As business books go, it is hard to find anything that comes close to this in both style and feel-good factor, and it is well worth picking up. (Talk Business, August 2014)
A good, practical introductory business book, with guidance for life in general as well (The Gateway, November 2014)
From the Author
Have you ever felt like you don't fit in? Have you had that feeling like "I really think business would work better if we treated it more like THIS?" Do you wish there was a better way to do what you think needs doing in the world?
You're the freak I've been looking for.
The premise is this: it's a book on how to do business for those of us who aren't built for the cubicle farms, who yearn to do things our own way, or at least do things in a much more human way. There are some basic business fundamentals in here, thrown alongside some novel ways to approach tasks and goals. I promise, this isn't your typical business book.
If you're the online type, we use the hashtag #proudfreak to talk about this book and just to connect with each other (note: some people who aren't talking about the book use this hashtag and sometimes, it's a little ... interesting).
This book explains in part what I think is coming next (heck, what I think is already here but people haven't yet fully realized), and it's also a guidebook for how you might do something with that information. I believe the factory/industrial mindset of the last 50+ years is about to swing towards something much more customized, much smaller, and where it'll matter a great deal more that you connect with the people who help you feel like you "belong."
This is a "do" book, not a "think" book. Be warned.
