"Get Out of My Head is a lifeline for overwhelmed professionals seeking direction and tranquility in turbulent times, whether navigating daily stressors or experiencing defining moments. Author M. Andrew McConnell, CEO of RENTED, INC., shows you it's possible to achieve clarity, make good decisions, and rise in your career, by illustrating that the human mind is not unlike real estate: adopting an owner's mindset can make all the difference"-- Provided by publisher.
Andrew McConnellâs story is not your typical Silicon Valley fairytale. Born in Birmingham, AL, he was raised in a neighborhood built on a former tobacco field, population ~50,000. Through Stoicism and Southern grit, he managed to graduate Harvard College, Harvard Law School, and University of Cambridge with honors, all while becoming a member of the USA Open Water Swimming National Team, and earning an international Bronze Medal in the process. Entering the work world, Andrew took a while to find his footing, bouncing from banker (Merrill Lynch), to attorney (Eversheds Sutherland), to consultant (McKinsey & Co.), before finally striking out on his own.
By deploying the ancient philosophy of Stoicism, Andrew McConnell eventually tookÂ the company he founded, Rented.com, from less than $200,000 in revenue to nearlyÂ $10 million in under three years, a 50X increase. Today, Rented.com is a two-timeÂ Inc. 500 winner, with more than $25 million raised. Andrew has tracked this perilousÂ journey as a regular contributor to Inc., Forbes, USA Today, Huffington Post, Betterment, Skift, and Curbed, where his writings on Stoicism, the access economy, and the highs and lows of contemporary work-life find an eager audience of thousands of readers.Â Still, in true Stoic fashion, Andrewâs commitment to making an impact has alwaysÂ extended beyond business. Heâs a Board Member of Georgiaâs oldest charity,Â Sheltering Arms, a founding Board Member of Atlanta Technology Leaders, and aÂ TechStars Mentor for Social Impact Startups. Heâs also an attendee of the invite-onlyÂ Yale CEO Summit as well as the Renaissance Weekend conference attended byÂ astronauts, past-presidents of the US, Supreme Court Justices, and other world-classÂ thought leaders. His drive to share encouragement, resources, understanding, andÂ techniques have led to the creation of this book.
