Finding happiness in your career is similar to the quest of finding the right partner in life. Sometimes, it pays not just to look for the one that you love, but one that also loves you back.

Or can we have both? Are we working to live or are we living to work? This book is your ultimate wingman on how to balance success at work and happiness in life.

A leader is faced with many challenges and tests in the course of his corporate and business career–from office politics, power play, loss of passion, and the temptation to resort to unethical business practices in order to get ahead. Some people are so hungry for success that they would do anything to get it even at the expense of their personal values.

But do you really need to be heartless to get to the top? If you can’t beat the system, do you really have to join them?

This book tells the story of four young leaders who, as they journey along the corporate path, discover the valuable lessons they need to learn to succeed with their integrity intact.

Using fictional storytelling to illustrate the different kinds of leaders in the corporate world and part workbook, Standout will help you become the leader you are called to be, the orange among the apples–a champion leader with a heart.

People who make lots of money don’t work hard. They set the ball rolling and wealth simply accumulates. They let their money work for them. For the author, the combination of a book, a game, a woman, and an opportunity helped him get out of the rat race onto the fast track. Discover why most Pinoys are poor and the secrets of the rich Tsinoys.
