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.
