Do you feel the pull to start your own business?
Tired of working for others and dealing with office politics, eager for control and more money, Ed ''Skip'' McLaughlin certainly felt it. When he left his high-level corporate position to start not one but two new businesses, his colleagues' reaction was disbelief:
People told me I was crazy. ''You are going to fail!''
One of his businesses did fail, but the other thrived. Ed bootstrapped it into an Inc. 500 company and later sold it to a Fortune 100 company. Now, you can learn from his experience - what to do and what not to do - to create your own successful startup. The Purpose Is Profit eliminates the mystery of becoming an entrepreneur. You will learn:
- Why distinctive competence trumps passion
- Where and when to get funding without losing control
- How to build an entrepreneurial brand that lasts
- Why profit should be factored into every business decision
- How ethical behavior breeds trust and unlocks profit
As a bonus, The Purpose Is Profit includes two manuals:
- The Startup Roadmap details the 21 steps you should take to build a profitable business.
- The Startup Funding Guide delivers the tools you need to fund your business.

The essential guide for business leaders, entrepreneurs, and employees looking to navigate today's multigenerational workplace, which spans more generations than ever before.
Millennials have only just begun their reign as the largest generation in the workplace. But they are not alone. For the next decade at least, these young professionals will be working side by side with more established generations, including the baby boomers, who are working longer than ever, and an entirely new group coming up, generation Z.
This means within any organization, any team, any meeting, any marketing opportunity, you may find any combination of generations. Each of these age groups has its own attitude, expectations, and professional style. To lead and succeed in any organization today, you must adapt to how millennials work while continuing to accommodate their older colleagues and paying attention to the next generations coming up. The Remix shows you how to adapt and win through proven strategies that serve all generations' needs.
As the leading expert on generations in the workplace, Lindsey Pollak combines the most recent data from a variety of authoritative sources with her own original research as well as detailed case studies from her Fortune 500 clients. Pollak outlines the ways businesses, executives, midlevel managers, employees, and entrepreneurs can handle situations that may arise when diverse styles clash and provides clear strategies to turn generational diversity into business opportunity.
Generational change is impacting all industries, all types of organizations, and all leaders. The Remix is an essential listen for anyone who wants to survive and thrive today and into the future.

You have likely heard stories from friends, family members, and colleagues who quit a job because of a toxic person - an individual who belittles, shames, humiliates, or bullies. You may not have realized that these individuals not only take their tolls on our emotional psyches, but also the financial outcomes of their organizations. Through this book's many case examples, as well as evidence-based practices and templates, each chapter singles out one main issue and how to resolve it with respect and clarity.
Dr. Kusy presents concrete practices that will restore civility and respect into your organization. Some of these practices include:
- Calculating the real financial cost of toxic people in your organization
- Providing direct and respectful feedback to a toxic peer, direct report, and even your boss
- Replacing traditional exit interviews with a method for dealing with toxic chameleons who "knock down and kiss up"
- Hiring, engaging talent, and even firing people based on a new approach to values-based performance management
You will emerge with a newfound understanding that restores personal well-being and increased financial performance.
