#1 Bestseller in Startups, Home-Based Entrepreneurship, Small-business Marketing, and Personal Success

Discover the 16 keys to success for entrepreneurs starting a small business.

What is the “Entrepreneur’s Paradox”? Author Curtis Morley coined a term that identifies the 16 pitfalls that many entrepreneurs fall into. He calls it the “Entrepreneur’s Paradox”. Morley is an educator, thought leader, patent holder, and innovator. He is also a 5x Entrepreneur (achieving $5 in revenue for every dollar spent on marketing, advertising, sales, and any other growth expenses) who has actually produced 10x startup results. Morley explains that the exact qualities that aid an individual in founding a startup company (brilliance and expertise) are what prevent them from realizing expected success. What starts out as freedom and financial independence turns into grueling hours, stress, and bills, and ultimately failure. This is the paradox that is entrepreneurship.

Understanding the “Entrepreneur’s Paradox” may be your key to success. Morley is here to show startup businesspersons how to achieve the golden rule of successful entrepreneurs—5x results. Put yourself on a defined pathway to business success by understanding the 16 pitfalls faced by all startups and conquer the Entrepreneur’s Paradox.

  • Learn how to promote entrepreneurship development

Who Rocked the Boat?

Learn How to Turn Change into Opportunity

“Change is not merely necessary to life—it is life.” –Alvin Toffler

In this FranklinCovey book on responding to change, explore your own experiences with change using a river journey parable as a point-of-reference. Take this voyage and discover timeless principles and timely results from an industry leader who has helped numerous organizations turn disruptive change into individual and collective opportunity.         

Who Rocked the Boat? We all travel along various rivers in life, which means at any moment we can find ourselves navigating their uncertainty—whether a global pandemic, a new boss, a shift in employment, business restructuring, a new role on a team, starting a new course in school, a new business strategy, the birth of a child, divorce, or responding to a setback on a project or personal goal.

Shift happens! Change is going to happen. It’s a fact of life. Understanding your reactions and making good choices could make the difference between capitalizing on an opportunity or resisting and missing an important chance.

The FranklinCovey Change Model. While every change is unique, there is a predictable pattern to change, and understanding this pattern and building the skills to navigate it is often the difference between success and failure. The FranklinCovey Change Model provides the structure necessary to orient, ground, and gain clarity about change. Then, like the ship’s crew in the river journey parable, we can use the model as a map to chart our way forward: making key decisions, adopting new behaviors, and building ideal conditions for innovation. Today, with change coming at us in fast and increasingly disruptive ways, understanding The Change Model is more important than ever.

If books such as Together Is Better by Simon Sinek, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni, or Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson have been valuable, you will want to read Who Rocked the Boat?

What Your Employees Need and Can't Tell You

A Science-Based Organizational Change Roadmap for Managers

“A science-based playbook that is a must-read for every manager of people…” —John A. ListWall Street Journal bestselling author of The Voltage Effect and The Why Axis

#1 New Release in Office Management and Business Operations Research

Adapting to change is part of life. But, change is hard and managing change is even harder.

First, understand how the brain works. Because we really don’t know how the brain works, we don’t know what makes us more receptive to change.  Employees can’t tell their managers what they need to “get on the train”, and managers don’t know either.

How to get your team on board. In her first book, What Your Customer Wants and Can't Tell You, author and behavioral economics specialist Melina Palmer, applies the science of behavioral economics to unlocking what is behind customer decisions. Behavioral economics combines elements of economics and psychology to understand how and why people behave the way they do in the real world. Now, in her sequel, What Your Employees Need and Can’t Tell You, she offers a highly actionable roadmap for business executives and managers faced with the task of instituting successful organizational change.

Actionable behavioral economics for successful change management. What Your Employees Need and Can’t Tell You delivers insights and research from behavioral economics and the greater behavioral sciences, presented in an enjoyable way that you can actually use to get results.

Inside find:

  • An introduction to how the brain really works when faced with change
  • Insights into key biases and concepts the subconscious brain uses to make decisions
  • “Apply it” sections with tips on how to start using what you have learned—immediately

If you are responsible for managing change and have tried books such as The Heart of Business, Humanocracy, or Change, you should read Melina Palmer’s What Your Employees Need and Can’t Tell You.
