In this book, a political powerhouse and mother of two thriving entrepreneurs interviews the moms of over fifty of today’s most successful innovators and—based on her findings—provides ten rules for raising confident, fearless, self-made individuals whose ideas and drive will change the world. Is your child passionate about something? Maybe it’s music, sports, theatre, writing, building things, or helping others—the kind of creative pursuits that create distinguished leaders and make change in the world. All parents want their kids to have success, but how do you help them cultivate their talent and vision for a personally fulfilling and financially successful life? Once you’ve recognized their drive and passion, how do you set your little trailblazers free? Raising an Entrepreneur presents seventy-six stories from the mothers of some of the most successful entrepreneurs today. Entrepreneurs are the new rock stars—they’re the ones who turn their passions into ingenious projects, because they’re willing to risk failure to make their dreams come true. Highlighting the various achievements of innovators from a wide range of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds—such as Geek Squad’s Robert Stephens and Nantucket Nectars' Tom Scott, nonprofit founders like Mama Hope’s Nyla Rodgers and Pencils of Promise's Adam Braun, profit for purpose creators like TOMS Shoes' Blake Mycoskie and FEED Projects’ Ellen Gustafson, activists like Mike de la Rocha and Erica Ford, and artists like actress Emmanuelle Chriqui and songwriter Benny Blanco—and with photos of the entrepreneurs as children, these inspirational interviews will provide guidance and support on nurturing your own change maker. Not every kid will be an entrepreneur, but all kids have something that makes them unique. If you’re seeking a way to nurture your children’s passions and help them harness their talent, drive, and grit into a fulfilling life purpose, this book is for you. With these ten rules and numerous inspiring stories, you’ll gain confidence in raising your child into a creatively successful adult.

The basis for a major documentary, two leading experts sound an urgent call for the radical reimagining of American education so we can equip students for the realities of the twenty-first-century economy. We prize academic achievement, pressuring our children to get into the "right" colleges, have the highest GPAs, and pursue advanced degrees. But while students may graduate with credentials, by and large they lack the competencies needed to be thoughtful, engaged citizens and to get good jobs in our rapidly evolving economy. Alarmingly, our methods of schooling crush the creativity and initiative young people really need to thrive in the twenty-first century. Now bestselling author and education expert Tony Wagner and venture capitalist Ted Dintersmith call for a complete overhaul of American schools, sharing insights and stories from the front lines. Their powerful, urgent message identifies the growing gap between credentials and competence--and offers a framework for change. Most Likely to Succeed presents a new vision of American education, one that puts wonder, creativity, and initiative at the very heart of the learning process and prepares students for today's economy.

An American Demon is Jack Grisham's story of depravity and redemption, terror and spiritual deliverance. While Grisham is best known as the caterwauling front man of the pioneer hardcore punk band TSOL (True Sounds of Liberty), his writings and true life experiences are physically and psychologically more complex, unsettling and violent than those of Bret Easton Ellis and Chuck Palahniuk. An American Demon documents a youth rebellion that changed the world, told from the point of view of the American punk movement.

A hilarious and poignant memoir of a Harvard student who comes of age as a caddie on St. Andrews’s fabled Old Course. In the middle of Oliver Horovitz’s high school graduation ceremony, his cell phone rang: It was Harvard. He’d been accepted, but he couldn’t start for another year. A caddie since he was twelve and a golfer sporting a 1.8 handicap, Ollie decides to spend his gap year in St. Andrews, Scotland—a town with the U.K.’s highest number of pubs per capita, and home to the Old Course, golf ’s most famous eighteen holes—where he enrolls in the St. Andrews Links Trust caddie trainee program. Initially, the notoriously brusque veteran caddies treat Ollie like a bug. But after a year of waking up at 4:30 A.M. every morning and looping two rounds a day, Ollie earns their grudging respect— only to have to pack up and leave for Harvard. There, Ollie’s new classmates are the sons of Albania’s UN ambassador, the owner of Heineken, and the CEO of Goldman Sachs. Surrounded by sixth generation legacies, he feels like a fish out of water all over again and can’t wait to get back to St. Andrews. Even after graduation, when his college friends rush to Wall Street, Horovitz continues to return each summer to caddie on the Old Course. A hilarious, irresistible, behind-the-scenes peek at the world’s most celebrated golf course—and its equally famous caddie shack—An American Caddie in St. Andrews is certain to not only entertain golfers and fans of St. Andrews but also anyone who dares to remember stumbling into adulthood and finding one’s place in the world.

The majority of companies, their employees and their leaders navigate a space where competitors appear overnight, customers demand innovations monthly, business plans rarely last a full year and career ladders have been replaced by trampolines. This environment of constant change will only accelerate in the future and traditional business leaders are ill equipped to deal with it. Just as we took our cues from MBAs and the military in casting the ideal CEO of the 20th century, we can look to design - in its broadest form - to model our future leader, the DEO. These leaders possess characteristics, behaviors and mindsets that allow them to excel in unpredictable, fast-moving and value-charged conditions. They are catalysts for transformation and agents of change. A hybrid of strategic business executive and creative problem-solver, the DEO is willing to take on anything as an object of design and looks at ALL problems as design challenges. Readers will learn not only why this form of leadership is essential to the success of modern organizations, but also what characteristics are best suited to this role. Through intimate conversations with leading DEOs, we explore the mindsets, communities, processes and practices common to creative business leaders. The book lays out—graphically and through example—how DEOs run their companies and why this approach makes sense now. We help readers identify these skills in themselves and their colleagues, and we guide them in using these skills to build, revive or reinvent the next generation of great companies and organization.
