This Kickstarter campaign was created for engineers with two goals...

Number one, to give you as an engineer a mindset and a framework that can help you to be successful in the future because what has helped us as engineers to get to where we are today will not work moving forward with the complex projects and changing technology of the future. 

The second reason for this campaign is because many of our subscribers, readers and listeners want to enroll in our coaching courses and workshops, but at this point in their careers, they don't have the resources to do so, therefore through this campaign we are making these products and services available for a limited time at lower prices. 

Here’s how you can take advantage of this opportunity…

Firstly, let me take a minute to tell you about The Business of Engineering. The Business of Engineering is not only a book, it's a mindset for the engineer of the future. In the book that we'd like to offer you, there's a framework for developing this mindset.  I've been hosting several podcasts for engineers for years now and I've been grateful to have many great guests and listeners. One of our listeners, Matt Loos, who is an engineer in Texas, reached out to me not long ago, and told me that he was inspired in his career to write a book on everything that he's seen in his career and what he has noticed that has made engineers successful in today's atmosphere. 

He sent me a chapter and asked me if I could provide him advice on how to publish it. When I read the chapter, I said, "Matt send me more!" And I eventually read the entire book and I said, “Matt, it's unbelievable that you wrote this book at such a young age. I think the information is invaluable to engineers at all experience levels, especially students, interns and recent graduates. And we'd like to publish it through EMI” --  and that's what we're attempting to do through this Kickstarter campaign and you'll get to meet Matt over the coming weeks through some podcasts and videos that we've shot with him around the content in the book.

Matt reached out to me on LinkedIn asking for some advice on publishing the book.

The second goal of this campaign is to..

get you as an engineer or an engineering firm, some of our products and services that can help you and your team at affordable prices. If you’re a student watching this, you can get the business of engineering book plus our proven resume and interview course setting you up for early career success, If you're a recent graduate, you can get our goal setting and decision making course with the book, If you're a manager or soon to be manager, you can get our engineering management accelerator online workshop in your bundle. And if you’re an engineering company looking to boost your staff’s morale, you can order multiple copies of this book for your intern program or your recent graduates at a discounted price through the campaign. 

I know from practicing as an engineer myself...

and from coaching and training thousands of engineers over the years, that technical skills alone and even a basic level of soft skills aren't enough to help you be a leader in this field, especially during this 4th industrial revolution that we are experiencing.

Yes I practiced as an engineer...a long time ago!
Yes I practiced as an engineer...a long time ago!

But what Matt Loos has laid out in his book, in the way of advice and practical frameworks, combined with some of the programs that we've created, you can differentiate yourself in the field and become the best engineer you can be. 

This opportunity is available for a very limited time and we won't offer these prices again. So we're asking for your support to help Matt get his book published and out there because I believe it has a strong message and we’re asking you to invest in yourself by taking advantage of this opportunity because I believe by doing so, you'll put yourself on the path to long term success in your engineering career. 

Please join us…

Very Truly Yours,

Anthony Fasano, P.E. -- President & CEO of the Engineering Management Institute

Meet the Author...Matthew K. Loos, P.E.

Matt's an engineer just like you and me, but he decided to pay close attention to what successful engineers were doing, he wrote everything down, organized the content into easy-to-implement frameworks, and with your help, we want to publish it in a book and send it to you!

You'll hear from Matt through an upcoming podcast and some videos throughout the campaign.

Here's Matt and I recording a soon to be published podcast episode where he tells his story...

Risks and challenges

We expect that the book will be published and available by end of July, but we are using August as our deliverable deadline to give us one month cushion but still to be able to get the books to companies that might want to gift them to interns over the summer.

All EMI courses are ready, so even if there was a delay in the The Business of Engineering book production, we would be able to deliver courses sooner.

Thank you for your support!
