  • I Hope This Email Finds You Never


    Ahhh, the modern workplace: a cauldron of stress and anxiety. From the moment we accept a new role, we’re thrown into a world of competing personalities, shifting protocols, and an endless stream of emails, Slack messages, and Zoom calls, all of which serve to distract us from the things we truly want to be doing, like eating Thai food and sleeping until noon.

    I Hope This Email Finds You Never puts aside the motivational screeds, productivity hacks, and pop-science, and focuses instead on those things in the workplace that truly cause us grief–like a coworker eating an apple during a video call–in a lighthearted, entertaining, and (most importantly) cynical way.

    Some things you’ll learn:

    *How long you can get away with being “new” until you’re held accountable
    *How to make it look like you’re sorry without giving up any power
    *How to find a workplace friend and make a workplace enemy
    *Camera position: how to set up your laptop for maximum dominance
    *Organizing your calendar while leaving time to cry
    *The rules of the kitchen (stealing someone’s yogurt is literally a crime)
    *Writing a letter of resignation when you’ve already been resigned from day one

    From Orientation (The Descent), Workplace Etiquette (No Eye Contact Before 11 AM), Working Remotely (Wink Wink), Coworkers (Getting Along with your fellow inmates), and everything in between, I Hope This Email Finds You Never is your must-have guide to surviving (thriving is not realistic) in the modern workplace.

  • Next American Economy


    One of America’s greatest success stories is its economy. For over a century, it has been the envy of the world. The opportunity it generates has inspired millions of people to want to become American.

    Today, however, America’s economy is at a crossroads. Many have lost confidence in the country’s commitment to economic liberty. Across the political spectrum, many want the government to play an even greater role in the economy via protectionism, industrial policy, stakeholder capitalism, or even quasi-socialist policies. Numerous American political and business leaders are embracing these ideas, and traditional defenders of markets have struggled to respond to these challenges in fresh ways. Then there is a resurgent China bent on eclipsing the United States’s place in the world. At stake is not only the future of the world’s biggest economy, but the economic liberty that remains central to America’s identity as a nation.

    But managed decline and creeping statism do not have to be America’s only choices, let alone its destiny. For this book insists that there is an alternative. And that is a vibrant market economy grounded on entrepreneurship, competition, and trade openness, but embedded in what America’s founding generation envisaged as the United States’s future: a dynamic Commercial Republic that takes freedom, commerce, and the common good of all Americans seriously, and allows America as a sovereign-nation to pursue and defend its interests in a dangerous world without compromising its belief in the power of economic freedom.

  • Microsoft Story : How The Tech Giant Rebooted Its Culture, Upgraded Its Str


    Imagine if you could see the playbook that returned a struggling tech empire to the top of the tech leaderboard. The Microsoft Story will help you understand and adopt the competitive strategies, workplace culture, and daily business practices that enabled the tech company to once again become a leading tech innovator.

    It wasn’t so long ago that Microsoft and its Windows operating system dominated the tech industry so much so that they faced antitrust charges for what was perceived by many to be predatory, monopolistic practices. Less than a decade later, the tide had turned and Microsoft lost its dominance in the personal tech marketplace amidst the launch of the iPhone, the rise of Google, and the cloud computing phenomenon.
    But, now, Microsoft is back on top. The company’s value is soaring and once again Microsoft is being recognized as a tech leader once again. What changed?

    Since Satya Nadella took over as CEO, the company has gone through significant changes. The company culture has become one of creativity and innovation, no longer requiring that all products revolve around Windows. The company has reevaluated their business lines, getting rid of underperforming initiatives such as smartphones, and focused on the area of growth where the company excelled: the cloud.

    Through the story of Microsoft, you’ll learn:

    *How to build a nimble company culture that supports innovation and growth.

    *How to return a forgotten brand to the spotlight.

    *How to recognize and build upon successful business lines, while letting go of underperforming initiatives.

    *When to change the entire way you do business.

    *And much, much more.

