Reviews

"In their book Build Your Dreams, recent grad team Irvin and Hiden have provided a useful action plan for finding meaningful work. I loved all of the exercises designed to put structure around abstract concepts. I know my work - and my life - will be vastly improved by implementing some of these practical suggestions!" --Alexandra Levit, author of New Job, New You: A Guide to Reinventing Yourself in a Bright New Career. "Build Your Dreams is the essential guide to help you identify your passions and turn your dreams into a reality. This book is packed with practical techniques, engaging exercises and inspiring stories to help you overcome the mental, emotional, and financial roadblocks that stand in the way of your dreams. Alexis and Chip's book is a must for anyone who wants to turn their passion into their profession. --Christine Hassler, Author of 20 Something, 20 Everything and The 20 Something Manifesto, Life Coach, Speaker "The book's unflinching practicality is a rarity in the genre: the duo readily and duly acknowledges the necessity of powering through the less-exciting, early stages of achieving one's goals, and they provide quite a bit of advice on how to deal with poor employment prospects, seemingly endless internships, and repeat rejection. The book is decidedly millennial in its outlook on the working world--every moment of giddy optimism is matched by a reminder of the inevitability of stumbling blocks and failure. But for dreamers hoping to keep their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground, this is a great starting point." --Publishers Weekly "If the pursuit of dreams interests your graduate, then mark your calendar and buy this book. It's an enlightening combination of encouragement and practical advice, with chapters on discovering dreams, setting goals, building budgets and handling failure. Not a bad selection for someone just setting out these days." --St. Paul Pioneer Press
