Forever Employable: How to stop looking for work and let your next job find you

Forever Employable, my new book, is now available!

It's been 2 years since the start of this journey and ,finally, Forever Employable: How to stop looking for work and let your next job find you is available for sale on Amazon in print, Kindle and audio book.You should buy a copy and, after you've read it, write a review. I would be very grateful for that.

Hey folks -

After two years of work, I’m thrilled to announce that my 4th book,

is now available. Over the last 5 years I’ve been getting regular weekly questions about how I built the business I have today. People were asking about the consulting work, the speaking gigs and the book publishing deals. I wasn’t sure exactly how to tell that story so I waited for a while.

Along the way I show — with clear examples and case studies from my career and others’ — how you can use the concepts of agility, transformation and product thinking in ways that help you build recognized expertise and continuously improve the opportunities the end up finding you.