    Learn success secrets from original remote work pioneers on the mindset and strategies they developed to build and grow successful organizations from the ground up.

    With the unprecedented rise in remote work due to the pandemic, many businesses have struggled with how to effectively transition to a distributed format. Meanwhile, companies who had always been remote-first had a unique advantage: a highly scalable set of work processes, a unique communication style, and the proper “async mindset” required to succeed without an office.

    This groundbreaking guide unlocks the secrets and the lessons discovered by those pioneer entrepreneurs and founders who have figured out how to harness the async mindset and grow their businesses remotely in the most the seamless, freeing, and cost-effective ways.

    Once you accept and master some fundamental differences, remote work can fuel higher productivity, eliminate time-wasting meetings and treacherous commutes, and strip away the ugly politics that often undermine the most talented employees. It also leads to great cultural inclusivity and richer cultural exchange.

    Running Remote is for ventures of all stripes–companies small and large, one-person operations, mom-and-pop shops, and global mega-corporations. The lessons herein are as valuable for on-premises organizations as they are for the tech worker.

    Readers will:

    *Master the fundamentals of the async mindset by exploring three overarching principles–deliberate overcommunication, democratized workflow, and detailed metrics.

    *Learn nuts-and-bolts techniques and real-life lessons from remote work trailblazers who built successful all-remote organizations prior to the pandemic.

    *Gain a better understanding of why hiring, on-ramping, and managing in a remote context is totally different–again with methods and first-hand stories from the founders and leaders that did it first.

  • We Should All Be Millionaires


    Dedicated to a reality in which every woman has at least seven zeros in her bank account, author and experienced entrepreneur Rachel Rodgers offers this pull-no-punches guide for women to wield economic power-how real change is created.

    Every single woman should want to be a millionaire. If you agree, this book is for you. If you disagree, this book is definitely for you.

    While women now own 40% of businesses in the U.S., the percentage of revenue brought in by women-owned businesses is only 4.2%. And, while the gender pay gap isn’t quite that extreme, corporate women are making four percent less than their male counterparts, and women hold only 25% of c-suite positions. Now that women are getting a seat at the table, it’s time they demand what they deserve.

    This book:
    *Represents a breakthrough step-by-step guide for women who want to shift their mindset and work their way to seven figures.

    *Reveals the unique hurdles businesswomen face that their male peers do not, both in the office and at home, showing how to leap each and every one.

    *Is a clarion call for all women who are done having their work undervalued, are tired of being sexually harassed in the workplace, and are ready for a revolution that starts with the mindset outlined in these pages.

    If women are going to make demands, they need capital. So, it’s time for women to turn towards their money. To begin to focus on their earning potential and their ability to generate wealth. To begin stepping up into their own leadership, advocacy, and autonomy.

    And if you’re not into dismantling the systems of oppression that exist in the world today, that’s cool. Women can create wealth for no other reason than they deserve it and they want it. Women are allowed to make a million dollars because they want to fly first-class, carry a Chanel bag, and order fancy champagne whenever the hell they want.

  • Knowledge And Power


    Legendary economist, investor, tech philosopher, and public treasure George Gilder argues that a hard-driving culture of entreprenurial ideas is now in conflict with a growing mindset of government regulation combined with a total surrender of the individual imagination. The winner of this battle may determine a new paradigm of economics and thought for the next century, whether we like it or not.

    Ronald Reagan’s most-quoted living author–George Gilder–is back with an all-new paradigm-shifting theory of capitalism that will upturn conventional wisdom.

    Gilder breaks away from the supply-side model of economics to present a new economic paradigm: the epic conflict between the knowledge of entrepreneurs on one side, and the blunt power of government on the other. The knowledge of entrepreneurs, and their freedom to share and use that knowledge, are the sparks that light up the economy and set its gears in motion. The power of government to regulate, stifle, manipulate, subsidize or suppress knowledge and ideas is the inertia that slows those gears down, or keeps them from turning at all.

