Strong emotions and sound financial decisions don’t mix, says veteran financial consultant Wayne Wakefield, CEO of Nevada Business Corporations. In fact, money and feelings mix so badly when it comes to personal success, it’s one of his “40 Unbreakable Laws of Money,” (http://40-laws.com/): No. 12 -- You Will Always Make the Wrong Decision When You’re Angry or Emotional! “If you’re trying to broker a deal, you should expect to be offended; for example, nearly every real estate negotiation in which I’ve been involved, someone has gotten offended – and that’s tactical,” says Wakefield, whose new book reflects the wisdom gleaned from three decades in business.“I used to get upset and emotional when someone would offer me a ridiculously low offer on a valuable property until I realized that it’s all part of the game.

The author of Passages, a book that changed millions of lives, now lays bare her own life passages in a captivating memoir that reveals her harrowing and ultimately triumphant path from groundbreaking 1960s "girl" journalist to fearless bestselling author who made a career of excavating cultural taboos - from sex, menopause, and midlife crisis to illness, caregiving, and death. Daring to blaze a trail in a "mans world," Gail Sheehy became one of the premier practitioners of New Journalism a the fledgling New York magazine, along with such stellar writers as Tom Wolfe, Gloria Steinem, and Jimmy Breslin. Sheehy dared to walk New York City's streets with hookers and pimps to expose violent prostitution; to march with civil rights protesters in Northern Ireland as British soldiers opened fire; to seek out Egypt's president Anwar Sadat when he was targeted for assassination after making peace with Israel; and to break the glass ceiling in a media world fueled by testosterone, competition, and grit. Daring: My Passages is also the beguiling love story of Sheehy's tempestuous romance with Clay Felker, the charismatic creator of New York magazine and the mentor who inspired her to become a fearless journalist who won renown for her penetrating character portraits of world leaders, including Hillary Clinton, both Presidents Bush, British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, and soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev, among others. www.gailsheehy.comΞ In 1945, an ambitious young psychiatrist was given what he thought was an opportunity of a lifetime. Thirty-three-year-old US Army psychiatrist Douglas M. Kelley was to assess the mental fitness of Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, Hitler’s second in command, and the top Nazi leaders before they stood trial at Nuremberg. He hoped to discover the essence of the “Nazi personality,” the common thread of mental illness that produced the worst criminals of the twentieth century. If he could identify psychiatric disorders and psychological traits common to the Nazi leaders, he could point to others among us capable of committing similar crimes. It grew into a hazardous quest into the nature of evil. In THE NAZI AND THE PSYCHIATRIST (Paperback, Sept 2014, PublicAffairs)--currently in development for stage and screen adaptation by Mythology Entertainment--award-winning journalist Jack El-Hai exposes the unusual relationship that took shape between Göring and Kelley in a small prison cell. Ξ Some women are great at it; Madonna, Lady Gaga, Gwyneth Patlrow. They reinvent themselves constantly. But plenty of us stay stuck. Something stops us from moving forward or making changes, even something as simple as changing our hairstyle. “It fascinates me how we all have the potential to redesign our lives to some extent and yet so often we stay stuck,” says thérèse, author of “Letter from Paris,” www.thereseblogs.com a new novel about a woman’s efforts to reinvent herself in work, love and life. It has won raves from celebrities ranging from Goldie Hawn and Miranda Kerr to Arianna Huffington. “Life is short and we owe it to ourselves to live the fullest life we can. So often we women tell ourselves we are too old for change, or that we aren’t talented enough or rich enough or any of the reasons we come up with to mask our fear.” Thérèse says. “ I am a big believer in leap and the net will appear.” Thérese is a nom de plume for author Lady Thérèse Robinson, who left England and a star-studded professional life there 12 years ago to move with her husband and two teenagers to golden California. Hungry for a change of direction and a new career, she began writing her take on life in the fast lane in Los Angeles and along the way, discovered a talent for storytelling. Ξ

He’s making some significant and exciting changes in how they market and distribute Willard Water. His background is in politics, communications and media relations. He worked for the Clinton Administration under the Secretary of Agriculture, and for Tim Johnson. Dr. John W.

Technically, the molecular structure of H2O is altered by a catalyst. As a result, the Catalyst Altered Water (CAW) acts as a normalizer on all living things not in a healthy state.

CliffsNotes Graduation Debt, Second Edition was inspired by Reyna Gobel's battle with student loan debt. In 2004, she found out she defaulted on a student loan she didn't know she had. With two loans per semester, she was not alone in this discovery. 20 percent of her generation had a defaulted loan. Based on recent statistics, nearly 15 percent of borrowers defaulted on a loan in their first three years after college graduation. She was able to get an affordable repayment plan and clear the default from her credit report. Getting out of default wasn't nearly as difficult as she thought. Now, it's even easier due to a July 1, 2014 law change mandating borrowers have an option for income-based default payments as low as $0 per month. Her mission with CliffsNotes Graduation Debt is to show other borrowers they can manage their student loan situations, too, if they have the right information.

Almost everyone has met a natural-born negotiator. You know the type: the person who can drive onto a car lot and drive off with a bargain well under the sticker price…or go to a flea market or antique shop and get an 18th century armoire for a quarter of its tag price…or walk into their boss’s office and walk out with a raise, even during a recession. These people just seem to have an inborn gift. Too bad about the rest of us! We’re doomed to forever pay sticker price on cars and antiques and shy away from tough money talks at work…right? Wrong, says Steven G. Blum. We all negotiate things all the time without even realizing it. Take steps to improve those abilities and you can change your life. “Let’s say your boss comes to you with a problem,” says Blum, author of Negotiating Your Investments: Use Proven Negotiation Methods to Enrich Your Financial Life (Wiley, 2014, ISBN: 978-1-118-58307-4, $40.00, www.negotiatingtruth.com). “A colleague, who was a key member on a big project you’re working on, has unexpectedly left the company. Ξ How do you know when you’re having an out-of-body experience? The first time it happened to Myrna Raquel Quiles, she thought she was sleeping – and she quickly realized she was staring at her body from above.“I know how it sounds – I’ve tried to reconcile what I’ve experienced with what doctors and other professionals offer as an explanation; it’s not PTSD; it’s not something I ate; everything was normal, except for that moment when I wanted to get back into my body, but I couldn’t,” says Quiles, author of “Twice Out of My Body, A Second Chance,” (www.TwiceOutOfMyBody.com). “I saw my face beginning to turn pale, then I began to turn a very light purple. I was desperate because, somehow, I knew time was running out. With all of my inner strength, I made my appeal, ‘Oh God, please help me.’ ” ΞΞ Many people—perhaps four out of five or more—are dissatisfied with their jobs. Why not pursue a dream? It’s up to you to create your custom-tailored career and define success your way. But how? Combine your burning passion with drive, determination, strategy, and commitment to pay it forward; find and nurture mentor support, stay steady on your path, and see the fireworks. SUCCESS ON YOUR OWN TERMS (Career Press, June 2014) will show you exactly how to do it. Living parallel lives as a Christian hip-hop artist/producer and a Fortune 100 executive and author, James Rosseau has merged the streams of his dual passions to make a difference in his own life and the lives of countless others. Learning to make and keep six promises during his diverse career, Rosseau now shows anyone in transition, looking for change or ready to act on their passion how to do the same. jamesrosseausr.com
