Fire Your Boss: A Manifesto to Rethink How You Think About Work Episode #44

Aaron McHugh


My first book is now available on Amazon. After twenty years of going to work everyday, I have discovered a set of deep convictions that have revolutionized the way I experience work everyday. I believe that you and I both want to enjoy going to work everyday. I believe that we deserve to be recognized for the great work that you do. I believe that “Good Enough” isn’t an acceptable way to invest our career. This book is my disruptive alternative for a better way to work.

It’s time to make a ruckus. It’s time to give your boss the boot.
