Book Clubs

By Thomas Rogers

We are often told that reading is very important for us. It improves our vocabulary, keeps our brains active and gets us away from the constant digital distractions of modern life. However, many of us would rather be in bars in London or hosting parties, instead of staying in bed reading a novel.

So how can we read and stay entertained? You could take a glossy, gossipy fashion magazine around to the fancy, high class and posh top restaurants, bars and night clubs, but it wouldn't really look very sophisticated. However, you could always go to a book club! Here you are encouraged to read and can discuss the book at a brand new social hangout.

Not so long ago, if you were a member of a book club, you would meet up with fellow members in the front room of an elderly couple's house and talk about books between sips of tea and mouthfuls of crumpet. But now, instead of home baking, refreshments for book club meetings in great social hotspots and even in exclusive members clubs now include wine and canaps. Those days of tea, books and scones look like they're over.

So does that mean books have become an expensive hobby? Not at all: books are a cost-effective way of improving your memory, building your self-esteem and keeping yourself entertained. You also get to save on soft drinks and popcorn, because in most cases books are so much better than the movies made from them.

So next time it's a toss-up between a nestling in to a good book and a good, vibrant and tiring social life, always remember that you can combine the two by joining a book society and becoming part of your own VIP members club.

Make The Most Of KDP Select

By John Boyd

How Can Amazon's KDP Select Program Help Authors Succeed?

Many authors are still pretty ambivalent about the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) Select program. The program does allow independently published authors a chance to leverage some of the marketing power of the book selling giant. Yet, the program also forces authors to only sell their books on Amazon for as long as they stay in the program. I am not trying to convince anybody to use KDP Select, but I believe I can offer some suggestions that will help you use the program effectively and also to understand the benefits.

Here are the major benefits. You are free to offer your book for free for 5 days during each ninety day period. This can give your book, and your author name, a lot of extra exposure. Amazon will also put your book in the lending library. Authors do not get paid on free downloads, but they do get paid on the free borrows!

Why Give Your Book Away For Free?

We would all like to get paid for all of our hard work. On the other hand, setting a book's price to free for a period of time is a great way to get a lot of extra attention! This works the best if you also have other books. A reader may download your free book, like your work, and buy your other books!

Amazon Prime members get to borrow one book for free each month. As the number of Kindles has grown, a lot more people are taking advantage of the lending library too. I have found that the percentage of paid borrows is growing each month. This can be a nice source of revenue. Depending upon your book price, you may make more for a paid borrow than you do for a sale.

Free downloads do not count as sales, but they can push you up in the popularity lists. They can also give your book a lot more suggestion in some other book lists.

Many book reviewers take advantage of free promo days too. This gives authors a good opportunity to let reviewers know that there book is scheduled for a free promotion. This means you have a better chance to have your book mentioned on other websites and blogs.

There are also a lot of websites that list free books. Some of these websites get a lot of traffic, and this is a good way to spread the word about all of your books. Thousands of book lovers will learn your name.

Essay Writing Tips

By Miriam Marom

Think About The Topic As A Whole

When deciding upon the body of your essay itself, it is essential to think of the essay as a whole and after that split it up into smaller, more manageable areas.. Make sure you have a certain way of how you see the topic you have to write about. Take into account what can you connect with within the topic and are there any elements of the topic that you can compare with your life. This continuous thought process can help you concentrate on the topic and this assists you to start your essay writing process even before you put your pen to paper.

If you are wondering: \'how am I going to write my paper?\' then this is the answer.

Write A Couple Of Ideas Right Away

After being seated and thinking about the topic in general, it's a wise course of action to simply jot some ideas down about what just ran through your head concerning the topic of the essay. I usually use this tip when I write my paper. This will likely put your thoughts into a cohesive illustration which can be analyzed by you. Using this method you can read the important points and determine what is best for the essay itself.

