    I am loving Flux. It’s got me reassessing my relationship to ongoing change and who and how I want be as I move through life. Constant change has never been optional, but these days I feel much more deeply called upon to find my strength in flow. Flux is becoming both a practical and spiritual guide.

    Amazing book. So timeless and timely at once. April uses her long broad and deep experience scouting the world, people, cultures and places, to distill the essence of what we need to navigate our fluid, uncertain, sometimes scary and sometimes exciting world that we live in. It's structured on themes, or superpowers, but also around stories and real examples. It also comes with questions to reflect at the end of each chapter. Bonus, the audiobook is narrated by her 😀.

    This book is a shining light of how future thinkers, tomorrow leaders and global citizens can rewrite the "old script" passed down to us from the previous generations and a great complement (or evolution) to the growth mindset. April's Flux has undoubtedly encouraged me, a young professional and entrepreneur myself, to continue blazing my own path and writing my own script - all while respecting the old script, constantly rethinking various future scenarios and being kind to our surroundings. Ea This book is a shining light of how future thinkers, tomorrow leaders and global citizens can rewrite the "old script" passed down to us from the previous generations and a great complement (or evolution) to the growth mindset. April's Flux has undoubtedly encouraged me, a young professional and entrepreneur myself, to continue blazing my own path and writing my own script - all while respecting the old script, constantly rethinking various future scenarios and being kind to our surroundings. Easily the best book I've read this year and the book that I would recommend to my family, closest friends and colleagues, especially those younger ones. Read one yourself, add this new mindset to your lexicon and don't miss out the newly-forming flux generation.

    Prior to reading this book, I just thought it was going to be another corny self-help book, but that’s definitely not the case. April Rinne nails it with this book, and I can’t think of a single person who wouldn’t benefit from it. Part of the human experience is that we struggle with accepting change because we’re control freaks. But what if we learned how to not only accept change but to embrace it? April shares her personal experience of losing both of her parents in a car accident and how sh Prior to reading this book, I just thought it was going to be another corny self-help book, but that’s definitely not the case. April Rinne nails it with this book, and I can’t think of a single person who wouldn’t benefit from it. Part of the human experience is that we struggle with accepting change because we’re control freaks. But what if we learned how to not only accept change but to embrace it? April shares her personal experience of losing both of her parents in a car accident and how she’s developed what she calls a “flux mindset”. In this book, she provides the reader with 8 practical tools for learning how to stay flexible and work with change in your life. If you struggle with your relationship with change, you need this book. The unexpected happens to all of us, and the worst thing we can do is not know how to adapt. April has not only adopted this mindset to her own life, but she’s helped many others as well. April has traveled around the world and seen how different people and cultures deal with change, and she pulls from all of these experiences to help the reader live a better life regardless of the unexpected challenges they face.

    The Flux Mindset finally puts a framework around all the things I've most valued in both my personal and professional lives! April Rinne gives names and structure to the superpowers I've developed from raising children of color, from building a portfolio career, from dealing with both my parents deaths during COVID and so much more. I feel seen knowing there is a tribe on this journey of "Flux as a practice." And I'm pretty sure coddiwomple is my all-time favorite word!

    April Rinne’s book Flux is fantastic and could not have come a better time in all of our lives. Change and uncertainty are around every corner these days. Flux demystifies your relationship with change and the journey through the 8 superpowers will help you reshape how you deal with and respond to change. I will read this book again. I will have my kids read this book. I will have my friends read this book. This world needs to read Flux.

    "If I were to die tomorrow, what would the world need me to do today?" "What would make you, you if you were stripped of all of your priviledge...or your possessions?" This airplane-ride-quick read includes a fantastic set of core questions surrounded by enough personal juice and guidance to provide self-introspection. I especially like the combination of business ideas, career goals, Personal well- being, meditation, and yoga combined into one book of many perspectives.

    Flux provides a fascinating new roadmap for embracing uncertainty, reorienting ourselves in times of change, and navigating an increasingly fluid and complex world - without taking you too far astray as a reader. It is an essential (and accessible) guide for young leaders seeking to forge their own path, flip the conventional script upside-down, and design a life with purpose and meaning!

    April Rinne’s brilliant book helps us meet this zeitgeist moment in the precarious, fragile human story. It is comforting to know there are concrete and immeasurable ways to get through pain and disorientation with wisdom, courage, and transformation from the inside out.

    A very fresh and surprisingly personal look at how to transition from fearing change to embracing, being comfortable with, and even benefitting from dramatic shifts in life and work.

    April Rinne brilliantly weaves her powerful life's journey into a beautiful tapestry of wisdom and insights on how we might best navigate an increasingly dizzying world. She elevates a new vocabulary around embracing change, discovering stillness, and what is enough. I found her dive into the future of work and "portfolio careers" particularly resonating, as I myself explore multiple streams of work in service of our changing climate and environment.
