I just read a little preview of an upcoming book titled “THE OUTSOURCED SELF: Intimate Life in Market Times” which chronicles how everything that was once part of private life—love, friendship, child rearing—is being transformed into packaged expertise to be sold back to overworked Americans. Whether it’s your trainer at
the gym or the sleep consultant that gets your baby through the night, there is no corner of personal life without experts. The book covers a lot of what Kelleher International has known for 26 years – your apprehension or embarrassment to engage an expert in some aspect of your personal life is just another block you’re putting up in front of yourself. You’ll spend three hours with the golf pro on a Saturday but balk at spending three with the “love pro”.
Today’s the day to match up your list of experts with your real personal priorities.
