How to Prosper Without Being at the Top of the Class - Author Cynthia Kocialski "Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success" Virtual Book Tour Jan - March 2012

Join Author Cynthia Kocialski on her Virtual Book Tour, starting January 17, sponsored by The YP Publishing.

New Years Resolution, How to Prosper Without Being at the Top of the Class.

About The Book


In our grade-focused school years, the rules of success seemed as simple as making all As. However, in the working world, success is far more complex. Now, a self-professed over-achiever shares how her professional triumphs wildly strayed from her honor roll tactics in an eye-opening, easy-to-read compilation of truisms from the trenches of real life. Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success: How to Prosper Without Being at the Top of the Class offers hard-won wisdom on achieving professional glory that will serve as an invaluable resource to anyone who is contemplating a career, and is seeking some sound, straightforward advice on navigating the working world.

In today’s global, hypercompetitive marketplace, the rules for success have changed dramatically. Inspired by the experience of her own daughters in school and her work with start-up companies and entrepreneurs, Kocialski realized that many young adults graduate completely unaware of a new playing field that no one has bothered to tell them about—and that is not always predicated by superior grades or talents. In eighteen concise and revelatory chapters, the author draws from her own professional achievements and challenges to debunk common myths that can lead astray aspiring professionals in their early years of forging a career. From the overemphasis of “practice makes perfect” to the often parroted insistence that winning doesn’t matter, Kocialski provides straight facts, anecdotes, and examples that will enable any individual who truly wants to succeed to launch their career on solid footing.“

Read the Review



"If you're inspired to make a great living by doing what you love - then this is the book for you. It packed with insights about discovering your passion, nurturing your talents, developing valuable life skills, achieving your goals and most importantly actually living your dreams. Cynthia Kocialski shares her many years experience in the corporate world as well as her own personal achievements to reveal the 'keys' to life success. You don't have to be a grade A student - but you do have to read and apply the ideas in this book - if you want to create a life you love!"
Reviewed by Dr Rosina McAlpine, Director Inspired Children www.inspiredchildren.com


"If every high school student could have access to this book our emphasis on test scores would diminish and the number of happy and successful students graduating and entering life would increase significantly. This is a sound book for any age group - it just takes a bit of ingrained realignment to discover that you deserve a successful happy life! Read the full review here." Reviewed by Grady Harp,  Amazon Classic Reviewer

 "Cynthia Kocialski has written a caring guide for teenagers or for anyone who is seeking more success in life in general. This book explains how you should focus on your talents, raise your expectations and not give up the first time you try something new. Cynthia Kocialski also makes a good point about how none of us really achieve success all on our own. There is always a team of people supporting us in our endeavors. This guide also explains how the future is unpredictable. There is a discussion on healthy ideas about money, true friendship and why appearances matter. Overall this is a good guide that will lead the reader to good conclusions and practices. The truth is that after a student reads this book they will probably get better grades."
