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.

I chose the book because it suggested a different way of doing and seeing. I'm disappointed in that it is merely a tease and advertisement to join and/or subscribe rather a complete work in itself. Where's the beef?

This book is so fascinating! I was intrigued from the start. In the first few chapters I was amazed at how my vision altered on power, responsibility, and possibilities. By the end of the book I found out: who I am, what I want to become, and how to do that. Earning Serendipity will always be an inspiration in my life!

Also, Glenn's father is very wise and inundated with captivating quotes to live by.

Earning Serendipity did a great job of helping me realize the greatest asset and key to my future and success. That asset/key is myself and how I respond in certain situations. Glenn truly captures your attention through the power of his childhood lessons and stories. As he walks you through his life you are able to better understand how you too can earn better fortune in the workplace and with the people you interact with on a day to day basis by utilizing four simple skills. Easy read, great lessons.

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

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.
