Badass Affirmations

By

#1 Best Seller in Popular Culture, Feminist Theory, Quotations, and Social Science ─ Positive Affirmations for a Badass

Fans of Rachel Hollis and Girl, Wash Your Face will love Becca Anderson's Badass Affirmations

Even a badass needs daily affirmations. We all need reminders. You don’t leap out of bed knowing you are amazing and about to have an incredible day. All of us have a lot of demands, pressures, to-do’s and responsibilities. We find ourselves rushing around, working hard to please others. Often we find ourselves at the back of our own bus, having made everyone else happy but our own damn self. Then you go and beat yourself up about it. Let’s stop that, shall we?

The incredible art of self-affirmation. Positive living and affirmation queen Becca Anderson reminds you that you are pretty darn great. I had to learn to remind myself, but you know what? It feels pretty darn good. It is even kind of addictive in the best way. There are reasons we need esteem boosters. We pick up scars and get bumps and bruises in daily life. If you had a bad childhood, you have old “tapes” from poor parenting looping through your unconscious brain. “You’ll never amount to anything. You’re not good at sports. Your sister has a better singing voice than you, so we’re sending her to music camp and you can stay behind and babysit.” Even nice moms and dads perpetrate these parenting errors that leave marks on our souls. But, we can overcome with the right mix of badass affirmations. Every day and in every way, you can learn the art of self-affirmation.

Self-affirmation adjustment. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and drained by life’s busyness and demands, stop in your tracks and do an attitude adjustment, or more specifically a “gratitude adjustment.” You have need for some “me TLC” and a dose of radical self-affirmation.

In Badass Affirmations you will:

• Learn the habit of affirming yourself daily
• Experience a life filled with love, joy, fulfillment and satisfaction
• Take control of your destiny
• Strengthen your self-esteem

#1 New Release in Organizational Change — Business Magic and Disruptive Innovation

First comes the magic, and then the magic becomes the reality

Magicians reveal secrets to business excellence. You may think you know what magic is. Abracadabra, hocus-pocus. Forget about it. Magic? Magic is what human beings do. It’s just that some do it a lot better than others.

Nine business strategies from the world's greatest magicians.This book takes everything that three remarkable authors—a corporate strategist, the former acting director of the CIA, and a world-renowned magician—have learned about magic and packs it into a unique framework that captures the best of this art form and relates it directly to key lessons applicable to a wide variety of business enterprises. The authors’ objective is not to create a new generation of magicians, but to adapt nine strategies of the world’s greatest magicians and inspire boundless imagination, bolster innovation, energize leadership, and spark success in any business. At the core of Creating Business Magic is the belief that imagination can make magicians of us all.

Magic and disruptive innovation. Each chapter opens with a scenario depicting a pivotal historic moment in magic—from Harry Houdini to Doug Henning to Penn and Teller to David Copperfield—and uses it as a starting point to explore how the magical technique employed can create a fertile environment for industry, disruptive innovation and propel a company light years ahead of the competition. The nine disruptive strategies presented by the authors demonstrate how to:

  • Anticipate the next trends
  • Create remarkable new products
  • Launch marketing and advertising campaigns that will mesmerize “aspirationals”
  • Make dazzling sales presentations
  • Resolve seemingly unsolvable business dilemmas
  • Inspire teams with resilient change leadership

Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers

By

#1 Best Seller in Aging, Gerontology, and Volunteer Work. Wall Street Journal Best Books of 2018 on Aging Well ─ Over Fifty, Retiring and Childless?

Are you among the fifteen million Americans over fifty and childless? Solo aging gracefully and a happy retirement can be yours!

Baby Boomers retiring: American Baby boomers are aging and fifteen million of them never had children. Who will take care of them? Unprecedented in U.S. history, this demographic will create challenges for these individuals as well as for society. Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers is a passionate exploration of the path ahead for “Solo Agers.” It includes choices in housing, relationships, legal arrangements, finances and more – and urges the solo ager to plan for the future as though their life and well-being depended on it, as author Sara Zeff Geber believes it will!

Solo Agers aging well: In Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers, Sara Zeff Geber, a Ph.D. in Counseling and Human Behavior and a Certified Retirement Coach, coins the term “Solo Ager” to refer to the segment of society that either does not have adult children or is single and believes they will be on their own as they grow older. However, it’s not just the Solo Ager that can learn from this book. Financial advisors, elder law and estate attorneys, senior care managers, and others whose clientele is on the far side of sixty will benefit as well.

Retirement and good living: With a compelling and readable style, Geber takes her readers on a journey, starting with the choice for childlessness and why so many boomers were able to make that decision. She then reviews the role of adult children in an aging parent’s world and suggests ways in which Solo Agers can mitigate the absence of adult children by relationship building and rigorous planning for their future. Geber shares her expertise on what constitutes a fulfilling older life and how Solo Agers can maximize their opportunities for financial security, physical health, meaning and purpose in the second half of life and, finally, planning for the end game.

Retirement guide: Through stories and narrative, the author explores housing choices, relationships, and building a support system. You will learn about:

  • different levels of care and independence in various types of living arrangements
  • how to initiate discussions among friends and relatives about end-of-life treatment
  • ‘what if’ scenarios
  • who to talk to about legal and financial decisions

Geber's stories of Solo Agers are gleaned from friends and clients in a variety of circumstances. Each one demonstrates decisions and choices these people have made and illustrates the importance of thinking ahead and taking action now.

Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers is pragmatic and provocative, but softened with humor. Many of the chapters include worksheets or checklists, encouraging the reader to go beyond imagining and begin his or her own planning for the voyage ahead.

Love Earth Now

By

Silver Nautilus Book Award Winner! 
Merge environmentalism and spirituality─attain a state of eco-mindfulness and sustainable living

What can you do for the environment? Do you find yourself wondering what on Earth you can do about the serious environmental challenges we face today? Do you worry there’s nothing any one person can do that will make a difference? Most people say they would like to do something to make the world a better place, but they just don’t believe they have the time, energy, money or power to do anything that will make a real difference. Are you willing to devote 20 minutes a week to find out? Environmental activist Cheryl Leutjen has the planet’s back and is betting you do too. Her powerful book of inspired ideas and eco-mindfulness calls upon us all to Love Earth Now.

Conservation and sustainable living. Love Earth Now invites us to explore our thoughts and feelings about the waste and negative environment impacts we see daily. Drawing from her experiences as an engineering geologist, environmental law attorney, small shop owner, and mindfulness practitioner, Cheryl also reminds us about the importance of simplicity. All our possessions and constant shopping are no better for us than they are for the planet itself. They contribute to landfills and create a tech-tethered society that is increasingly isolated. Both helpful and hopeful, Love Earth Now is brimming with creative ideas we can all try. Get closer to a sustainable lifestyle, one day at a time.

Practice Eco-mindfulness. Cheryl’s book of planetary self-help and eco-mindfulness is a deeply thoughtful and lucid look at the state of our “big blue marble,” our beautiful earth. It's also a sourcebook of direct actions─large and small─we can all take to ensure our children and their children’s children have a healthy future on this planet.

If you liked reading books such as Vitamin NThe Sound of a Wild Snail Eating, or Braiding Sweetgrass, you'll enjoy the award-winning Love Earth Now.
