Description
"Can you work for a better world without taking a vow of poverty? The authors' answer is a resounding, "yes!" This book draws on interviews with over forty practical idealists, whose stories will inspire the reader and provide tools for making the choices necessary to succeed as a practical idealist. The practical idealists in this book are lawyers, business people, artists, social workers, computer techs, international development workers, union researchers, activists, stay-at-home parents, health outreach workers, and city managers, just to name a few.
Description
Through examples and exercises, Practical Idealists: Changing the World and Getting Paid explores how to clarify your values and passions, gain relevant skills, find work, use college and graduate school effectively, manage finances, and build a community of support. Practical idealists understand that personal change and social change are connected. They know that choices matter. This book will help you make the choices that matter and live your life as a practical idealist."--BOOK JACKET.
