Is Age of Agility Right for YOU?
As I am tying up loose ends and getting ready for Age of Agility to be released, I decided to write a short piece about who this book is for to add before the introduction to the book. What do you think? Is Age of Agility right for you?
Who Should Read This Book
Before you click the shopping cart button in your web browser or make your way up to the cash register at one of the few remaining bookstores hanging around your neighborhood (thank you for supporting your local booksellers), let me pause you where you are while you still have your money safely in your pocket. Before your money gets put into my pocket, I want you to know what you are getting yourself into.
Every day, young people continue to impress me with their drive, work ethic, and imagination. For some reason, a majority of Gen X-er and Baby Boomer authors haven’t figured us out yet. Looking for a good book on developing business skills in the “Motivational Management & Leadership” on Amazon is like searching through a laundry list of old “dad” stories retold by a bunch of Q-Tips (white hair with white socks at the senior lunch special). Millennials and post-Millennials are at a loss for books that speak directly to them. And that’s why I, a fellow Millennial, wrote this book with our generation in mind.
This book addresses the learning gap between recent graduates and the workplace. If you are a recent college graduate looking to enter the workforce, I wrote this book for you.
If you are confident, motivated, love a challenge, and can’t sit behind a desk for another year (or four years), this book is for you.
In order to keep up with the fast-paced world of business and technology, the next generation of workers needs a new kind of education. I wrote this book for people looking to enter an apprenticeship program, for businesses who already have an apprenticeship program and are looking for some guidance, and for those companies who are thinking about creating an apprenticeship program.
Finally, this book is for my peers who are displaced workers, underemployed, or sick and tired of their job(s). If I didn’t have the influence of some great mentors in my life (some Q-Tips worth listening to), I would still be working next to you in West Michigan, running between two or more part-time jobs, angry, frustrated, and tired. Since you would have shared it with me, I am now sharing it with you.
If any of that sounds like it is up your alley, I would be honored if you bought my book.
