The Roommate Book is all about celebrating this short season of life. It’s the time between parental curfews and settling down with a significant other. It is for the single and proud, silly and crafty, witty and thrifty. It’s a non-serious look at how to live with a friend (or total stranger). Nuggets of wisdom are included, but so are comical pie charts, hypotheticals, illustrations, and brief essays. This book invites passersby to thumb through and stay a while. Meet your roommate: The Random, The BFF, The Bra-less & Lawless, The "I've never actually seen my roommate," The "We get along but we're not really friends," The Enemy, The Frenemy, The Platonic Opposite Sex, or The Faux Partner. Use the "Should I Live with This Person" flow chart to help you choose. This fun and functional book also includes: The "Should I eat this without asking?" flow chart, the top 10 reasons it's awesome to have a roommate, the pet peeve awareness illustrated guide, the Eisenhower matrix for chores (important, urgent, not important, not urgent), the guide to creating nicknames, party and prank ideas, and so much more!

Category: Self-Help

Page: 154

View: 7568

The Freshman Fabulous: The Girl's Guide to College is a humorous, helpful and honest interactive guide written by a recent grad, for the future grad. As a college student, Jess secured an internship all four years with companies like Disney World, Make-A-Wish and the TODAY Show. She gave campus tours every Tuesday and taught fitness classes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. She played intramural coed flag football and got a stage three concussion. As a sophomore, she made it on CNN running the Krispy Kreme Challenge (eating a dozen donuts and then running 5 miles). Her junior year, she ended up starting my own company, Headbands of Hope, which gives headbands to children with cancer. By the time she graduated in May 2013, it was her full-time job and in over 100 stores in the US and Canada. Being fresh out of college, Jess decided to put all of her tips and tricks (and mistakes) into a guide to help others who are about to embark on their college journey. The Freshman Fabulous: The Girl's Guide to College isn't filled with statistics and studies about college. It's filled with real and honest stories and advice from Ekstrom as well as other anecdotes from female grads. Topics range from what to wear on your first day of class, what to do if you fail a test, how to land internships, studying abroad, what to eat (and what not to eat) at the dining halls, dating, what to do when you have roommate troubles, joining clubs, picking electives and important topics like safety on campus and alcohol. One of the most unique parts about this book is the interactive opportunity. Readers will be encouraged to map out their own college career and goals along the way by using helpful guides. This book isn't a "how to book" to live a college experience like Jess did. But rather, a compilation of lessons learned in college. Through this book, readers will be able to use her stories as a foundation to map out their own college journey.

The Third Wave

An Entrepreneur's Vision of the Future

The #1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller from Steve Case—the co-founder of AOL—presents “a compelling roadmap for the future…that can help us make sense of the technological changes reshaping our economy and the world. A fascinating read” (Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and founder of Steve Case—a pioneer who made the Internet part of everyday life—was on the leading edge of a revolution in 1985 when he co-founded AOL, the first Internet company to go public and the most successful business of the 1990s. Back then Case was an entrepreneur in an industry that hadn’t really been invented yet, but he had a sense how dramatically the Internet would transform business and society. In The Third Wave, he uses his insights garnered from nearly four decades of working as an innovator, investor, and businessman to argue the importance of entrepreneurship and to chart a path for future innovators. We are entering, as Case explains, the “Third Wave” of the Internet. The first wave saw AOL and other companies lay the foundation for consumers to connect to the Internet. The second wave saw companies like Google and Facebook build on top of the Internet to create search and social networking capabilities, while apps like Snapchat and Instagram leveraged the smartphone revolution. Now, Case argues, we’re entering the Third Wave: a period in which entrepreneurs will vastly transform major “real world” sectors such as health, education, transportation, energy, and food—and in the process change the way we live our daily lives. Part memoir, part manifesto, and part playbook for the future, The Third Wave explains the ways in which newly emerging technology companies will have to rethink their relationships with customers, with competitors, and with governments; and offers advice for how entrepreneurs can make winning business decisions and strategies—and how all of us can make sense of this ever-changing digital age.
