You'll learn from daredevil Evel Knievel and cartoonist Hugh MacLeod. What motivational martial art can knock your ego on its back and propel your project forward?

In his latest book, The Proximity Principle, national radio host and career expert Ken Coleman provides a simple plan of how positioning yourself near the right people and places can help you land the job you love.

You'll discover the five people you should look for and the four best places to grow, learn, practice, and perform so you can step into the role you were created to fill.
