BUILD FOR TOMORROW

An Action Plan for Embracing Change, Adapting Fast, and Future-Proffing Your Career

by Feifer, Jason

Jason, the editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine and host of the Build for Tomorrow podcast, shows readers how to adapt quickly in the face of change and how to find opportunity in change, by using the power of reinvention to your advantage.

We experience change in four phases. The first is panic. Then we adapt. Then we find a new normal. And then, finally, we reach the phase we could not have imagined in the beginning, the moment when we realize that we wouldn't go back.

BUILD FOR TOMORROW is designed to accelerate that process - to help you lessen your panic, adapt faster, define the new normal, and thrive going forward. And it arrives as we all, in some way, have felt a shift in our lives. The pandemic forced a moment of collective change, and we are still being forced to make new plans and adjustments to our lives, families, and careers. Many of us will never go back, continuing to work from home, demanding higher wages, or starting new businesses.

To help people along this journey, Entrepreneur magazine editor in chief Jason Feifer offers stories, lessons, and concrete exercises from the most potent sources of change in our world. He speaks to the world's most successful changemakers - from global celebrities like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Maria Sharapova to innovative CEOs and Main Street heroes - to learn how they decide what to protect, what to discard, and how to move forward without fear. He also draws lessons from history, looking at how massive changes across time can help us better understand the opportunities of today. For example, he finds guidance for our post-pandemic realities inside the power shifts that occurred after the Bubonic Plague, and he reveals how the history of innovations like the elevator and even the teddy bear can teach anyone to be more forward-thinking.

We cannot anticipate tomorrow's needs, but it shouldn't take a crisis to push us forward. This book will show you how to make change on your own terms.

Jason Feifer is the editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine and host of two popular podcasts: Build for Tomorrow and Problem Solvers. He has also worked as an editor at Men's Health, Fast Company, Maxim, and Boston magazine, and has written about business and technology for the Washington Post, New York, and Slate. Additionally, he co-authored the romantic comedy, Mr. Nice Guy, with his wife, Jennifer Miller (St. Martin's, 2018).

Quote: Entrepreneur.com

This is a book for absolutely anyone facing down an uncertain future, as well as an inspirational guide to every entrepreneur and aspiring entrepreneur who wants to help shape the world. As we reach a critical crossroads in history, we must accept that the future is not optional. We can't opt out of it. In both business, culture, and politics, incumbents will fall and new challengers will rise up. The results will be unpredictable, but as individuals, we cannot slow or stop it. We can, however, participate in it and benefit from it.

Quote: Jason Feifer on his book

In a time of anxiety and uncertainty, Build for Tomorrow gives you the tools and confidence to be more resilient. It will change the way you think so you can overcome any obstacle and reach your full potential.

Quote: Jim Kwik, New York Times bestselling author of Limitless

I wish I'd had this book years ago! Jason's advice is honest and real and can help you invent your own future with confidence.

Quote: Kandi Burruss, Grammy-winning artist, TV personality, and entrepreneur
