He had eight jobs in eight years, constantly hoping the next one would be different.
From writing advertising for The Home Depot to branding for companies like Bose and Staples, he’s no stranger to the cubicle. In 2010, Jon closed the gap between his day job and his dream job when he joined the Dave Ramsey team to become a full-time author. He has contributed to CNN.com, speaks nationally on a variety of subjects, and is the author of three books: Quitter; Gazelles, Baby Steps And 37 Other Things Dave Ramsey Taught Me About Debt; and Stuff Christians Like. He lives in Nashville, TN, with his wife and two daughters.
In Start, the latest book from Wall Street Journal best-selling author Jon Acuff, he explores the five stages every life goes through on the path to awesome, and looks at what it takes to punch fear in the face, escape average, and do work that matters.
God is the ultimate matchmaker! His expertise is grossly under acknowledged today, but is clearly seen throughout Scripture. Those who allow God to divinely orchestrate their love story never regret it. In this book, Joel and Casey not only share practical relationship principles from the Bible, but also share their intimate experience working alongside the Divine Matchmaker.
There are friends (I might be one of them) who will tell you, “Quit your job and follow your dream.” But Jon Acuff is smarter than that. Quitter is about going from cubicle-bound to Outward Bound without committing financial and marital hara-kiri along the way-and actually succeeding in the end.
