More and more professionals these days are changing not only jobs but entire careers. That said, going from a pharmaceutical sales professional to a professor of and author on creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship is a big and difficult leap. That's precisely the career change that David Burkus successfully made. Burkus teaches at Oral Roberts University and is the author of 'The Myths of Creativity: The Truth About How Innovative Companies and People Generate Great Ideas.' His work and personal story showcase the many artificial barriers that exist and obstruct us from developing the careers and businesses that we want for ourselves. In our chat, Burkus gets very personal and transparent about how he's overcome those struggles on his way to a blossoming author career with a highly anticipated second book already in the works. After the show, find us on Twitter @WinningEdits or #authormba with your questions and comments. Enjoy!
