    Are we living the good life-and what defines 'good', anyway? Americans today are constructing a completely different framework for success than their parents' generation, using new metrics that TEDWomen speaker and columnist Courtney Martin has termed collectively the "New Better Off". The New Better Off puts a name to the American phenomenon of rejecting the traditional dream of a 9-to-5 job, home ownership, and a nuclear family structure-illuminating the alternate ways Americans are seeking happiness and success. Including commentary on recent changes in how we view work, customs and community, marriage, rituals, money, living arrangements, and spirituality, The New Better Off uses personal stories and social analysis to explore the trends shaping our country today. Martin covers growing topics such as freelancing, collaborative consumption, communal living, and the breaking down of gender roles. The New Better Off is about the creative choices individuals are making in their vocational and personal lives, but it's also about the movements, formal and informal, that are coalescing around the New Better Off idea-people who are reinventing the social safety net and figuring out how to truly better their own communities.

    The cofounder of Fast Company shows that opportunities for extraordinary innovation may be closer than you think. A new era of business and leadership cries out for new stories of success, and new strategies for bringing them to life. Today, the way to win big, argues bestselling author William C. Taylor, is to relentlessly rethink the everyday. The unthinking assumptions your industry makes about its processes and its customers are ripe territory for innovation. Taylor goes inside nineteen unique organizations that have become unlikely change agents in their otherwise humdrum fields. For example: At a 150-bed hospital in Anchorage, Alaska, a shift in language helped the staff feel more invested in patient health—and produced extraordinary health outcomes in the local Native American community. Miami Beach’s 1111 Lincoln Road is a parking garage that also serves as a wedding venue, apartment complex, shopping center, and social hub.USAA, which provides insurance to military officers, teaches salespeople empathy through a simulated overseas deployment in which they subsist on MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) and don Kevlar vests.Pal’s Sudden Service, a cult favorite fast-food restaurant, delivers unmatched speed and order accuracy thanks to its unique approach to employee training. Taylor reveals that these businesses share a set of core principles that help them pioneer unlikely innovation: They strive to be the only ones doing what they’re doing instead of competing in crowded fields; they don’t let past experience limit what they can imagine; they seek ways to be kind as well as clever; and they share they value they create with those who helped create it. By embracing these strategies, Taylor argues, leaders in any industry will be well on their way to upending the status quo, and finding opportunity where competitors didn’t or couldn’t look.From the Hardcover edition.

    For those times when hard work and persistence just aren’t enough, Terri Sjodin offers an inspiring guide to getting scrappy and beating the odds.Terri Sjodin loves scrappy people—those who beat the odds with a blend of cleverness and fighting spirit. People who see big problems and come up with big solutions. People like the clever Girl Scout who sold 117 boxes of cookies in two hours outside a medical marijuana dispensary, or the entrepreneur who turned his home into an indoor jungle to sell investors on the Rainforest Café Restaurant chain.

But today it takes more than just creativity, more than just persistence, more than just a dream to reach big goals—it takes a mindset and a strategy. Sjodin explains the common elements behind every successful scrappy effort. Drawing on research, interviews, and her own personal experience, she identifies the practices that will help you develop the right mindset. She shares stories of scrappy tactics that have worked, and those that have crashed and burned, to help readers pursue their own vision. Whether you’re a sales rep looking to close that big deal, a job-seeker trying to land your dream job, or a CEO who wants to reach the next level of success, the fastest way to get what you want is to get scrappy.

    A New York Times business journalist explains why it’s important for people to pursue big creative projects and identifies both the obstacles and the productive habits that emerge on the path to completion. Whether it’s the Great American Novel or a groundbreaking new app, many people want to create a big thing, but finding the motivation to get started, let alone complete the work, can be daunting. In The Big Thing, New York Times business writer and editor Phyllis Korkki combines real life stories, science, and insights from her own experience to illuminate the factors that drive people to complete big creative projects—and the obstacles that threaten to derail success. In the course of creating her own big thing—this book—Korkki explores the individual and collaborative projects of others: from memoirs, art installations, and musical works to theater productions, small businesses, and charities. She identifies the main aspects of a big thing, including meaningful goals; focus and effort; the difficulties posed by the demands of everyday life; and the high risk of failure and disappointment. Korkki also breaks down components of the creative process and the characteristics that define it, and offers her thoughts on avoiding procrastination, on staying motivated, scheduling a routine, and overcoming self-doubt and the restrictions of a day job. Filled with inspiring stories, practical advice, and a refreshing dose of honesty, The Big Thing doesn’t minimize the negative side of such pursuits—including the fact that big projects are hard to complete and raise difficult questions about one’s self-worth. Wise, humorous, and good-natured, The Big Thing is a meditation on the importance of self-expression and purpose.

