Silicon Valley-based Business and Leadership Expert Hosts AMA On Launch Day of his New Book

Silicon Valley, CA (PRUnderground) October 8th, 2015

Fox Business and Entrepreneur columnist Steve Tobak will answer questions on business, leadership, and careers live on Periscope on the launch day of his new book, Real Leaders Don’t Follow: Being Extraordinary in the Age of the Entrepreneur. Participants can send questions via Twitter by following @stevetobak and using the #RealLeaders hashtag between now and the live-streaming event on Tuesday, October 13th, from 4 to 5 p.m. PST (7 to 8 p.m. EST).

As a Silicon Valley-based management consultant and long-time senior executive with several high-profile public companies and startups that achieved successful IPOs, Tobak played a role in the rise of the technology revolution from its genesis back in the 80s. And yet, he cautions that “the digital age is turning us into voyeurs instead of doers. Don’t waste your life following someone else’s.”

Drawing upon decades of personal experience with hundreds of successful CEOs, VCs, and entrepreneurs, Real Leaders Don’t Follow is a resounding wake-up call for today’s and tomorrow’s entrepreneurs and business leaders. Its hard-hitting insights and provocative perspective shatter conventional groupthink and expose the myriad of myths and fads masquerading as common business wisdom.

“Every emerging or veteran leader can take away powerful lessons from this book,” said Doug Mack, CEO of Fanatics and former CEO of One Kings Lane.

Legendary serial entrepreneur Philippe Kahn said, “Anyone interested in running a company – high-tech or otherwise – will treasure Steve Tobak’s book. It provides new insights that clearly spell out what it takes to be successful in a competitive world.”

Talent Zoo founder Rick Myers said, “This book is spot on for today’s business climate. Steve’s incisive analysis of the ‘wantrepreneur’ craze is a refreshingly honest, well-informed read.”
