From award-winning strategist and social entrepreneur Charlotte Cramer, The Purpose Myth provides a powerful argument for, and practical steps towards, reclaiming your life’s purpose. This book is for you, if: You feel unfulfilled and stuck at work ✓ You want to learn why purpose is a core human need ✓ You want to ignite your entrepreneurial spirit ✓ You want to make a difference in the world and get unstuck ✓ How have we got here?

Charlotte Cramer shares a proven, step-by-step guide to finding and fulfilling purpose all in a few hours a week, without sacrificing your salary. You will learn: Why work isn’t working ✓ How to find, reclaim, and fulfil your purpose ✓ What is design thinking and social innovation strategy how to use it ✓ What makes a newsworthy Purpose Project ✓ How DIY PR can get you top-tier press and TV news coverage ✓ How to become a side hustle social entrepreneur ✓ How to create a measurable social impact ✓ How to use this to transform your career and life ✓ The advice is based on Cramer’s academic research in neuroscience and co-founding the award-winning Purpose Project, CRACK +CIDER, which has helped over 40,000 people experiencing homelessness; landed her interviews on BBC, ITV, and CBS news; resulted in speaking gigs to audiences of 2,000 people; and earned coverage in The Guardian, SF Chronicle, and Fast Company, among many others.
