Summary

Some of the greatest scientists, philosophers, and historians of all time have advocated the concept of causality, or cause and effect, the idea that we live in a universe in which every effect has a root cause and nothing happens purely by chance. Michael Lee believes that these causal factors – the drivers of change – present challenges for society, and that by studying the possible outcomes of these challenges we can understand, foresee and model the world of tomorrow.
In Codebreaking our future he examines the structural foundations of modern society and provides an overview of the four major challenges that will dominate causal change in this century. Drawing on centuries of classic academic research as well as examples from contemporary scientists, demographers and trend-watchers, Codebreaking our future establishes the methods for predicting the future by studying the causal drivers of all change.

    We entertain ourselves with modest risk—the scary movie, the party full of strangers, the weekend in Vegas. But when it comes to our careers, when self-identity and security hang in the balance, most of us don't like to play the odds very aggressively. While some of us are natural born thrill seekers, the majority of us are hardwired to avoid risk. But, Anne Kreamer argues, in the current workplace, that very avoidance could be putting us in a far more precarious position than we know. 
    Kreamer makes a compelling case that we all need to think and act more like entrepreneurs on our own behalf and become practitioners of the art of risk. Through proprietary research and her own keen record as a trend spotter, Kreamer convinces us of the necessity to embrace risk as a healthy and forward-thinking attribute—and a way to improve the quality and longevity of our working lives. 
    Anne Kreamer is the author of It's Always Personal and Going Gray. She has worked as a columnist for Fast Company and Martha Stewart Living and is a blogger on HarvardBusinessReview.org and NextAvenue.org. Her work has appeared in Time, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Real Simple, and Travel & Leisure.

Whether you have a $1 billion or a $100,000 business, you can use the same insights as these notable companies to learn what it really takes to break your own revenue records. 
    Pinpoint why you aren't growing faster. Understand what it takes to get to hypergrowth. Nail a niche (the #1 missing growth ingredient). Discover what every revenue leader needs to know about building a scalable sales team. There's no time like the present to surpass plateaus and get off of the up-and-down revenue rollercoaster.

    Life Coaching - Life coaching can be a sustainable full-time business. Life is confusing. People are looking for someone to guide them, to support them, and be there when they struggle. In a way, it could be related to therapy, but there are some significant differences. While therapy focuses on processing past events, life coaching is aimed at shaping someone’s future. Some have become healthier, better looking, richer, or found themselves in better relationships because of the right life coach who put them on the best track to success. 
    How to Start an Online Business - In this guide, I have lined up the best ways to choose a business model, to find products that match your niche, and most importantly, how to scale up with the right tolls and means to the extent that you can possibly become very rich. So many marketers don’t tell you the whole truth, and I am here to debunk the myths (sorry, guys). You need to know the truth so you don’t end up burning all your money and make Facebook or YouTube think that another sucker is born.
