"Dream it, Believe it, Achieve it," says the successful and young entrepreneur as he offers a hipper and smarter answer to What Color Is Your Parachute for Generation Y.
There are more young entrepreneurs and opportunities in today's job market than ever before. People fresh out of college or looking to change careers have more advanced skill sets and a greater level of sophistication than those who traveled the same road just a decade before. This prescriptive guide to career management is written by someone who's been there, done it well, and helped thousands of others in the process. Filled with real-world advice that counsels as it encourages, it fuses easy-to-follow exercises with practical tips on everything from the all-important interview to overcoming rejection to the art of top-down job hunting. It takes readers step-by-step over bumps in the road -- such as the pre-life crisis, common career traps, and what to do if you're offered a job you're not sure you want. It helps new grads or those newly dissatisfied to focus on what they need to make them happy in a career. Most important, it will reassure anyone facing a new career that discovering and pursuing their passions will lead to far more than just a paycheck.
