Acuff finds it amazing that people spend more than eighteen years studying and preparing for college, but little or no time honing their careers between graduation and retirement. He offers an empowering tool he calls the Career Savings Account, which will change the way readers think about their skills, relationships, character, and work ethic. He also shows that if you’re on the wrong track, you already have what you need to change it—even if your family and mortgage mean you can’t simply pick up and move for a new opportunity.
Throughout the book, Acuff features inspiring and funny true stories—not merely his own, but those of friends who restarted their careers after a layoff, an extended maternity leave, or simply the realization that they were suffering fifty weeks a year just to pay the bills and enjoy two weeks of vacation. Everyone can benefit from Do Over, from new graduates to fifty-somethings and beyond.

SOPHIA AMORUSO, author of #GIRLBOSS
"As Abraham Lincoln once said, being forced into work you dont love is like paying to upgrade your cell phone to the latest model: no one should have to do that! Fortunately, you dont need to do at least one of these things anymore. Take it from me and from Honest Abe: Jons book can get you unstuck."
CHRIS GUILLEBEAU, author of The Happiness of Pursuit and The $100 Startup