    One of the twentieth century’s defining economic minds has returned with a new philosophy to carry us into the twenty-first. Knowledge and Power is a must-read for fiscal conservatives, business owners, CEOs, investors, and anyone interested in propelling America’s economy to future success.

  • Sell It Like A Mango


    Stand out from the competition and become a top-performing seller by mastering a proven sales process.

    Imagine you and another street cart vendor in Jamaica are both selling the same exact mango–same source, same price. What can you do to differentiate yourself? You don’t have to sound or dress a certain way; that’s the Hollywood image of the smooth-talking salesperson, not reality. Anyone can thrive in sales and distinguish themselves in a crowded marketplace–if they have a strong desire to succeed, a belief that they can, and an intentional strategy.

    Maybe you’re not selling a mango, but the same principle applies to every sales situation: you have a product or service that can benefit others, and your job is to help buyers persuade themselves by providing them with the necessary education to make a good decision. Sell It Like a Mango shares practical, easy-to-implement principles, tools, and techniques to build value and convert prospects into loyal fans. Transform your sales mindset and close more deals as you learn to:

    *Recognize misconceptions about selling that are holding you back

    *Find your “why” to keep you motivated

    *Ditch phony sales tactics for authentic ones

    *Overcome the fear of rejection and leverage adversity to your advantage

    *Identify opportunities and act on them

    *Pinpoint, attract, and convert the right prospects–and keep them saying “yes” throughout the entire sales process

    *And much more!

    With these strategies, you can sell any product or service like a mango–because it’s not the product or service that makes the difference; it’s the seller.

  • ReVisionary Thinking : When You Have To Change Your Plans To Reach Your Goa


    How do you get the life you want when things aren’t going your way?

    When things go sideways, most people make one of two mistakes: they either give up on their dreams or they NEVER give up on their dreams, even when those dreams aren’t serving them. You can change your plans and still reach your goals. Scratch that. You HAVE to change your plans to reach your goals.

    That’s the real work of resilience. Resilience isn’t superhuman internal strength. It’s not toxic positivity. It’s not sucking it up to stick it out. True resilience is letting go of the “old way of doing things” and rewriting a script for success that gives you the fastest and best path from where you are to where you’re going.

    Backed by data-driven research, ReVisionary Thinking offers concrete strategies for blazing a new path to achieve your goal when the goalposts move on you. You will learn to acquire resilience through adaptive thinking, a three-part process involving flexibility, creativity, and openness to possibility. Specific principles covered include:

    *How to mourn your path without sacrificing your goal
    *Why your gut instinct fails you in unfamiliar situations-and how to counter it
    *How to create space for more and better choices
    *The benefits of using storytelling to solve problems
    *And much more!

    Success is not determined by how good you plan is (or was), but rather by how willing you are to design a new one when you need to. You may not have chosen where you are, but you get a choice in what comes next. The success of your vision lies in the ReVision.

  • Stealing Genius : The Seven Levels Of Adaptive Innovation


    Improvement is not innovation…and innovation is essential if your aim is to survive in today’s business environment.

    Stealing Genius lays the foundation for a dramatic, and long-overdue, shift in 21st-century strategic marketing and branding. Most executives and decision-makers are now focused on improving what they already have. They want better versions of the products and services they know about or understand. However, fixating on improvement in today’s world is a dangerous path–one that ultimately leads to commoditization and irrelevance.
    Targeting your time, attention, and resources on innovation, by contrast, means identifying something that does not exist right now in any form–something that will create a powerful, uncopyable experience for your target customer.

    In order to be successful both today and in the future, you need to separate yourself from the competition by practicing the breakthrough principle of Adaptive Innovation–what Steve Miller calls Stealing Genius(TM). How? By delivering an experience that the competition either cannot or will not attempt to copy. This is literally impossible if you stick to what is already familiar to you, because whatever is familiar to you and your customers is likely to be familiar to your competition. You must create a new experience that is unique to you and that fosters a powerful emotional attachment with your target customer.

