The Beta Version Of You.
You could learn a great deal from apps and release the Beta version of you since it means testing different approaches and continuously updating yourself. It builds on curiosity, courage, and action and it gives your reputation a boost. It's a game changer that transforms your weaknesses into bugs that are natural and can be that you handled, and you will stop associating risk with failure.
I got the question if releasing the Beta version of you contradicts aiming for being amazing, fighting average and mediocrity. It's an interesting question, but I would say, on the contrary, embracing imperfection in the Beta version means testing different approaches heading for the remarkable. It's putting our focus on action, builds reputation and makes you proud of your delivery.
A New Book Coming Is Underway.
A new book project is underway, and it will be the fifth book that I’ve written or co-written. A few more months to go to get all the material together and I’m genuinely excited about it and committed to making something great out of it. And, I’m fortunate to have brilliant Kikki Hogberg as the designer.
I will keep you posted how the work is proceeding and when the release date is coming up.
It’s Time For The Gigger 6.0
Age-discrimination in the job market is a huge problem that will not go away. We also see the growing gig-economy, and in the UK the number of freelancers is increasing most rapidly in the age span +60-65.
Why not midways in life besides your job start up a small freelance company that you could set into full action whenever you want to. Explore your reputation in your desired field, build trust and quality of life taking full control of your professional life.

Where I Can Add The Most Value To You.
From time to time I take a day off to consider what my top level goal with my work is. The one that I’m aligned to, tenacious and stubborn about – the one that makes me jump out of bed every morning. And above all - the one that adds the most value to you.
Knowing your reputation is THE dividing-line. People will buy from you, work with you, invest in you and hire you based on your reputation and the expectations that accompany it. It goes far beyond your expertise, credentials, and history. Exploring and expanding every inch of your reputation will provide you with the keys and tools that you need for your future success.
This all comes together in a Reputation Resumé, and I’m committed to making it the most critical document in your professional life. It’s an 8-page report on your reputation looking at it from all aspects. Working with a Reputation Resumé is about delivering the practical tools to Richard Branson’s words that success in life and business is entirely based on your reputation. Or Seth Godin’s statement that Your reputation has as much impact on your life as what you actually do.
Your Reputation, Business and Career.
By exploring the content of your reputation, you will become aware of everything that’s crucial for the future of your career or business. You will understand your real skills and unique qualities that create results and get a trustworthy way to introduce them. It indicates your full potential and shows the bugs that might hinder your success and how to handle them. It’s a privilege to serve in this area.
One way to start working with your reputation is first to write down what you want people to say about you when you leave an important meeting or a project and then start acting accordingly. After that, it’s time to get the real picture of how you actually are perceived by exploring your reputation. Comparing those two pictures will get you many leads on how to improve and perfect your performance.
