Beyond 8 to 5 will remain the best book I ever read in my life besides the Bible. When I purchased my copy I was not only curious to get the full story on the unfortunate experience of the writer who is a great and eloquent narrator, but I was also at a point where I needed to be in self employment as I was very demotivated in employment. I was really looking forward to great ideas. I really enjoyed reading chapter One and looked forward to chapter Two. Little did I know that this chapter would transform my life in a minute. Page 1-3 addressed identification and utilization of our God given gifts and talents as well as passions. I must say this stirred me to action as far as my music ministry is concerned. This awakened my dream of recording music, something I had tried and abandoned for a number of years. As I pondered on this rebuke/challenge I resolved to end employment and get into business coupled with music ministry so that I could give all my undivided time and attention. I immediately enrolled for vocal lessons and soon after started recording. I now have Five singles complete with videos on YouTube https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCOIMphgWK4MclWfgA3tlg6g and 3 audios that I am looking forward to shoot to have a complete album of 8 tracks. I also started my dream business 'Serene Fun Zone' which is also doing well. The most important thing is the fulfillment I have knowing that I am living my purpose of serving God through music ministry. Being self employment also accords me the opportunity to spend more time with my family. I recommend this book to anyone who is feeling stuck in their life which my very demanding and unfulfilling job had denied me for long.
Good work Daisy. Your book tells a genuine ,real story. Keep it up. I hope it reaches a large audience!

I read it towards the end of last year it changed my life, and I have done more during this pandemic than anyothe time in life.
I first met beyond 8 to 5 on a colleague's car dashboard. I actually picked it because I needed something to keep my mind busy. After reading my perception in life has never been the same again. I am pursuing my career yes but I now know the value of stretching myself beyond my work hours to be able to make a good investment my generation
