I have been following Elliott Hulse for almost three years now. He has easily become a mentor of mine simply via his YouTube videos. I actually have a notebook filled with notes I’ve taken from those videos. The first book I read from Elliott was King, which preceded NONJOBS RevolutionKing blew me away. It was slammed with valuable information on how to be a better man in every aspect of the word. I initially reached out to Elliott’s wife, Colleen (who is also his Business Manager,) earlier this year and asked to interview him about King. Colleen told me that Elliott would prefer that we wait until his new book, NONJOBS Revolution, was released so that the interview could be about it instead of King. I was happy to accept that answer. There was obviously a lot of value in NONJOBS Revolution, but I’ll just cover a couple of what I saw as key points.

Culture of Consumerism

Elliott opens the book by explaining how our economy has shifted over the years. He talks about how the current education system was designed by industrial giants to produce “well-conditioned” workers to, therefore, create the culture of consumerism. Elliott defines consumerism as a social and economic order and ideology that encourages the acquisition of goods and services in ever-increasing amounts. So, basically, it’s the idea that we are being persuaded to give all of our money to people who don’t really need it in order to attain things we don’t really need (or even want.) Elliott then goes into talking about how the internet has and will continue to liberate people from this culture.

What is a NonJob?

Elliott defines a NonJob as “any time you are doing work that you love, serving others, and earning a fair return on your value.” He also makes it a point to mention that your NonJob is not so much about what you’ve done as much as it’s about who you are.  There are three key requirements to have on your “NonJob Resume” and those requirements are:

  1. You are deeply in love with some subject, skill, art, trade, or vocation.
  2. You share your love.
  3. Learn how to receive love.

You can read the book to learn more about the depth of each requirement.

Final Thoughts

So, if you couldn’t already tell, I’m a huge fan of Elliott Hulse and his work. I read this book in less than 24 hours. Elliott also talks about how to build a team within your NonJob, three rituals everyone should be doing each day, the different kinds of people you meet in your life, and so much more. I think anybody who considers themselves an entrepreneur (or even thinks they might be entrepreneurial) needs to add this to their reading list. It’s such an eye-opening book in terms of why building a business of your own (NonJob) is so important in modern times.

  1. This is such an interesting concept. I really like the term, “NONJOB”. I think that it is important that we all do more of what we love.

    1. I like the term too. I think this term comes in the true-blooded artists, poets, etc. who are happily creating to express themselves. I would like to read the whole book.

  2. i LOVE that you got to interview the author! I love books made to change your life! Thanks for the info!

  3. This is great book review! I love the Nonjob and that you should be doing what you love and enjoy people around you and not your day is already chosen for you. I’m very interested to read book from Elliott Hulse. Great share!

  4. I was wondering what a Non Job was! Now that I know, I can say my part-time job is a non job. It’s a fun hobby for me but makes me money on the side. I love it! Elliott’s book sounds unique and informative! Great review!

  5. Some interesting points! I feel like it would be a bit dark for my tastes lately. There’s enough to be stressed out about every day with just the news to hold me over. But I definitely agree about the issues with education, and it won’t be getting better any time soon, I don’t think.

  6. First time I ever heard the term NonJob and I totally love it! Consumerism is a big problem in today’s economy, people spend too much money on things they don’t need. I love the idea of having a NonJob resume with those things that we are passionate about it. Sounds like a great read.

  7. I agree with what he said about the school model. Time is changing though! Everyone’s to get into doing their “nonjobs”. You only live once, right?

  8. Makes sense that doing something that you love doesn’t seem like work, hence the NonJob. I love the idea of cultivating a culture of support around that!

  9. excellent book review. I couldn’t agree more with the definition of Nonjob and feel empowered to say that I am serving the world today actively pursuing my nonjob!
