Summary

A powerful new kind of competitive advantage is now possible thanks to technological and social disruptions that are already occurring. These disruptions revolutionize how companies can partner to create new growth. The Reciprocity Advantage shares a model for creating that growth: define your right-of-way (the underutilized resources you already own that you can share with others), partner to do what you can’t do alone, experiment to learn, and scale the new business at low risk.

  

Reciprocity and advantage are words that are not normally seen together, but reciprocity—giving now to get later—will become a normal part of winning in the future. The Reciprocity Advantage shows you how to leverage new forces like digital natives and cloud-served supercomputing now into massively scalable, profitable, incremental growth for your business.



Provocative and pragmatic, leading ten-year forecaster Bob Johansen and experienced business developer Karl Ronn describe how to lean in to disruptions to create new growth for your business. They include actual cases showing early successes for a range of companies and nonprofits like IBM, Microsoft, Google, Apple, and TED. They then provide key exercises to define your promising new ideas and nurture them into healthy new businesses. 

 

Their recommendations are based on practical experience in managing the problems of new business creation and many years of helping others see the future more clearly. Distilled from hands-on work, this book gets you started today on creating your own reciprocity advantage.

    An immediate bestseller in 1859, Self-help propelled its author to fame and rapidly became one of Victorian Britain’s most important statements on the allied virtues of hard work, thrift and perseverance. Smiles’ most celebrated book sold 20,000 copies in its first year, became known as the ‘bible of mid-Victorian liberalism’ and is the prototype of today’s motivational and self-help blockbusters. Steve Shipside’s brilliant interpretation of Smiles’ Self-help enables twenty-first century readers to put into practice the insights of one of the world’s most famous self-improvement books. Discover:
    • Why being true to yourself will help you avoid debt;
    • That learning to sod the Joneses is the key to happiness;
    • How to get back on the horse and learn from failure;
    • Why every moment counts when it comes to self-improvement;
    • That learning to visualise victory can help you achieve your goals.
    This interpretation of Samuel Smiles’s Self-help is not a substitute for the original. Its purpose is simply to illustrate the timeless nature of Smiles’s insights by bringing them to life in a contemporary context. Samuel Smiles’ Self-help is an enlightening, entertaining accompaniment to one of the most famous and inspiring books ever written.

    Part 1 of 2 of Portfolio Management. 
    Many people consider investing to be a daunting activity. They are bewildered by the profusion and proliferation of investment alternatives, rattled by the fluctuations in financial prices, overwhelmed by the presence of mighty institutional investors, confused by exotic instruments and complicated investment strategies, confused by the intricacies of the tax system, and exasperated by the financial scams that periodically rock market. 
    Notwithstanding these concerns, investing can be fairly manageable, rewarding, and enjoyable experience, if we adhere to certain principles and guidelines. By this we can expect and hope to maximize our returns by diversifying our investments into suitable portfolios. For this, each and every investor has to be well educated about economy, investment options, market conditions and its consequences. 
    The main objective is to select the suitable investment criteria like if we want better returns, or consider risk factors, or liquidity or safety of principal. By this we can set our portfolio objectives and construct our portfolio according to our needs and manage it with respect to the market conditions and the securities fairing in the market.

    This book is a sequel to my first hotel book, Great American Hoteliers: Pioneers of the Hotel Industry AuthorHouse 2009. It tells the fascinating and unpredictable stories of seventeen hotel pioneers who were (and are) important in the development of the hotel industry in the United States. Many of them are relatively unknown and lost in the dustbin of American history.
    
    Their biographies comprise this sequel called Great American Hoteliers Volume 2: Pioneers of the Hotel Industry:
    
    	  Stewart William Bainum (1920-2014) 
    	  Curtis Leroy Carlson (1914-1999) 
    	  Cecil Burke Day (1934-1978) 
    	  Louis Jacob Dinkler (1864-1928) 
    	  Eugene Chase Eppley (1884-1958) 
    	  Roy C. Kelley (1905-1997) 
    	  Arnold S. Kirkeby (1901-1962) 
    	  Julius Manger (1868-1937) 
    	  Robert R. Meyer (1882-1947) 
    	  Albert Pick, Jr. (1895-1977) 
    	  Jay Pritzker (1922-1999) 
    	  Harris Rosen (1939) 
    	  Ian Schrager (1946) 
    	  Vernon B. Stouffer (1901-1974) 
    	  William Cornelius Van Horne (1843-1915) 
    	  Robert E. Woolley (1935) 
    	  Stephen Allen Wynn (1942) 
    
    As you will note, four of these great American hoteliers are alive and productive as I write this sequel: Harris Rosen, Ian Schrager, Robert Woolley and Steve Wynn.
