Book Description

Jan. 10 2008

Around the world, thousands of people who've found success in their chosen careers are getting the call to do something more with their lives--to give something back to a world in desperate need of their help. And you don't have to be a billionaire to do so. You can be an ordinary person, like:

Melissa Dyrdahl, who left her job as senior vice president of marketing at Adobe Systems to create Bring Light, Inc., a nonprofit Web site that offers a revolutionary new way for connecting donors with hundreds of charities.

Rocco Rossi, a top Canadian executive and entrepreneur, who experienced a rude awaking in his late 30s that led to him becoming CEO of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.

Chef Jamie Kennedy, who knew that there was something deeply crazy--and completely unsustainable--about the way restaurants source ingredients. He is now leading the movement toward local, sustainable cuisine.

These are just three of the many unsung heroes of the New Radicals movement. Bestselling author Julia Moulden, a consultant who counsels clients in search of more meaningful career paths, helps you determine if you are ready to follow their example, and offers her expert guidance on how to make the transition into your new life.

Julia describes the three main paths to becoming a New Radical-Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Activism. And she helps you to

  • Understand your motivations
  • Determine what skills you can leverage
  • Identify the options that are open to you
  • Envision your new role and establish realistic goals
  • Create an action plan for embarking on your new life

You don't have to be a Richard Branson, Warren Buffett, or Al Gore to make the world a better place. With Moulden's guidance, you can transform how you earn your daily bread and make a real difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Place To Start Feb. 6 2008
Format:Hardcover
I just finished reading "We Are The New Radicals" and if you are in your middle years and searching for a new, more meaningful beginning, I do recommend this book.

The bulk of the book is largely inspirational stories, interviews etc., drawing on examples of people from all walks of life who transformed their lives from a career to something they felt passionate about. Its more "Hero With A Thousand Faces" than "What Color Is Your Parachute". I like that about this book because this path is intuitive rather than cognitive and stories are more relevant to the process than facts and figures.

The final 25 pages of the book however do provide you with a workbook to help with the process of self-reflection if you are ready to make this kind of change in your life. Again I appreciate that because without it many readers would be left encouraged but with little direction as to where to look to find the path.

The book is written in a light, almost conversational style, including the workbook section which makes it accessible and in my opinion makes the idea seem less difficult and unusual than we might currently feel it to be.

I can speak with some authority regarding the process the book advocates as I went through my own radical transformation prior to reading it. My process was remarkably similar to the one proposed in the book and I consulted many of the same resources. I bought it to help me work with friends of mine who are feeling the urge to find more meaningful work but are not clear as to exactly what they should do. Some structure around this process really does help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Meaningful Book Feb. 15 2008
By A. Jha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I have been lucky to be mentored by someone who is mentioned in this book and inherited some of his ideas - so in some ways I was bound to love the concept of this book. I liked the examples Julia has used as they are very relevant and real, and go along well with what the book his about. I specially enjoyed he writing style.
3.0 out of 5 stars A Distraction from Real Issues Dec 26 2013
By William H. DuBay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
While social entrepreneurship is certainly to be encouraged, this book fails to put it into the context of larger social issues. In fact, it avoids the political realities that surround both entrepreneurship, poverty, and other social problems.

The author suggests that private entrepreneurship is a healthy followup on the social radicalism of the 60s a 70s. It can also be seen as a sellout by those who are burned out by the immensity of the challenge of political reform, say campaign-finance control.

As a result, the projects and activities of the well motivated people she writes about seem to be treating more of the symptoms than the causes of the problems that engulf us, poverty, unemployment, inequalities in school funding, and the still increasing gap between the rich and the poor.

The author seems to be oblivious of the privileged position from which many of her entrepreneurs came from. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, for instance both came from upper-middle-class families and neighborhoods that were the creation of big government programs coming from FDR's New Deal and the Second World War. The recent decline in the middle class resulting from neo-liberal politics does not bode well for healthy entrepreneurship in this country.

It is to the advantage of the corporate ruling class in our country to propagate the myth that private entrepreneurs will save our economy and save the environment. Of course, they will make a substantial contribution. But that contribution will not be anywhere sufficient to overcome the problems we face.

That will require the people of the nation acting together in campaign finance reform, raising the minimum wage, education equality for all children, and a more equitable tax system. It is a big load, but we must all shoulder it, including the entrepreneurs among us.
2.0 out of 5 stars Another Writer latching on to what is popular Aug. 10 2013
By Rena - Published on Amazon.com
It's one thing being an activist; quite another simply writing about it. I put the book down after reading the first chapter and skimming the rest of the book. It came off as just another writer cashing in on what is popular. As well, I didn't like the done-to-death "chicken soup" series formula she was using (moralistic and preachy).
