Trapped in a job or business that's "just not you"? Always dreaming of your next vacation or living for the weekend? Marianne Cantwell's straight-talking best seller will help you break out of that career cage and be a free range human. It's about much more than just quitting your job and becoming your own boss. It's about life on your terms, working when, where, and how you want - so you don't have to fit yourself into someone else's box to make a great income.

Be a Free Range Human was one of the first and most popular guides to creating a custom career (without an office or a boss). Updated with new advice on how to make free range work for your personality (you don't need to be a constantly-networking extrovert. have an MBA, or get funding), this smart, energizing guide will help you cut through the noise, see your options in a new way, and get the freedom and fulfillment you crave.
