Work 2.0. Nowhere to hide

by Sergiusz Prokurat

Work is changing profoundly in new digital age. The whole world of work is in evolution. The old employment system of secure, lifelong jobs with predictable advancement and stable pay is dead. For some time now we’ve observed a greater focus on flexibility, mobility, and the ability of quick adaptation of workers. The new era of Work 2.0 is coming driven by: work virtualisation, nonroutine creativity, hyperspecialisation, and reduction of communication, coordination and interactions costs. This calls for a different approach to management and work. However, technology is a double-edged sword, with the power to both liberate and enslave.

The recession is said to be over, but you’ll never get your old job back – it’s disappeared and you can’t even blame the Chinese! Your job no longer exists – it’s been automated. Book “Work 2.0” isn’t just a description of what is happening to the labor market, how we’re working nowadays, it’s a complete how-to guide for successfully navigating today’s treacherous jobs environment, mitigating the risks of job loss, job insecurity, and increasing automation. Book is discussing the repercussions of automation, changes in the economic balance between East and West in terms of work, the growing importance of innovation and creativity for creating value, how companies can take advantage of the new situation and how can individuals stay competitive on the labour market.

How do you survive and thrive in the new labour market? How can workers cope in an economy which doesn’t generate stable lifelong careers? How can companies remain competitive and manage armies of dispersed hyperspecialists? You’ve become the newest victim of Work 2.0, a force you can’t possibly fight – but you can join it! If you are looking for a job – why not create one for yourself? If your company is losing its best talent – why not listen to what your workers are saying. Let them work anywhen. After all, there is nowhere to hide from the wave of creative destruction.



How I Made Over $100,000 Online Doing What I Love

by Henri Junttila

The Truth About Making a Living Online

What if you could quit your job and make money online doing what you love?

You may think it’s an unreachable dream sold by sleazy marketers, but it turns out it’s possible. You can make it happen if you’re determined enough to put in the work.

In this book Henri reveals how he’s made a living online since 2009. This is a real life case study with practical advice for beginning online entrepreneurs, without the fluff and hype.

Henri’s journey began by blowing over $10,000 on get-rich-quick programs and coaching.

He then stumbled around for several years trying to figure out how to earn a living online. In 2009 he finally hit upon success.

Within one year his earnings shot up from $0 to over $2,000 per month, all while he and his girlfriend moved to Spain for a year to enjoy tapas, sunshine, and learn the Spanish language.

Henri currently lives in northern Finland with his partner and son. His online business allows him to explore his interests (writing and cartooning), while leaving plenty of time to play silly games with his son, Vincent.

Who this book is written for:

– Those who are new to the online business space

– Those who want to get paid to do what they love

– Those who want to read an honest success story

– Those who secretly want to do what they love (but are scared to start)

Who this book is not for:

– People looking for a shortcut to success

– Experienced entrepreneurs making $1,000+ per month (although there probably are nuggets)

Here’s what you’ll learn:

– What wasting $10,000+ taught Henri (and how you can avoid the same fate)

– The essential shift that helped Henri go from $0 to $500 per month within 3 months

– How to build a 1,000 subscriber blog in 101 days

– The art of creating and selling your first digital product

– How Henri went from 1,000 to 10,000+ blog subscribers

– The pitfalls and mistakes you must avoid

– The key to selling a $297 course (without being sleazy)

– The power of a membership site (and the journey leading up to it)

This book is for you if you’re an entrepreneur, an intrapreneur, or thinking about starting your own business.” Gini Dietrich, CEO, Arment Dietrich.

Threads: One Family’s Unlikely Adventure in Business, Mission and Church Planting

by Arlene Richardson

When newlyweds Steve and Arlene Richardson arrived in Southeast Asia, they were full of hopes and dreams of befriending their neighbors and sharing the gospel in a Muslim-majority country of nearly 175 million and very few believers.

From learning a new language to making a home in a crowded city neighborhood, the cultural barriers seemed enormous. The Richardsons were often overwhelmed with the economic needs of their new neighbors, as they observed their friends struggling to provide for their families in the face of crushing poverty. Even greater were the spiritual strongholds that held them in the grip of religious tradition.

How could they even begin to help?

The unexpected answer came in the form of a cardboard box of quilts from North Carolina and a tiny village woman who became a treasured member of the family. Arlene, who had never sewed a quilt in her life, launched a business venture that brought Muslim and Christian employees under one roof, designing, cutting and sewing quilts for beds 7,000 miles away in America.

Threads recounts the Richardsons’ journeyâ??the sorrow, joy and unbelievable answers to prayer that sustained them in their labors and drew their family into a story that only God could write.

Arlene Richardson is founder of HeartCraft, an organization that helps people in need by marketing products from small and medium-sized enterprises in the developing world. She is also involved in Pioneers, a mission organization with work in 95 countries. Arlene and her husband, Steve, who is the president of Pioneers-USA, have four daughters and live in Orlando, Florida.



How to Write Bylaws for a Non-profit Organization

by Richard Bivins

This guide was designed to help create a set of bylaws for a nonprofit organization in a way that allows the founder to remain in control of the nonprofit for as long as the founder chooses. It is not uncommon for a nonprofit’s board of directors to alter the vision of the founder and take the organization on a divergent path. Bylaws, in most jurisdictions, do not need to be filed along with the articles of incorporation. They are purposely drafted to become the internal playbook for the organization and describe with detail the function of every member, committee, and every office. This guide is short and to the point and will allow the founder to solidify a vision for the organization.

THE REAL POWER OF LINKEDIN: 7 Simple Steps to Get More Leads & Make Your Prospects BEG You

by Marty Koenig

For years I’ve heard LinkedIn was a good place to get business leads. I found some hints in the online tips, and I got a little insight from quite a few LinkedIn books I consumed. What I saw out there skimmed over the subject. But nobody wrote about the detail…exactly how to do it. It became clear that if I was going to leverage LinkedIn for leads, I was going to do it by trial and error. By brute force.

I took the high-level pointers I read during my research, added my knowledge of online marketing, used my love of LinkedIn, and threw in some experience with client relationship management. Then BOOM!…I made it work!

OK, it wasn’t quite a BOOM. I took the time and energy to figure it out so you don’t have to . What worked, and more importantly, what didn’t work. I journaled the experience along my fantastic journey towards getting more leads than I know what to do with.

Hear it from others:

– “Much more than what I expected and a ridiculous bargain for the quality of information and great breakdown of how to generate leads on LinkedIn.”

– “Excellent! Info is great. Exactly what I wanted. Highly recommended.”

This book covers the topic with much detail and explanation. You can implement it with my unique step by step “How To” approach. You don’t have to guess at any of it. That’s the GroupSync Method.

Have you ever read instruction manuals when putting something together like a cabinet, stand or desk? The pictures aren’t clear and the translation to English isn’t so professional. The steps aren’t clear. Oh, and let’s not forget the missing parts. So they make you guess.

Most people get frustrated with that situation. Those product companies seem like they simply don’t care about how their product makes me feel when considering their “How To” instructions.

You will see this book is clear, concise, informative and packed full of color screen shots, graphics and unique insight.

Enjoy!
