Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
What does it take to create the career you want?
It's no secret that the world of work has changed, and we're shifting toward an ever more entrepreneurial, self-reliant, work-from-wherever-you-are economy. That can be a liberating force, and many professionals dream of becoming independent, whether by starting their own businesses, becoming consultants or freelancers, or developing a sideline.
But there's a major obstacle professionals face when they contemplate taking the leap: how to actually make money doing what they love. You may have incredible talent and novel ideas, but figuring out how to get started, building your reputation in a new realm, developing multiple revenue streams, and bringing in a steady flow of new clients can be a daunting prospect.
Dorie Clark, a successful entrepreneur and author, has done it all. And in Entrepreneurial You she provides a blueprint for professional independence, with insights and advice on building your brand, monetizing your expertise, and extending your reach and impact online. In short, engaging chapters she outlines the necessary elements and concrete tactics for entrepreneurial success. She shares the stories of entrepreneurs of all kinds—from consultants and coaches to podcasters, bloggers, and online marketers—who have generated six- and seven-figure incomes.
This book will be your hands-on guide to building a portfolio of revenue streams, both traditional and online, so that you can liberate yourself financially and shape your own career destiny.
"With her trademark clarity and precision, Dorie Clark shares not just the secrets of professional success, but how to define success on your own terms. Entrepreneurial You is a book that should be on the shelf of all entrepreneurs trying to convert their talent and hard work into value for themselves and others."
—Daniel H. Pink, author, To Sell Is Human and Drive
"When I need advice, I call Dorie Clark. When I have a question about entrepreneurship, I call Dorie Clark. When I want to read a book about monetizing ideas I have, I read Entrepreneurial You."
—James Altucher, entrepreneur; author, Choose Yourself
"In the transient advantage economy, careers are taking on new and different shapes. We are learning how to design our own futures in ways that have never been possible before. Dorie Clark's accessible and provocative new book offers a guide to increasing your value, building resilience, and tackling what the world has to offer in an agile, strategic way."
—Rita Gunther McGrath, professor, Columbia Business School
"Dorie Clark has done it! I haven't seen a book yet that comprises such a simple, step-by-step blueprint of proven strategies anyone can follow?until Entrepreneurial You. This is a must-read for any professional looking to leverage their career into multiple income streams."
—Ali Brown, entrepreneur mentor; angel investor; and CEO featured on ABC's Secret Millionaire
"Dorie Clark is an astute marketer and entrepreneur who, in this valuable book, deftly transforms her expertise into actionable insight for readers."
—Doug Conant, founder, ConantLeadership; former President and CEO, Campbell Soup Company; and New York Times–bestselling author, TouchPoints
"In business, we learn how to leverage an organization's assets to continually drive shareholder value until it becomes second nature. What Dorie Clark has brilliantly done in Entrepreneurial You is bridge the 'what' of growing a business with the 'how' of practically applying it to ourselves to drive independent personal success. Amazing!"
—Steven Rice, Chief Human Resources Officer, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
"With Entrepreneurial You, Dorie Clark has provided the best most concrete guide to scaling our businesses--not through growth in size, people, or complexity, but in new metrics like influence, reach and, most importantly, revenue. It's the future of work, and it's available to all of us, at far less cost than historically possible.”
—Jennifer Brown, author of Inclusion: Diversity, The New Workplace & The Will To Change