    Featuring dozens of real-life case studies from a wide range of industries , Stealing Genius outlines Miller’s proven six-step process for creating an uncopyable experience. You’ll learn how to:

    *Do more than think outside the box–you’ll build a new box completely

    *Identify your “Moose,” the distinctive customer/client profile for which you are hunting

    *Leverage insight from daily experience, personal heroes, and organizations outside your industry to better serve your customers

    *Flip the competition by doing the exact opposite of what those in your industry are currently doing

    *Maximize your strategic innovation by bringing in a Stealing Genius(TM) facilitator

    If you are trying to anticipate the crowd’s movement, you might as well be following the crowd. Create a truly original brand experience and start pioneering in your industry by implementing the game-changing process of Stealing Genius(TM).

  • Secret Society Of Success


    Tim Schurrer, right-hand man to Donald Miller and vp of talent management and culture at StoryBrand, introduces readers to the Secret Society, a community of people who have learned a new way of defining success–where we stop chasing money, fame, and power and discover meaning and fulfillment in the work we do.

    There’s a message getting a lot of airtime these days. It says to be successful, you have to step into the spotlight, climb the ladder, become the boss, or whatever version of success that’s been dangled in front of you in your career. The problem is, this creates a Spotlight Mindset–or an unhealthy desire for attention and recognition. You work so hard to impress others or chase the next raise or promotion that you end up exhausted, frustrated, and unhappy. But what if there was a different way of defining success?

    In The Secret Society of Success, Tim Schurrer invites us to reevaluate our professional moves and learn a new, freer way to navigate our lives. How do we learn this approach? With the Secret Society as our guides–a community of people who know what it feels like to make a difference, whether they have the spotlight or not. The Secret Society will teach you to:

    *define success for yourself;

    *work hard and contribute to your team without minding who gets the credit;

    *make an impact regardless of the size of your stage or platform;

    *stop chasing money, fame, and power and discover meaning and fulfillment in the work that you do;

    *navigate living in the tension between contentment and striving; and

    *go from feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and restless in your job to being confident in the role you play and the value you bring to the team.

    You can learn a new way to define success that’s counter to what culture is selling. Through stories of people like Alan Mulally, the former CEO of Ford, NBA all-star LeBron James, Fred Rogers of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and people whose names you’ve never heard of, you will discover that the success you’re looking for is within your reach, wherever you are and whatever your role.

  • Brazen : My Unorthodox Journey From Long Sleeves To Lingerie


    Ever since she was a child, every aspect of Julia Haart’s life–what she wore, what she ate, what she thought–was controlled by the dictates of ultra-Orthodox Judaism. At nineteen, after a lifetime spent caring for her seven younger siblings, she was married off to a man she barely knew. For the next twenty-three years, her marriage would rule her life.
    Eventually, when Haart’s younger daughter, Miriam, started to innocently question why she wasn’t allowed to sing in public, run in shorts, or ride a bike without being covered from neck to knee, Haart reached a breaking point. She knew that if she didn’t find a way to leave, her daughters would be forced into the same unending servitude that had imprisoned her.

    So Haart created a double life. In the ultra-Orthodox world, clothing has one purpose–to cover the body, head to toe–and giving any thought to one’s appearance beyond that is considered sinful, an affront to God. But when no one was looking, Haart would pore over fashion magazines and sketch designs for the clothes she dreamed about wearing in the world beyond her Orthodox suburb. She started preparing for her escape by educating herself and creating a “freedom” fund. At the age of forty-two, she finally mustered the courage to flee the fundamentalist life that was strangling her soul.

    Within a week of her escape, Haart founded a shoe brand, and within nine months, she was at Paris Fashion Week. Just a few years later, she was named creative director of La Perla. Soon she would become co-owner and CEO of Elite World Group, and one of the most powerful people in the fashion industry. Along the way, her four children–Batsheva, Shlomo, Miriam, and Aron–have not only accepted but embraced her transformation.

