author Tommy signing copies of his Bus Tales bookBus Tales Book: shows how getting happier in your job is simpler than you think

According to a recent Gallup poll – 70% of people hate their jobs. As a city bus driver for over 21 years I saw it daily: people looking tired and disengaged as they got onto my bus on their way to and from work every day. Seeing this sparked in me a desire to make a difference.

And that’s when I realized that being a bus driver put me in a unique position where I was able to reach out to over 150,000 people per year! Wow! I truly could “change the world”, or at least the part of the world I was in – one busload at a time.

For over 10 years, I used simple, and sometimes innovative, ways of engaging with my riders. It changed my life and the lives of many of my riders. At the very least, it put a smile on many faces every day.

My book Bus Tales: How to Change the World from 9 to 5 is different from so many books about working life. It is aimed at everyone! Whether you own a company or are the most menial of workers, you have a choice. This little book is full of humorous stories from my job as well as tips and tools I acquired as I turned my “working Joe” job into one that gave me joy, fun interaction and most importantly: purpose.

With 24 five star reviews I am blown away by the impact our little book is having as it ripples the concept of the Art of Acknowledgement out into the world. I trust it inspires you to go out and make a positive impact in your part of the world…because it all makes a difference!
