Start a successful business mid-life When you think of someone launching a start-up, the image of a twenty-something techie probably springs to mind. However, Gen Xers and Baby Boomers are just as likely to start businesses and reinvent themselves later in life. Never Too Old to Get Rich is an exciting road map for anyone age 50-plus looking to be their own boss and launch their dream business.
This book provides up-to-date resources and guidance for launching a business when you're fifty-plus. There are snappy profiles of more than a dozen successful older entrepreneurs, describing their inspirational journeys launching businesses and nonprofits. The author walks you through her three-part fitness program: guidelines for becoming financially fit, physically fit, and spiritually fit, before delving more deeply into how would-be entrepreneurs over fifty can succeed.

For the first time ever, this absolutely key text in management and organization studies is available on audio!
The Principles of Scientific Management by F.W. Taylor is a tremendously important book, the essence of which has had irreversible impact on the way we think about organized labour and management today. It is a product of many years of experimentation, uncertainty, and hard work, fused with thoroughly modernist ideals of a pedantic mind. This book is a culmination of Frederick Winslow Taylor's career as, perhaps, the most famous management consultant. It stands on the shoulders of his previous examinations of the wage system and the operational characteristics of machine tools. In it, he recounts the four principles of scientific management, compares them to what he considers the most developed form of non-scientific management, and gives a number of examples and anecdotes to illustrate how the former is superior to the latter in every way and circumstance. This new edition, and the audiobook, feature a historical introduction from the creator of the Talking About Organizations podcast, which links the work with the trends in the digital economy and algorithmic management.
