Many of us live in a prison of our own making. We spend our lives dreading Mondays, looking forward to paychecks, and working longer hours, only to shoulder even more responsibility.

It’s a never-ending chase, but life doesn’t have to be that way. It’s time to stop going through the motions and start living. It’s time to build a business that offers you freedom.

After interviewing more than 150 entrepreneurs, Doug Foley realized they all had one thing in common—and it wasn’t a fancy job title, car, or house. Instead of building their lives around their businesses, they built their businesses around the lives they wanted to live.

He wrote Breakout Blueprint to help others follow their lead. Using the four pillars of every successful business—passion, expertise, need, and value—Doug explains how anyone can break free from the typical 9-to-5 and create a deeply fulfilling career on their own terms.

If the 14 analysts polled by CNN Money are even close to being on point, Blueprint Medicines (NASDAQ:BPMC) is a bargain. Shares of the Boston-area biotech trade at just over $74, a few dollars below the targeted low price and a long way off from even the median forecast of $100. So it is no surprise that the stock is rated a buy.

The company’s shares popped a bit in mid-July when the 12-year-old company struck an agreement with Roche (RHHBY) that will infuse it with $775 million.

If financial capital were more evenly distributed and Black Americans enjoyed the same business ownership and success rates as their white
