Review

'In our challenging and uncertain times, Glenn Llopis presents clear and positive lessons for a new form of enlightened business--one that addresses both the professional and civic responsibilities of his audience.' -- --Adlai Wertman, professor of clinical management and organization, founding director of the Society and Business Lab, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California

About the Author

Glenn Llopis, founder/chairman of the Center for Hispanic Leadership, combines a UCLA education with fast-tracked years at the Gallo Wine Company and Sunkist, where, at 26, he became the youngest senior manager in the company's 100-plus-year history. His early successes opened the door for his next endeavor: vice president of the $1 billion Norway Seafood Co. at only 30 years old. In the decade since, Llopis has parlayed his unique Cuban upbringing and traditional corporate experience into nontraditional ventures that have been featured in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Fortune, and the Financial Times, and on Larry King Live, Good Morning America, MSNBC, and Yahoo! News. Llopis currently resides in Irvine, CA.

This is a very easy read. The vocab is very simple and the concepts are broken down and explained very well. The ideas are not only applicable to businesses and career oriented people, but life in general. I really liked this book and what it has to offer.

I've never been a huge reader, but this book had me hooked from start to finish. I've always heard that "the harder you work, the luckier you get", but this delineates the truthfulness of that principal. The way Mr. Llopis puts it all together is masterful, with a distinct hint of his personality. I highly recommend this book to all entrepreneurs, sale-people, parents, friends, students, or anyone that is looking to "climb the ladder".

Wow! The first thing that struck me after finishing this book is how incredibly simple, yet seemingly elusive, creating ones own fortune could be.

This has got to be one of the best approaches to business (or life, really) that I have ever read; plotting a four step approach that encompasses a vision to see, seize, grow and share opportunity. It is a philosophy that will resonate strongly with young professionals of my generation, especially given the relevance to today's uncertain times.

Amazing!!! Earning Serendipity is a must read. I have never been a huge reader but this book clearly grabbed my attention. Not only is it full of great information but it is an easy read, it is easy to understand, the vocabulary is simple but straightforward, and it's not to long. And although it might be short and easy to read I believe that I got more out of this book then I have any school textbook I have ever read for a business class. Also, even though it is typically geared to the business world or business professional I think that any reader would benefit and learn life lessons from this book. I definitely plan on re reading and recommending this book to others. The way it flows and Glenn Llopis use of examples is just amazing. If you don't have it now I suggest you go get one for yourself and begin reading it.

In this book Mr. Llopis teaches 4 important skills that I can learn how to develope in my career, business and my life. The first one is, seeing with circular vision. Second, Sowing Entrepreneural Seeds. Third, Growing Seed of Greatest Potential. Fourth, Sharing the Harvest. Sharing the Hravest skill is the one skill that stuck out to me the most because it's not always about you, you have to focus on meeting other people's need to improve yours as Mr. Llopis states. This reading was not tough at all I understood everything without having to go back and re read it. If you wanna succeed in your career I recommend to read this book. I loved this quote from Mr. Llopis also, "You are your most immediate and on-going opportunity."

Although this book is recommended for people working in the business world and others learning about business, I would personally recommend this book to everyone. This book does not just teach you how to succeed in the business world, it teaches you how to succeed in every endeavor you go after. The concept of earning your own luck may seem a little far fetched, but Glenn Llopis explains it in four simple steps. This book is such an easy read because he uses everyday language to explain a complex topic. May favorite part about Earning Serendipity is that it challenged me in ways I never knew I needed to be challenged in.

This book is a good read and i got a lot out of it. I learned that its not about who you know in the business world but its about taking advantage of what you are good at and know who you are and do what you want. this book made me realize I should never settle but i should do what I have always wanted. I recommend this book if your a person who would just take any job because this book will make you want to go get your dream job. its a really easy read and it gives great advice on how you should live in the work area. I met the author and you can see the passion he has for this book and what it stands for.

Who knew we could position ourselves and create our own good fortune and luck? Learn and develop skills on how to do just this after reading this book! I was forced to self-assess myself through the lessons taught and ideas delivered in this book! Opportunities are continuously available for the open, seeking eye, and Glenn Llopis teaches how to spot, position, and be ready for these opportunities. This is a must read and a book that should be read annually if not more often. You will get something different out of it everytime. "It's not about the quantities of opportunities but the momentum." -Llopis, p.7
