Jon Acuff, NYT Bestselling Author

Today’s guest is Jon Acuff, the New York Times Bestselling author of five books including his most recent, Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work and Never Get Stuck. He’s a well-known public speaker, social media expert and amazing writer whose blogs have been read by millions of fans. For years Jon worked as a staff writer for well-known companies like Home Depot, Bose, Staples, and AutoTrader.com and helped tell their stories. Then he landed his dream job on the Dave Ramsey team as a full-time speaker and author and had “the three greatest years” of his professional life! What made him walk away from that job? We’re going to find out…

Also from our interview:

— The two greatest lessons for anyone who’s trying to make the most of their career.

— How he landed the opportunity to work alongside Dave Ramsey. He said that relationship literally fast forwarded his career by 10 years.

— The surprising life story that Jon and I have in common…This really put a smile on my face.
