Getting started can be the hardest part of the journey. People who succeed at achieving their goals rarely do so by chance. Hard work is often not enough. Even a clear vision of your objective plus persistence and determination may not raise your odds of success sufficiently in this competitive world. What is the secret that enables the most successful to achieve their dreams? In a word, it is strategy. A strategy is your plan to get what you want using only what you have. Nobody has unlimited resources, and many may have more than you. That doesn't have to be the obstacle it seems if you are willing to invest time and energy to develop a workable blueprint with a high probability of taking you from where you are to where you want to be. Alan Lattanner on The Essence of Strategy contains 140 "Ahas" about strategy gleaned from the author's management consulting, life experience and study in many contexts, including science, technology, engineering, field operations, marketing, startups, emerging growth company challenges, CEO coaching, and family life. Alan Lattanner on The Essence of Strategy includes key definitions, motivational quotations, and insights by both experts and the author that enable you to quickly assimilate the core ideas of strategy development and put them to work in your own life or business.

We choose to infuse our lives with more purpose and meaning by working and living this way. <i>Work Independently & Live Connectedly: 140 Steps to Freelancing Freedom</i> explores four areas where freelancers can excel in their work and life: self, relationships, collaboration, and sharing. As long as freelancers consistently work within these areas, they will be securely traveling the road to Freelancing Freedom.
