The Art of Being a PITA by Shanah Bell is a business book that starts with a disturbing truth, one that many young and older people still believe: "When I was younger, the message I was given was the same as everyone else from my generation. Success meant that you got a good, stable job, with a large company, had vacation days and benefits." But as the author navigated through life and did a variety of jobs, she came to the conclusion that she could be successful on her own terms and live life the way she wanted. In this book, she shares wisdom garnered over the years and offers powerful insights to readers, showing them how they can develop their creativity, hone skills, and break from the typical career paradigm that has been served them.
The author tells readers that they have the potential to break the vicious cycle of a nine-to-five workday, do the work they love the most, and have a lot of fun and flexibility managing their time while earning more. In this book, readers will find everything they need to do non-conventional jobs, experience financial freedom, and secure their future. The author weaves personal experiences into the writing and I particularly loved how she allows these experiences to instruct her writing.
The Art of Being a PITA by Shanah Bell is written in a simple, conversational style of writing that engages readers in a dialogue with themselves, and illuminates their choices when it comes to choosing a career path and the things they can do differently. Shanah Bell’s voice is compelling and she shares invaluable insights and wisdom to help anyone work on their terms and build their financial freedom without the uncertainty and the constraints of a corporate lifestyle.