    Propulsive and unforgettable, Haart’s story is the journey from a world of no to a world of yes, and an inspiration for women everywhere to find their freedom, their purpose, and their voice.

  • Napoleon Hills Positive Influence


    Napoleon Hill spent twenty years of his life interviewing the most successful men in America in order to write the first book on the science of personal achievement. In the course of his studies, he developed seventeen success principles. These teachings explain each of them, In order, they are Definiteness of Purpose, the Master Mind Alliance, Going the Extra Mile, Applied Faith, Self-Discipline and Cosmic Habit Force. Hill often referred to these as the most important of the success principles.

    Hill and his last wife, Annie Lou, established the Napoleon Hill Foundation 1962, and it continues today to publish his books, videos, audios and lectures. These six lectures were transcribed but never before published and only recently found by the Foundation. The Trustees of the Foundation have chosen the title “Napoleon Hill’s Positive Influence” for this book because these lectures deal with many of the influences which help people to become successful, and which drove Hill to achieve his own successes.

    One of Hill’s greatest influences was business tycoon Andrew Carnegie, who commissioned him in 1908 to undertake his twenty-year investigation. During his investigation, he discovered that important positive influences on successful people included having self-discipline, learning from adversity, working in harmony with others, selecting “pace makers”, surrounding oneself with positive books and mottos, being guided by Faith and what Hill called “Infinite Intelligence”, social and physical heredity, and the law of Cosmic Habit force, by which one’s habits become ingrained in one’s personality and character. All of these positive influences are covered in these lectures.

    In addition to Andrew Carnegie, a number of individuals were positive influences in Hill’s life, and they too are discussed in the lectures. Those who he knew personally, and who are referenced in the lectures, include Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Franklin Roosevelt, Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Elmer Gates, Alexander Graham Bell and Edwin Barnes. On a more personal level, he speaks fondly of his step-mother and his wives who helped him with his endeavors. We are fortunate to be able to present an Introduction to the book by Napoleon’s grandson, J.B. Hill, and a Preface by Napoleon Hill Foundation Executive Director Don M. Green, both of which explain the important roles played by these women in bringing positive influences to bear on his life and work.

  • All In : How Obsessive Leaders Achieve The Extraordinary


    What makes great leaders like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk extraordinary? All In shows leaders and aspiring leaders how obsession can fuel the most incredible success, but also take a toll on a leader, his or her family and work colleagues.

    Groundbreaking leaders share a passionate commitment to achieving their vision that borders and sometimes crosses the line into obsession. All In shows how obsession, if properly focused and managed, is both necessary and productive. Advances in any endeavor almost always depend on a small group of individuals who are completely consumed by the goal they’re pursuing. When these leaders and their teams are successful, everyone benefits from their singular focus and relentless drive.

    All In explores the three obsessions underlying the achievements of great leaders:

    *Delighting customers
    *Building great products
    *Creating an enduring company

    By taking you inside the success stories of iconic leaders, including Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Elon Musk of Tesla, and Steve Jobs of Apple, author Robert Bruce Shaw shows the upside of obsession and the practices that support it. Shaw also provides insight into the dark side of obsession and its destructive potential – as illustrated in his case study of Uber during the final years of Travis Kalanick’s leadership tenure. Appealing to any reader of entrepreneurial biographies, All In shows individuals and organizations how to manage obsession’s downsides while realizing the benefits of striving to create something that truly matters.

In Life after Google, George Gilder–the peerless visionary of technology and culture–explains why Silicon Valley is suffering a nervous breakdown and what to expect as the post-Google age dawns.

    Google’s astonishing ability to “search and sort” attracts the entire world to its search engine and countless other goodies–videos, maps, email, calendars….And everything it offers is free, or so it seems. Instead of paying directly, users submit to advertising. The system of “aggregate and advertise” works–for a while–if you control an empire of data centers, but a market without prices strangles entrepreneurship and turns the Internet into a wasteland of ads.

