Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2015
This week’s debut of Jay Samit’s book Disrupt You! also saw its selection as an Amazon Best Book of the Month for July. Already ranked among Amazon and Barnes & Noble’s top sellers for business decision-making, Disrupt You!: Master Personal Transformation, Seize Opportunity, and Thrive in the Era of Endless Innovation incorporates stories from his own experience and anecdotes from other innovators and disruptive businesses—including Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, YouTube, Circ du Soleil, Iams Dog Food, Silly Putty, and many more—Samit shows how personal transformation can reap entrepreneurial and professional rewards.
The book explores how, in today’s ever-changing and often-volatile business landscape, adaptability and creativity are more crucial than ever. It is no longer possible—or even desirable—to learn one set of job skills and work your way up the ladder. Rather, entrepreneurs and business leaders must anticipate change to create opportunities for professional success and personal satisfaction. In Disrupt You!, Jay Samit—a digital media expert who has launched, grown, and sold start-ups and Fortune 500 companies alike—describes the unique method he has used to invent new products and grow established businesses throughout his career.
Samit has been at the helm of businesses in the ecommerce, digital video, social media, mobile communications, and software industries, helping to navigate them through turbulent economic times and guide them through necessary transformation so that they stay ahead of the curve and profitable. In Disrupt You!, he shows how the strategies that help companies flourish can be applied at an individual level. By challenging assumptions, pinpointing one’s unique value, and identifying weaknesses in the structure of current industries, anyone can achieve success and prosperity.
Jay Samit has been described by Wired magazine as “having the coolest job in the industry.” He is a leading technology innovator who has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for startups; sold companies to Fortune 500 firms; taken companies public; and partnered with some of the world’s biggest brands, including Coca Cola, McDonald’s, General Motors, United Airlines, Microsoft, Apple, Verizon, and Facebook.
