The Start-Up of You: Entrepreneurial Strategies for Navigating the New Realities of Your Career

Open Discussion on the Book Written by Reid Hoffman with Ben Casnocha

Tuesday evening 02.21.12 at 7

Greetings All,

Prior to publication we discussed this book by LinkedIn co-founder and CEO Reid Hoffman. We based our August 16, 2011 discussion upon an interview by Thomas Friedman. “The Start-Up of You” book is now out and it is infinitely cosmic and incalculably multidimensional.  Reid illuminates the new realities for the career realm and for where the responsibility lies like no one else has. You may not like it but he lays it out.

Reid Hoffman is a genius that has proven his magnitude and worth numerous times over and in numerous ways.  His fingerprints are on such entities as LinkedIn, PayPal, Facebook, Zynga, Mozilla, Greylock Partners, and many others. Mr. Reid is a venture capitalist, angel investor, and philanthropist that makes a difference.  If you want to truly understand the mind that conceived and drives LinkedIn you will find a way to read this book.

Our $timulus discussion for Tuesday evening will have but one primary question. That question was posed on a Highway 101 billboard back in 2009 asking the pithy question:

“A million people could do your job. What makes you special?” ~ Hwy 101 Billboard
