If you were a company, who would you buy shares in you? How high is your stock in the market? Whatever your role, you need people to invest in you. Successful personal floatation, getting to market and winning, can and will happen when you:

  • know your network
  • know your market

Float You leads you through these steps, with no nonsense checks on your brand worth at every stage. Use the float you structure so that when you finally go to market, your personal share price will reach an all time high, and stay there.

Building Your Career Portfolio

Building Your Career Portfolio
By Carol A. Poore
ISBN 1-56414-540-9
P 1,250.00

How well are you building and investing your career assets? What kind of "return" are you enjoying for all your hard work? Will your career wealth enable you to fulfil your dreams and meet your goals? If most of us tried to "analyze" our careers using the same tools and techniques we apply to our investments, we'd probably be in for a rude awakening. Not only would we be sorely lacking in "assets" but we'd probably be getting a lousy "return" on the assets we had managed to build up! And career strategy? What career strategy?

In Building Your Career Portfolio, business and career strategist Carol A. Poore has created a ground breaking approach that is rewriting the rules of work. It clearly and effectively shows you how to build career wealth by developing a diversified "investment portfolio" of career assets that become valuable over time. Rather than putting all of your career eggs in one basket (a single job or business), you will discover how to:

  • Define and fulfill your unique personal purpose
  • Diversify career risk by selecting the right mix of career assets that align with your personal purpose
  • Create a new career and community opportunities throughout your lifetime.

By Guy Browning

P 1,829.50

The days of mass produced human beings are over. In the new economy you're on your own. You have more opportunities than ever, and you can choose what you want to do, how you want to do it and who you want to do it with.
But you also have to be more creative, more flexible and above all more likeable than ever before. You need to learn a vital and new skill - personal innovation. Personal innovation is the new skill to anyone who wants a future in business. It's about how to imagine, to create, to build teams, networks, relationships, fulfilling lives. Most of all it's about challenging and re-building the one thing you do have total control over, and that's you.

When you're in a game without rules everything is on fast forward, you need to listen, learn, adapt and attack. You need to rewire yourself to make sure you're ready to survive and thrive.

Innervation is your new economy, new lifestyles survival guide.
