Challenge Your Professional Life
A book by MENDO & Rebel
Rebellion in business: a contradictio in terminis?
☛ The coffee table book that provides you with tools to rebel with tact ☚
In Challenge Your Professional Life, Rebel and MENDO explore the concept of professional rebellion. Former and future Rebels deconstruct the concept of the office as a symbol for the conventional, the uninspiring, and the predictable. The office might not seem like the most exciting place to bring about change, but you can trust Rebel to show you why that makes it all the more important.
Reviews: What are people saying about the book?
“Firstly, this book is pleasing to the eye. You can tell a lot of attention was paid to the details, the visuals work together as a whole. Crammed with inspiring anecdotes and interviews, which I personally do not read chronologically, but that works nonetheless. I highly recommend this book to people who want to learn to properly channel their skills or give others the opportunity to do so, as a gift for a special occasion.”
“I recently received this book as a birthday gift and it’s a real page turner. It looks good on my table and it’s appealing both visually and textually, although at times also confusing. I do believe the confusing part is intentional, to keep it rebellious. It contains lots of cool examples and cases that make you think or encourage you to start a conversation.”

About Challenge Your Professional Life
Taking our own organization as a case study, we explore the concept of rebellion in the workplace. At Rebel we are committed to bringing about change, initiating and realizing our own projects. We make an impact as consultants and investors and have organized ourselves in a nonconventional way. Some of us believe this works – others believe this will eventually mean an end to the organization as we know it.
A book that stimulates out-of-the-box thinking
This book is written in true Rebel spirit: we don’t spare ourselves of critique. We ask open-ended questions that can leave the reader with answers – but we also hope they will stimulate out-of-the-box thinking and create nontraditional pathways forward.
❝ A new way of thinking about the future and ourselves ❞
Because why wouldn’t the workplace serve as a playground, a space for fruitful collaboration and experimenting? This book offers case studies, methods and inspiration for the ways to go about this. For the few crazy enough to believe they can, this is your invitation to become the rebel leader your organization – and the world – has been waiting for.

Rebel(lious) visions for a post-COVID-19 society
From a different workplace
We published our book right before Covid-19 hit, when countries were slowly starting to talk about lockdowns. When the concept of workplace changed, so did the meaning of rebellion in the workplace.
To a different society
And we wondered; what perspectives could Rebels bring to the table for a post-Covid recovery? A recovery, not just in terms of health – but also – a recovery for the economy, the environment, mobility…
