Career Development 

Valuable FREE ebook. (Added 01/27/2015) VisibleExpertBookCover
The ebook, The Visible Expert, was coauthored by the marketing expert who wrote the article that inspired this earlier post. This research-based book lays out a detailed roadmap for how you can become known as a “visible expert” in your industry. It’s excellent, and is available as a FREE instant download HERE. This book’s ideas can be used to drive your career or your business…or both!

Outstanding FREE online article:
The Brand Called You by Tom Peters (Another personal favorite of mine. In this 1997 Fast Company article about personal branding, Peters nailed the subject cold, long before the idea became mainstream). Learn more about the topic of personal branding and get a peek into this article in this earlier blog post.


Personal Development 

Outstanding FREE ebook/guide titled Transform Your Habits. (Added 10/30/2014) TransformYourHabits
This guide was written by, and is available from, James Clear. He’s currently one of my favorite writers on the topic of personal development. I blogged and posted a video here about why I like James’ writing and this guide so much.

 

Outstanding FREE online article:
My Life as a Knowledge Worker by Peter Drucker (My all-time favorite 1997 INC magazine article about lifelong learning, written by the management guru who mastered it)
