UNDERDOG THINKING: A Bold Idea, a Business Adventure and 101 Lessons Learned Along the Way by Atul Vir 4.6 Stars (17 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

Underdog Thinking is real-life business adventure story that follows the journey of an Indian Immigrant to the U.S. who was told he "didn't know a damn thing about American business." But as opportunity would have it, a short time later he found himself an accidental entrepreneur with a front row ticket to the ins and outs of launching and growing a business. He was flying high on his growing success -- until a fateful moment when everything changed. As businesses rise and fall to the tune of supply and demand, sometimes the harshest betrayals come out of nowhere, when you least expect it -- as do the surprising sparks of hope. When an unforeseen circumstance initiates a chain of events that leave him at a crossroads he must make the tough call: to give in and give up, or push through and win. CEO, business ethics thought leader, speaker and author Atul Vir has lived that story. And even in the darkest moments when failure seemed most imminent, he drew on the work ethic instilled from his earliest days, and his commitment to do right by his customers -- to bring his dream up from the ashes and back to life. In his new book, Underdog Thinking, Vir inspires readers to face any challenge that comes their way -- with practical business lessons for every step of the journey gleaned from his experience as both an immigrant building a business and as CEO of Equator Appliances for more than 25 years. The book dives into current themes dominating the business landscape, including: global business, overcoming failure, bootstrapping, securing financing, immigration and what innovation truly means. While many people offer sage advice on these topics, Vir's lessons are paired with a unique, captivating story and more than two decades of entrepreneurial expertise in an industry dominated by much bigger players -- major multinational corporations.

Breaking Into YOUR Silicon Valley: How To Land Your First Job Anywhere In The World Without Prior Experience by Irwin Ki (MIK Ventures, LLC) 4.9 Stars (21 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

Are you ready for career disruption? Have you ever wanted to work at Google, Facebook, Amazon, or a hot tech startup? But never tried due to the belief of needing coding experience, an Ivy League education, or think you'd have to move the West Coast. That's what I thought... I've watched a whole generation get brainwashed by thinking of starting their own business is the ONLY way to get rich. In reality, 1 in 4 millionaires has worked "Gateway Jobs" inside of a company before building their fortunes. I even got caught up in it, and did the cliche "quit my job and become an entrepreneur." My most successful business venture profited about $72,000... but that took about 7 years to realize. Divided out by 7 years that would put my income below the poverty level! HOORAY STARTING A BUSINESS! ? (insert sarcasm) Feeling like a failure, I decided to get a "job" to support myself. I had no real skills, so I got a "Gateway Job" as a Sales Development Representative (a fancy title for "meeting setter"), but by doing this I got mentorship, sales training, and shockingly made over $100,000 in my first year. This "Gateway Job" taught me far more than my business ever did (not to mention paid me far more). This opened my eyes into this highly-paid, highly-in-demand world of technology. I watched these technology "Gateway Jobs" rocket people from: -Austin started as a marketing intern at Uber, now she's on the executive team of a $70billion company. -Jim went from a customer support rep wearing a phone headset all day, to moving up the company ladder, to getting a juicy exit when the company IPO'd. -Karina went from Macy's retail, moved up to sales development, and now has a six-figure a year job as a senior renewals account manager. By the end of this book you will have a solid idea of which of the 38 "Gateway Job" will be the best way to break into (and have a successful & lucrative career) in departments such as marketing, sales, finance, operations, IT, legal, ...
