#1 Amazon New Release! ─ Women + Military = Entrepreneurs

Career military? Leaving the military for civilian life? You can leverage your experience into some great new business startup ideas.

Business success: Military spouses can face serious challenges when trying to develop a career while part of the military life, or equally serious challenges when they transition to civilian life. But, help is on the way in Mission Entrepreneur: Applying Lessons from Military Life to Create Success in Business Startups

Finding startup ideas that can make you a business success: Are you trying to find your niche in our modern world of underemployment and the self-employed, where many are looking for great startup ideas and the opportunity to build wealth and find happiness and fulfillment? Some of the best startup ideas are yet to be discovered and Mission Entrepreneur will guide you through Jen E. Griswold's journey toward realizing her personal dream of becoming one of the successful women entrepreneurs. Experiencing underemployment as a military spouse, she learns how to turn her military experience into business success.

The underemployment problem: Being a military spouse comes with sacrifices. Spouses give up college degrees, careers and put other plans on hold due to military relocations. The country feels the effects. Reports show that 90% of female spouses face underemployment and countless income tax dollars are lost. As both a spouse and veteran for 20 years, Jen E. Griswold witnessed many spouses trying to keep a career going through their first few assignments. After multiple failed attempts and the addition of kids, they often gave up, deciding their efforts were futile. Their confidence waned and they began to question their self-worth.

Women entrepreneurs: Ironically, these same people have the perfect set of skills needed to become successful women entrepreneurs: work ethic, vision, passion, and resilience. These are the exact same skills that have helped them endure a life of sacrifice in the military. But, in most cases, they have given up on their own personal big visions to change the world. Using a lifetime of experience, military trained veterans entering the job force know how to manage the bumpy journey to becoming men and women entrepreneurs and finding those great startup ideas.

Mission Entrepreneur: From her extensive training in the Air Force and experience coaching women over the past several years, Griswold discovered that by giving back to her military community, she could change the world a little bit every day. America needs more men and women entrepreneurs who pay it forward and here is where we’ll start. Welcome to Mission Entrepreneur.

Stop Procrastinating, Get More of the Important Things Done—Today!

There just isn't enough time for everything on our to-do list—and there never will be. Successful people don't try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure those get done. They eat their frogs.

There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're done with the worst thing you'll have to do all day. For Tracy, eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task—but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life. Eat That Frog! – Snapshots shows you how to organize each day so you can zero in on these critical tasks and accomplish them efficiently and effectively.

In this fully redesigned and illustrative edition, Tracy explains how you can use technology to remind yourself of what is most important and protect yourself from what is least important.

But one thing remains unchanged: Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective time management: decision, discipline, and determination. This life-changing book will ensure that you get more of your important tasks done—today!

    How to become Snapchat rich and famous

    Social media success story: Here's a living your dreams story that should inspire everyone ─ the living your dreams story of CyreneQ, a modern Cinderella fairy tale. (See: "Here’s how a 26 year-old is making up to $30,000 per Snap on Snapchat", by Morgan Linton, co-founder of Fashion Metric, November 30, 2016)

    Creative snapchats & funny snapchat drawings: The next time you are sitting in a long, boring meeting and your mind starts to wander might be the very moment you find your destiny. That is exactly what happened to Cyreneq who began doodling funny Snapchat drawings during a particularly snoozy conference room session. Soon after, she went on to rule that burgeoning social media platform with her Snapchat art and her funny Snapchat drawings. Cyrene Quiamco has become a prominent personality with her creative Snapchats on a social media platform that is designed to make content disappear. Since joining Snapchat, Quiamco (who goes by "CyreneQ" across most social media) has amassed a following for her whimsical Snapchat art ― from celebrity portraits to collages of Disney characters ― and interactive creative Snapchats. She engages her community with her highly imaginative and appealing art, quizzes, games and questions, transforming a series of short-lived snaps into a conversation. She's also the creator of The11thSecond.com, a blog and community for creators of Snapchat art to share their work off the platform. Award-winning CyreneqQ was recently nominated for the Shorty Award which recognizes the best in social media.

    Living your dreams ─ Do what you love: This modern fairy tale story (complete with Disney Princess self-portraits of the artist) starts in the Philippines where her family comes from. Cyrene gets her moxie, drive, spirit of self-invention and incredible work ethic from her mom, whom she counts as a main inspiration to be fearless and go for living your dreams. As she puts it, “I've always been an artist ever since elementary school, but I didn't really know how to apply that to the real world.” How she applied her artistry and originality to the modern world of social media is one of the most fantastic social media success stories of the 21st century.

    Do what you love the money will follow: Cyrene's Cinderella "living your dreams" story is one that will have you dusting off your dreams. Cyreneq reminds us all of the power of our own imagination. Unleash that and nothing can stop you!

    What you’ll learn inside 11 Seconds to Success:

    • How to harness your personal creativity and apply it to the real world
    • What CyreneQ really means in her motto “No excuses for starving artists!”
    • That if you "do what you love the money will follow"
    • How to up your social media IQ and your earning quotient, too!

    #1 Bestseller in Addiction & Recovery, Twelve-Step Programs ─ Mind Over Mood: Change Your Mind to Change Your Life

    Finalist for the MS Society Books for a Better Life Award. In Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow best-selling author Karen Casey presents readers with two life choices. The first is to fall into despair, become numb, and let fear have its way with us. The second is to open our minds to positive thoughts, to heal ourselves and each other by changing how we respond in every interaction. Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow focuses on the latter.

    Response vs. reaction. To be frank, mindset is everything. We cannot change a person. We often cannot change a situation. We can change how we respond. We can learn to use positive words and act out of our hearts rather than react with hurt or anger. When we stop focusing on problems solutions tend to appear.

    Happy mind, happy life. If we change how we respond to external stimuli, our mindset follows. Learn how to change your mindset and, echoing Abraham Lincoln, “we are just about as happy as we make up our minds to be.” Organized around twelve very simple steps, this book gives readers the tools to find a positive, peaceful response to every curveball life throws at us.

    Best-seller Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow has sold over 70,000 copies in hardcover. With a new preface, this edition continues to help others heal through recovery. If happiness is a choice you make, and you liked The Happiness AdvantageMindset MakeoverThe Gifts of Acceptance, and Let Go Now, grab yourself a copy of Casey’s latest edition of Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow.

    In reading Karen Casey's book you will learn:

    • Happiness is a choice you can make
    • You can change your life for the better
    • How to follow a path chosen by very successful people
