More Reviews of ‘From Drift to SHIFT’

“As a qualified life coach and a career consultant, Jody Miller has used experiences to infuse the book with many helpful ideas to find true purpose in your personal and professional life.” – K.Chun


“The more I read, the more I fall into the book. It’s not only a self-help book but a friend, who tells us a lot of personal stories, keeps encouraging and inspiring us on our path to achieve any goals in our life. It’s actually open and direct to my heart. “Everyone has a story to tell.” Jody said in the very first lines, and so, she brings us eight stories from eight incredible people who have overcome struggles and obstacles, and lived their own happy and meaningful lives from day-to-day.” – Cam 


“I found myself immersed in reading about all those life-changing experiences of people from all walks of life, finding out that each provided the reader with a whole variety of different lessons. The author’s transitions from narrating to addressing questions and her thoughts directly to the reader prompted me to look deeper in myself and gain a higher level of self-understanding.

Also, loved the extra content at the book’s final pages, an additional dose of supportive and helpful content!” – Umbra


“It was to my pleasant surprise that this was such a quick and interesting read, sprinkled with outside references to back up Miller’s point in a way that is both academic and refreshing.

It cannot be undersold that From Drift to Shift is engaging in a way that won’t feel like homework.” – Thanon


“This book, in my opinion, will hit home with the millions of people who are enduring 9-5 jobs that they actually don’t like or are stuck in relationships with people they don’t love. A shift in the right direction can enable us to have it all!” – Edwin


“The author does an excellent job of showing how all are equal. It does not matter if you come from a prominent family or are born into difficult circumstances. The book also talks about how it does not matter how you came to your circumstances or created them. “Sometimes we regret what we do to survive, and sometimes we have to do what we do to survive.” The author’s advice in the first section is “recognizing how to make a shift and then figuring out how we do it, that makes or breaks us.” – TK



Lacking Confidence? This Free Course Will Help You!

The Confidence Course

Life is so much different when you feel confident.
When you are confident, you don’t hesitate to make decisions.
You don’t go back and forth on your word, exhaust yourself with the pros and cons. Instead, you show up, speak up, and stand up.
If this seems like a distant dream, you’re not alone. I remember when I didn’t have confidence.
I moved to NYC at 23 years old with $500 in my pocket and a beaten up car. I had no job. There was a huge snowstorm going on and I didn’t have a winter coat or boots. I slept on the couch of a childhood friend. I was pretty much at bottom. But something in me – a deep down resilience, made me trudge through the snow, day after day, interview after interview. I waited by the landline each afternoon to see if I’d get a call back (no cellphones then) and I lived on tuna fish and crackers (my money was dwindling fast – and so was the free couch invite).
I had a lot of free time between snowstorms and interviews, so I started to go for jogs in Central Park. I jogged every day right after interviews and before expected callbacks (snow or no snow). I lost 10 pounds. I felt better about myself. I accepted my situation as just one more step along my path and told myself that I would look back on this time with pride. I got confident. The rest is history.
I got into television, investment banking, strategic consulting and executive management strategy. I became the work happiness expert and I wrote books and articles (still do). I help thousands of people find meaning in their work and lives and I help many companies create engaging cultures where employees want to work. I am on TV, radio and podcasts regularly. I love my life.
And you can too!
There are so many people out there with the strength and heart to change the world … but they’re hiding out and playing small because they lack confidence.
That’s why I was so grateful when my friend Caroline Garnet McGraw invited me to be a part of a new video interview series about this topic.

It’s called The Confidence Course: How to Defeat Self-Doubt, Trade Perfectionism for Possibility, and Live Your Dreams.

Santa Barbara/Montecito Mudslides Update – This is Where I live

First the Thomas Fires, then the mudslides.

While I am safe, as I live midway up the hill in Santa Barbara, I am a short distance from Montecito and the mudslides.

I have friends who lost family and friends.

I will be attending the vigil this evening at 5pm at the Santa Barbara Courthouse.

Yesterday i sort of bent the law by riding my fat tire bike on the beach and past the non enter zones. I did not disrupt any ongoing efforts, yet as I shifted over from the beach ot the railroad tracks, I saw a large crane digging out mud (at least 4 feet deep) that had trapped a van which had landed next to the train tracks.

The van must have been carried by the mudslide, over the freeway and down along the side of the tracks.

Whomever had been in the van must have exited when it happened.

I grieve for all the victims and their families, yet I celebrate the heroic efforts of the first responders, firefighters, police, CalTrans, Santa Barbara and Montecito officals, all the volunteers, the dogs who find people and help save them.

I am sad and still in a state of shock.

Please hold those you love close. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger and give back to your communities however and whenever you can.

Bless us one and all.