Don't Force Yourself To Finish The Essay All At Once

As most people don't really know what they wish to concentrate on when writing an essay, the essay writing process must be a step-by-step course of action. Writing is a method that takes time and an aspect of an open mind, so don't pressure yourself. Have a snack or surf the Internet when you've got troubles with creating. Occasionally the very best ideas come to people because they took a break and they are sitting there doing something different and a good idea just hits them. Don't pressure yourself too much and just let the ideas come to you.

Start Writing The Essay Immediately

In case you wait to the last second and waste time, your essay writing will most likely suffer and it will take you much longer to actually compose the essay itself. My personal opinion is that this is among the best tips for writing your paper I could give you. This is actually the best writing tip for a very simple reason - unless you leave a sufficient quantity of time to complete your essay, you are going to start to stress out and you'll realize that your essay is not very cohesive since your brain is no longer working in good condition. Because of this , you should get to work without delay. You don't have to start actually writing the essay itself, but merely start contemplating what you are going to write, what the topic signifies and maybe even writing down some notes. It is a great way to start contemplating about your essay, put it into your train of thought and wait for the ideas to come through.

Find A Person To Go Through Your Work

The great thing you can do once your essay has been written would be to have at least one person read it. Probably the most vital point of an excellent essay is that it makes sense generally, so you should ask at least one other person if reading your essay made sense for them, including all the points you've made and all the facts you stated.

Too Much Month At The End Of The Money?

By Scott Shimberg

Do you know people who find themselves looking for jobs, or maybe their present jobs can't handle their everyday expenses? Are they your friends, your family, your neighbors?

Wouldn't you want to help them to develop their existing financial reality? By taking action, every person can take control of their life and look after their families easily.

Last year, my husband Scott, was introduced to the Numis opportunity. He knew it was a no brainer! A business opportunity, without the need of capital outlay, with an incredible compensation program, Accumulating assets of gold and silver, along with a 5-year buy-back assurance. What other business opportunity offers something like this? Just how can someone NOT take this opportunity?

I had been a little slower to catch on to the chance and how it can impact us. I had a traditional job that I enjoyed that needed prospecting and I had been hesitant to have to do it after work too. Scott was calmly persistent, realizing I would come around. I soon discovered the difference between a J-O-B and what we certainly have now......

Gathering assets and creating a recurring income stream was very logical, but what caught me most was the positive change this industry is having on my husband. He is exercising every day, something I have attempted to get him to do for years! He is reading and listening to great personal growth learning things like Tony Robbins incantations and Books by Darren Hardy. As the economy continued to be in downfall, he remained positive. If interactions with friends get negative about all of the "negative noise" out there, he talks about collecting assets with a sincere smile, glimmer in his eye and positive energy.

Everybody needs hope - Hope that their home loan can get paid and meals can be put on the table for dinner. Hope that a family vacation this year could be possible. Hope that money can be saved for our children to go to college. Hope that a pension savings may be put away and we don't have to work until we are 80 (unless we want to).

Let's turn that Hope into reality. Collect assets and build an income stream with like-minded people who want to help you succeed. People who want to provide you the training so that you can be successful. People who are as interested in Personal Development, as they improve themselves on a daily basis as they are on the road to financial and time freedom.

Until the Next Time

Child Abuse Survivor Stories Can Be Horrific

By Sharlene Fleming

Now the public is hearing the many child abuse survivor stories there are to tell. Innocent children are no longer expected to remain quiet while the victimization continues. This was not the case with victims not all that long ago.

One of the most common threads is the self shame that these people share. Even into adulthood many will speak of feeling that they deserved the punishment. Something they did had to have been very wrong or these acts would not have been performed. As much as they despise the abuse, they continually try to make up for whatever wrong they did and get their abusers to love them.

Not all mistreatment is done by sexual or physical means. Many children receive no bruises whatsoever. Yet they are as distraught and victimized as others with horror stories to tell. They receive so much emotional degradation that they begin believing they are useless and no good. Again they will persistently work at 'making themselves better' so the torment will stop.

