THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE FOR BUSINESS OWNERS AND ENTREPRENEURS – RULE #1 DON’T BE #2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you don’t sell yourself nobody else will!

This book is a true gem, it is empowering, inspirational, ruthlessly honest, but most importantly it is probably the most outstandingly motivational book you will ever read, if you REALLY want your dream to come true.

Why? Because it’s written by a man who knows what he’s talking about. You see, in 1991, Daniel Milstein and his parents arrived in America, they were fleeing the religious and political persecution which raged in their native Soviet Union. Daniel Milstein at 16, had only 17 cents in his pocket, however even at that young age, he was richer than most, why, simply because he had a win/win mind-set, a positive outlook, guts and determination. With these assets, from that moment, although he himself didn’t realise it, he was already on his way to achieving the American Dream.

What I liked about this book is that it is so full of inspiring stories. However, this doesn’t mean his message is sugar coated, certainly not! This is a man who tells it as it is, and freely admits that his philosophy runs along the lines of a swift kick in the pants.

Throughout he insists that success lies in attitude, and action, dreaming is no good, it is futile to wait for luck to come your way, the right time, approval from others. You MUST work hard, grab those chances, and not fear failure. Should things not go well, then use the experience as a learning curve, and take a lesson from Arianna Huffington’s mother, who told her daughter (Founder of The Huffington Post) ‘Failure is not the opposite of success; it’s a steppingstone to success.’

Complacency is another very important factor Daniel Milstein covers. It is essential that you remember you can never rest on your laurels. “Success is never owned. It is rented and the rent is due every day!” is his motto. When you succeed be pleased, but don’t become content with your lot, your competitor is waiting to step in your shoes as soon as you lapse, so make sure you don’t!

Persistency is vital. Whatever your dream, go with it, and don’t give up. Should you fail the first, second, third… time then continue to persevere. He provides examples of many well-known names from the MacDonald brothers, Henry Ford, to the inspirational Jim Eisenreich, people who didn’t give up, or listen to those negative influences. Through the motivational quotes and messages strewn copiously throughout the book, the reasons why those who succeed do so, are laid out in plain sight for you to see. Be brave, think outside the box, follow that dream, and then dream bigger, and better. Remember success might not happen overnight, but if you never go for it, you can never win. So stick with it, work hard and learn from those around you and, you will make it.

Eighty-six percent of millionaires are self-made, and two thirds of the world’s billionaires made their fortune from scratch – so what’s stopping you?

Pick up a copy of this book and follow the authors guide to success, learn from him, and others then show the world just what you can achieve!

Silver Dollar by Alan Trustman

 

Betsy discovers that life can change at the flip of a coin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is this story your dream?

A young Betsy, new to New York accepts a date because she is alone, on the rebound, and he has been introduced to her by her only friends in the city. Their foursome is at a Greek restaurant, where a flippant remark sends them on an impulsive whirlwind world tour, but when the plane finally lands at JFK, everything changes. And we begin our journey along the rollercoaster which is Betsy’s life, a myriad of emotions, and dashing, yet mysterious men.

An intelligent career woman, romantic, sexy, yet sometimes lonely, Betsy, despite having husbands, children, and a busy lifestyle, finds herself exposed to the same day to day tasks, worries and anguish ‘ordinary’ women do, and deals with them as best she can, undaunted, hopeful and spirited even into her 70’s. The person who said ‘Life begins at 50,’ obviously hadn’t met Betsy.

This is an irresistible story, completely absorbing, and very enjoyable to read. The reader is able to enjoy complete escapism, and at the turn of every page wonder, what will happen next, and what will the future hold.

What Dogs Really Talk About by Nick da Costa

 

A hilarious yet eye opening insight into our canine friends.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you ever wonder what your dog thinks, or what they talk about when they are together?

The author of this thoroughly entertaining book obviously loves dogs, and has given the subject much consideration, resulting in this hilarious, yet thought provoking book.

