In Find Your People, bestselling author Jennie Allen draws on insights from her Christian faith, science and history, and vulnerable stories from her own life to help listeners discover how to overcome the barriers to making new friends and experience the full wonder of community.
Like many business owners, renowned politician Stacey Abrams didnâ€™t start a business because she dreamed of calling herself an entrepreneur: her part-time post as a member of the Georgia House of Representatives necessitated striking out on her own. Then, Stacey and her friend Lara Hodgson launched an infrastructure advisory firm, and then another business, and then another. In Level Up, Stacey and Lara arm listeners with the confidence and know-how to overcome the obstacles that hold businesses back.
For too long, the term insubordination has evoked negative feelings and mental images. But for ideas to evolve and societies to progress, itâ€™s vital to cultivate rebels who are committed to challenging conventional wisdom and improving on it. Based on cutting-edge research, The Art of Insubordination is the essential guide for anyone seeking to be heard, make change, and create a world with more justice, creativity, and courage.
