  • 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.

  • 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

  • Business For The Glory Of God


    Can business activity in itself be morally good and pleasing to God? Sometimes business can seem so shady–manipulating the bottom line, deceiving the consumer, or gaining promotions because of whom you know.

    But Wayne Grudem introduces a novel concept: business itself glorifies God when it is conducted in a way that imitates God’s character and creation. He shows that all aspects of business, including ownership, profit, money, competition, and borrowing and lending, glorify God because they are reflective of God’s nature. Though Grudem isn’t naive about the easy ways these activities can be perverted and used as a means to sin, he knows that Christians can be about the business of business.

    This biblically based book is a thoughtful guide to imitating God during interactions with customers, coworkers, employees, and other businesses. See how your business–and your life in business–can be dedicated to God’s glory.

  • Discipled Leader : Inspiration From A Fortune 500 Executive For Transformin


    Preston Poore has spent decades in corporate America. Despite all the excellent advice he was given for growing in leadership, there was something missing: a way to bring his Christian beliefs to bear in his professional life, not just his personal life. So Preston sought his own answer to how his faith could impact his management of hundreds of employees.

    What he discovered was this: the first step wasn’t adjusting his leadership style. Instead, he needed to let God change him before he could effect real change in his workplace.

  • Becoming Trader Joe


    Build an iconic shopping experience that your customers love-and a work environment that your employees love being a part of-using this blueprint from Trader Joe’s visionary founder, Joe Coulombe.

    Infuse your organization with a distinct personality and culture that draws customers in a way that simply competing on price cannot.

    Joe Coulombe founded what would become Trader Joe’s in the late 1960s and helped shape it into the beloved, quirky food chain it is today. Realizing early on that he could not compete and win by playing the same game his bigger competitors were playing, he decided to build a store for educated people of somewhat modest means. He brought in unusual products from around the world and promoted them in the Fearless Flyer, providing customers with background on how they were sourced and their nutritional value. He also gave the stores a tiki theme to reinforce the exotic trader ship concept with employees wearing Hawaiian shirts.

    In this way, Joe laid down a blueprint for other business owners to follow to build their own unique shopping experience that customers love, and a work environment that employees love being a part of.

    In Becoming Trader Joe, Joe shares the lessons he learned by challenging the status quo and rethinking the way a business operates. He shows readers of all types:

    *How moving from a pure analytical approach to a more creative, problem-solving approach can drive innovation.

    *How finding an affluent niche of passionate customers can be a better strategy than competing on price and volume.

    *How questioning all aspects of the way you do business leads to powerful results.

    *How to build a business around your values and identity.

  • 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.

To combat this alarming trend, Fluker helps women learn how to build their own networks, make meaningful connections, and understand how even some of the most successful women in the world, like Oprah Winfrey and Spanx founder Sara Blakely, had tremendous support networks that helped them achieve their dreams.

  • 5 Levels Of Leadership


    Fuel success and grow your team at every level of leadership.

    True leadership isn’t a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than the boss people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership-where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others.

    The 5 Levels of Leadership are:
    1. Position – People follow because they have to.

    2. Permission – People follow because they want to.

    3. Production – People follow because of what you have done for the organization.

    4. People Development – People follow because of what you have done for them personally.

    5. Pinnacle – People follow because of who you are and what you represent.
    Through humor, in-depth insight, and examples, internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell describes each of these stages of leadership. He shows you how to master each level and rise up to the next to become a more influential, respected, and successful leader.

  • Healing Organization : Awakening The Conscience Of Business To Help Save Th


    The image of modern corporations has been shaped by a focus on profits over people and the environment, but this approach to capitalism is no longer viable. We are at an inflection point where business must take the lead in healing the crises of our time. The Healing Organization shows how corporations can become healing forces.

    Conscious Capitalism pioneer Raj Sisodia and organizational innovation expert Michael J. Gelb were inspired to write The Healing Organization because of the epidemic of unnecessary suffering connected with business, including the destruction of the environment; increasing numbers living paycheck-to-paycheck and barely surviving (despite working full-time or even multiple jobs); rising rates of depression and stress leading to chronic health problems; and because the enmity and dividedness between those who champion unfettered capitalism and those who advocate socialism is exacerbating rather than solving our problems.

    Based on extensive in-depth interviews and inspiring case studies, the authors show how companies such as Shake Shack, Hyatt, KIND Healthy Snacks, Eileen Fisher, H-E-B, FIFCO, Jaipur Rugs and DTE Energy are healing their employees, customers, communities and other stakeholders. They represent a diverse sampling of industries and geographies, but they all have significant elements in common, besides being profitable enterprises:
    *Their employees love coming to work.
    *They have passionately loyal customers.
    *They make a significant positive difference to the communities they serve.
    *They preserve and restore the ecosystems in which they operate.

    In a world that urgently needs healing on many levels, this is a movement whose time has come,. This book shows how it can be done, how it is being done, and how you can begin to do it too.

  • Inventor Confidential : The Honest Guide To Profitable Inventing


    The President of the United Inventors Association shows inventors, innovators, and makers a savvier, safer path towards monetizing your better mouse trap and how to avoid the get-rich-quick scammers.

    The road to licensing a profitable, innovative product or technology is riddled with curves, holes, and rocky cliffs. Every year, hundreds of thousands of eager inventors around the globe spend millions of dollars seeking assistance from inventor service companies and individuals claiming to be experts in the innovation and licensing fields, though their actual success rates are poor in relation to the dollar amounts they charge.

    The reality is, according to Inventors’ Digest(TM), while 78% of new inventors believe they will make over a million dollars with their inventions, less than 1% actually do. Marketers prey on this scenario for their own financial gain.

    Inventor Confidential tips the odds back in the investor’s favor, helping them:

    *Gain a much broader picture of the many current challenges that inventors face these days.
    *Understand the red flags to watch out for when individuals or companies charge up front for their coaching or help-to-market services.
    *See how inventors can improve their odds of licensing success by following a thorough product development protocol, creating working prototypes, and filing U.S. patents.
    *Get the insider perspective on how companies determine the quality of a product submission and if they want to work with the inventor.
    *Learn the 30 steps to market if you want to go it alone.

    For anyone who has a great idea or invention and wants to monetize it but are not sure who to trust, Inventor Confidential will show them where to best spend their hard-earned money to maximize their odds for success.

  • No Pain No Gaines


    Chip Gaines likes to sweat.

    That’s been true ever since he was a little pint-sized hustler selling candy and Capri Suns down at the public tennis courts in northeast Texas. You’ve probably seen him sweat on his television show, Fixer Upper. Deep in his bones he has always known that hard work yields great results, even when there’s little observable evidence of it. On the cusp of launching into what might be the hardest work he and his wife, Joanna, have ever done-building a television network-Chip realized that he’s as proud of the man he’s become as what he’s achieved, and that man would not exist without his network of people.

    Call it a network, a community, a home team. We’ve all got one, including you. Today it might be made up of your family, your neighbors, the people you work with. But if you want a network that will pull you into a life of meaning, a life of joy and connection, you need to be intentional about choosing the people in it. People who are enlivened and electrified by the power of living according to their purpose, who are always in pursuit of lifelong learning, and who have a sincere belief that relationships are more than transactions. Chip Gaines has been building that kind of network his whole life, and he can tell you, it doesn’t come easy.

    To say it requires sweat equity would be an understatement. It requires faith in people. It requires hope. And it requires a willingness to grow even when it hurts. In No Pain, No Gaines, through hard-won lessons and personal stories, Chip will coach you on how to build a network of your own that will make your life richer than you’ve ever imagined.
