DMM’s 1/20/17 Freebie Friday
Welcome to DMM’s 1/20/17 Freebie Friday! Today I’m cross-posting from my Love My Echo site with a post that features two Audible titles that are free for both Amazon’s US and UK customers, plus a third, bonus title that’s currently available to US customers only.
In a constantly changing, hyper-competitive world, leadership is more important than ever. Yet few people have what it takes to inspire, develop, and guide others. In this presentation, Robin Sharma shares the leadership lessons that he gives to clients such as Nike, Microsoft, and NASA. Runtime: 1 hour, 7 minutes.
Next is Recession Proof Graduate: How to Land the Job You Want by Doing Free Work (UK readers click here).
Recession-Proof Graduate is a wildly popular career guide that’s been downloaded over 150,000 times. This audiobook is frequently shared among students, teachers, parents, counselors, freelancers, and entrepreneurs. It’s been integrated in the coursework at a number of universities, given away as a graduation gift, and translated to Italian.
I struggled to find meaningful work – or any work – after getting out of school. I graduated in 2008 – during the worst economy in 80 years – and spent my days spamming my resume to hundreds of companies I didn’t want to work for…and never heard back. It was exhausting. When I changed my strategy, I landed a handful of dream gigs, got to work with amazing people like Tim Ferriss and Ramit Sethi, and found myself turning down multiple paid job offers. Best of all, I was getting paid to work on projects that made me come alive. It was a far cry from the days of begging for soul-crushing work. People kept asking how I did it, so I wrote this free guide on how to use free work to land your dream job.
Runtime: 42 minutes.
This last one is for Amazon US customers only, I’m afraid. A Conversation with Joseph Finder and Malcolm Gladwell.
Joseph Finder and Malcolm Gladwell are both best-selling authors who write about issues from the business world – one in fiction and the other in nonfiction. Listen to this insightful conversation between these authors as they discuss topics that range from the best qualities of CEOs and sales people, to the nature of genius, to how they do their research and the mechanics of writing, to the intricacies of interpreting facial micro-expressions.
Joseph Finder is the author of Paranoia, Company Man, and the upcoming Killer Instinct. His thrillers focus on characters who inhabit the cut-throat corporate world.
Malcolm Gladwell is the author of Blink and The Tipping Point. He writes on corporate culture as well as social habits. Killer Instinct will be available for download on May 16, 2006.
