An economy where most people work for the state or a global corporation is an economy that has lost its knowledge of the key entrepreneurial building blocks.
In The Decline of Small Business and the Middle Class, you wrote:
Thank you, Kevin, for describing the process of learning entrepreneurial life-skills.In a neofeudal economy dominated by the government-corporate partnership, the erosion of small business goes hand in hand with an erosion of building-block skills, opportunities to learn these essential life-skills, and the cultural knowledge of how to start and operate an independent enterprise.
Get a Job, Build a Real Career and Defy a Bewildering Economy(Kindle, $9.95)(print, $20)
Are you like me? Ever since my first summer job decades ago, I've been chasing financial security. Not win-the-lottery, Bill Gates riches (although it would be nice!), but simply a feeling of financial control. I want my financial worries to if not disappear at least be manageable and comprehensible.
And like most of you, the way I've moved toward my goal has always hinged not just on having a job but a career.
You don't have to be a financial blogger to know that "having a job" and "having a career" do not mean the same thing today as they did when I first started swinging a hammer for a paycheck.
Even the basic concept "getting a job" has changed so radically that jobs--getting and keeping them, and the perceived lack of them--is the number one financial topic among friends, family and for that matter, complete strangers.
So I sat down and wrote this book: Get a Job, Build a Real Career and Defy a Bewildering Economy.
It details everything I've verified about employment and the economy, and lays out an action plan to get you employed.
I am proud of this book. It is the culmination of both my practical work experiences and my financial analysis, and it is a useful, practical, and clarifying read.
