Dream big: Do you want to be known as a tremendous talent...or a lazy, unfocused slacker? Whether you’re a Millennial yearning to join corporate America, a Boomer ready for reinvention, a closeted LGBTQ+ testing the gender pool or even a nerd nauseated with perfection, the Get Out of Your Own Way Guide to Life: 10 Steps to Shift Gears, Dream Big, Do it Now! by Justin Loeber, is an in-your-face, funny, no-nonsense, socio-business, coming-of-ageless handbook for anyone who is yearning for true, inner-personal success.
You’ll learn 10 easy steps, such as Work on Your Work Ethic • Own the Power of Thoughtfulness • Find Perfection in Imperfection • Rule Your Planet…and more.
This shebang of a book is based on Loeber’s quirky personal life experiences that all started in the NYC 70s disco era: Justin worked as a waiter, a Wang Word Processing Operator, (remember Wang?), a substitute go-go dancer, was discovered by pop icon Gary Numan in London and was one step from stardom in his own right as a solo pop-recording artist―only to lose it all. Then, in a 180-degree turn―and without a college degree―went from a temp at Random House to an EVP at HarperCollins in a little more than a decade. In 2006 Loeber created mouth: digital + public relations, a boutique agency in NYC―repping over 550 clients to date.

• Shake down your fear, which is squelching your dream;

Career military? Leaving the military for civilian life? Either way, you can leverage your experience into some great new business startup ideas.
Military spouses can face serious challenges when trying to develop a career while part of the military life, or equally serious challenges when they transition to civilian life. But, help is on the way in Mission Entrepreneur: Applying Lessons from Military Life to Create Great Startup Ideas!
Finding startup ideas that can make you a business success: Are you trying to find your niche in our modern world of underemployment and the self-employed, where many are looking for great startup ideas and the opportunity to build wealth and find happiness and fulfillment? Some of the best startup ideas are yet to be discovered and Mission Entrepreneur will guide you through Jen E. Griswold's journey toward realizing her personal dream of becoming one of the successful women entrepreneurs. Experiencing underemployment as a military spouse, she learns how to turn her military experience into business success.
The underemployment problem: Being a military spouse comes with sacrifices. Spouses give up college degrees, careers and put other plans on hold due to military relocations. The country feels the effects. Reports show that 90% of female spouses face underemployment and countless income tax dollars are lost. As both a spouse and veteran for 20 years, Jen E. Griswold witnessed many spouses trying to keep a career going through their first few assignments. After multiple failed attempts and the addition of kids, they often gave up, deciding their efforts were futile. Their confidence waned and they began to question their self-worth.
Women entrepreneurs: Ironically, these same people have the perfect set of skills needed to become successful women entrepreneurs: work ethic, vision, passion, and resilience. These are the exact same skills that have helped them endure a life of sacrifice in the military. But, in most cases, they have given up on their own personal big visions to change the world. Using a lifetime of experience, military trained veterans entering the job force know how to manage the bumpy journey to becoming men and women entrepreneurs and finding those great startup ideas.
Mission Entrepreneur: From her extensive training in the Air Force and experience coaching women over the past several years, Griswold discovered that by giving back to her military community, she could change the world a little bit every day. America needs more men and women entrepreneurs who pay it forward and here is where we’ll start. Welcome to Mission Entrepreneur.

The essential guide to how media shape our lives. By the creator of the most talked about political ad in television history.
Tony Schwartz, the man the New York Times called the "king of sound," drew on his unrivaled wealth of experience in the communications industry, to give us The Responsive Chord, an engaging read and one of the seminal books on media. Through his decades of work, Schwartz came to understand that most advertisers, politicians, and educators—in fact, most all of us—use a model of communication long outmoded by the coming of electronic media. In The Responsive Chord, he shows us how this model has made us blind to many of the inner workings of modern communication. He explains how audio and visual material can be used to create “resonance” with an audience. His “resonance principle” explains that the meaning of an ad (or any other stimulus) is not present in the ad itself but rather in how the ad relates to the vast array knowledge and associations—both factual and emotional—already held in the mind of the viewer. Thus, audience members do not merely digest a message; they are an essential force in creating it.
The implications for anyone looking to impart a message or influence decisions are enormous.
And with so many people these days getting their information through social media and "fake news" sites, it is crucial that we understand the strong forces by which these outlets act upon us and, yes, manipulate our ideas and actions. The Responsive Chord reveals these forces in a captivating and eye-opening read.
“I read The Responsive Chord as a freshman in college and it affected everything I’ve ever made since. Its message is practical and deep. I’d recommend it to anyone.”
— Ira Glass, Creator & Host of NPR’s This American Life
“Tony Schwartz was a genius in his understanding of the communications revolution of the 20th century. My interview with him was one of my favorites and one of the most important of my own long career in broadcast journalism.”
— Bill Moyers, Journalist, Political Commentator and White House Press Secretary
“Tony Schwartz was not only an original theorist but a master persuader whose must-read book is brimming with indispensable insight about how humans construct meaning through media.”
— Prof. Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Director, Annenberg Public Policy Center
“Here's the still-true story about how a media environment can shape our thoughts, our purchases and, yes, our votes. It's not just the content that influences us; if only it were that simple. No, it's the media themselves, the political economy driving them, and the atomizing impact of their targeted messaging. Maybe reading this book will prepare us to think more critically about the way social media is used on, and against us today.”
— Douglas Rushkoff, author, Program or Be Programmed, Present Shock, and Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus
“The Responsive Chord had a profound impact on me when I first read it as a teenager, and it sparked a lifelong interest in the impact of media and technology in education. Re-reading it today, Tony Schwartz's observations about education in a media-saturated environment are deeply prescient and more relevant than ever.”
— Luyen Chou, Chief Product Officer, Pearson Education
"I keep talking to Tony, learning from Tony, practically every day. Radio and audio are Tony’s World. We just live in it.”
— Christopher Lydon, Radio Host of The Connection and Open Source, former New York Times Journalist
