The book for anyone fundamentally incompatible with the 9-to-5.
“Heather’s book is a lighthouse for anyone who is done living on others’ terms and ready to actually work towards getting what they truly want.”
– Paul Jarvis ~ Author, Company of One :: Canada
This book is for you if…
You’re not just bored, or annoyed, or sick of the 9-to-5. You’re fundamentally incompatible with it.
You’re ferociously independent, and relentlessly require autonomy and freedom in your life. Subsuming yourself to people’s agendas doesn’t work for you.
You’re ambitious, organized, visionary, and ready to take all the tools available to make work that matters. You know that the only person who can create a big enough sandbox for you to play in is you.
You love to work, get antsy when you’re idle, and want to have a bunch of things on the go at once. You have a tendency to take on all the things, because you often can do them — but you need to learn how to best direct your energy.
You want to be judged by the quality of your work, not your ability to play corporate politics, and you want to be valued for your brain, not your output.
You’re absolutely on fire to bring your greatest work to the world, and just want to know the very best way to deliver that work. You know there’s No Plan B.
“If you know you want to go for something bigger, but you also don’t feel like you’re “cut out” for the life of an entrepreneur, Heather Thorkelson is your new salty best friend. She’ll give you the straight dope about how you become the kind of person who calls their own shots and does something epic in this world. Less “self-help” and more “real talk from a friend,” this is the book you need if you’re serious about levelling up.”

In No Plan B, I walk you through all of the fundamentals that other business books skip over. I’m not here to teach you how to get 1000 new subscribers by Friday, or how to jam “prospects” into your sales funnel. I’m here to help you unindoctrinate yourself from status quo thinking and build the foundations for doing fucking great work.
About the author
“We don’t need more burned out workers, we need more inspired, creative changemakers. My book walks people through the ways they need to personally develop to make their biggest business dreams a reality.”
…this is SUCH an important antidote to all the get-rich-quick-if-you-follow-my-recipe books out there.
I want the first chapter in my hot little hands
Get a first peek at what at least one person has called, “…a life-changer for quite a few entrepreneurs or people who want to get out of the 9-to-5.”
I wanted to say how much I really love your book. I’ve really been INSIDE the text, and I just love your voice and the examples you share — from both your life and other businesses.
I tend not to think of myself as an entrepreneur (which might be a semantic argument I have with myself because I’ve worked for myself for 20+ years lol), but the parts about really figuring out who you are, what you have to offer, etc are hugely resonant with stages of growth I’ve gone through — and that’s been personal growth that’s impacted my work in a big way.
You really lay out what I’ve discovered — that the more I am true to myself, the better my work and work relationships go. So opposite of what I believed/how I acted when I was younger!
