<b>Entrepreneur and bestselling author of <i>The Lean Startup</i>, Eric Ries reveals how entrepreneurial principles can be used by businesses of all kinds, ranging from established companies to early-stage startups, to grow revenues, drive innovation, and transform themselves into truly modern organizations, poised to take advantage of the enormous opportunities of the twenty-first century.  <br /></b><br /> In <i>The Lean Startup</i>, Eric Ries laid out the practices of successful startups – building a minimal viable product, customer-focused and scientific testing based on a build-measure-learn method of continuous innovation, and deciding whether to persevere or pivot. In <i>The Startup Way</i>, he turns his attention to an entirely new group of organizations: established enterprises like iconic multinationals GE and Toyota, tech titans like Amazon and Facebook, and the next generation of Silicon Valley upstarts like Airbnb and Twilio. <br /><br />Drawing on his experiences over the past five years working with these organizations, as well as nonprofits, NGOs, and governments, Ries lays out a system of entrepreneurial management that leads organizations of all sizes  and from every industry to sustainable growth and long-term impact. Filled with in-the-field stories, insights, and tools, <i>The Startup Way</i> is an essential road map for any organization navigating the uncertain waters of the century ahead.

<b><b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER<i><br /> USA TODAY </i>BESTSELLER</b><br /><br />Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are the four most influential companies on the planet. Just about everyone thinks they know how they got there. Just about everyone is wrong. <br /></b><br />For all that’s been written about the Four over the last two decades, no one has captured their power and staggering success as insightfully as Scott Galloway. <br /><br /> Instead of buying the myths these compa­nies broadcast, Galloway asks fundamental questions. How did the Four infiltrate our lives so completely that they’re almost impossible to avoid (or boycott)? Why does the stock market forgive them for sins that would destroy other firms? And as they race to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company, can anyone chal­lenge them? <br /><br /> In the same irreverent style that has made him one of the world’s most celebrated business professors, Galloway deconstructs the strategies of the Four that lurk beneath their shiny veneers. He shows how they manipulate the fundamental emotional needs that have driven us since our ancestors lived in caves, at a speed and scope others can’t match. And he reveals how you can apply the lessons of their ascent to your own business or career. <br /><br /> Whether you want to compete with them, do business with them, or simply live in the world they dominate, you need to understand the Four.

<b>The author of the New York Times Bestseller THE $100 STARTUP, shows how to launch a profitable side hustle in just 27 days.</b><br /> <br />To some, the idea of quitting their day job to start a business is exhilarating. For others, it’s terrifying. After all, a job that produces a steady paycheck can be difficult to give up.<br /> <br />But in a time when businesses have so little loyalty to employees that the very notion of “job security” has become a punchline, wouldn’t it be great to have an additional source of income to fall back on? And wouldn’t it be great to make that happen <i>without</i> leaving your day job?<br /> <br />Enter the Side Hustle. Based on detailed information from hundreds of case studies, Chris Guillebeau provides a step-by-step guide that anyone can use to create and launch a profitable project in less than a month. Designed for the busy and impatient, this plan will have you generating income immediately, without the risk of throwing yourself head first into the world of entrepreneurship.  <br /> <br />Whether you just want to make some extra money, or start something that may end up replacing your day job entirely, the side hustle is the new job security. When you generate income from multiple sources, it gives you options, and in today’s world, options aren't just nice to have: they're essential. <br /> <br />You don’t need entrepreneurial experience to launch a profitable side hustle. You don’t need a business degree, know how to code, or be an expert marketer. And you certainly don’t need employees or investors. With this book as your guide, anyone can learn to build a fast track to freedom.

<p> </p><b>The inspiring, life-changing bestseller by the author of LEADERS EAT LAST and TOGETHER IS BETTER.</b><br /><br />In 2009, Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, including more than 28 million who’ve watched his TED Talk based on START WITH WHY -- the third most popular TED video of all time.<br />  <br /> Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over? <br />  <br /> People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it.  <br />  <br /> START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way -- and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.

<p><b>Afraid of closing?</b><br /></p><p>That is an understatement. I used to talk with prospects on and on and on, afraid to close. I thought if I kept the conversation going long enough, they would eventually volunteer their "yes" decision.<br /></p><p>Of course, that never happened.<br /></p><p>So, in my lifelong quest to avoid rejection, I had to find new and effective closes that work.<br /></p><p>Here are 46 years' worth of our best closes. All of these closes are kind and comfortable for prospects, and rejection-free for us. Here are just a few of the closes you will learn and love:<br /></p><p>* The million-dollar close.<br /><br />* Managing the decision-making funnel.<br /><br />* Having prospects close themselves.<br /><br />* Removing risk and uncertainty.<br /><br />* Making objection-solving easy in seconds.<br /><br />* And of course, many strategies to quickly remove the “I need to think it over” objection.<br /></p><p>Old-school closing is old news.

[A message from Robert Kiyosaki, bestselling author of 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad']<br />“Hal Elrod is a genius and his book The Miracle Morning has been magical in my life. <br /><br />“I have been in the human potential / personal development movement since 1973, when I did my first EST training and saw a whole new world of possibilities. Since then, I have studied religions, prayer, meditation, yoga, affirmation, visualization, and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming). I’ve walked on fire, and explored other “unconventional” philosophies, some “too far out there” to mention.<br /><br />“What Hal has done with his acronym SAVERS is taken the “best practices”—developed over centuries of human consciousness development—and condensed the “best of the best” into a daily morning ritual. A ritual that is now part of my day. <br /><br />“Many people do one of the SAVERS daily. For example, many people do the E, the exercise every morning. Others do S for silence or meditation, or S for scribing, journaling every morning. But until Hal packaged SAVERS, no one was doing all six ancient ‘best practices’ every morning.<br /><br />“Miracle Morning is perfect for very busy, successful people. Going through SAVERS every morning is like pumping rocket fuel into my body, mind, and spirit… before I start my day, every day.<br /><br />“As my rich dad often said, “I can always make another dollar, but I cannot make another day.” If you want to maximize every day of your life, read Miracle Morning.”<br />========================================<br />What if you could miraculously wake up tomorrow and any—or every area of your life was transformed? What would be different? Would you be happier? Healthier? More successful? In better shape? Would you have more energy? Less Stress? More Money? Better relationships? Which of your problems would be solved? <br /> <br />What if I told you that there is a "not-so-obvious" secret that is guaranteed to transform any—or literally every area of your life, faster than you ever thought possible? What if I told you it would only take 6 minutes a day? <br /> <br />Enter The Miracle Morning. What’s now being practiced by thousands of people around the world could perhaps be the simplest approach to creating the life you’ve always wanted. It’s been right there in front of us, but this book has finally brought it to life. <br /> <br />Are you ready? The next chapter of your life—the most extraordinary life you've ever imagined—is about to begin. <br /> <br />YOU DESERVE AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE. IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP TO YOUR FULL POTENTIAL
