OK, the joke’s on me, but it came a day early. . .

as I found out both of my main websites had been hacked with malware. Too bad the hackers weren’t just playing a mischievous trick. 🙁

As in all of life, however, we take the good with the bad. The good news is. . .

My publisher of Never Apply for a Job Again: Break the Rules, Cut the Line, Beat the Restnotified me yesterday that Amazon had ordered a lot of extra inventory and therefore had put the book on a special sale! I’ve never seen it priced this low, and even bought copies for myself because they’re cheaper for this limited time on Amazon than buying directly from my own publisher! 

SO, if you or anyone you know has had a challenging time around work this last year — or is even considering making a conscious, well-thought-out and highly informed career shift — THIS would be the time to get a copy. . .or 4 (the purchase limit)!

There are SO MANY folks slogging through the frontdoor of career transition these days — struggling with resumes submitted online to be one of THOUSANDS applying for limited roles — that anyone having this education in a “backdoor,” stealth approach will always come out better and land quicker.

It’s not about “informational interviewing,” (which all but says you need a job) but about connecting through relationships into the “hidden” job market. Given that 80% of all jobs are filled before they’re ever posted, the backdoor is the way into the biggest piece of the employment pie.

And, little is it known that a stealth, behind-the-scenes, research-based approach to educating oneself and connecting with executives and thought leaders in one’s areas of passionate interest has been even BETTER during Covid times. . .because those executives and thought leaders are working from home, like everyone else, and way more reachable.

And did I mention endorsements from Harvey Mackay, Keith Ferrazzi, and Dr. Ivan Misner, to name a few?

So, if you’ve got $3.32
 to put toward yourself or someone you care about (or 4 x $3.42 to put toward four people you care about), today would be the day to grab some copies!

Tell you what, to sweeten your gift to them, for every receipt you forward to me from your purchases, I’ll give you a one-time code for a 25% discount on the companion online program I created to go along with the book, Dream Job Lifeline. You can forward those discount codes to your friends, helping them even more.

Now, that’s looking out for friends in need in today’s recovering economy. And that’s making the best of foolish times.

Happy April Fool’s.

Think differently, play a better game.
