A Guide to Maximizing Your Career and Enriching Your Life
The “Greatest Hits” from Dan Weedin and his sidekick, Captain Jack the Pirate Dog.
This is a compilation of the best of Dan’s weekly missives, Extra Points and his Weedin 360 blog. Captain Jack is a noted writer himself, gaining greater attention and fanfare than his human. This “best of the best” compilation also includes several “never before seen” articles and anecdotes under the title, Fresh Fish.
The book will provide you with perspective, inspiration, humor, and pragmatic advise to help you both professionally and personally. Whether you’re a business leader or a leader in your own home, this book will help you grow in your career and enrich your life. You’ll laugh, you’ll smile; you’ll think; you might even be annoyed, and I doubt you’ll cry. In the end, you will be better off for having read it!
But don’t take Captain Jack and Dan’s word for it. This is what others have to say…
“This book has arrived at a great time for you, because no matter what stage of growth you currently occupy, Dan will help you to grow further and faster. He creates positive change with positive psychology, but also creates sustainable results through the mastery of the skills and behaviors required for ongoing success. Make no mistake, this isn’t a “self-help” book. You need Dan’s help, as so many others have.”

“Many of us have some shackles on us preventing us from acting quickly or accurately at times. Using the metaphor of a leashed versus an unleashed dog, Dan provides numerous insights into planning for and managing crises in a business. Dogs can smell things and hear things we cannot. Good business people have a similar sense for opportunity and danger, the very definition of crisis. Dan’s background in insurance and risk management comes through with fun anecdotes and sound advice. Dan gives you the key to unlock the handcuffs, unleashing your leadership potential.”

“Unleashed Leadership is a go-to resource for those looking for leadership ‘inspiration’. As Dan says in his book, ‘It’s one thing to inspire yourself. It’s quite another to inspire others.’ Dan’s book is a great roadmap for taking charge of your life and your career and becoming the leader you envision becoming. Pick out any chapter and learn something about yourself and what you need to do to unleash your own ‘significant’ leadership.”

“Dan’s book Unleashed Leadership was very valuable to me as a small business owner. There are many stresses in running a business. Dan’s book helped me with dealing with those stresses more effectively. He reminded me of those important aspects of managing employees that were forgotten. Specifically, he offered easy to implement tools and techniques for working with employees help set back on track that which had gone off course. I recommend it for any business owner.”

“Dan Weedin is a rare guy who instinctively finds quick answers to tough issues. I trust him implicitly, and I rarely make that statement. He has the ability to get to the heart of impactful issues.”
