On Accelerate! Now: Episode 50 with Jim Keenan. Not Taught: What It Takes to be Successful in the 21st Century that Nobody’s Teaching You. Part 1.

Jim Keenan, otherwise known as Keenan, is A Sales Guy, a widely read blogger and the author of a new book, Not Taught: What It Takes to be Successful in the 21st Century that Nobody’s Teaching You. In this episode, which is Part 1 of my extended conversation with Keenan, we talk about his new playbook for success in the 21st century. He describes how the conventional career rules that we all have been taught, have become obsolete. It doesn’t matter which generation you’re part of or what stage of your career you’re at, if you’re not listening to Keenan’s recommendations for taking charge of your own success, then you’re going to fall behind. This is a must listen episode. And come back next week and listen to Part 2 of our conversation.
