Do you sometimes get that feeling that you have something much bigger to offer the universe, but then it fills you with fear and anxiety, so you think maybe I'll just pay it safe? But what is safe?

Here's your recipe book for starting your revolutionary business, including some of what you will learn: How to be as weird as you want while providing a viable business structure to support it What most people are missing from the basic frameworks of doing business How to turn passions into businesses How to build out the Digital Channel What Kickstarter and Square mean for the future of business) Take the plunge.

    • Invisibles : the power of anonymous work in an age of relentless self-promotion
      Invisibles : the power of anonymous work in an age of relentless self-promotion
      David Zweig.
      "An inspiring look at the hidden stars who perform essential work without recognition. Expanding from his acclaimed Atlantic article, "What Do Fact-Checkers and Anesthesiologists Have in Common?" David Zweig explores what we can all learn from a modest group he calls "Invisibles." Their careers require expertise, skill, and dedication, yet they receive little or no public credit. And that's just fine with them. Zweig met with a wide range of Invisibles to discover first hand what motivates them and how they define success and satisfaction. His fascinating subjects include... - a virtuoso cinematographer for major films. - the lead engineer on some of the world's tallest skyscrapers. - a high-end perfume maker. - an elite interpreter at the United Nations"-- Provided by publisher.

      Love 'em or lose 'em : getting good people to stay
      Beverly Kaye and Sharon Jordan-Evans.
      Since employees who walk out the door cost their companies up to 200 percent of their annual salaries to replace, retention is one of the most important issues facing businesses today. And with so many surveys reporting that employees are unhappy and not working up to their full potential, engagement is a second serious and costly issue. The latest edition of this Wall Street Journal bestseller offers twenty-six simple strategies -- from A to Z -- that managers can use to address their employees' real concerns and keep them engaged. --Publishers description.
