This week at YEC, we wanted to celebrate two members who are publishing exciting new books. Through a social enterprise manifesto and a collection of "cheat codes," these members are sharing valuable insights to help other entrepreneurs get inspired and get ahead.
1. Matthew Manos Releases Book, "Toward a Preemptive Social Enterprise"
"Toward a Preemptive Social Enterprise" is a manifesto and collection of essays that will inspire a new generation of social entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders to move from reaction to strategic foresight.
"A preemptive social enterprise is the opposite of a reactive social enterprise, the norm of socially responsible innovation," says Matthew in the company's press release. "While it is crucial that the social sector continues to react to the problems of today, we advocate for the integration of strategic foresight in that practice. Through this book, we have revealed reaction as a critical shortcoming in the practice of social entrepreneurship."
The book includes a foreword by Stuart Candy, essays by Matthew Manos, a timeline of the history of social entrepreneurship and much more.
The digital book was released on August 1, and the print book will be released in mid-September.

2. Brian Wong Releasing Book, "The Cheat Code"
Brian, who graduated from college at age 18 and started his global mobile advertising company before the age of 25, believes that doing things just a bit differently is what leads to success. "The Cheat Code" is a collection of tips on how to get ahead of the competition by going slightly off script.
"It's like 'The Da Vinci Code,' but better," says Brian. "All jokes aside, it's what it sounds like - a modern collection of 'cheat codes' for our personal and business lives - just like cheat codes helped us jump levels and beat enemies in our video games growing up."
With a total of 71 cheat codes, including "know your superpower," "use exclamation points," "don't ask - announce," and many more, this book is full of helpful tips for entrepreneurs looking for shortcuts to success.
The book is scheduled to be released in September.
