F*ck the expectations. You can live a life that is bigger than the little boxes others have tried to put you in.
Are you expected to: marry, buy a home, have kids?
Did your parents lay out a path for you?
Are you beholden to the corporate ladder?
Are you living someone else’s life?
In a world that tells you no, Whatever the Hell You Want is telling you yes. Through personal stories and insights from their international podcast series, The Breakout, Keri Ohlrich, PhD, and Kelly Guenther bring their combined 20+ years of coaching and corporate-change expertise to help you redefine what you want in every part of your life—outside the expectations that have been placed on you by your parents, partners, society, and even yourself. After decades of working with small businesses and Fortune 500 companies like Miller Brewing, RR Donnelley, ManpowerGroup, and Dine Brands, they share the model for real change that has led them to transform their own lives every step of the way.
In Whatever the Hell You Want, Kelly and Keri share the big and little moments in their lives when they defied the status quo—from quitting their corporate jobs to starting their own company to Keri’s Elvis-themed wedding in Vegas to Kelly’s empowered choice of not having children.
We all deserve happiness, security, joy, peace, and authenticity, which can only be achieved when we are living a life we have chosen. This book will teach you how to:
- Identify the little boxes of expectation that have kept you trapped.
- Map out your escape plan for busting out of those boxes.
- Finally live a life of unwavering choice and lasting freedom.
Best friends as well as business partners, Kelly and Keri have infused Whatever the Hell You Want with humor, practical action steps, and the inspiration you need to live the life you want.
