“Being an ‘Outlier’ is more than just waking up everyday and rolling with the crowd, its about getting people to step out of their comfort zones and conquer obstacles that they didn’t think possible,” said John Shufeldt, author of the book.
According to Shufeldt the purpose of the competition is to connect with students in middle and high school, to inform them about the Young Outliers book as a guide to achieving their personal career goals. The book is the newest addition to the Outlier Series, which will consist of at least eight more books scheduled to publish through 2015, relating to specific career fields like sports, medicine, law, entertainment, publishing, and more.
“I never had a mentor growing up,” said Shufeldt. “My goal for this series is to provide a surrogate mentor for young people, students, and anyone looking to further their career path through personalized how–to-guides and stories from ‘rock stars’ in their desired career fields.”
Ingredients of Young Outliers is packed with advice and inspirational stories from author, John Shufeldt’s, personal endeavors as well as those of historical “outliers” and influential acquaintances. This book is the second in the “Outlier Series” which is set to be released in segments over the course of 2015 to students, college graduates and anyone interested in entering or furthering their career.
The goal of the series is to offer books specific to sought after career fields with insider information and recommended channels for pursuing that career from experts in each respective profession. The career fields include are (but not limited to): Medicine, Law, Sports, Design / Engineering, The Arts / Entertainment, Entrepreneurism / Business, Service to Country/ Service to Mankind, Writing / Journalism, and Travel / Leisure
