What a week!
It looks like we are finally getting through with mainstream business thinking about the power and the essential nature of reinvention.
First, we got featured in Forbes (say what?!) - which has unceremoniously announced that "Reinvention is THE new game in town":
What is so important and monumental is that this mainstream publication finally gets the key point we are trying to drive home for some time now - that volatility is here to stay and change can no longer be treated as a one-time project:
"Executives in such businesses seeking to improve their chances of survival might do well to study a timely new book by self-styled 'chief reinvention officer' Nadya Zhexembayeva. “How To Thrive In Chaos” is an easily-accessible, large-format book that is subtitled “The chief reinvention officer handbook” and as such is filled with lessons and steps to take to embrace success in an era of change. But perhaps the most powerful message is that “change is no longer a project.” As Zhexembayeva says, 'The challenge we face isn’t about trying to survive until things stabilize, but rather about learning to thrive in constant chaos.'"

If a major boost from Forbes was not enough, we also showed up in an amazing podcast episode geared specifically to entrepreneurs hosted by the amazing Brandon Lucero, who is my own mentor in the field of marketing (yes, I do enroll in courses every few months to stay sharp and relevant).
We talk about how in this century of disruption, it is crucial to always be thinking of what will work next - not what worked in the past. We also discuss letting go of past success to operate at a higher level and allow yourself to stand out before others in your niche because as more people enter the online space, standing out is more important than ever.
