I’ve been blessed with a long and diverse career that’s included opportunities for leadership, lessons in instructional design, and exposure to a breadth of corporate cultures. When I can, I try to distill what I’ve learned into short books, with the hope that those can help others in some small way.
Where possible, I provide links to purchase books from Leanpub (which offers ebooks only, and returns more of the purchase price to the author) as well as Amazon (most books are in Kindle unlimited, and Amazon offers paperbacks as well).
Be the Master, 4th Edition, was a look at what “success” really means, and what it means to help yourself and others achieve that success. It’s an ode to paying back the debt you may not realize you owe. It’s message is, “wouldn’t you rather your life be measured by the lives you’ve helped?”
Let’s Talk Business was an employee’s guide to understanding the business world. It’s a plain-English look at things like P&L statements, why businesses behave the way they do, and more.
The book was retired in 2020, and much of the content and messaging rolled into Mastering Your Technology Career.
