Impossible Goals, Inevitable Successes

Why are you struggling to grow your business when everyone else seems to be crushing their goals? If you needed to triple revenue within the next three years, would you know exactly how to do it? Doubling the size of your business, tripling it, even growing ten times larger isn’t about magic. It’s not about privileges, luck, or working harder. There’s a template that the world’s fastest growing companies follow to achieve and sustain much, much faster growth.

From Impossible to Inevitable details the hypergrowth playbook of companies like the record-breaking Zenefits (which skyrocketed from $1 million to $100 million in two years), Salesforce.com (the fastest growing multibillion dollar software company), and EchoSign—aka Adobe Document Services—(which catapulted from $0 to $144 million in seven years). Whether you have a $1 billion or a $100,000 business, you can use the same insights as these notable companies to learn what it really takes to break your own revenue records. For instance, one of the authors shows how he grew his income from $67,000 to $720,000 in four years while maintaining a 20-30 hour work week and welcoming a new child—nine times.

This book shows you how to surpass plateaus and get off of the up-and-down revenue rollercoaster by answering three questions about growing revenue to tens times its size:

  1. Why aren’t you growing faster?
  2. What does it take to get to hypergrowth?
  3. How do you sustain growth?

This powerful, effective book provides a template for you to kick off your biggest growth spurt yet. This template includes The 7 Ingredients Of Hypergrowth:

  1. You’re not ready to grow until you Nail a Niche.
  2. Overnight success is a fairy tale. You’re not going to be magically discovered. You need sustainable systems that Create Predictable Pipeline.
  3. Growth exposes your weaknesses and it will cause more problems than it solves—until you Make Sales Scalable.
  4. It’s hard to build a big business out of small deals. Figure out how to Double Your Dealsize.
  5. It’ll take years longer than you want, but don’t quit too soon. Make sure you can Do the Time.
  6. Your people are renting, not owning their jobs. Develop a culture of initiative, not adequacy by Embracing Employee Ownership.
  7. Employees, you are too accepting of “reality” and too eager to quit. You can Define Your Destiny to make a difference, for yourself and your company, no matter what you do or where you work.

The authors take each ingredient and break it down into specific steps to guide you through implementation. From Impossible to Inevitable helps you take impossible goals and turn them into inevitable successes for your business and team. You will achieve success even bigger than you can imagine from where you’re sitting today.

Critics of State Education: A Reader

Aaron Ross Powell

Best price for this book: $ 8.91

Buy
The relation between school and state in American liberal thought has a checkered past. Many traditional heroes of American individualism, such as Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson, upheld some role for government in education. Others, however, feared the consequences of placing control of education in the hands of a single group and supported the separation of school and state. The preservation of individual freedom, according to those who were against state education, is the only legitimate function of government.

Critics of State Education: A Reader contains articles, written during the 18th and 19th centuries, that oppose all state inference in the education of children, whether in the form of tax support for schools, compulsory attendance laws, mandated curricula, and so forth. Many of the writers included here are virtually unknown even to historians of education, and most of their articles are reprinted for the first time

Arguments for Liberty

Best price for this book: $ 5.32

Buy

What's the best political system? What standards should we use to decide, and why? Arguments for Liberty is a guide to thinking about these questions. Two schools of thought have long dominated libertarian discussions about ethics: utilitarianism and natural rights. Those two theories are important, but they're not the only ways people think about ethics and political philosophy. In Arguments for Liberty, you'll find a broader approach to libertarianism.

In each of Arguments for Liberty's nine chapters a different political philosopher discusses how his or her preferred school of thought judges political institutions and why libertarianism best meets that standard. Though they end up in the same place, the paths they take diverge in fascinating ways. Readers will find in these pages not only an excellent introduction to libertarianism, but also a primer on some of the most important political and ethical theories.


