Real Estate Rescue

#1 New Release in Home Design Remodeling & Renovation ─ A Must-Read for Success in the Housing Market

The advice you didn’t know you needed. Because most people only enter the real estate world once a decade or less, few really know how it works. The housing market elicits a lot of emotions, from excitement to anxiety. Oftentimes, this can blind us to the realities of how the market works. Top residential real estate agent Tracy McLaughlin is here to change our understanding of the home sale process. From those buying their first home to sellers with some experience, this book is packed with essential advice.

A roadmap for buyers and sellers. In nearly all real estate sales, buyers and sellers leave behind thousands—or even hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars—on the table. As frightening as this reality is, it continually happens because one simple decision, among the countless made during the entire process, can greatly impact the outcome of the transaction.

Bridging the gap between information and expertise. Because of the way technology has impacted real estate sales, buyers and sellers have greater access to information and even the ability to direct the sales process. While knowing market information is helpful in real estate sales, most people still lack a key aspect: expertise. By presenting an inside view on sales, McLaughlin provides a guide for maximizing the value of the sale and purchase of homes.

In this book by real estate expert Tracy McLaughlin, readers will find…

  • Detailed guidelines for how to save money and make money
  • Advice for finding the right real estate agent
  • The real estate for dummies book every home buyer or seller needs

If you’ve looked for guidance in books such as Dream Home, Nolo’s Essential Guide to Buying Your First Home, and Home Buying Kit For Dummies, then you’ll find more of what you’re looking for in Real Estate Rescue with Tracy McLaughlin.

Postcards to the Universe

By

Connecting with the Universe and Your Own Deepest Desires

Open a conversation with the world around you: We have the ability to be in open communication with the Universe, the loving energy behind all creation. But do we listen to what the Universe has to say? Do we use our own voices to speak back? Artist-photographer, popular radio host, and blogger Melisa Caprio helps us enter into deep conversation with the Universe through combining creative visualization with the power of intention.

Identify the desires of your heart: Too often we are so caught up in daily life that we don’t stop and ask ourselves what we truly desire. While it is tempting to stay in our comfort zone, our heart longs for more than the mundane. It desires manifestation. Caprio is here to foster that state of mindfulness and spirituality through photography, postcard art, written messages, and affirmations from others who are living their greatest desires.

Harness your own spiritual power: Creators, mystics, artists, and spiritualists will find representation and inspiration in this book. Likewise, those who have been putting their dreams on hold or who are dissatisfied with the status quo will find this book to be a visual guide to attaining the creativity they long for in their lives. Each of us possesses the power to bend the ear of the Universe and share what it is we want most.

Postcards to the Universe: Harness the Universe’s Power and Manifest Your Dreams, a self-help book designed to foster personal and spiritual development, will help you:

  • Put mind over matter and pursue your deepest desires
  • Form an active and poignant relationship with the Universe
  • Reach your full potential and feel empowered to live an inspired and successful life

If books such as The Universe Has Your BackBecoming Supernatural, and Mind to Matter have spoken to you, then you’ll love Melisa Caprio’s Postcards to the Universe.

A Bright Clean Mind

By

#1 New Release in Art Instruction ― Explore the Connection Between Diet and Creativity

If you liked Brain FoodBreaking the Habit of Being Yourself or Grain Brain, you’ll love A Bright Clean Mind.

Vegan Food is Everywhere: When people ask how author and certified vegan lifestyle coach Camille DeAngelis feels satisfied on a vegan diet, she thinks of the moment in James and the Giant Peach when the Grasshopper and the Centipede fret that they have nothing to eat until James points out that they're traveling inside an enormous piece of fruit. There is plenty, Camille reminds us in A Bright Clean Mind, a self-help motivational book for artists and creatives. Everything we could ever want to eat, and more, is all around us.

Imagine a Better Life: Because we live in a culture in which the eating and wearing of animals is taken for granted, we rarely recognize our limiting meat-centric mindset. But if we can employ our imagination to create worlds from scratch, we can surely use our imaginative power to envision a new way of seeing ourselves in relation to the animals we eat. On the other side of this brain transformation is a lifestyle that is ideal for our own health and emotional well-being and is much more environmentally sustainable.

Improve Your Work Flow: Camille believes that creative hobbies and habits reinvigorate one's primary work. But she knits, sews, embroiders, and bakes for the pleasure of it, too. Her productivity and brain power have been remarkable since going vegan seven years ago, and even more importantly, she no longer feels any of the frustration or uncertainty artists tend to accept as part of the creative process.

A Bright Clean Mind is perfect for every creative suffering from brain fog. In this book, you will discover:

  • The effect your diet may be having on your creativity and mood
  • Examples of how going vegan is basically giving yourself brain food
  • Ways to incorporate a vegan diet into your busy life
