Which Book Should You Read If You're Looking for a New Job, Career, or Business Start Up?





I don't recommend too many career books but this is a major exception. If you want as much detail as possible, as much understanding and clarity as you'll find anywhere, this is the read for you. Click on the following link to find the book at Amazon.

What Color Is Your Parachute 2018 by Richard N. Bolles*


(*Sadly, Bolles died in 2017 but this was completed before his death. Not sure if anyone will take up the task and continue to flow. These books have been published since around 1970.)

Success Is No Accident!



"There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed." -- Ray Goforth
"Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don't wish it were easier; wish you were better." -- Jim Rohn

Persistence Wins the Game



“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race.” –Calvin Coolidge

It's OK to Fail




“Don't be afraid to fail. Don't waste energy trying to cover up failure. Learn from your failures and go on to the next challenge. It's OK to fail. If you're not failing, you're not growing.” –H. Stanley Judd