Individualism: A Reader

Best price for this book: $ 6.75

Buy
Individualism is one of most criticized and least understood ideas in social and political thought. Is individualism the ability to act independently amidst a web of social forces? A vital element of personal liberty and a shield against conformity? Does it lead to or away from unifying individuals with communities?
Individualism: A Reader provides a wealth of illuminating essays from the 17th to the early 20th centuries. In 26 selections from 25 writers individualism is explained and defended, often from unusual perspectives. This anthology includes not only selections from well-known writers, but also many lesser-known pieces--reprinted here for the first time--by philosophers, social theorists, and economists who have been overlooked in standard accounts of individualism.
The depth and complexity of ideas about individualism are reflected in the six sections in this collection. The first examines individuality generally, with the following five detailing social, moral, political, religious, and economic individualism. Throughout, individualism is analyzed and defended through the lenses of classical liberalism, free-market libertarianism, individual anarchism, voluntary socialism, religious individualism, abolitionism, free thought, and radical feminism.
Both richly historical and sharply contemporary, Individualism: A Reader provides a multitude of perspectives and insights on personal liberty and the history of freedom.

Chasing Grace: What the Quarter Mile Has Taught Me about God and Life

Sanya Richards-Ross

Best price for this book: $ 7.86

Buy

“For as long as I can remember, life has been measured in seconds. The fewer, the better.”

Most people equate success with having more, but Sanya’s quest was always for less. She started running track as a little girl in Jamaica and began competing when she was only seven. At 31 she’s had a career’s worth of conditioning to run a 400-meter race in 50 seconds, hopefully 49, or even better, 48.

When she started training with her coach, Clyde Hart, they divided her race into four phases: push, pace, position, poise, and with the inherent prayer. For years Sanya worked to hone every phase in practice so that when it came time to race, her body would respond as her mind instinctively transitioned from one phase to the next. As she got older and embraced a life that measures more than just a number on the time clock, she has realized the genius of this strategy for not just racing the 400 meters, but for living her best life.

Sanya shares triumphant as well as heartbreaking stories as she reveals her journey to becoming a world-class runner. From her childhood in Jamaica to Athens, Beijing and London Olympics, readers will find themselves inspired by the unique insights she’s gained through her victories and losses, including her devastating injury during the 2016 Olympic Trials forcing career retirement just weeks before Rio. Sanya demonstrates how even this devastating loss brought her closer to the ultimate goal of becoming all God created her to be.

”Sometimes you think you are chasing a gold medal, but that’s not what you are chasing. You’re racing to become the best version of yourself.”

Hipercrescimento: Venda 10 Vezes Mais com o Modelo Salesforce (Portuguese Edition)

Aaron Ross

Best price for this book: $ 0

Buy
"Nunca foi tão fácil promover o crescimento de uma empresa". Assim Aaron Ross e Jason Lemkin iniciam este livro, cuja proposta principal é mostrar como um negócio pode sair da estagnação e ter um crescimento exponencial – até 10 vezes mais! Os autores propõem, primeiramente, um diagnóstico das razões pelas quais a empresa não cresce mais rápido e, em seguida, sugerem ações para atingir o hipercrescimento e, então, mantê-lo. Os sete ingredientes do hipercrescimento são:
(1) garantir um nicho;
(2) criar um pipeline previsível;
(3) fazer vendas escaláveis;
(4) dobrar o tamanho das transações;
(5) entender que os prazos muitas vezes são maiores do que os previstos;
(6) reforçar o ownership (senso de propriedade) dos colaboradores;
(7) usar as frustrações para decidir o futuro.

Além das histórias da multibilionária companhia de software Salesforce e da Acquia, que foi eleita a empresa de software de capital fechado de mais rápido crescimento em 2013, a metodologia de Ross e Lemkin é ilustrada pelos cases de Zenefits, que aumentou sua receita de US$ 1 milhão para US$ 100 milhões em cerca de dois anos; EchoSign (Adobe Document Services), que cresceu de US$ 0 a US$ 144 milhões em sete anos; HubSpot, que viu sua receita crescer acima de US$ 100 e foi avaliada em mais de US$ 1 bilhão; e Avanoo, que cresceu de US$ 1,3 mil a US$ 5 milhões em cerca de um ano, no mais do que saturado mercado de treinamento corporativo.
