Finance Secrets of Billion-Dollar Entrepreneurs

Take Control of Your Startup―and Watch it Grow

“This book delivers clear thinking for entrepreneurs who want to control their own destiny and grow their business without the need for venture capital.” −Joel Cannon, co-founder and president of Cannon Technologies

An analysis of success.  Award-winning professor of entrepreneurship Dileep Rao presents readers with a detailed guide to success through his interviews and analysis of billion-dollar entrepreneurs (those who built a venture from startup to more than $1 billion in sales and valuation) and 100 million-dollar entrepreneurs (startup to $100 million).

Build your business without venture capital (VC) funding.  Rao is here to show entrepreneurs that it is possible to start a business without outside help. He shares how more than 90 percent of America’s billion-dollar entrepreneurs in the VC era (since 1946) avoided or delayed VC, and instead used finance-smart expertise―skills that combine business-smart, capital-smart, and leadership-smart strategies.

The right mix of internal and external financing. It takes more than one person to grow a business from the bottom up. But that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice control of the venture in the process. Armed with 23 years of experience as a financer, Rao shows readers how to optimize internal financing so as to attract external financing. By keeping control of the venture, entrepreneurs keep more of the wealth, as well.

In Finance Secrets of Billion-Dollar Entrepreneurs learn about:

  • Pre-financing, financing and post-financing skills and strategies of finance-smart entrepreneurs
  • The ins and outs of venture finance, applicable to anyone looking to start a business
  • Tips on increasing capital productivity and attaining financially sustainable entrepreneurship

If you’ve enjoyed entrepreneurship-focused titles like The Lean StartupThe $100 Startup, or Venture Deals, then Rao’s Finance Secrets of Billion-Dollar Entrepreneurs is the next book for you.

Overcoming Hate Through Dialogue

By

How a TED Talk Speaker Learned to Successfully Confront Bigotry, Prejudice, and Racism

“This brilliant and well-researched book ought to be required reading for anyone interested in conflict resolution; it gives nuance to an otherwise stale-mated debate.” ―Journalisten

Highlighted in Publisher´s Weekly list of new social justice books

TED talk speaker Özlem Cekic offers a blueprint for confronting racism, prejudice and hatred. She calls her conflict resolution process “Dialogue Coffee”.

Familiarity and dialogue is the antidote to intolerance and prejudice. Özlems method of having coffee with people who send her hate mail has been recognized around the world and inspires listening, understanding and an end to blind hatred.

When Özlem Cekic became the first Muslim MP in the Danish Parliament, her email inbox started flooding with hate mail and threats, and her first reaction was to delete and ignore each abusive message. But eventually, she decided to take a risk. She started replying to each message and inviting the senders to meet and engage in dialogue over coffee. What she discovered was that she could create change in the people who sent her hate mail, understand where their anger came from, and build friendships through finding common ground.

Imagine a world where we can have a conversation with anyone. Overcoming Hate Through Dialogue teaches you how exactly to make that a reality:

  • Listen and focus on what you have in common instead of your differences
  • Praise your counterpart for having the courage to have this conversation
  • Recognize the other person´s emotions and feelings even if you don´t agree with them
  • Distance yourself from the other person´s attitude, but never the human and their humanity

Readers of books on activism, racism and social change like How to Be an AntiracistThe Racial Healing Handbook, or Rising Out of Hatred will be inspired and encouraged by Özlem Cekic’s Overcoming Hate Through Dialogue.

Stop Fear From Stopping You

What's Stopping You?

Harness Your Fear

“Join the thousands of others her words have helped and decide to take control. Start today. Start now.” ―Dr. John Duffy, author of Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety 

Dr. Helen Odessky describes what she has learned in fifteen years of helping people face their fears.  Learn to face your fears and attain greater opportunities in your relationships, career, and life.

Value good fear. Sometimes fear can be helpful. A few years ago, Dr. Helen Odessky, licensed clinical psychologist, anxiety expert, speaker, and author of the best-selling motivational book Stop Anxiety from Stopping You, found herself part of a minor fender-bender on a major interstate. Looking back at her daughter, she feared that if another car hit them, her daughter's life would be in danger. A few minutes after retreating to another car in a safer location, an 18-wheeler barreled into her car and demolished it. Her fear saved both her daughter's life and her own.

Fight bad fear. Stop Fear from Stopping You is about a different type of fear―the fear that is so prevalent that it often lies dormant―destroying dreams, career paths and relationships. Bad fear creates stories that cushion us from potential pain and failure―at the cost of our self-esteem, success, and personal happiness.

