I know you already don’t believe me.


You could hardly read the entire title before you rolled your eyes and said yeah right.

What if it were possible?  Yes, to actually fire your boss.

Coming Soon-January 2013

I’ve been toiling over this storyline for many years myself

And I believe I’ve found a crack in the foundation that exposed a weakness in the system.

My creative team and I are applying the final polish coat, but I want to squeak out a little teaser.

This eBook is for you if you want to learn:

  • You want to know how to enjoy going to work each day.
  • You feel confident that your career is too important to approach it with apathy.
  • You want to gain greater influence at work.
  • You’re ready to explore new alternatives for finding recognition for your contribution.

A couple of experts

Before you push the eject button, think of the hassle of brushing up your resume, looking for a new job, going through the interviews, evaluating benefits packages, and comparing compensation.

Let’s face it: The biggest gain in changing jobs is that you will restart the clock on a new set of challenges, a new pairing of relationships, and a new boss.

  • What if I told you that this is not the answer that you are really searching for?
  • What if the solution is that you actually need to fire your boss instead?

The unwritten contract

Most people sign an unwritten contract every day. They trade a paycheck for predictability.

Here is the trade most people make: Boss, you give me a predictable every-two-week paycheck, health insurance, projects to work on, lunch breaks, and a Christmas party, and I’ll give you my will, my dignity, my freedom of choice, my security, my sleep, and my future plans for my life.

I am looking forward to sharing the rest with you next month.

Any reactions would be helpful to hear.


*Disclaimer-This is not a pitch for buying my (whatever) for three easy payments of $19.95.  

Plain and simply a helpful guide for everyman.

      but you have a board right?

    I love that quote “Most people sign an unwritten contract every day. They trade a paycheck for predictability.” That is so incredibly true and is probably one of the main reason miserable people stay in miserable jobs, failing to reach their potential.

    But over time people come to believe they need the company giving them a check more than the company needs them, so fear creeps in as well. Much better to make yourself indispensable. Realize your value and put it to maximum use.

      Jason-Thanks for your comment. I love receiving a paycheck and I learned a few years ago that I was subtly yielding some part of me for safety and security. Of course right? The bad part was what I was willing to put up with-miserable people in miserable jobs as you say.
      Thanks for the encouragement and I’ll look forward to sending the eBook your way next month when it ships.

      Jason-It looks like I never replied to your comment. Wanted to say thanks. Appreciate you weighing in on the discussion and I agree with your assessment “over time people believe they need the company”. Everyone needs income but the company needs the employee as much as they need the paycheck.

    Can’t wait for you to ship this! I refer to this as my my “collective overlord,” all the people I imagine having expectations of me; it’s so easy to run my day by an imaginary (or real) audience.

      Aaron you’ll for sure get an advanced copy. the imaginary overlords…..I might have to use that.

        Alright! And feel free to use the term :)

  • Ed Collupy

    Aaron – sounds interesting and wonder how it will fit with my own story. Happy to share with you sometime.

    • http://Aaronmchugh.com/ Aaron McHugh

      Ed-I’d love to hear your story. I’ve wrestled with this writing for a while. Maybe your story may help me? Happy New Year.

      Ed-final version of this project was sent to the designer this week. I’ll make sure you get a copy as soon as its done.
