Brokenomics : 50 ways to live the dream on a dime / Dina Gachman.
So all your friends are working spiffy jobs, making beautiful babies (or thinking about it), inviting you to fabulous parties, and all you're making is this month's rent. (Barely.) In Brokenomics: 50 Ways to Live the Dream on a Dime, author Dina Gachman shares the lessons she's learned about how to live large in the cheap seats. Through stories both painfully honest and laugh-out-loud funny that any hardworking stiff can relate to, Dina reveals all the tricks you need to live the good life without spending a ton of money. Brokenomics covers the place where economics and everyday life collide. It includes: Tips on how to save without skimping on your daily latte Rules for changing your mindset (There Will Always Be Someone Richer, Taller, Smarter, and Better Looking Than You) Wisdom on making big decisions, like raising children-or not (Why Have a Baby When You Can Just Get a Nice Potted Plant?) Clear-eyed relationship advice (Do Not Date Anyone Who Loves Their Bong More Than They Love You) Strategies for talking to your honey about money ... without breaking up This helpful and hilarious handbook has the answers for crafting your own version of the glamorous life without breaking the bank. Dina shares advice on every page while keeping things fresh, light, and fun. Written with the wisdom afforded by a bit of hindsight, Brokenomics will appeal to recent college grads, newly committed couples, and those facing career crises all alike. Dina teaches that balancing stress and fun is vital, and that living on the cheap doesn't have to mean giving up on the little luxuries that make us happy. The key to Brokenomics is knowing that a sense of humor and a little bit of perspective are worth more than a million dollars. --


Entrepreneurship for the rest of us : how to create innovation and opportunity everywhere / Paul B. Brown.
Entrepreneurship for the rest of us : how to create innovation and opportunity everywhere / Paul B. Brown.
Today when the competition, technology, and the economy are evolving faster than ever before, organizations and the people like us who work in them need a proven approach to help us adapt-and succeed. The key, according to Paul B. Brown, is to think like an entrepreneur, no matter what your position or industry. What works for the most successful entrepreneurs will work for us, Brown argues, whether we want to stay employed working for someone else or are thinking of going off on our own. Based on extensive research, Entrepreneurship for the Rest of Us reveals the best practices of the most successful entrepreneurs, those who are adept at continually innovating and seeing opportunity where others do not. They do that by following a rigid approach. For example: They never start with a new idea, but by trying to solve a market need. Financing is an afterthought. They get started with the resources at hand (not only does that allow them to move quickly, if things don't work out, they are not out much). Perfect is the enemy of good, it is much more important to get out into the marketplace with a prototype than to keep fiddling with what you have. In short, the entrepreneurial mindset is a protection against economic uncertainty, and Brown's goal is to spread that thinking to individuals and large organizations alike. Though of course we won't all start or run our own companies, we need to learn to think like entrepreneurs so that when uncertainty hits, as it will again and again, individuals and companies will be better prepared to not only survive but win--
