Disrupt Yourself, Or Be Disrupted - Nickey Verd - review

Two books on top of each other: Disrupt Yourself, Or Be Disrupted
Disrupt Yourself, Or Be Disrupted
Escape Conformity, Reinvent Your Thinking and Thrive
in an Era of Emerging Technologies and Economic Anxiety
Nickey Verd, the author of Disrupt Yourself, Or Be Disrupted, has sent me a digital copy of her book for an honest review.

I am so excited about the book. It should be in the hands of everybody. We are living in fast changing times where technological and digital disruption have changed the way we live and make our living. It's imperative that we understand that we can't be complacent about the way we work, and the way we earn our salaries. I am probably of the last who will be in my job for nearly 30 years.

It's not scaremongering when we are told that we must prepare for the 4th industrial revolution which are here already, also in Africa. The state of  disruptive technologies and trends such as the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) are with us. Making our lives easier, but also making it complicated when we do not stay ahead. Fact is that our jobs as we know it are on the line.

Luckily there's a solution. We can make sure that we stay current and on top of things. Nicky Verd has a number of practical ideas and solutions of how to ride this wave, and how to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset. I am a big fan of Dr John Demartini, and one of his biggest goals in life is to help people to find their biggest passions and cultivate that into a successful businesses. The same applies in this book. We are coached to focus on our highest values and to turn that into business ideas.

This is a book to keep close!

Thank you, Nicky Verd, for the inspiration, and motivation to never stop learning!
