“A+ grades or extreme talent are not required for success, average can be quite successful,” says Cynthia Kocialski, tech founder. “This book gives hope to those children and young adults who are not straight A, top of the class students.”

From January 17th through March 19th, Cynthia will help anyone realize their goals, avoid common pitfalls, and lay the groundwork through the secondary talents, skills, and mind-set necessary for optimal success. Cynthia provides straight facts, anecdotes, and examples that will enable teens and youth who truly wants to succeed, to launch their career on solid footing.

Not only is she the founder of three tech companies, she has experienced many start-ups and has seen them from the inside out, including the day-to-day trials and tribulations, not just the milestones and status presented to passive investors and outsiders. In the past 15 years, she has been involved in dozens of start-ups and has served on various advisory boards. These companies have collectively returned billions of dollars to investors. Cynthia has held various technical, marketing, and management positions at IBM and Matrox Electronics. Cynthia has Engineering and Mathematics degrees from the University of Rochester and the University of Virginia, respectively. Cynthia says, “It’s those secondary skills, beyond the talent, that creates the packaging needed to make it all happen. So why wait to develop these complementary skills until after you perfected your talent?”

In today’s global, hypercompetitive marketplace, the rules for success have changed dramatically. During Cynthia’s work with start-up companies and entrepreneurs, she realized that many young adults graduate completely unaware of a new playing field that no one has bothered to tell them about – and that is not always predicated by superior grades or talents. In eighteen concise and revelatory chapters, she draws from her own professional achievements and challenges to debunk common myths that can lead astray aspiring professionals in their early years of forging a career.

On the tour, Cynthia will be discussing why some kids are better in business, why youth are ill-equipped to be entrepreneurs, bad habits learned in school that affect careers, why sports is good training for entrepreneurs, how the game changes after the diploma, and how the average student can be highly successful. “And best of all,” says Cynthia, “this book clears up some common misconceptions that kids are told in school that hinder their success in later years.”