Another common trait among abused children is that the perpetrator is most often a family member or a close and trusted friend. It could be a parent; a relative; a pastor or priest, or a person that has been a family friend for years. Victims do not know who to tell due to shame or graphic threats against them or a loved one.

A person can be a highly respected member of the community. They may be married with children and be a model parent. These perpetrators take their deeds away from home to keep their reputation from being tarnished. They use the internet as a means of weaving their deceit and luring children to them. Parents are urged to keep a close watch on the people their child talks with. Despite any rules you have set, these men and women are experts in what they do.

Boys are not immune to the vile practices of the child abuser. The latest reports on the misconduct of clergy testifies to that. Men who feared speaking up are still coming forth to say they had been victimized. All that can be said for sure is that these actions have been going on for years and years.

If adults do nothing else, they must listen and learn from the young victim. Much can be done to help people in recognizing that something is not right. Begin at an early age to tell your child what improper behavior is, and that they must tell someone right away if it happens. Rarely do these children lie.

It is crucial to the proper development of any child that parents and other close family members are constantly on the look out for what may be indications that something is remiss. Sex and physical offenders are people that are suffering their own psychological disorders and they need to be stopped before any further harm is done. Children will shy away from their offenders out of fear and that fear should be obvious to the onlooker. Always give your child permission to relate any child abuse survivor stories they may have to tell.

Let's take a Look at Leadership Under The Hood...

By Heidi Shimberg

They say some individuals are simply "Born Leaders." As a kid, my mom and many other people used to tell me that I was a "natural born leader." The way my mother tells it, I was 7 in Girl Scouts and she came to watch a production that the Scouts put on. She asked the mother in control at the end of the production just how it was put together and she said, "Heidi have written it, directed in it and starred in it." My proud mother immediately proclaimed, "she's a born leader."

Despite my mom's urban legend, I simply don't believe that people are really born leaders. True leadership requires an intense understanding of exactly what others need, want and envision - we are simply not born with this cognitive ability. However I DO think that there are lots of leaders in our everyday lives, individuals which we may not identify as leaders, but their leadership is obviously present.

John Quincy Adams once said, "If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."

Who does this make you think of?

I think of a Parent.

Our children do not know what they really want as infants, we pave the way of Possibility in front of them to inspire them to DREAM. We provide them the resources to go to school and train them at home so they continually LEARN. We inspire our children to always DO more. We encourage our children to BECOME all that they can be. The Leadership Role we have as parents within our homes is more significant than any other role we play.

In searching for a leader in the MLM business I look for people who exemplify what books by John Maxwell said,

"Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them."

Personally, I want a leader who has walked in my shoes, was battling to attain fame and can bask with me in the glory of my accomplishment. The characteristics of good leaders I have experienced at Numis Network are people who inspire me, relate to me and encourage me.

It's not about being born a leader, it's really about Seeing It, Believing It, and Walking the walk, Talking the talk, and Leading the Team down the Road into its Future. A Very Bright Future!

Until the Next Time

The Simplest Actions Can Have the Largest Impact

By Scott Shimberg

Book Review of The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy

We must start by telling you, that we have been followers of Darren Hardy. We read his magazine Success, faithfully each month and have the Success CD's in our car for constant personal growth.

You would expect by the title that this book would be about how exactly compound interest works. But in fact, Darren Hardy very effectively illustrates the way a financial principle may be used to one's life to have same results.

The lesson of The Compound Effect is that the routines we create, when compounded over long periods of time, form habits. These habits can lead to positive or negative results. Something as simple as eating a cookie a day or watching a certain amount of TV every day, when compounded over years can add up to a significant sum. For example, choosing to read a little more each day over watching TV, in one year's time this could equal several books. Many of us know, but Darren Hardy reminds us in the book that cutting out just 125 calories a day when applied over 31 months, equates to over 33 pounds lost in the typical person.