    The crisis is not just economic. Even as advances in artificial intelligence induce delusions of omnipotence and transcendence, Silicon Valley has pretty much given up on security. The Internet firewalls supposedly protecting all those passwords and personal information have proved hopelessly permeable.

    The crisis cannot be solved within the current computer and network architecture. The future lies with the “cryptocosm”–the new architecture of the blockchain and its derivatives. Enabling cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ether, NEO and Hashgraph, it will provide the Internet a secure global payments system, ending the aggregate-and-advertise Age of Google.

    Silicon Valley, long dominated by a few giants, faces a “great unbundling,” which will disperse computer power and commerce and transform the economy and the Internet.
    Life after Google is almost here.

  • Sales Differentiation : 19 Powerful Strategies To Win More Deals At The Pri


    If we don’t drop our price, we will lose the deal.

    That’s the desperate cry from salespeople as they try to win deals in competitive marketplaces. While the easy answer is to lower the price, the company sacrifices margin–oftentimes unnecessarily.

    To win deals at the prices you want, the strategy needed is differentiation. Most executives think marketing is the sole source of differentiation. But what about the sales function of the company? This commonly neglected differentiation opportunity provides a multitude of ways to stand out from the competition. This groundbreaking book teaches you how to develop those strategies.

    In Sales Differentiation, sales management strategist, Lee B. Salz presents nineteen easy-to-implement concepts to help salespeople win deals while protecting margins. These concepts apply to any salesperson in any industry and are based on the foundation that how you sell, not just what you sell, differentiates you.

    The strategies are presented in easy-to-understand stories and can quickly be put into practice. Divided into two sections, the what you sell chapters help salespeople:

    *Recognize that the expression we are the best causes differentiation to backfire.

    *Avoid the introspective question that frustrates salespeople and ask the right question to fire them up.

    *Understand what their true differentiators are and how to effectively position them with buyers.

    *Find differentiators in every nook and cranny of the company using the six components of the Sales Differentiation Universe.

    *Create strategies to position differentiators so buyers see value in them.

    The how you sell section teaches salespeople how to provide meaningful value to buyers and differentiate themselves in every stage of the sales process. This section helps salespeople:

    *Develop strategies to engage buyers and turn buyer objections into sales differentiation opportunities.

    *Shape buyer decision criteria around differentiators.

    *Turn a commoditized Request for Proposal (RFP) process into a differentiation opportunity.

    *Use a buyer request for references as a way to stand out from the competition.

    *Leverage the irrefutable, most powerful differentiator…themselves.

    Whether you’ve been selling for twenty years or are new to sales, the tools you learn in Sales Differentiation will help you knock-out the competition, build profitable new relationships, and win deals at the prices you want.

  • Cloud Revolution : How The Convergence Of New Technologies Will Unleash The


    When it comes to predicting how technology changes our near future, there are two camps. One says we live at a time of a “new normal” where we’ve netted all the low-hanging fruit and ordering a ride or food on a smartphone is as good as it’s going to get. The other camp sees lots of changes but mainly in destroying jobs and traditional businesses. They’re both wrong predicts Mark P. Mills.

    History will record the 2020s as one of the rare pivots when technology-driven prosperity goes into high gear. It doesn’t come from any single ‘big’ invention, but from the convergence of radical advances in technologies in three great domains: microprocessors infused into everything; machines used for making and moving everything; and materials, unprecedented and novel ones, from which everything is built. And now the “Cloud,” history’s biggest and newest infrastructure emerging from the building blocks of next generation microprocessors and artificial intelligence, accelerates progress across all those domains.

    We’ve seen this pattern before. The structure of the technological revolution that drove the 20th century’s great economic expansion can be traced to a similar convergence visible in the 1920s: a new information infrastructure (telephony), new machines (cars and power plants), and new materials (plastics and pharmaceuticals). It’s true that we’ve wrung much of the magic out of technologies that fueled the last boom. But last time there was no Cloud. The next boom starts now. And the U.S. is again at the epicenter of these innovations, ones that promise to upend the status quo in manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, education, energy and entertainment.

