Book: "The End of Jobs" by Taylor Pearson
The rapid development of technology and globalization has changed the leverage points in accumulating wealth: money, meaning and freedom. Those that don’t adapt are becoming trapped in the downward spiral of a dying middle class - working harder and earning less. Entrepreneurs that understand the new paradigm, have created unprecedented wealth in their lives and the lives of those they love.

The End of Jobs has been called one of the best entrepreneur books of 2015 and has remained #1 Bestseller in Business and Money, Small Business, Entrepreneurship and International Economics.

In This Book You’ll Learn:

— Why the century-long growth in wages came to a halt in 2000.

— Why MBAs and JDs can’t get jobs and what that means for the future of work and your job.

— Why The Theory of Constraints and a shift into the Fourth Economy has made entrepreneurship the highest-leveraged career path for the young and ambitious.

— Why The Turkey Problem means accounting may be the riskiest profession in the 21st century while entrepreneurship may be the safest.

— How entrepreneurs with second-rate degrees are leveraging the radical democracy of the Long Tail to get rich.

— How the Stair Step Method and return of apprenticeships have transformed the “entrepreneurial leap" to make entrepreneurship at large, and small business entrepreneurship in particular, more accessible than ever.

— The scientific research on how giving up balanced living and embracing integrated living leads to more money, more meaning, and more freedom.

— Why a 20th century world view to career search questions like “What career is right for me?” and “How do I find a career?” could be the source of your frustration (and a better way to think about it)  

This entertaining discussion will be facilitated by Chris Elmore with AvidXchange.
As a reminder, you don't have to read the book to attend! Most do not, and we always have a very engaging discussion!
During this roundtable we'll:

 · share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
 · share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
 · share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth
Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions for 2017, so please don¹t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you¹re passionate about and would like to share with the group.  The meetings take place the second Friday of every month. Thanks!
