on job satisfaction
• Why job satisfaction is at its lowest in twenty years
• Why 'status' degrees are a waste of time and money
• How to overcome the fear of new experiences
• How students can be successful in their career at school
• That the world of academia is failing to teach at the level corporations need in the 21st century
• The analysis of the 100's of companies Luke has analyzed, which are the most successful and why
• Recommendations for graduating high school and college students
• How companies can teach innovation internally