The book breaks down our everyday life into a tiny series of choices. It can be introduced in the same way, little instances of different people in all of all ages. It reminds us that our way of life move at high speeds with little for self-reflection. Hence, the importance of getting the little things right - reading through (or listening to) good and informative books, exercising, etc. We acquire immediate and indirect rewards, as they have a compound effect.

This book reminds us that it is the little initiatives, done frequently over time that provide us a direct impact that compounds as time passes.

Getting To Know Dr. Mark Breiner

He was appointed the chief of dental prosthesis there. Dr. Mark Breiner started his own private practice in Fairfield, Connecticut in 1973 after resigning from the Army.

Dr. Breiner had been one of the very first doctors in Connecticut to be treating patients suffering from TMJ in the 1970s. While his TMJ patients were much relieved of their suffering, even other unrelated complaints began to disappear as well. This situation made the good doctor realize that dentistry, when treating patients for physical illnesses, was one of the missing links that many had not explored deeply, and which was needed to be done immediately.

By doing extensive research for some 25 years, he revealed many secrets of the human body in relation to dentistry and published a book about it under the name Whole Body Dentistry. The book shows us how the dental component and better health standards go hand in hand. More than 30,000 copies have been sold so far.

Dr. Mark A. Breiner is a member as well as Fellow of many well recognized academic institutions in the country. He is also a Charter member, Board member, and Fellow of some other institutions. Other than that, he holds memberships with the Holistic Dental Association, National Center for Homeopathy, Etc.

He was also appointed the president of the International Oral Medicine & Toxicology Academy in 2003/2004. Backed with a Masters from Bridgeport, not only is he an author but also a very fluent speaker as well. Many people including professionals have attended his lectures and found them to be very useful when it came to their fields.

He is one well-seasoned and most sought after professional by the media and addresses many issues regarding Whole Body Dentistry, the risks that associate with traditional dentistry, as well as how to integrate conventional dentistry with holistic dental procedures and concepts successfully. Radio shows such as the Aware Show, Wisdom Network, Gary Null Radio, Atkins Radio Show, etc. Have invited him to appear in their programs many times. He has also appeared on TV many times including WMAQ TV and WLS TV in Chicago, and Fox TV and RNN TV nationwide.

He now carries on with his private practice in Trumbull, Connecticut. He likes to keep his practice Mercury free and has been doing so for the past 25 years.

Changing the Way You Communicate

By Saleem Rana

Monday, October 26, 2012

Interview by Allen Cardoza

Ben Benjamin, Ph.D., and Amy Yeager Jeffrey spoke to Allen Cardoza from Answers for the Family on L.A. Talk Radio about their newly released book, "Conversation Transformation." The discussion focused on understanding why any conversation succeeds or fails. Mastering communication skills can help a person transform the challenging conversations in their family life, their social world and their work. The communication techniques taught in the book are grounded in the latest neuro-psychology research and the communication principles of SAVI (the System for Analyzing Verbal Interaction).

Ben E. Benjamin, Ph.D., is a consultant, coach, writer, and entrepreneur who has taught communication skills for more than thirty years. He is a certified Senior SAVI Trainer and much of his recent communication workshops and writings focus on teaching the principles of SAVI.

Amy Yeager is a writer, as well as an editor. She is likewise a certified Senior SAVI Trainer who has led workshops for organizations. In addition, she supplies personal coaching programs and teaches communication skills on her Internet seminars.

Can This Conversation Be Saved?

Communication breakdowns are bad news for our lives and work. They can be a source of irritation and frustration, and in some cases they can threaten our jobs, families, and friendships. Cardoza asked questions about the common factors in all communication breakdowns - from family crisis to electoral debates. He wanted to know how we can go about improving our conversations.

