The Start-Up of You

I don’t usually do (free) promotions, but every now and then a topic comes along that I feel strongly enough about to share with the masses. I’ve always believed in The Entity of You and that you should accept yourself (and your career) as having a brand, an image, an offering, a value proposition. And while neither of those things can be controlled entirely, they should at least be thoughtfully influenced. One of the best ways to do that? Run yourself as if you were running a business…a new, agile, adaptive, innovative business. How exactly to do that is pretty much what the New York Times bestseller The Start-Up of You helps us figure out.
So here’s the deal: Reid Hoffman and Ben Casnocha — co-authors — are hosting a live, hour-long webcast in which they will enlighten you further on these principles. These guys don’t play. Reid Hoffman is a world-renowned entrepreneur and investor. He is cofounder and executive chairman of LinkedIn. He is also a partner at Greylock, a leading Silicon Valley venture capital firm. He is an early investor in over 100 technology companies, including Facebook and Zynga. Ben Casnocha is an award-winning entrepreneur and author. He has written for Newsweek and public radio’s Marketplace and appeared on CNN, the CBS Early Show, and CNBC. BusinessWeek has named him one of “America’s best young entrepreneurs.” He has spoken to more than ten thousand students and businesspeople in countries around the world. And you can join them live (and free)…
