My desire to release myself from the geographical shackles of traditional employment and business ownership has been transformed in to a clear, concise, plan of action. I no longer hope to create a business I can literally work from anywhere, I now KNOW it is absolutely going to happen. In fact, it already is.
If there's only one book you add to your business library, this is it!
Newman's book was the result of her foray into internet marketing from the trenches of sports television. Having started out as a freelance technician who sold her services to the highest bidder, Newman rose through the ranks of the male-dominated world of sports TV to a senior role at Fox. Along the way, she competed on an equal footing with her male counterparts, and became a major player in the Fox Sports executive lineup.
Today, Newman makes her living as an internet marketing expert, and has tailored her book to those actively seeking to make the same leap. Newman left Fox Sports to gain her life back when she got tired of working 80 hour weeks--including weekends away from home practically every week--and realized that her children were growing up without her. She and her husband had semi-retired into what she thought would be a relaxed and abundant lifestyle, only to find their carefully crafted plans devastated by the recession.
This forced Newman to seek out a new career that she could work from home, while still providing the kind of income that she was accustomed to and the lifestyle that she really desired. After months of research, Newman settled on internet marketing as the solution to her career dilemma and financial challenges. The only problem was that she felt that she lacked the necessary skills to be successful in her new endeavor.
But after spending hours in deep thought pondering her dilemma, Newman had a breakthrough--she already had all of skills and expertise necessary to become successful online. All she needed to do was to think about her abilities in a slightly different way in order to tap the power and capabilities they provided. With this epiphany, her transformation from corporate executive to internet marketer was complete.
Experience Mapping is the product of this career transformation. Divided into three parts, it gives the reader a detailed and actionable roadmap to making the leap from one career into another.
Part 1, Planning to Succeed, sets the stage for personal advancement and career reinvention. Newman explains her concept and helps the reader to properly consider all of the factors regarding career growth, and the limiting factors that impede it.
In Part 2, Experience Mapping, Newman meticulously maps out, step by step, her detailed process methodology for leveraging past experience into future success. This section provides a very specific set of instructions for implementing the powerful Experience Mapping system. It is a very interactive approach and includes a worksheet that helps to facilitate the process.
Part 3, Internet Success, is written specifically for entrepreneurs seeking to launch an online enterprise. Here Newman recounts her own transition from the executive suite to the internet, and distills her learnings down into practical and very useful advice.
Newman has clearly scored a perfect 10 in her first effort as an author. Experience Mapping provides a thoughtful, proven and systematic approach to the personal and career reinvention challenges that so many people are facing in the wake of the Great Recession. Regardless of the life transition one faces, regardless of what industry you're leaving and where you are headed, Newman's clearly articulated concept of Experience Mapping can make the process flow smoothly.
