When was the last time you stopped and asked, “Am I even on the right bus?”

Every morning, you wake up, get ready for work, hop on the bus, and sit in your regular window seat, third row from the front. Life has become so repetitive that you are now on autopilot, unaware that deep down you feel defeated and lost.

About the Book

If it feels like something is missing in your life, finding the confidence to make big changes can be scary. Angela Burgess’s motivational autobiography will revolutionize the way you approach your career and life, and help unlock your true potential.

Within this book's pages, Angela shares ups and downs in her career, taking you on a captivating journey that led her to where she is today. Despite hills and valleys along the way, Angela emerged as a leader early on in her career in the wealth management industry. By age 28, she secured a leadership position within Smith Barney, a position that usually takes employees two decades to reach. Everything seemed to finally align after years of hard work. But despite her success and financial stability, she felt like something was missing. This left her feeling lost, overwhelmed, and defeated. The feeling of being lost persisted, and she did not know what to do. Angela’s book explores how she finally found inner peace, fulfillment, and courage to make healthy changes in her life. By changing buses, switching seats, meeting new people, and taking completely new routes, Angela unlocked her potential, and so can you.
