Overview

It's time to rethink how you do your job, Seth Godin believes. Instead of working to become a better cog in the company machine, learn how to become a "linchpin" - the vital piece of hardware which holds the wheel onto the axle.. If you want a job where you are treated as indispensable, given massive amounts of responsibility and freedom, expected to expend emotional labor, and rewarded for being a human . . . then . . . it's time to stop complying with the system and draw your own map."

Godin has great authority on which to base his theory: he founded and served as CEO of Yoyodyne, which was acquired by Yahoo! When he became vice president of direct marketing at Yahoo!. In Linchpin, he gives the reader guidelines on networking, how to use emotion to elevate your work, and how to share your work ("real artists ship", as Steve Jobs famously said). Don't surrender at the first sign of trouble: if you fail, at least you'll fail forward. He also provides 7 abilities linchpins have, such as providing a unique interface, and inspiring others.

In today's economic times, every employee must learn how to be a linchpin. Seth Godin's ideas are invigorating and valuable.

Great content, but be aware that this is just the SUMMARY of the actual book. A much better investment would be getting the real deal.

As another reviewer said, this is only a summary. This summary is making money off the unsuspecting ebook buyer who failed to read the entire description.

Ibwanted the summary as i have the audio book. The formatting of this book is horrible. Words that run together (no space between the words). I want a refund now!

The book that has helped numerous people all over the world escape from the mundane work cycle has now been summarized and boiled down to the most important information for those readers who are on the go. For those who read The Experiments in Lifestyle Design blog, this summary is a wonderful expansion on the ideas of the blog and includes even more tricks and tools to help you become successful. I highly recommend this summation of Ferriss’ book to anyone who wants to find success and wealth in their job but is not sure how to make it happen, because this concise explanation gives you everything you need.

Hey everyone! Welcome to my Fairy Tail rp! Ok so here are a couple of rules:<br> <p> 1) You must have a bio at least 2 weeks after you start roleplaying.<br> 2) Please don't overdue it on the Dragon Slayers!! Having too many just takes the fun out of it. Expand your horizons and use Card Magic or Solid Script!<br> 3) Please don't use characters of all one element. For example: having 20 lightning wizards and only 2 water ones.<br> 4) Don't pile onto Fairy Tail! Join some of the other Guilds!<br> 5) Please keep cussing to a minimum.<br> <p> And that's basically it! Oh, and here's the map:<br> <p> Res 1: Introduction/Rules<br> Res 2: Bios<br> Res 3: Fairy Tail Guild Hall<br> Res 4: Lamia Scale Guild Hall<br> Res 5: Blue Pegasus Guild Hall<br> Res 6: Mermaid Heel Guild Hall<br> Res 7: Sabertooth Guild Hall<br> Res 8: Raven Tail Guild Hall<br> Res 9: Hargeon<br> Res 10: Forest<br> Res 11: Girls' Dormhouse<br> Res 12: Boys' Dormhouse<br> Res 13+: Other Locations<br> <p> Now before I go, I have one more thing: Your bio should include Name, Age, Guild, Rank (S-Class, A-Class, B-Class, C-Class, no instant S-Class unless you have a legitament story to back it up), Guild Mark Location, Magic Type, and Bio. All else is optional. Well, I hope you enjoy rping here! Please advertise!!!<br> <p> ~Hana, April, and Liberty

Spend time with you family and friends. Don't waste your time reading this nonsense. This is nothing but a big waste of time. Gary Vaynerchuk has not captured anyone with a brain's attention. You would have to be clueless to find anyhting he says as interesting. He simply worked at his Dad's wine shop and his Dad poured a lot of money to expand it and have someone build a website. They spent a lot of money promoting the business... simply put... they spent money to make money. Gary specializes in self promotion... nothing else. He is nothing more than a salesman and not a good one at that. He has since left his Dad's wine business because he didn't have the passion for it. A lot of people in the wine business were calling for his head due to the conflict of interest of he rating wine that he sells. He is now trying to act as a social media expert by trying to teach the fundamentals to businesses. He'll be back to the wine trade because I can't imagine anyone paying him to teach such elementary concepts. But heck, they say a fool is born every minute so maybe he can fool them. We'll see. This book is something to be missed... don't waste your time.
