ABOUT THE BOOK - Crafting a Successful Career
YOU REALIZE YOU WILL NEVER BE CEO.
IS SUCCESS NOW BEYOND YOUR REACH?
This book is for the rest of us-the 99-plus percent who have no illusions of leading the band, those of us who never wanted to be the CEO, who aren't willing to make the sacrifices necessary to win the corporate sweepstakes but who still want to maximize our careers within boundaries we created.
Using a step-by-step approach, discover a strategy to craft a successful career, maximize your success and win in a way that is meaningful for you. The author begins his roadmap with a challenge for you to create your own definition of success-the only definition that matters.
He then suggests you:
- Get a job - go after a big job first
- Find a mentor
- Become the best technical person you can be
- Create your network
- Understand sponsorship and learn to influence it
- Perform well
- Generate a backup plan, just in case
And, finally, he speaks to the o.1 percent who will settle for nothing less than becoming the CEO, who face bad odds in a competitive situation: the probability of attaining a top job isn't good, but it's possible - somewhere.
If you are twenty-five and entering the work place for the first time, forty-five and turning your career around, or sixty-five and wondering what happened, this book is for you.

ABOUT THE NOVEL - The Dangled Illusion
The Dangled Illusion is the story of Raef Burnham, who works at WorldFoods, an American food company. When Raef is first hired, he’s placed on the leadership track and becomes a team leader within two years. But sixteen years into his career, he finds himself suddenly demoted.
Raef struggles with the shattering news, dreads the alternatives facing him, and resolves to stay and put his career back on track. But Fortune Montag, the powerful vice president—and the ultimate company man, who thinks and acts like the corporation—stalls him at every turn.
The Dangled Illusion is vindication for all those people who work at a job that shuns individuality and fails to reward its most talented employees. It’s for those who didn’t get to be the boss, who never made it to the next level, and who could never beat the forces aligned against them in an era of globalization and hypocrisy.