  • unReceptive : A Better Way To Sell, Lead, And Influence

The ability to convert the 80%+ of people who are unreceptive, requires a new mindset and skillset.

    In unReceptive, Tom Stanfill shares his proven methodology that has been road-tested for decades by hundreds of thousands of sales professionals, workshop participants, and industry experts who have used the tools in this book to convert even the most disinterested of prospects and customers.

    *How to eliminate resistance and make selling easy and enjoyable, while experiencing a deeper sense of purpose.

    *To master a new approach to navigating the most challenging barriers in sales–opening a “closed” door, uncovering the unfiltered truth, and converting the most jaded customers and prospects.

    *To adopt the tested and true operating system the top 1% of the most persuasive and influential people have that the other 99% do not.

    These are not new gimmicks or sales tricks. unreceptive unleashes the power of a sales method that has worked for hundreds of thousands of salespeople all over the world, shifting the focus from crafting the perfect message to creating receptivity, and flipping the entire art of selling on its head.

  • Wake Up : The Powerful Guide To Changing Your Mind About What It Means To R


    Why would you settle for an ordinary life when you have an extraordinary mind? Break your good life into six bite-size pieces so you can live a successful life without regret.

    What this world needs now more than ever are women who think differently. Every action taken or decision made is affected by our thoughts, mindset, and beliefs about the world. Our fears, excuses, procrastination, and self-sabotage must change if we want to impact our lives in any meaningful way. So, what is the secret to discovering lasting fulfillment in a culture that wants us sleeping?

    In Wake Up!, Lindsay Teague Moreno explores the six core foundations for a fulfilled life and the mindset shift that can occur when you stop looking at the expectations you put on yourself. Through stories and tough questions, you will emerge more prepared to live the kind of life that feels right, regardless of what other people think of it.

    In the areas of relationships, health, finance, business, and personal and spiritual life, Wake Up! will help you assess what you believe and how that affects your success. Then Moreno walks you through how to burn down the old ways to build the life of your dreams by:

    *Squeezing lessons out of life’s biggest letdowns,
    *Finding fulfillment in the middle of the fire,
    *Shifting your mindset to control your thoughts and make the future happen on purpose, and
    *Living a life with no excuses and nothing to lose.

    “Creating a vision of the life we’d like to live isn’t hard. In fact, it’s pretty fun and satisfying,” says Moreno. “It’s easy to see all the problems we have now and say, ‘If this wasn’t a problem, then I’d be happy.’ But that’s just a lie we tell ourselves to keep ourselves safe and warm in the house and story we’ve built for ourselves.”

    Moreno will also share ways you can change your mindset in each core foundation so that your life works for you, rather than the other way around. Perfect for women who work inside or outside the home, Wake Up! will show you why it’s so important to understand how and why we change our minds and wake up to what we really believe.

    Only you can emit that special energy that comes from being brave enough to live a life you’ll never regret. Whole-life fulfillment is only a mindset shift away.

  • Change Has Changed


    The Greek philosopher Heraclitus said change is the only constant in life.

    But the world has experienced so much upheaval since January 2020 that change itself has changed! In business, the church, and nonprofits, leaders are being left in the dust as events and challenges speed by in a blur. The pace of change was accelerating before…but the pandemic pressed the pedal to the floor.

    “We’re at an inflection point,” says leadership architect and change strategist Sam Chand. “The way things were isn’t the way things will be.”

    In his new book Change Has Changed, Sam sets out to help leaders understand the evolving nature of change so that they can guide their organizations with wisdom and confidence.

    He examines three major shifts that he likens to three simultaneous earthquakes:

    *Our environment has changed. People are working from home, many businesses may never reopen, and the way we shop, handle health needs, and even go to church has changed.

