Happiness, Health and Wealth?

Yet, 67% of Americans are overweight or obese – so much for health, only 39% of Americans are happy, and only 12%of workers really like their jobs.

Are you headed in the right direction? 


In our grade-focused school years, the rules of success seemed as simple as making all As. However, in the working world, success is far more complex. Now, a self-professed over-achiever shares how her professional triumphs wildly strayed from her honor roll tactics in an eye-opening, easy-to-read compilation of truisms from the trenches of real life. Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success: How to Prosper Without Being at the Top of the Class offers hard-won wisdom on achieving professional glory that will serve as an invaluable resource to anyone who is contemplating a career, or for parents who want to help their children lay the groundwork for success in the workplace. Weaving in illustrations and short poetry, this ingenious book delivers concepts that are easy to understand.
In today’s global, hypercompetitive marketplace, the rules for success have changed dramatically. Inspired by the experience of her own daughters in school and her work with entrepreneurs in start-ups, Cynthia realized that many young adults graduate completely unaware of a new playing field that no one has bothered to tell them about—and that is not always predicated by superior grades or talents. In eighteen concise and revelatory chapters, the author draws from her own professional achievements and challenges to debunk common myths that can lead astray aspiring professionals in their early years of forging a career. From the overemphasis of “practice makes perfect” to the often parroted insistence that winning doesn’t matter, Cynthia provides straight facts, anecdotes, and examples that will enable young adults, as well as their parents, to have the information they need to launch a career on solid footing.
Among the concepts that are included in Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success, readers will learn that
  • How can the average student be highly successful?
  • Can common beliefs you learn in school have a negative impact on your later success?
  • How does the game change once they hand you a diploma?
On page after page of this insightful roadmap to success, Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success: How to Prosper Without Being at the Top of The Class serves up a host of “aha!” moments that will forever change the way young hopefuls view the world ahead of them. Is it really true that good things come to those who wait? Is fitting in a fruitful goal? Is it enough to know what you want to become, or would it be more effective to actually set a plan in motion to achieve it? Inspiring and uplifting, this simply brilliant take on creating a career will help anyone realize their goals, avoid common pitfalls, and lay the groundwork through the secondary talents, skills, and mindset necessary for optimal success.
