Descrizione

A revised and updated edition of the international bestseller

Inspiring listeners all over the globe to reimagine their future, this revised and updated edition of What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 features new material to complement the classic text.

Major life transitions such as leaving the protected environment of school or starting a new career can be daunting. It is scary to face a wall of choices, knowing that no one is going to tell us if we make the right decision. There is no clearly delineated path or recipe for success. Even figuring out how and where to start can be a challenge.

As head of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Tina Seelig's job is to guide her students as they make the difficult transition from the academic environment to the professional world—providing tangible skills and insights that will last a lifetime. Seelig is a wildly popular and award-winning teacher and in What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 she shares with us what she offers her students —provocative stories, inspiring advice, and a big dose of humility and humor.

This audiobook is filled with captivating examples, from the classroom to the boardroom, of individuals defying expectations, challenging assumptions, and achieving unprecedented success. Seelig throws out the old rules and provides a new model for reaching our potential.  We discover how to have a healthy disregard for the impossible; how to recover from failure; and how most problems are remarkable opportunities in disguise.

What I Wish I Knew When I Was Twenty is a much-needed audiobook for everyone looking to make their mark in the world.

    I enjoyed the stories, examples, and ideas in this book! Even if all the ideas are not new, many of them are, and they all are great reminders of thinking outside the box. I liked the optimism, energy, and reminder of enjoying the uncertainty in the journey of life!

    Tina quotes many examples of entrepreneurs and tells us how they manufactured their own luck by working hard. The very first lesson that you'll learn from this book is that you needn't have huge money to start an enterprise - just a cool idea and you can start working on your own. She tells us you can create wealth from almost nothing.The book becomes quite less interesting towards the middle, because she keeps on describing one successful person after another but you can still read it.It would have been nice if Tina had covered more about the Stanford Technology Ventures Program and entrepreneurship stories from Stanford, but then again that's not what the book is all about.It's not a book filled with stunning nuggets of information or enlightenment, but it's inspiring nevertheless.
