Holding My Book in My Hands: What a Strange Feeling
“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”
~ Oscar Wilde
My book launch is coming up and just in time I received my books yesterday afternoon. Once I opened one of the packages, my heart skipped a beat. In my hands was a book with my name on it. Wow, I made a dream become a reality. This is my book and I am crazy excited about it.
Watch out! This book is going to challenge gloomy outlooks! It was written out of passion with the desire to create awareness. You will be able to purchase a signed copy by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and you will also find the Kindle version on Amazon after April 26. Are you ready to be inspired?
Sexy manufacturing? For some, this may sound contradictory. In her book, Karin Lindner outlines that in reality, every organization needs an element of sexiness. The dictionary defines sexy as “generally attractive or interesting; exciting, appealing, trendy.” It is the creation of an initial interest. Now more than ever, it is time to rethink, redefine, and thereby rediscover the sexiness of our manufacturing industry.
In general, a job in manufacturing seems to have the same connotation as that of a garbage man. We all know that garbage collection is important and necessary, but it’s not a job that we would persuade our own children to consider. Rather than being viewed as an important cornerstone to our wealth and prosperity, a career in manufacturing is looked upon as a possible option for those who are not smart enough to go to university. This may have been true in the past, but it no longer applies today because skilled trades truly are excellent career options.
Written from the heart with personal stories and experiences, Lindner is not shy to point out that it is time to stop pointing fingers and start becoming more proactive. Parents, young adults, educators, guidance counselors and countless others must be made aware of the incredible opportunities that exist in the manufacturing industry.
