Earning Serendipity, 4 Skills for Creating and Sustaining Good Fortune in Your Work
(1 month)

For some people, success seems fated or shrouded in mystery. But in Earning Serendipity, Glenn Llopis will show you that most positive changes in fortune—in careers or in corporate ventures—are no mystery at all.

We all have control over the path to prosperity. Progression along that path is the result of a rare combination of skills that you can develop and apply in your career, business, and life. These four skills are

Seeing with circular vision: Broaden your observation beyond what you seek and beyond the obvious details before you, and enlarge your field of opportunities; search within conversations and adverse circumstances for possibilities.

Sowing entrepreneurial seeds: When good vision is met with consistent, hand-dirtying execution every day, the result is a stable, growing fortune; focus on proper timing and proper depth.

Growing seeds with the greatest potential: Learn how to recognize the most promising opportunities and give them the right amount of attention; don’t let the best opportunities wilt and don’t waste energy on opportunities with limited potential.

Sharing the harvest: Focus on meeting others’ needs to improve personal good fortune; make generosity part of your purpose, an integral part of the DNA of your career or company.


Those who master this quartet - tap into a power most never reach: the power to create and sustain a momentum of good fortune. This ability to earn serendipity can elevate your career or company quicker than any single force. And with the skills outlined in this book, you will be catapulted onto the path of prosperity.

My writings focus on leadership, career advancement, marketing, diversity management, entrepreneurship, and turn around operations. I focus on promoting the idea that if people embrace the immigrant mentality, they will have a distinct advantage in business and in life by being able to see and seize previously unseen opportunities, and opportunities others don’t see at all.
