About April Rinne and the Flux Mindset

April Rinne is an advisor, speaker, author, and global citizen focused on bringing insight, access, and perspective to people and organizations worldwide. She helps individuals and organizations navigate changes and shifts that occur both in our personal lives and throughout the economy. FLUX: 8 Superpowers for Thriving in Constant Change, explores how we see, think, struggle with, and form relationships with change and develop a Flux Mindset. The Flux Mindset is about viewing changes as an opportunity and not as a threat. By adjusting our perspective and reevaluating how we see the changes occurring, we can navigate those changing events and respond better to current and future trends. 

Rinne outlines 8 "superpowers" in her book:

  1. Run Slower
  2. See what's Invisible
  3. Get Lost
  4. Start with Trust
  5. Know your "Enough"
  6. Create your Portfolio Career
  7. Be all the more Human (and serve other humans)
  8. Let go of the Future