The guests said that the first point we have to understand is to specifically identify what's going wrong. We cannot solve a problem if we have no idea just what's creating it. Sadly, when it concerns communication troubles, the reason is typically challenging to find. When a conversation falls short, it's easy to criticize characters, agendas, or moods or to denounce sensitive problems as a difference of opinions-- yet all communication failures could be due to a specific combinations of words and vocal tones individuals are using in a conversation. "Transform Your Conversation" teaches the best ways to acknowledge the 6 patterns that most often trigger breakdowns in any interaction-- "yes-buts," "mind-reads," "unfavorable prophecies," "leading ideas," "problems," and "personal attacks."

Steve Paviina - Embracing the Law of Attraction

By Mike Jerome

When you first look at Steve Pavlina's ideas behind the LOA, if you are the right age, you may think it is something from the peace and love era of the mid 1960s. When you discover that Steve uses his own techniques all though his many businesses, and he has earned a considerable number of degrees, you could think he came originally from a well off background. He did not, and you could be stunned to find out that his search for private growth and development came when he was banged up in his late teens.

Do I Need an Individual Development Program?

You'll find a lot of explanations why many people are useful yet others are not. Very often it's just thanks to the way in which effective folks think. They're determined that they're not going to give up, while somebody in an identical scenario will chuck in the towel and fail. Steve shows individuals ways to be effective and think in ways which they will overcome the explanations why they aren't in a position to achieve what they want to. He has learned that what holds plenty of people back is most likely what happened in childhood and how folk are programmed to think while they're young. It's known as conditioning. If you're constantly failing at what you do - especially in business, or maybe your personal relations, we advocate you visit - you will be there with thousands of other visitors he draws each month. You might be astonished by the articles he's got on his internet site - most of them are truly useful for altering how you consider things. As an example, why do you hate to do some things? Frequently, since you have been unsuccessful doing something previously, you connect those things with failure. If you're running your own business, this may interpret something like being terrified to call folks on the telephone to request leads. Steve offers effective methods for getting over these Problems.

Personal Growth Means a Better Business

Steve states you can attract anything you want, so in business you can attract that which you truly wish, so the LOA will help you in achieving your targets and overcome Problems more easily. By having the power to remain positive and knowing the most effective way to by-pass these hindrances will be part of your own self-development. You progress or you give up, but with your own business and understanding the L. O. A that is not sure to occur.

Ideas from the LOA

Do you have goals or have you been just going thru the motions every single day doing what you have got to do with no plan under consideration? One really basic tip that Steve shows is if you truly want something, to firstly empty your head and focus on the stuff you would like. Exclaiming you really need a new house will not get you anywhere near to getting a fresh house, but by having set goals uppermost in your consciousness, they're going to drive you on to remain positive about your life and your business, making your goals a rather more attainable fact. If you are beginning a new business, these goals can drive you forward to when you can meet the first money goal you set, and then move on to set other goals. That's how entrepreneurs think every day, and with Steve Pavlina's Law of Attraction you will be able to condition your intelligence to ultimately think like they do.

Book review on "The Go Giver"

By Scott Shimberg

This book by Bob Burg & John David Mann is only 127 pages, but the 5 laws of business it teaches us will guide you to success that will last your entire lifetime. Whether a plane ride, or a long lunch at your desk, commit the time to enjoy this uplifting story and learn The 5 Laws of Stratospheric Success.Or follow an alternative way to enjoy the book over 5 days.

The story introduces a young man, Joe, he is a go-getter. But he has hit a low point in his sales-driven career. Then he is introduced to Pindar. Pindar offers to teach Joe his trade secrets, his 5 Laws of Stratospheric Success over a period of 1 week. These secrets are presented to him in a very mysterious way, by introducing him to 5 different people. The approach keeps the reader very engaged.

The story, of course, has a truly happy ending, but with a twist which will definitely take you by surprise.

There are a lot of specific "nuggets" and quotes all the way through the book, along with the 5 laws. But yet, there is a particular quote on page 108 that is very insightful:

"All the giving in the world wont bring you success, wont create the results you would like, except if you also make yourself prepared and capable of obtain in like measure. Because when you don't allow yourself receive, you're refusing the gifts of other people - therefore you shut down the flow."

