PRLog - Dec. 14, 2012 - CINCINNATI -- Next time you go to work, imagine a life where every day felt like Saturday; where you were disappointed to look up at the clock and find it the end of the day because you just wanted to keep on doing what you were doing.

That’s what globally renowned motivational speaker, Sam Crowley, wants you to achieve after reading his newly released book, No More Workdays: the Journey to Making Every Day a Saturday.
According to Sam, “The book needed to be written to give a real-life, first-person account of the entrepreneurial journey. Look at it as the ‘anti-Secret’ (the book and movie that caught fire many years ago). Oprah, Ellen, Larry King and other media people hyped The Secret as if all you had to was sit in the middle of a pasture and wish for a better future and watch the universe deliver it to you. I'm here to report that there is no secret to making every day Saturday.
“Secondly, I wrote the book because I wanted to challenge people to play big in life. Stop hanging around people who moan, complain and ultimately settle for an average life. There's never been a better time to be an entrepreneur but you would never know it if all you did was watch the news and hang out by the water cooler. People need a kick in the ass, as well as encouragement to go for it. This book provides a balance of both.”
If Sam can quit the corporate grind and do what he loves for a living, so can you. Although the book is more autobiographical than self-help, it helps readers understand that if someone as average as Sam can achieve huge success and everyday joy, so can they. It's a real story about a real guy who took a real shot and went for his dream.
No More Workdays: the Journey to Making Every Day a Saturday is Sam’s story about growing up as the eighth child of a single mom in a small town in Pennsylvania. With his trademark droll sense of humor, he relates how his life was just going through the motions, until the day his daughter asked him, “Daddy, is tomorrow Saturday?”
Sam shares, “I'm nothing special. I'm not Superman. I was just angry that I would miss seeing my kids grow up because society told me I had to have a job, work 40 years and retire with my 401(K) and a gold watch.” That was the impetus for changing everything to make more time for his family and less time for corporate politics.
But it wouldn’t be easy. Sam quit his job, went through a painful bankruptcy and got rehired at the big telecommunications company he’d previously left, then finally exited the corporate world for good as he endeavored to make every day a Saturday through podcasting, blogging and motivational speaking. Walk with Sam as he endures monumental failures, followed by incredible successes. “The success stories would never had happened, had I not had the experiences of trying and failing. I was mocked (for stuttering), ridiculed (for quitting my six-figure job) and ultimately humiliated (bankruptcy)
No More Workdays: the Journey to Making Every Day a Saturday is already receiving rave reviews. Here’s what one reader shared, “After reading this book it's obvious Sam is the corporate version of Indiana Jones. This guy is not afraid of failure and is extremely transparent about his life and business. I laughed. I cried. Most of all, I felt like I could do achieve anything. After reading this book, you will no doubt feel like I did: Wanting to go for your dream right now and make every day Saturday!”
Sam firmly believes that “Success without fulfillment is failure.” Saturday is a mindset, not a circumstance. You can have a net worth of $5B and be miserable. We all have a passion and a purpose in life, yet very few of us take the chance to play big. We settle for a life of mediocrity because we're afraid of being judged, losing money or a host of other self-sabotaging beliefs.
“I'm here to report back to the dreamers that everything will be just fine if you have the guts to stay in the game. You're going to fail, period. Accept it, learn from it and move on. Life is a real game played by real people. Sitting around and wishing for a better life will guarantee you die filled with regret.”
It is extremely rare to find a first-time author who can so deftly write about pain and joy, misfortune and good luck, that it puts the reader on an emotional roller coaster but Sam does it, and does it well. Come along with Sam and find how his story relates to moments in your own life – then become the Champion who is just waiting to get out and make every day a Saturday!
