Concord, North Carolina – A+ Results, Xlibris and Tom Sheppard are proud to offer the latest work from Tom Sheppard, “Fire Yourself: Get the Job You Want A No BS Guide,” available on, ( and at fine bookstores everywhere.

Fire Yourself is a compelling how-to guide focused on helping people get and keep the job they want regardless of current employment conditions.

With unemployment rates higher than at any time since the Great Depression, everyone needs an edge to  stay employed or to get a job during these difficult times.  As a veteran of layoffs, mergers, acquisitions, downsizing and right sizing, Tom Sheppard knows how to navigate these rough waters in ways that actually results in promotions and pay raises.
If you or someone you know needs a job, this book will teach them how to find a job that meets their needs.  If you or someone you know wants to get a better job than the one they have now, but is afraid or doesn’t know how to do that without risking their current job, this book will teach you how to manage your career through all sorts of dangers to get you to the job you want.

The author has gone more than 26 years without a single day of unemployment even though he made more than a dozen voluntary and involuntary job changes during that same time.  Now, he is teaching you his proven approach to get and keep the job you want.

The author has been invited by Fortune 500 companies and small businesses to teach his methods to their employees.  This book is the first time he has made this information available to the general public.