As mentioned above, the book can be read in one sitting, but if you want to receive the "course" the same way Joe did, read as follows:

Day 1: Chapter 1-4

Day 2: Chapter 5-7

Day 3: Chapter 8-9

Day 4: Chapter 10-11

Day 5: Chapter 12-14

One law experienced per day.

Joe learns, and so will you: Be good and do good for others and good business will follow and eventually, riches.

How To Make Your Job A Calling

By Allen Cardoza

Monday, December 4th, 2012

Interview by Allen Cardoza

Two professors of psychology, Bryan Dik Phd and Ryan Duffy Phd who authored a book entitled "Make Your Job A Calling," were interviewed by Allen Cardoza from Answers for the Family on Los Angeles Talk Radio Show regarding why it is very important for young people to decide to view their job as a calling.

The study carried out by Bryan includes examining the mindset necessary for discovering significant work. In 2010, he won the Earlier Career Award from the Society for Vocational Psychology

The research carried out by Ryan centers on positive psychology and vocational psychology. Also, he is an editorial board member of the journals Counseling Psychology and Career Assessment.

Make Your Work a Calling

During the interview, the two professors swiftly pointed out that when work is viewed as a calling, it assumes an entire new flavor. Most people view their jobs either as a method to move up a status ladder or as a method to make a living or pass time. Individuals who work in order to make a living or to pass time generally do only what is required to maintain their jobs, while people who work in order to move a status ladder are usually more interested in making money and achieving influence than in making the world a better place. However, a third option is available: people can view their jobs as a calling. This means using one's natural gifts and abilities to enhance people's lives either indirectly or directly. Individuals who select this path experience higher job satisfaction for the reason that they focus on helping their communities.

The interview covered a broad spectrum of questions about what a teenager needs to do to find the right calling. For instance, Cardoza asked how teenagers could identify a calling and what options remained for a high school student who did not focus on good grades and could not get into a college of their choice. He also asked whether the interests that spurred a sense of calling remained stable over time and whether a part-time job or an internship was advisable.


One essential decision young men and women need to make is whether to enter the work force or go to college. But, earlier than this, they have to decide on the most appropriate vocational calling. The discussion went over a a number of issues about the process of deciding why teens ought to view their jobs as a calling, how an individual can select their best calling, and the best way to take action on a chosen job path.

The Story That Is The Alaskan History

By Casandra Newton

The name Alaska was derived from a scientific word meaning a basic land. In years 14, 000BC the Alaskan history was coming to existence. This was the periodic time that Asiatic group was crossing to the Western Alaska where the Alaskans lived. The Alaskans were divided in to groups; they were not as one tribe.

Mining of gold in this area created unity among the people living around back in 1890s. Alaska experienced a difference in the year 1912. The country had two islands that the Japanese came to rule over. The people of Alaska benefited a lot when gold was discovered.

The islands could have led to conflict as also the United States wanted to own it, as this led to national pride. A rise in population was experienced in this area because there were military bases in the area and also trading activities. The sudden familiarization gave Alaska statehood in the year 1959 January on third.

In the year 1964, Alaska made history when a disaster occurred. The earthquake disaster killed a total of a hundred and thirty one people leaving many injured. The outcome of the tragedy left so many villages empty and damaged.

In 1968, crude oil was discovered in Alaska and a pipeline made for that purpose in 1977. The pipeline supplied oil to many parts of the country. After its use, it later burst because it hit a reef hence made the crude oil to spill in the year 1989. The oil spillage led to loss of millions of gallons in Alaska.

The first Alaskans that originated from the coast of Asia and passed through the Western Alaska are today living in Canada. The farming activities like subsistence activities and cultural practices were totally different. But they did what they could together to show how they care and love each other.

The rapid growth of Alaska also determined the rate at which people flocked in there. The situation further forced insecurity in the area. The residents in Alaska differ with one another over the upcoming resources like gold mining. There were hostile groups attacking people in the area.
