The End of Jobs: Money, Meaning and Freedom Without the 9-to-5

"The most important thing about The End of Jobs is that entrepreneurship is not a choice you can make at your leisure.
 
This is something that is actually happening. The train is leaving the station. You have to either jump on the train or lose your chance forever. 
 
Now is the time and Taylor's book describes exactly how to do it."

This book has the potential to provide answers to those who are currently resting on the edge of the “traditional” life path (college, job, retirement), but unsettled themselves as to if that’s what they really want.

In This Book You’ll Learn:

— Why the century-long growth in wages came to a halt in 2000.

— Why MBAs and JDs can’t get jobs and what that means for the future of work and your job.

— Why The Theory of Constraints and a shift into the Fourth Economy has made entrepreneurship the highest-leveraged career path for the young and ambitious.

— Why The Turkey Problem means accounting may be the riskiest profession in the 21st century while entrepreneurship may be the safest.

— How entrepreneurs with second-rate degrees are leveraging the radical democracy of the Long Tail to get rich.

— How the Stair Step Method and return of apprenticeships have transformed the “entrepreneurial leap" to make entrepreneurship more accessible than ever.

Hundred Word Summary

The rapid development of technology and globalization has changed the leverage points in accumulating wealth: money, meaning and freedom.

Those that don’t adapt are becoming trapped in the downward spiral of a dying middle class - working harder and earning less.

Entrepreneurs that understand the new paradigm, have created unprecedented wealth in their lives and the lives of those they love.

About the Author

Taylor spent the last three years meeting with hundreds of entrepreneurs from Los Angeles to Vietnam, Brazil to New York, and worked with dozens of them, in industries from cat furniture to dating, helping them to grow their businesses.

Regardless of the industry, age, race, country, or gender, one simple fact stood out: entrepreneurship was dramatically more accessible, profitable, and safer… while jobs were riskier and less profitable than the public is typically (
mis)led to believe.

Based on hundreds of interactions and dozens of recent books and studies, he wrote The End of Jobs to show others how they could invest in entrepreneurship to create more freedom, meaning, and wealth in their lives.
