You don’t have to be an extraordinary student to get fellowships and pursue your passions. All it takes is strategic planning and a fellowship-writing skillset. "Funded!" tells the story of how an average student went on to win a Fulbright among other scholarships, fellowships, and grants to travel the world and pay for her Ivy League education. It includes breakout boxes with anecdotes from past fellows’ experiences, stories from the field, and advice from mentors. Exercise sheets are sprinkled throughout the text for you to practice and note your ideas as you go. As a step-by-step guide taking you from the phase of dreaming about your project all the way to finding the right fellowship and preparing your application, Funded! makes the process manageable by breaking it into steps that anyone can follow. If you are looking for an inspiring career or want to activate a dormant passion in your work, Funded! will teach you the foundational skills to become the change agent you want to be. It is geared toward individuals who are starting their careers and those who have a vision of setting out to do their own thing. Do you want to take time off from your regular job or even switch your career? Adding a grant, scholarship, or fellowship to your resume can only help your future. "Funded!" tells you how to become the competitive applicant that these scholarship committees look for, including tips from actual Fulbright reviewers. "Funded!" has the feeling of a popular novel, the type of book you’d read on a sunny Sunday as a treat for completing all your chores; yet it is a powerful tool that will leave you with a product to be proud of and a cache of motivation to carry you through to winning the fellowship of your dreams.

So Good They Can t Ignore You

In an unorthodox approach, Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice, and sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do. Not only are pre-existing passions rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work, but a focus on passion over skill can be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping. Spending time with organic farmers, venture capitalists, screenwriters, freelance computer programmers, and others who admitted to deriving great satisfaction from their work, Newport uncovers the strategies they used and the pitfalls they avoided in developing their compelling careers. Matching your job to a pre-existing passion does not matter, he reveals. Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before. In other words, what you do for a living is much less important than how you do it. With a title taken from the comedian Steve Martin, who once said his advice for aspiring entertainers was to "be so good they can't ignore you," Cal Newport's clearly written manifesto is mandatory reading for anyone fretting about what to do with their life, or frustrated by their current job situation and eager to find a fresh new way to take control of their livelihood. He provides an evidence-based blueprint for creating work you love, and will change the way you think about careers, happiness, and the crafting of a remarkable life.

To get the best answer-in business, in life-you have to ask the best possible question. Innovation expert Warren Berger shows that ability is both an art and a science. It may be the most underappreciated tool at our disposal, one we learn to use well in infancy-and then abandon as we grow older. Critical to learning, innovation, success, even to happiness-yet often discouraged in our schools and workplaces-it can unlock new business opportunities and reinvent industries, spark creative insights at many levels, and provide a transformative new outlook on life. It is the ability to question-and to do so deeply, imaginatively, and "beautifully.Â?? In this fascinating exploration of the surprising power of questioning, innovation expert Warren Berger reveals that powerhouse businesses like Google, Nike, and Netflix, as well as hot Silicon Valley startups like Pandora and Airbnb, are fueled by the ability to ask fundamental, game-changing questions. But Berger also shares human stories of people using questioning to solve everyday problems-from "How can I adapt my career in a time of constant change?Â?? to "How can I step back from the daily rush and figure out what really makes me happy?Â?? By showing how to approach questioning with an open, curious mind and a willingness to work through a series of "Why,Â?? "What if,Â?? and "HowÂ?? queries, Berger offers an inspiring framework of how we can all arrive at better solutions, fresh possibilities, and greater success in business and life.

Jumpstart Your Career and Personal Life! The key to achieving true success in life is to master that delicate balance between making money and making meaning. Marketing executive and best selling author, Robert Michael Fried, shows how the same principles you use to accomplish success at work can also help you realize your personal goals, dreams and aspirations. Fried provides a practical yet passionately purpose-driven roadmap that will enable you to heed your true calling to become a truly successful person in every sense of the word. The author underscores that true success goes beyond just getting what you want... it's also wanting what you get. Igniting Your True Purpose and Passion will take you on an uplifting journey of self-discovery. It will empower you to re-invent your personal brand and close the disparity or gap between who you are and who you dream of becoming. The book urges you to make it your business to ignite your true purpose and passion while seizing the opportunity to become an entrepreneur of your own existence. Built upon and expanded from his best-selling book, A Marketing Plan For Life, the author reminds us that the purpose of life should be a life of purpose. In emphasizing his philosophy, Fried writes, "I'll tell you what unhappiness is... unhappiness is not knowing what you want and killing yourself to get it." This insightful and thought-provoking read will not only inspire you to clearly define what you want but it will help you make both meaning and money - not just for yourself but for others. That's what Ralph Waldo Emerson meant when he said, "To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - that is to have succeeded."
