Join The Network

Readers of the Start-Up of You are galvanizing a worldwide movement around how people think about managing themselves in the global economy. This network aims to help you improve your life and the society you live in by giving you tools to turn knowledge into action.

Discuss and Connect With Others

On the LinkedIn group we’ll post discussion topics, polls, and links. It will also be a place to connect with fellow readers and grow your network. Finally, share your story on the group: How have you pivoted to a Plan B? What kind of intelligent risks do you take?

Stay Up To Date

On Twitter we’ll post the latest news and link to some of the best stuff on the web. #startYOU
On Facebook we’ll post photos and videos about the book.
