This book is a well-researched rallying call to reverse the down
This book is a well-researched rallying call to reverse the downward-trending career impact of millions of Americans.
I perform career coaching for over 500 successful young professionals in New York City every year (who excel at impressive firms such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, McKinsey & Co, Deloitte, and Google). And so very many of these high performers state that they are unhappy with their "prestigious" jobs, express the desperation to create something of their own and make a difference, but confess hopelessness around where to start.
This book details how author Andrew Yang and his non-profit Venture for America are actualizing a bold and broad-spectrum solution: a entrepreneurial career ecosystem that ensures our nation's best and brightest are working towards keeping America the vanguard of innovation. The book showcases dozens of real-world examples of college grads who have "taken the road less traveled by" and are transformed as a result.
The book also details how Yang and his non-profit are partnering with private enterprise to restore to greatness America's "transitioning" cities of Detroit, New Orleans, Baltimore, Providence, Cleveland, Philadelphia, downtown Las Vegas, and more.
Lastly, the book provides a well-documented summary of all of the major private, corporate, academic and government supporters who are tag-teaming this effort with Yang around the country -- it's such an impressive coterie of powerful players that it tempts and invites readers to consider Yang's vision jump onto the Venture For America rocket ship.
A captivating read.
