The action plan for building your entrepreneurial empire―one day at a time

While every entrepreneur knows that the key to success is business growth, few ever see it happen. Why? Because they know how to plant seeds, but they don’t understand that the real work lies in helping that seed grow―which takes knowledge, persistence, and patience.

The Entrepreneur’s Book of Actions helps you develop the mindset of a true entrepreneur and provides manageable steps for making your business vision a reality. Informative, inspiring, and based on real-life, hard-earned lessons, it provides common-sense, daily exercises you can jump into on day one. Learn how to drive sustainable business growth by:

* Breaking bad habits―and developing good ones
* Managing your time and money more effectively 
* Hiring the right people for the right job
* Minimizing the effort required to perform basic tasks
* Motivating your staff to be mission-focused
* Creating “free” time to feed your innovative side

You’ll begin to see your business in a completely new way―with a sense of clarity and purpose. You’ll begin identifying the issues that really affect your business―not the ones that feed your anxiety. You’ll become the kind of leader other entrepreneurs look up to―calm, optimistic, driven.

The Entrepreneur’s Book of Actions will provide the direction you need to make the best use of your time, your energy, and your creativity. It’s not isn’t a quick fix. It’s work. But it’s manageable, it’s proven effective―and it will pay off big.

Fortune’s Children: The Fall of the House of Vanderbilt


Read More...

For fans of Downton Abbey, a real-life American version of the Crawley family—Fortune's Children is an enthralling true story that recreates the drama, splendor, and wealth of the legendary Vanderbilts.

Vanderbilt: The very name is synonymous with the Gilded Age. The family patriarch, "the Commodore,” built a fortune that made him the world's richest man by 1877. Yet, less than fifty years after his death, no Vanderbilt was counted among the world's richest people. Written by descendant Arthur T. Vanderbilt II, Fortune's Children traces the dramatic and amazingly colorful history of this great American family, from the rise of industrialist and philanthropist Cornelius Vanderbilt to the fall of his progeny—wild spendthrifts whose profligacy bankrupted a vast inheritance.

College (Un)bound: The Future of Higher Education and What It Means for Students


Read More...

What is the value of a college degree?

The four-year college experience is as American as apple pie. So is the belief that higher education offers a ticket to a better life. But with student-loan debt surpassing the $1 trillion mark and unemployment of college graduates at historic highs, people are beginning to question that value.

In College (Un)bound, Jeffrey J. Selingo, editor at large of the Chronicle of Higher Education, argues that America’s higher education system is broken. The great credential race has turned universities into big business and fostered an environment where middle-tier colleges can command elite university-level tuition while concealing staggeringly low graduation rates, churning out graduates with few of the skills needed for a rapidly evolving job market.

Selingo not only turns a critical eye on the current state of higher education but also predicts how technology will transform it for the better. Free massive online open courses (MOOCs) and hybrid classes, adaptive learning software, and the unbundling of traditional degree credits will increase access to high-quality education regardless of budget or location and tailor lesson plans to individual needs. One thing is certain—the Class of 2020 will have a radically different college experience than their parents.

Incisive, urgent, and controversial, College (Un)bound is a must-read for prospective students, parents, and anyone concerned with the future of American higher education.
