I just got this invitation. Reid is widely known as one of the smartest people in Silicon Valley and as one of "the good guys." I have also heard great reports about Reid and Ben's new book too, but haven't read it. Reid also recently gave a talk at Stanford you might check out. Here is the invite:
Reid Hoffman and Ben Casnocha — authors of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Start-Up of You — are hosting a live, hour-long webcast in which they will discuss how you can accelerate your career today.
You will learn the best practices of some of the most successful start-ups on the planet (like PayPal and LinkedIn), and how these strategies can be applied to your career -- no matter your industry or job function. You will learn how to launch career plans amid uncertainty; how to change jobs based on what you learn; how to generate breakout opportunities; how to take intelligent risks; how to develop real relationships and build an effective professional network. Most of all, you will learn how to *think* like an entrepreneur when steering the start-up that is your career.
- When: Thursday, March 29, at 6:30 PM PST
As a special perk for my readers, Reid and Ben will prioritize answering your questions, so post them in the comments below or tweet the question with the hashtag #startQ.
