Summary

In the United States alone, there are currently 27M entrepreneurs starting and running their own business. The VC community invested over $71.94B into those ideas, and saw the rise of unique apps exceed 2.8M.
50% of new businesses fail within the first 5 years and 70% fail in the first 10. 
Entrepreneurs are expected to be all things to all people in their business, but few have the necessary skills to excel in every domain required to run their organization (i.e. – sales, marketing, finance, operations, talent/culture).
Over 40 business leaders, entrepreneurs, marketers, investors, and advisors join the two accomplished authors to share their insights to help entrepreneurs overcome the odds and make their big idea a success.
Easy to read in one sitting but designed to offer strategic and practical advice at each stage of growth to allow the founder to reference back to it again and again as they grow.
Takes founders through 5 clearly defined stages of growth, explaining how to identify the challenges, how to solve them, and who to bring in at what time to help them grow to the next stage.
Shares not only the successes of businesses, but also the failures and lessons learned along the way.
Written by two accomplished, sought-after marketers who have seen organizations struggle getting their big idea to market and wrestled with many of the common challenges along the way.

    If you want to accomplish what's important to you, discipline and willpower won't get you where you need to go. In this iconoclastic new book, Susan Fowler reveals compelling insights and actions to help you master and maintain your motivation.  
     
    Motivation is at the heart of everything you do and everything you want to do but don't. Unfortunately, the ways we typically motivate ourselves don't work. Relying on sheer determination eventually becomes exhausting—it's not sustainable. And even setting goals can backfire—if you're not setting them for the right reasons.  
     
    Susan Fowler says motivation is energy, and what matters is the quality, not the quantity. Traditional “motivators” such as fear, guilt, or the promise of a reward provide low-quality, short-term energy. Drawing on the latest empirical research, she proves that high-quality, optimal motivation is a skill that you can learn and apply.  
     
    Science tells us that satisfying three basic needs—for choice, connection, and competence—is essential to optimal motivation. You need to feel like you've picked your path, not that you're being driven down it. Your goal should be linked to people or a purpose meaningful to you. And you want to continually learn and grow.  
     
    Through practical exercises and eye-opening stories, Fowler shows you how to identify and shift the quality of your motivation. The skill to master your motivation is important—it may be your greatest opportunity to evolve, grow in wisdom, and be the light the world so desperately needs.

     "Astute."—New York Times  Ayn Rand’s complicated notoriety as popular writer, leader of a political and philosophical cult, reviled intellectual, and ostentatious public figure endured beyond her death in 1982. In the twenty-first century, she has been resurrected as a serious reference point for mainstream figures, especially those on the political right from Paul Ryan to Donald Trump. Mean Girlfollows Rand’s trail through the twentieth century from the Russian Revolution to the Cold War and traces her posthumous appeal and the influence of her novels via her cruel, surly, sexy heroes. Outlining the impact of Rand’s philosophy of selfishness, Mean Girl illuminates the Randian shape of our neoliberal, contemporary culture of greed and the dilemmas we face in our political present.