Become fear-wise. Because fear is complex, we cannot afford to merely be fearless. Just "letting go" is not the answer. The real solution lies in learning to become fear-wise. In this inspirational book, Dr. Helen shows you how to harness the wisdom behind your fears and break through the barriers that block your success.

  • Identify the fears that stand between you and your goals
  • Develop tools to overcome your fears
  • Develop a value-based plan to pursue your goals
  • Change your relationship with fear and learn to become fear-wise

If self-help books for women and men like Feeling Good: The New Mood TherapyDaring Greatly, or Fearless inspired you, then Stop Fear from Stopping You is a must-read.

A Mother's Courage to Awaken tells a story about the love and loss of a child―and the healing quest it initiated. On her search for inner peace, professor Paula Petry, PhD looks to re-emerging ancient methods that nurture positive emotional health, mental wellness, and spiritual well-being.

A story about death and resurrection. What does this mean? To nurture a life? And what if that life is your own? When Dr. Petry loses her daughter Alexandra, she looks for ways to connect with loved ones in the afterlife.

In Mama’s Milk and Me, author and mother Alisha Gaddis provides a loving and interactive guide for taking this inevitable step.

Just as your child will continue to grow and develop, so too will your relationship. Part of what makes this book a wonderful gift for new moms and mamas with experience is that it doubles as a keepsake. With a fill-in-the-blank format, mothers are provided a space to reflect and work through the emotional process of weaning.

What Was Sex Like for a Medieval Woman?

“Wickedly entertaining, informative and thought-provoking. An insightful, modern look at the lives of women as they were.” –– Dr. Markus Kerr, PhD, MDR.

#1 New Release in Etiquette Guides & Advice

An inside look at sexual practices in medieval times. Were medieval women slaves to their husband's desires, jealously secured in a chastity belt in his absence? Was sex a duty or could it be a pleasure? Did a woman have a say about her own female sexuality, body, and who did or didn’t get up close and personal with it? No. And yes. It’s complicated.

Romance, courtship, and behind closed doors. The intimate lives of medieval women were as complex as for modern women. They loved and lost, hoped and schemed, were lifted up and cast down. They were hopeful and lovelorn. Some had it forced upon them, others made aphrodisiacs and dressed for success. Some were chaste and some were lusty. Having sex was complicated. Not having sex, was even more so.

Inside The Very Secret Sex Lives of Medieval Women, a fascinating book about life during medieval times, you will discover tantalizing true stories about medieval women and a myriad of historical facts. Learn about:

  • The true experiences of women from all classes, including women who made history
  • The dos and don’ts in the bedroom
  • Sexy foods and how to have them
  • All you need to know for your wedding night, and well as insider medical advice
  • How to get pregnant (and how not to), and more

A Parkland Shooting Grief Recovery Journey

“… powerful and heartening lessons on how we can help one another move forward and build a safer, more just world.” ―Gabby Giffords
“Fred Guttenberg is a hero." ―Lawrence O'Donnell

2020 Nautilus Silver Winner
#1 New Release in Grief & Loss

Life changed forever on Valentine's Day 2018 for Fred Guttenberg's family. What should have been a day of love became a nightmare. Seventeen people died at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Jaime Guttenberg, age 14, was the second to last victim.

From grieving to activism.  That Jaime and so many of her fellow students were struck down in cold blood galvanized many to action, including Jaime’s father Fred now an activist dedicated to passing common sense gun safety legislation. But this book is not about gun safety or Parkland.

Fred was already struggling with deep personal loss. Four months earlier his brother Michael died of 9/11 induced pancreatic cancer. He had been exposed to too much dust and chemicals at Ground Zero. Michael battled heroically for nearly five years and then died at age fifty.

Find the Helpers has a special meaning to the Guttenberg’s. It was a beloved family wisdom learned from watching Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. In the midst of tragedy, "always look for the helpers. There will always be helpers. Because if you look for the helpers, you’ll know there’s hope." ―Fred Rogers, 1999

Healing from grief. Discover the story of Fred Guttenberg’s journey since Jaime’s death and how he has been able to get through the worst of times thanks to the kindness and compassion of others. Good things happen to good people at the hands of other good people─and the world is filled with them. They include everyone from amazing gun violence survivors Fred has met to former VP Joe Biden, who spent time talking to him about finding mission and purpose in learning to grieve.
