My new book from Harvard Business Review Press, Entrepreneurial You: Monetize Your Expertise, Create Multiple Income Streams, and Thrive, is now available for pre-order and will be released on October 3, 2017.
What does it take to create the career you want? It’s no secret that the world of work has changed, and we’re shifting toward an ever more entrepreneurial, self-reliant, work-from-wherever-you-are economy. That can be a liberating force, and many professionals dream of becoming independent, whether by starting their own businesses, becoming consultants or freelancers, or developing a sideline.
But there’s a major obstacle professionals face when they contemplate taking the leap: how to actually make money doing what they love. You may have incredible talent and novel ideas, but figuring out how to get started, building your reputation in a new realm, developing multiple revenue streams, and bringing in a steady flow of new clients can be a daunting prospect.
In Entrepreneurial You, it’s my goal to provide you with a blueprint for professional independence, including insights and advice on building your brand, monetizing your expertise, and extending your reach and impact online. You’ll learn the necessary elements and concrete tactics for entrepreneurial success. In the book, I share the stories of entrepreneurs of all kinds―from consultants and coaches to podcasters, bloggers, and online marketers―who have generated six- and seven-figure incomes, as well as my own insights from building a high six-figure solo consulting business.
This book will be your hands-on guide to building a portfolio of revenue streams, both traditional and online, so that you can liberate yourself financially and shape your own career destiny.
Whether you’re an experienced entrepreneur looking to expand your revenue streams, an aspiring side hustler starting your business, or a happily-settled corporate executive looking for creative new ideas about how to think entrepreneurially, my goal is to teach you the strategies you need to succeed and build the career and life you want.