Every night six dogs meet under an old oak tree, and like humans, they discuss matters of great importance to them. But what do YOU think are important subjects to our canine friends and companions? Well, the answers are in this book, and not surprisingly, they are very similar to subjects we would discuss – although sometimes from a totally different perspective…

Of course, everyone wants to know where they come from, and dogs are the same, so evolution, how they became tame, or indeed who tamed who is debated, along with why different breeds of dogs evolved into their various shapes and have taken on diverse jobs.

Until you read enlightening book, very few humans can really appreciate how vital our canine friends are to us, and importantly they take their responsibilities. Through the writing of Nick da Costa we discover how they spend their lives looking after, and worrying about us, even if we don’t always see it that way.

A myriad of topics from social networking, to the Dog Star, walkies, playing, vets, Christmas, and of course the arch enemy c.a.t.s., make this book a fantastic addition to any dog lovers bookshelf.

 

About the Book: Every evening a group of Dogs meets under the old oak tree to discuss matters of importance.
Their GREAT ENTERPRISE to help The Owners is a regular subject.
Another, hardly surprising, is cats (please note the small ‘c’).
But topics as far-ranging as Advertising, Social Networking, Space Travel and Evolution all receive their unique canine insight.
Here, then, are the conversations of Whitman, Pippa, Anton, Butch, Malcolm and Obi.
It has been my privilege to write them down.

Odinsmal: Rise of Jotunheim by Sammy Zakaria

 

A wonderful adventure into Norse mythology.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This intriguing adventure takes the reader on an incredible journey into the realms of Norse mythology, one which will never be forgotten.

The story begins on the island of Algir Oya where a seventeen year old halfbreed Odin, is angry because his father Bor has refused to let him take part in an ambush against Jotun General Farbauti, and his men. Bitterly disappointed, Odin is left with strict instructions from his father to look after himself and his mother, and take care of a strange pendant which has been handed down through the generations.

That night, a bloody battle is fought between halfbreeds, the Jotun, and their terrifying wolf like beasts, the Berserkers. Defiantly disobeying orders, Odin leaves the others and witness a scenes which will be etched in his memory forever.

Fleeing for his life, the evil Berserkers follow him back to the retreat, and Odin, and his people, find themselves forced to leave their homeland and sail across the water to Midgard.

However, once there, as halfbreeds, they find themselves struggling against ingrained prejudice, and mistrust by the humans. Nevertheless it is eventually reluctantly agreed that they can stay, and they join forces against Loki the evil ruler of the Jotunheim, whose armies are enslaving humans, and forcing them to mine Blóstein (a precious metal), under terrible conditions.

The situation is so desperate that Odin and his new friends Thedrick, and the twins Ve and Vili, decide they must travel beyond Midgard in their search for allies in the battle against the Jotun… before it is too late!

Their quest finds them travelling cross unknown lands, where they discover the Giant, and a race of people who are keepers of a centuries old secret, and a legend which, if true, will change Odin’s destiny forever.

With Farbauti’s troops in hot pursuit, what does the future hold for Odin and his friends, and will Odin live to reap his revenge on the General?

And Loki, why does he want the Blóstein?

So many questions…

This exciting adventure takes the reader on an incredible journey through lands only written about in legend, inhabited by creatures whose names are only spoken in whispers. Odin’s bravery is legendary, but what will be his fate?

A real page turner, guaranteed to keep its reader on the edge of their seats until the very end.

The Author: Sammy Zakaria 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About the Book: Forced to flee from his home on the island of Algir Oya, young Odin finds that the evil he’d barely escaped is already causing death and destruction on mainland Midgard. In a bid for survival, the humans of Midgard have united and taken up arms in a battle which Odin unwillingly must join against the forces of Jotunheim whose ruthless ruler, Loki, is enslaving humans to mine for the precious metal, Blóstein.

Befallen by a lack of strength and resources necessary to stand against Loki’s army of savage footmen and bloodthirsty wolflike berserkers, Odin must venture with his friends Thedrick, Vili, and Ve beyond the boundaries of Midgard in search of an ally to stand with them against the Jotun invasion.

Follow young Odin’s adventure across the realms of the fascinating ancient Norse world where his search for an ally leads him to frightening discoveries about the truth of a forgotten past.