    When it comes to how to succeed as an entrepreneur, we are besotted with advice. According to bestselling author Alan Weiss, success is a combination of opportunism, very disciplined work, luck, timing, and ignoring most advice. In other words, it means striking out on your own, original path to success. In Million Dollar Maverick, he explains that entrepreneurs don’t take advice, they create value and then monetize it. They do what they love and are great at and find a way to sell it to people. They do not—contrary to “conventional wisdom”—chase money. They attract money. And most of all they think differently, act decisively—and, if talent and timing are with them, succeed quickly. Drawing on over thirty years of experience as a consultant, speaker, and global expert, Weiss shares his story and “Million Dollar Tips,” not found in any of his other books, to help entrepreneurs gain influence, build confidence, and develop the critical thinking skills they need to discover the inside track to rapid success.

The human mind connects the word prosper with money, but we do not get more money until we prosper inwardly by increasing our knowledge of God, the way he works, and by deepening our ability to express ourselves.

    A special message for young adults from Dale Carnegie… In this audiobook, I have attempted to outline some of the things you must know, if you are going to get along in our ever-changing world. This knowledge is not the sort of knowledge you have been taught in school—but it is just as true, and just as vital to you as a multiplication table or your ABCs. But one thing you must remember.

    Secrets of the Millionaire Mind reveals the missing link between wanting success and achieving it! Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get rich easily, while others are destined for a life of financial struggle? Is the difference found in their education, intelligence, skills, timing, work habits, contacts, luck, or their choice of jobs, businesses, or investments? The shocking answer is: None of the above! In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: “Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!” Eker does this by identifying your “money and success blueprint.” We all have a personal money blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is this blueprint, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives. You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money—and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it! The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is two books in one. Part I explains how your money blueprint works. Through Eker’s rare combination of street smarts, humor, and heart, you will learn how your childhood influences have shaped your financial destiny. You will also learn how to identify your own money blueprint and “revise” it to not only create success but, more important, to keep and continually grow it. In Part II you will be introduced to seventeen “Wealth Files,” which describe exactly how rich people think and act differently than most poor and middle-class people. Each Wealth File includes action steps for you to practice in the real world in order to dramatically increase your income and accumulate wealth. If you are not doing as well financially as you would like, you will have to change your money blueprint. Unfortunately your current money blueprint will tend to stay with you for the rest of your life, unless you identify and revise it, and that’s exactly what you will do with the help of this extraordinary book. According to T. Harv Eker, it’s simple. If you think like rich people think and do what rich people do, chances are you’ll get rich too!

    The bestselling authors of Our Iceberg Is Melting (more than one million sold) are back with their second business fable, this time on the eternal tensions of management vs. leadership, planning vs. spontaneity, big vs. small.This short, full-color fable tackles the most fundamental questions in business: Why do organizations rise and fall, and how can they rise again in the face of adversity? It distills decades of research by bestselling Harvard Business School professor and leadership consultant John Kotter. Once upon a time, there was a clan of meerkats living in the Kalahari, a warm and dry stretch of land in the southern part of the African continent. After years of easy growth for their clan, a drought sharply reduces their resources and enables dangerous new predators. The harmony of the clan is damaged as the meerkats quarrel about possible solutions, and even whether a solution is required at all. One young, bright, and adventurous worker, Nadia, sets out to find other clans, to see if other meerkats have fresh ideas that could help her struggling clan. She discovers a much smaller group that does things very differently, with much more flexibility and team spirit. But not everything in the new group is as perfect as it seems at first. And they are just as likely to fall victim to some of the most dangerous words in any organization: “That’s not how we do it here.” This simple yet rich story will connect with a broad range of people who need to combine flexibility and systems in a challenging climate.
