The Top 10 Distinctions Between Millionaires and the Middle Class

 

If you're ready to take the journey to wealth and personal fulfillment, here's your ticket. In this life-changing audio book, entrepreneur and inspirational speaker Keith Cameron Smith tells you how to think like a millionaire and reap the benefits of a millionaire mindset.

The key to moving beyond the middle class and up the economic ladder is mastering ten vital principles, including:

  • Millionaires think long-term. The middle class thinks short-term. Create a clear vision of the life you desire, and focus on it.
  • Millionaires talk about ideas. The middle class talks about things and other people. Ask some positive "what if" questions every day, and bounce ideas off successful people who will be honest with you.
  • Millionaires work for profits. The middle class works for wages. Take calculated risks and learn to take advantage of good opportunities.

 

We all want to improve our financial position. In this inspirational and practical guide filled with savvy and sensible advice, Smith upgrades you from coach to first class. So if you follow these principles, you can transform your life, and realize your dreams

Leaders at All Levels: Deepening Your Talent Pool to Solve the Succession Crisis

 

Corporate America's leading consultant explains how top companies solve the problem of leadership succession

A serious crisis looms in American management today. More and more CEOs are failing; there remains an acute shortage of capable replacements. The true dilemma in leadership is the stagnant state of corporate leadership development. Because companies fail to hone their unit managers' leadership abilities, they are never able to fill their succession pipelines. With unit managers stagnating, companies have difficulty executing at every level, compounding the crisis. Now, bestselling author Ram Charan shows how top companies approach leadership development as a core competency, recognizing that an adaptable leadership pool is a competitive advantage, and focusing their attention on bringing out the best in the leaders they have.

Charan reveals exactly what's wrong with corporate leadership development and tells how to make it right. He explains the concept of a leadership "gene pool" and shows how companies can discover just what "DNA" they need to succeed. He also details how to uncover the hidden leaders in a company, when and where to bring in fresh talent, how to coach, measure, and reward leadership, and much more.

For CEOs, directors, and anyone involved in leadership development, Leaders at All Levels will be an eye-opening guide on how to get succession right.

"Meet a wise man: Ram Charan's frenetic pace, fierce intelligence, and deep access have made him an unrivalled source of real world insights into what business does right -and all too often wrong."

Book Yourself Solid : The Fastest , Easiest, and Most Reliable System for Getting More Clients

 

A one-of-a-kind, step-by-step guide to building a successful service business from the ground up.

According to the Small Business Administration, ninety percent of service businesses will fail within the first five years. They fail not because they don't offer great services and products, but because the owners are uncomfortable with traditional marketing and sales. The result is a frustrated, isolated, and overwhelmed business owner who does not know there is an entirely different, highly successful approach to marketing and sales available.

Now Michael Port shares his original proven system for getting more clients. Ninety-three percent of business owners who have used his seven core self-promotion strategies have experienced a thirty-four percent increase in their total number of clients and a forty-two percent increase in sales in the first year alone.

This practical, wildly inspirational guide will lift you up and give you the confidence you need to comfortably and authentically market yourself and your services, tap into an endless supply of quality referrals, and watch your business grow

"…Lead generation and conversion is the heart of any marketing enterprise, and Michael Port's ingenious and practical system is among the best I've seen."    - Michael E. Gerber, founder and Chairman, E-Myth Worldwide, author of The E-Myth Revisited

"…This is not a conceptual, theoretical look at how to succeed as a service professional. Instead, it's just what you need if you're stuck and you'd rather invest in your future (by doing the right kind of work) than complain about it later."    - Seth Godin, author of All Marketers Are Liars and Permission Marketing

"…Michael Port is the guy to call if you're tired of thinking small."    - Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind and Free Agent Nation

The Art of War for Women: Sun Tzu's Ancient Strategies and Wisdom for Winning at Work

"If ever there was a time in our history when women's leadership was essential, that time is now-and The Art of War for Women provides a blueprint for how women can step confidently into the leadership zone."
   - Dr. Lois Frankel, author of See Jane Lead and Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office

Forget everything you think you know about strength, strategy, and success. This brilliant adaptation of the ancient masterpiece The Art of War shows women how to use Sun Tzu's philosophy to win in every aspect of life.

Would you like to transform your weaknesses into strengths? Succeed at work without compromising your ethics? Integrate your style and personal philosophy into every action you take? If so, this audio book is for you. Chin-Ning Chu brings the eternal wisdom of philosopher-general Sun Tzu to women looking to gain a better understanding of who they are-and, more important, who they want to be.

