Only one book debuted on the Wall Street Journal business best-seller list this week (July 23-24, p. C14).
The book is entitled Pivot: The Art and Science of Reinventing Your Career and Life (Atria Books, 2016). It entered the list at #7, and has been available since mid-April of this year.
The author is Adam Markel. He is the CEO of Peak Potentials. Over the years, he has trained thousands of people to find new jobs, careers, and directions. In addition to being an author, he is a keynote speaker, real estate developer, entrepreneur, and attorney. Having run his private law practice for more than 17 years, Adam underwent a career change by creating a successful commercial real estate investment firm, title insurance company, and social media start-up. You can read more about him by clicking HERE to find his website.
His website describes the book as follows:
“Adam reveals his top strategies and tools to creating a new path towards your ultimate happiness and fulfillment by finding your big ‘why’ for living. Adam shares powerful and life-changing exercises, declarations and challenges with you, as a way to help you start taking action, releasing negative beliefs and patterns and replacing them with powerful Intentions and daily rituals.”
Markel also publishes a downloadable Pivot Journal, to help you track your progress toward the reinvention of your career and life that you desire.
We have not yet determined if we will present this book at an upcoming First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas. While it qualifies since it is on a national best-seller list, one factor will be whether it maintains its popularity, and appears on other lists. As I am writing this post, the book is at #157 on the Motivation and Self-Improvement business sub-category on Amazon.com.
So, stay tuned as we monitor its progress.