    *We have changed. We’ve learned to live with rampant uncertainty and a raft full of nagging fears–but our bodies and our souls weren’t meant for this!

    *The people around ushave changed. They are frustrated, isolated, depressed, anxious, and angry. They just don’t feel safe.

    Sam tackles these and related issues head-on by offering lessons that will empower leaders to be ready for the next normal.

    “We used to talk about a new normal as if it’s the end point of change,” Sam explains, “but if we’ve learned anything in the past months, it’s that change is perpetual, and we need to anticipate the next one on the horizon.”

  • Theory Of Accountability



    You may think you know what this familiar formula means, but until you read Sam Silverstein’s breakthrough book, you will not know its true power or its potential. This is the Accountability Formula(TM), and it forms the heart of the Theory of Accountability(TM).

    Silverstein’s Theory of Accountability has nothing to do with physics, the speed of light, or the relationship between space and time. It has everything to do with personal and organizational growth, and with establishing the kind of leadership in your own life that makes excuses a thing of the past…and inspires true commitment from others.

    The Theory of Accountability states: Our lived EXPERIENCE is the direct result of our MINDSET and our COMMITMENT SQUARED.

    Silverstein’s new book examines each of these critical elements in depth, and shows you how to leverage the power of accountability to create a sustainable high-performance life and organization.

    E stands for Experience. Our experience is the results: the outcomes we achieve in our life, in our business, and everywhere else. It is what we produce. Our experience impacts the lives of everyone we come in contact with. The problem is, all too often, our experience is erratic, random, unplanned, and dysfunctional–with results to match.

    M stands for Mindset. The accountable mindset is based on a conscious decision to embrace possibility rather than fear. When decisions are driven by fear, our experience and the experience of everyone we come in contact with suffers. On the other hand, when decisions are driven by a set of beliefs that are based on valuing people, and on a foundation of abundance rather than scarcity, our experience improves.

    C2 stands for Commitment Squared. How do we ensure that our mindset is driven by possibility and abundance, rather than by fear and scarcity? By focusing on our ability to make, keep, and expand specific commitments. There is truly awesome power in commitment. The quality of the results you achieve is always based on two things: how committed you are to people, and how committed you are to your mindset and your core beliefs. These are the two commitments of the accountable person. When both kinds of commitments are in full play, when you are all in, you are living to your full potential. Such commitments are like compound interest, because they produce increasingly greater results over time.

    Sam’s latest book offers leaders a proven system for taking control of your life and

  • Sparked : Discover Your Unique Imprint For Work That Makes You Come Alive


    Is your life everything you want it to be? If not, why not? Uncover your unique mix of motivation, talent, and drive that, when combined, will pinpoint precisely what you are meant to do and exactly how to get started.

    Many of us find ourselves chasing society’s vision of success. Yet, as the national rate of depression continues to rise, it’s clearer than ever that we aren’t meant to chase a uniform vision of success. We are meant to chase our own vision of success. And Sparked will help you pinpoint what your unique vision looks like and how to start your journey to achieve it.

    Jonathan Fields, founder of the Good Life Project, has conducted years of interviews with highly successful leaders in every industry who are doing what they are uniquely meant to do and finding fulfilling success in doing it. In these interviews, he noticed patterns and commonalities along their career paths. Using this information and additional extensive research, he has defined ten distinct Sparketypes: the Maker, the Scientist, the Maven, the Essentialist, the Performer, the Advisor, the Nurturer, the Warrior, the Sage, and the Advocate.

    Sparked is made up of case studies, stories, and real-world applications, creating the comprehensive Sparketype bible to help people discover what they are meant to do and how to get started.

    In this book, Jonathan picks up where his highly popular Sparketype test leaves off to help readers:
    *Evaluate the cause and get to the core of their unhappiness in their profession;
    *Determine their Sparketype and Shadow Sparketype to better understand their strengths and preferences;
    *Identify the action steps they need to take to transform their career and life; and
    *Start the process of professional discovery.