In the West, when we think of war, we imagine battle, casualties, brutality. But Sun Tsu, who wrote The Art of War 2,500 years ago, was Chinese, and their view of war is not about fighting…it is about determining the most efficient way of gaining victory with the least amount of conflict. That's why his book is particularly appropriate for women, as most women are not comfortable with direct confrontation. Women are natural negotiators and problem solvers; most prefer win-win situations, rather than winner takes all.

Sun Tzu's book is about the application of strategies, and every strategy requires us to understand the people around us, our own strengths and weaknesses, our goals and our fears. We must integrate ourselves and our unique talents into the strategies we employ in order to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of our goals and dreams.

The Art of War is the most influential book on strategy ever published, selling tens of millions of copies worldwide. Written by one of today's foremost authorities on Sun Tzu, The Art of War for Women is sure to become a classic in its own right.

"At a time when the ideal of a full, fulfilling work and home life seems more difficult than ever to achieve, Chu's primer on becoming 'an effective strategist and warrior' will give doubters cause for reconsideration."

Andrew Carnegie

 

Andrew Carnegie, whose lifetime spanned the era from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution to the First World War was America's first modern titan. In this magnificent biography, celebrated historian David Nasaw brings to life this period of unprecedented transition-a time of self-made millionaires, scabs, strikes, and a new kind of philanthropy-through the fascinating rags-to-riches story of one of our most iconic business legends.

The Scottish-born son of a failed weaver and a mother who supported the family by binding shoes, Andrew Carnegie is the embodiment of the American dream. In his rise from a job as a bobbin boy in a cotton factory to being the richest man in the world, he was single-minded, relentless and a major player in some of the most violent and notorious labor strikes of the time. The prototype of today's billionaire, he was a visionary in the way he earned his money and in the way he gave it away.

Nasaw explains how Carnegie made his fortune and how he tried to pull the world back from a war he predicted. Brimming with new material, personal letters, diaries, prenuptial agreements, letters to and from presidents and prime ministers, Nasaw plumbs the core of this fascinating man, fixing him in his place as one of the most compelling, elusive and multifaceted personalities of the twentieth century.

"…brilliantly illuminates Carnegies's mad gathering of riches and then giving a great fortune away. Carnegie's children are certainly Bill Gates and Warren Buffet!" 
   - Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.

"…the authoritative volume on Andrew Carnegie that we have long awaited." 
   - Ron Chernow

Play Money Or I Quit My Day Job and Made Millions Trading Virtual Loot

 

Play Money explores a remarkable new phenomenon that's just beginning to enter public consciousness: MMPORGs, or Massively MultiPlayer Online Role-Playing Games, in which hundreds of thousands of players operate fantasy characters in virtual environments the size of continents. With city-sized populations of nearly full-time players, these games generate their own cultures, governments, and social systems and, inevitably, their own economies, which spill over into the real world.

The desire for virtual goods-magic swords, enchanted breastplates, and special, hard-to-get elixirs-has spawned a cottage industry of "virtual loot farmers": people who play the games just to obtain fantasy goods that they can sell in the real world. The best loot farmers can make between six figures a year and six figures a month.

Play Money is an extended walk on the weird side: a vivid snapshot of a subculture whose denizens were once the stuff of mere sociological spectacle but now-with computer gaming poised to eclipse all other entertainments in dollar volume, and with the lines between play and work, virtual and real increasingly blurred-look more and more like the future.

The Key

 

Are you struggling with your job, health, finances, or personal relationships? Is there something you desperately want but can't seem to attain, no matter how hard you try? Are you frustrated that you can't seem to achieve your dreams? If you are tired of struggling and want the true secret of unlimited success, The Key will open a new world of possibilities for you.

The Key reveals the missing secret for attracting wealth, health, success, happiness, and anything else that you want from life. From author and self-help guru Joe Vitale, this deeply enlightening life guide builds on his bestselling audio book, The Attractor Factor, and goes beyond the mega-hit movie and book, The Secret, to reveal a powerful and effective way to get more from every aspect of your life.

If you know you can achieve more but can't seem to make it happen, The Key reveals the psychological and unconscious limitations that are holding you back. Inside every person are subconscious "counter-intentions" that can sabotage you and prevent you from getting what you truly want. The Key reveals ten proven ways to remedy this situation, aligning your conscious and subconscious beliefs and ending self-sabotage forever.

Vitale takes complex issues of psychology and makes them easy to understand and apply to your life. Combining real, practical life wisdom with the spiritual insight to truly understand yourself, Vitale gives you ten tools guaranteed to open new opportunities and possibilities in your life. Use these amazing strategies to unlock the secret doors in yourself and marvelous, magical things will happen in every aspect of your life. The Key to success lies inside this audio book-and inside yourself.

This is the missing secret to unlocking your full potential and attracting anything you want in life. Turn The Key-and take the first step to freedom and fulfillment.

