This presentation / eBook describes three (3) career management lessons I've learned from my Dad and applied to my own career:

1) Learn From the Best
2) Get Published
3) Get Back Up -- Fast!

My Dad inspired me to apply each of these lessons in a digital marketing and social media context (e.g., blogging, participating in Twitter, reading books of marketing strategy thought leaders, connecting directly with marketing strategy thought leaders, etc.).

These lessons describe the opportunity for online self-publishing, personal brand / personal reputation management, and the teachings of different marketing strategy authors.

The marketing strategy authors (and their books and blogs) that have inspired me include Seth Godin, Ann Handley, Mitch Joel, Tom Peters, and David Meerman Scott.

I also cite the resilience and mental toughness of Sallie Krawcheck in dealing with career adversity and setbacks.

It's my way of showing my Dad how much I admire and respect his individual achievements (and the obstacles he overcame while growing up in The Philippines).

Thank you and I hope you enjoy and benefit from reading it. If you find the content helpful, please share this presentation with others.
