Who Do You Think You Are?

Times are changing fast. Traditional working practices and the concept of a conventional job are increasingly becoming things of the past as we make sense of a new marketplace where the only limit to success is our own imagination.

What Does it take to Survive in This New Scrambled Up World of Work?
* Attitude - to get started
* Enterprise - to succeed
* Success - at maximising opportunities
* Worklife - in the right balance

The challenges - and the opportunities - for the 'entrepreneur-within' the huge. For micro-businesses, home-workers, freelancers, it's all for the taking.

That is the essence of LEAP! A stimulus for taking the plunge to go it alone and set yourself free... and for making it up as you go along!

"Ian Sanders connects brilliantly wit the mindset and needs of talented professionals in their migration away from corporate mediocrity. LEAP! is a personal guidebook to both the practicality and emotion of making work matter." - Chris Nel, Partner, Tom Peters Company