The Three Tensions

Profitability or growth? Results today or tomorrow? More synergy or better stand-alone performance? Ask managers which they want and most will tell you both. But they will also tell you that more progress on one front usually comes with less progress on the other. It's like squeezing a balloon in one place only to find that it expands elsewhere.

Based on four decades of experience working with some of the world's best-known companies, Dodd and Favaro explore the three tensions every company faces and how to overcome them. They draw on groundbreaking research into the 20-year performance of more than 20 chairmen and CEOs of corporations such as Alcan, Barclays, BP, Cadbury Schweppes, Cardinal Health, Dow Jones, Gillette, Reuters, Roche, Textron, and Xerox.

The authors put forward a radical new way to assess company performance: batting average-a measure of how often competing objectives are achieved at the same time. They show how this matters more than any other single measure of operating performance, and explain how you can raise your batting average to unlock better performance.

3D Negotiation: Powerful Tools to Change the Game in Your Most Important Deals

What You Do Away From The Bargaining Table Can Make - Or Break - Your Most Important Deals.

Stuck in a "win-win versus win-lose" mind-set, most negotiators focus on the face-to-face process at the table. In 3-D Negotiation, David Lax and James Sebenius urge bargainers to look beyond tactics at the table. Persuasive tactics are only the "first dimension" of the authors' pathbreaking approach, developed from their decades of doing deals and analyzing great dealmakers. Through moves in the "second dimension"-deal design-3-D Negotiators know how to unlock economic and noneconomic value by systematically envisioning and creatively structuring agreements.

But what really sets the 3-D approach apart, is its "third dimension": setup. Before showing up at a bargaining session, 3-D Negotiators "set the table" by arranging the most promising possible situation-laying the groundwork for adroit tactical interplay later. Acting away from the table, the bargainers ensure that the right parties have been approached in the right sequence, to deal with the right issues, engaging the right set of interests, at the right table, at the right time, under the right expectations, and facing the right no-deal options. This new arsenal of moves away from the table often exerts the greatest impact on the negotiated outcome.

Packed with practical steps and engaging examples, 3-D Negotiation enables you to reach remarkable agreements once you arrive at the table-deals that would be unattainable by standard tactics, no matter how skillful.

The Culture Code: An Ingenious Way to Understand Why People Around the World Live and Buy as They Do

 

WHY ARE PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD SO VERY DIFFERENT?
WHAT MAKES US LIVE, BUY, EVEN LOVE AS WE DO? 
THE ANSWERS ARE IN THE CODES.

Internationally revered cultural anthropologist and marketing expert Clotaire Rapaille reveals for the first time the techniques he has used to improve profitability and practices for dozens of Fortune 100 companies. His groundbreaking revelations shed light not just on business but on the way every human being acts and lives around the world.

Rapaille's breakthrough notion is that we acquire a silent system of Codes as we grow up within our culture. These Culture Codes invisibly shape how we behave in our personal lives, even when we are completely unaware of our motives. We can learn to crack these Codes and achieve new understanding of why we do the things we do. He has used the Culture Code to help Chrysler build the PT Cruiser-the most successful American car launch in recent memory, helped Procter & Gamble design its ad campaign for Folger's coffee, one of the longest-lasting and most successful campaigns in the annals of advertising., he's helped GE, AT&T, Boeing, Honda, Kellogg, and L'Oreal improve their bottom line at home and abroad. And now, in this fascinating audio book he uses it to reveal why Americans act distinctly like Americans and what makes us different from the world around us.

Understanding the Codes gives us unprecedented freedom over our lives. It lets us do business in dramatically new ways. And it finally explains why people around the world really are different and reveals the hidden clues to understanding us all.

"This book is just plain astonishing! Filled with profound insights and ideas that have enormous consequences for today's organizations. If you want to understand customers, constituencies, and crowds, this book is required reading." 
   - Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professsor of Business, University of Southern California and Author of On Becoming a Leader

The Way to Wealth, originally a preface to the 1758 edition of Franklin's beloved Poor Richard's Almanack, presents a brief fable of a local wise man, Father Abraham, quoting Poor Richard to an eager crowd. In this inspiring tale, Franklin steps out of the past and shares with you his famed maxims about wealth, knowledge, virtue and all other elements of business success.

As Michelle Singletary wrote in a column about The book, " At just 30 pages, this pocket- size book takes less than an hour to read but will give you a lifetime of financial wisdom- that is if you' re wise enough to follow the advice."

Message to Garcia by Elbert Hubbard

From a foreign correspondent and positive-thinking pioneer, this 1899 parable of wartime heroism imparts a powerful lesson on the benefits of taking initiative and responsibility in work and in life.
