According to author and career coach Gugu Khazi, to find a job that you like and consistently build a successful career is not difficult. In her book Passion to Careers: Nine Steps to Building a Successful Career From Your Passion, Gugu outlines nine critical steps to follow in order to find yourself a job you love and continuously build a successful career.

In the book, Gugu shares coaching stories from her experience gained during her career as an HR leader, and tells how others have built career success.

According to Gugu’s nine-step model, throughout your career-journey you should be deliberate about the legacy you are creating, because if you succeed in creating a positive legacy, you can monetise your career by selling your expertise to others later on.

The book ends with chapters addressing common pitfalls that we all experience in our careers and how to avoid them, as well as future work trends bound to affect everyone’s careers and how each person can future-proof themselves from this disruption.

Blending elements of storytelling and self-development, this book is an essential read for anyone looking to make a positive change in their career.
