Self made : becoming empowered, self-reliant, and rich in every way

May 27, 2016
Galan, Nely, 1963- author.
New York : Spiegel & Grau, [2016]
xx, 214 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm
"What does it mean to be self-made? It means that you own a part of you that no one else can take away. It results in freedom--financial, mental, emotional. It means that if you stumble, you could make success and happiness for yourself all over again. Informed by her experience as a Cuban immigrant who learned that financial independence equals freedom, Nely Galan has been spreading that message to audiences across the country. She tells women to stop waiting for permission to go after what they want from their bosses, spouses, and companies. For her, success is defined by helping yourself and your family to a better life. Self-Made is a colorful, no-nonsense manual for aligning your money with your mission. Nely's frank and feisty approach motivates women to: Get Out of Survival Mode ... where you are one problem away from catastrophe Make Money: Learn how to invest $5 each week and become a millionaire. Change your mindset from instant gratification to goal orientation. Don't buy shoes; buy buildings! Focus on the ultimate: to work because you want to, not because you have to; to be able to reward yourself and your children with things like an education, trips, owning a home; to feel actualized, self-reliant, and self-made."-- Provided by publisher.

The hockey stick principles : the 4 key stages to entrepreneurial success

Hitting the ice : beginning to develop your idea ; Skating on thin ice : leveraging seed capital to get started -- The blade years.

"Many business books fuel unrealistic notions about what a good idea looks like, how fast a founder should attract investment, and how quickly growth will take off. The problem with this mythology is that it can sometimes end with entrepreneurs abandoning their dreams too soon if they don't see immediate results. In The Hockey Stick Principles, author Bobby Martin shifts his focus away from all the hype about rapid growth and the pursuit of funding and instead takes a look at the real process behind getting a good idea off the ground. Using a hockey stick as a metaphor and highlighting four key phases, Martin shows the healthy way a business should grow and uses entertaining stories and interviews with successful entrepreneurs like the founders of LendingTree, Under Armour, and iContact, woven throughout the book to not only share a wealth of advice, but to chronicle the ins and outs of different phases"-- Provided by publisher.

O great one! : a little story about the awesome power of recognition

May 10, 2016
Novak, David, 1953- author.
New York : Portfolio, [2016]
xiv, 223 pages ; 22 cm
"Jeff took a deep breath to calm down. He was about to stand in front of the employees of the Happy Face Toy Company's faltering Cleveland factory. As the new CEO, he'd been advised to close this factory as soon as possible, but he wanted to see it first. "How hard could this be?" he wondered, gathering the courage to ask them about their jobs. He had no idea what he was in for. When was the last time you told your colleagues how much you value them? It sounds like a trivial thing in the middle of a busy work day. But as David Novak discovered during his years as a hard charging executive, there's nothing trivial about recognition. It can make a life-or-death difference to any organization, when people see that someone important really notices and appreciates their contributions. Rather than explain the power of recognition in a typical business book, Novak decided to write a fun story that draws on his real-world experiences at Pepsi and Yum! Brands, as well as his personal life. The story opens when Jeff Johnson becomes the third-generation CEO of his family business, after the sudden death of his father. The Happy Face Toy Company had many hits in the 1950s and 60s, including Crazy Paste, but its results have been declining for more than a decade. The board has given Jeff just one year to turn the business around, or else they'll have to sell it to the highest bidder. As Jeff races to save his family's legacy by getting the company back on track, he meets downtrodden factory workers and an uninspired executive team. Then a birthday gift from his own grandson gives Jeff an important insight into why Happy Face lost its old culture of innovation and excitement, along with its profitability. Jeff comes up with an idea that seems crazy
