Stop trying to beat everyone else. True success is playing by your own rules, creating work that no one can replicate. Don’t be the best, be the only. You’re on the conventional path, checking off accomplishments. You might be doing okay by normal standards, but you still feel restless, bored, and limited. Srinivas Rao gets it. As a new business school graduate, Srinivas’s dreams were crushed by a soulless job that demanded only conformity. Sick of struggling to keep his head above water, Srinivas quit his job and took to the waves, pursuing his dream of learning to surf. He also found the freedom to chart his own course. Interviewing more than five hundred creative people on his Unmistakable Creative podcast was the ultimate education. He heard how guests including Seth Godin, Elle Luna, Tim Ferriss, Simon Sinek, and Danielle LaPorte blazed their own trails. Srinivas blends his own story with theirs to tell you: You can find that courage too. Don’t be just one among many—be the only. Be unmistakable. Trying to be the best will chain you to others’ definition of success. Unmistakable work, on the other hand, could only have been created by one person, so competition is irrelevant. Like Banksy’s art or Tim Burton’s films, unmistakable work needs no signature and has no precedent. Whether you’re a business owner, an artist, or just someone who wants to leave your mark on the world, Unmistakable will inspire you to create your own path and define your own success.

The creator of the Unmistakable Creative podcast makes a counterintuitive argument: By focusing your creative work on pleasing yourself, you can increase your productivity, happiness, and (eventually, paradoxically) the size of your audience. Creating for your own pleasure--whether you're writing a novel, composing songs, or painting a landscape--can seem pointless. It's tempting to focus on pursuing money and fame, rather than the process itself. But as Srini Rao warns, creating then turns into a chore that can harm your self-esteem and suck the pleasure out of life, rather than being a source of joy. Rao, host of the podcast The Unmistakable Creative, argues that we should counter this thinking by intentionally creating art for ourselves alone--an audience of one. In this book he shares the fascinating true stories of creatives who took this path, along with actionable tips and the research of creativity experts. You'll learn, for example: * How Oprah's intentional focus on her own work rather than the opinions of everyone else catapulted her into one of the most popular talk shows of all time. * How being process-driven can not only help you produce more work, but can make you happier outside of your creative time. * How to put together a creative "team of rivals" whose feedback can help you hone your craft and filter out useless feedback. By playing to an audience of one, we can find more happiness, increased productivity, and a greater sense of community.

Many of today's business leaders champion learning as essential to business success, backing their belief with massive investments in Training and Development (T&D). In fact, T&D investments reach $56 billion per year in the U.S. alone. In this era of unprecedented opportunity, the time is right for T&D to become a full-fledged "player" in the world of business. At issue, the authors contend, is T&D's inability to seize this opportunity and deliver unmistakable value to its most influential customers-the exectuvies who pay for trainiing services but are unable to see clear business value being returned on their companies' training investments. The authors also contend that T&D must alter the traditional precepts that keep it "separate form the business" and "out of the loop" strategically. Van Adelsberg and Trolley suggest that the key to delivering unmistakable business value lies in transforming T&D-in spirit and in practice-from a funciton to a business. The authors draw on their experiences working inside Moore Corporation, DuPont, Mellon Bank, Kaiser Permanente, Texas Instruments, and other top businesses to illustrate how "Running Training Like a Business": 1. Eliminates the many hidden costs of training; 2. Re-focuses T&D from delivering training content to addressing business issues; 3. Makes T&D a full stategic partner in business decision making; 4. Ensures that training measurement is "baked in, not bolted on"; 5. Improves the effectiveness and efficiency of internal and/or external T&D organizations. Trolley and van Adelsberg lead the reader through a proven four-step process for transforming traditional training organizations into training enterprises capable of delivering unmistakable value, quarter after quarter and year after year.

Break Free From Ordinary Business Leadership HOW DO YOU LEAD YOUR BUSINESS? No two companies operate the same way and neither should their styles of leadership. Unfortunately, many corporations use the same leadership methodologies and are afraid of deviating from the status quo. Business partners MICHAEL D. NOVAKOSKI and JOHN M. PARKER of Elzinga & Volkers, a Michigan-based construction company, believed a different way was possible. In their book, Become Unmistakable: Start the Journey from Commodity to Oddity, Novakoski and Parker examine how business leaders can tap into their "right-brained leadership" to foster a creative and employee-centric culture. This book will show you how changing your leadership perspective and moving away from the commodity mindset can reap immeasurable benefits to your business.

