My company HireNurture is running a book giveaway that I thought you might want to know about.
We’re giving 10 books away ($175 value) to a couple of lucky winners – on the topic of how to find and hire top talent.
Many of these are top selling or top rated books, including:
- The Alliance (co-authored by the founder of LinkedIn)
- Work Rules (written by Google’s Laszlo Bock)
- Drive (by NYT and WSJ bestselling author Dan Pink)

When people ask what my biggest strength is, it’s that I’m shameless. I will ask people for help even when I don’t know them. I email Marissa Mayer every year to get her to come speak to Girls Who Code. And she’s probably like, “Who is this woman?” But I don’t care. I think it’s important for her to be involved in the program, and I will keep emailing her.
A lot of entrepreneurs, I think, would benefit from studying someone like Jeff Bezos, who’s taken the mindset that everything needs to be written down into a Word document, six pages or less. It needs to be read. He actually has his board sit there quietly at the beginning of the board meetings and read it. He doesn’t know if they’ve read it in advance. Hopefully, there’s enough trust that you can actually get the materials out in advance and they can read it.
Another potential error that can be made while analyzing TAM is to fail to understand that the features and enhancements…may actual expand the market opportunity for the whole industry…by exploring new price points or enhancing convenience or usability.
…what is needed is not only people with a good background in a particular field, but also people capable of making a connection between item 1 and item 2 which might not ordinarily seem connected.
Gary runs an awesome program called Orbital 1k where he teaches you and a group of your peers to build and launch a revenue generating project.
I’m a big fan of anything that encourages people to take the first (and then the next, and the next) step in building something they can share with the world.
And that’s exactly what Orbital and Gary can help you do.
More details below…
…we received 33 applications to the Orbital 1K program and are thrilled with a disproportionately large number of them.
Given that we had only effectively promoted the program for 48 hours, we’re re-opening applications because we believe that there’s an even larger pool of prospective applicants out there. (Plus, we actually have the capacity to handle more.)
We also received a lot of feedback asking about a remote option, so we are going to try that, too.
So, if you or someone you love has an idea they would like to launch, where they would benefit from the constraints of the Orbital 1K program, please apply by Thursday, May 21!
It’s not your work history or your grades. It’s not how much industry experience you have. Nor it is whether you can solve brain teasers … The biggest predictor of whether you’ll succeed, Laszlo Bock outlines in ‘Work Rules!,’ is how you fare in a sample work test.
