Punch Doubt in the Face by Nicolle Merril

How to Upskill, Change Careers, and Beat the Robots.

The days of sticking with a single career path until our golden years of retirement are gone. In the last ten years, the world of work has changed significantly. But the career advice you’ve been given since you were a kid hasn’t.

Enter Nicolle Merrill, four-time (and counting) career-changer, professional reinventor, and author. In Punch Doubt in the Face: How to upskill, change careers, and beat the robots, Nicolle translates the future of work into a roadmap to a better career and professional empowerment.

Grounded in her belief that our careers are like a Choose Your Own Adventure book—full of possibilities, new paths, and the occasional surprise—Nicolle helps readers evaluate their careers like mini-futurists.

You’ll discover a new career that fits your lifestyle, learn how to attain the skills needed to thrive in the workplace of the future, and go on a professional adventure or two—regardless of your age or your industry.

Read this book. Your future self will thank you.