Kym Gold’s mantra “never settle for a no, always look for a yes” is what led her to co-create True Religion Brand Jeans, a major retail clothing company which she sold for close to a billion dollars in 2013. In Gold Standard, she finally gives her side of the story of how the once fledgling jeans company that nobody wanted, went on to become a giant, revolutionizing player in the fashion industry. As having to constantly arm herself in the “boys club” world of the fickle fashion business, Kym went from being one of True Religion’s majority shareholders, and their lead female clothing designer, to being both served divorce papers by her partner, and having her company ripped from under her, within an hour, on Valentine’s Day in 2007. Since then she has climbed back up the ladder and catapulted into the coveted 1% of the richest Americans. In Gold Standard, Kym’s savvy business and fashion branding experience of thirty years gives a behind the scenes look into the always changing fashion industry. It also mixes in her compelling personal journey, a compassionate view for women under the pressures of holding together a career, finances, family and trying to balance it all. Kym motivates readers to throw the gold gloves on and put up a fight.

How to Tell if a Man Wants You for a Lifetime or Only for the Moment Men don''t really have "commitment issues." At least, not in the way most women think men do. When a man tells you he has "commitment issues", there''s a good chance that what he REALLY means is he''s not that interested in you and is just using you to pass time with until he meets someone "better." When a man isn''t interested in a relationship with you, his "commitment issues" are nothing more than an excuse to waste your time and reap the benefits of your decision to stay with him in order to "see where this thing goes." It''s at this point where many women make one of the worse dating decisions possible, as they choose to remain with a half-interested man, hoping that over time they''ll be able to "lull" him into a serious commitment. The Biggest Reason Why Men Pull Away and Suddenly Lose Interest Women often wonder why men pull away and lose interest in a blossoming romance without so much as a warning. Though there could be a ton of reasons why a man might pull away, the most common reason for his loss of interest is this: he wasn''t THAT interested in you to begin with. In general, even though men are more than able to commit to a woman once certain conditions in their life are met, they will not directly inform you when you''re not the right girl for them or that now isn''t the right time for them to take a woman seriously. And because men are far more opportunistic when it comes to dating, a lot of guys won''t hesitate to take advantage of a dating situation that reaps high rewards with as little effort possible. How to Avoid Dating Men Who Will Keep You Unloved and Perpetually Unclaimed No matter which way you look at it, even though men don''t really have commitment issues, they don''t find it necessary or in their best interest to inform a woman when she''s nothing more than a beautiful distraction, a way to earn the respect of his peers, or just a target to sharpen his seduction skills so that he''ll be primed and ready when a "better" woman comes along. This is the ugly truth, but there''s hope. In this book, you''ll get an inside look at how a man thinks and interacts with a woman when he''s not that interested in her. This sort of male behavior is actually easy to spot IF you know what to look for. It''s extremely difficult for a man to waste your time and treat you like a short-term plaything without exhibiting certain unmistakable behaviors that clearly communicate that he''s trying to keep you interested...but unclaimed. Here''s what you''re going to learn inside: The seductive language men use when they want to discourage you from wanting a COMMITTED relationship. How quickly learning this ONE thing about him can tell you if he''s "unequipped" to handle a serious relationship. The pattern in a man''s dating history that IMMEDIATELY reveals if he''s a commitment-phobic time waster. How to avoid being confused by men who might love you tenderly, but would NEVER make you their girlfriend. How to stop losing sleep wondering "DOES HE LIKE ME?" and get him to either take you seriously or take a hike! How observing this simple behavior reveals if he thinks you''re "THE ONE" or just "Some One" to pass time with until he finds his Ms. Right. The relationship red flags for recognizing a DEAD ON ARRIVAL romance so you don''t end up wasting your time. How to tell if a man is still secretly IN LOVE with his ex and is only one sad love song away from abandoning YOU for HER. And much, much more... Would You Like to Know More? Get started right away and discover how to tell if a man desperately wants you or if he''s just not that into you. Scroll to the top of the page and select the ''buy button'' now.
