Is 'hustle and grind' really the message of The New Way? Is financial freedom really what it's about? is 'living life on our terms' really the summit of this mission? Is The New Way about becoming more successful than our generations before us? This book is a conversation about The New Way to Live, Lead, Earn, and Give. It is a collection of insights and ideas about how we can, and how we are, changing the world. It's an invitation to the New Superheroes―the people all over the world who give a sh*t about each other and our earth―to lighten up in our work as Game Changers. It's a time stamp so that our kids and their kids can read it and say, "oh, so that's what you were growing through back then..." The New Way is not just about having more money at the end of the month. Success as we'd been taught isn't sufficient. Success to our generation looked and felt completely different to what it looked and felt like to generations before us. We millennials do not thrive off gains in a capitalist society. The religious separation that our parents' generation know is torturing our hearts. Our planet isn't a place for us to holiday, but a place of permanent residence with the requirement that we nurture and love our Mother Earth as our one collective mother. There is no 'top' when it comes to leadership, but instead we're all about the power of tribe. We don't care to move forward at lightning speed, but would rather to stop and go back to our indigenous roots and ensure that ancient wisdoms are never forgotten. Taking care of our brothers and sisters who are without basic necessities is the only way we all win. Play is everything. We're here to change the world, but we've gotta stop taking it so seriously. We're here to use our talents and abilities to create epic sh*t, but we've gotta stop missing the point along the way. It's time for us to thrive like no generation before us ever has. It's time for us to show the world how good it's really meant to be. This book is for the millennial conscious leaders and entrepreneurs- those ushering in the new paradigm through their work, art, businesses, leadership. "This message is a massage. It will change your cells. Its chief channeler PK kneads it masterfully into your body's tissue with her wonderful way with words. After reading it, all of a sudden I found that my deepest doubts and fears were disintegrating. I have been hired by Earth; it all makes sense now! This piece is such an important piece of history in the evolution of humanity." ―Marc-John Brown. Serial Entrepreneur/Humanity Frother/Voice for the indigenous "Earth Is Hiring is the most important book of the time for conscious entrepreneurs and our generation. It resonates with my soul so deeply....I cried, laughed, and vibe'd as high as you'd expect when reading what feels like a channeled message from Mother Earth herself. Earth Is Hiring was exactly was the exact reminder that I needed."―Makenzie Marzluff "Book is brilliant Peta.

The Martindale sisters are about to embark on a reckless journey of deceit, rivalry and betrayal that reaches a thrilling and romantic climax as the Titanic sails for New York... At first, handsome, freewheeling Clive Cavendish does not appear to be an ideal catch for Julie. But when a whirlwind seduction leads to love and marriage and Clive's ambitious schemes begin to pay off Julie is more than happy to be the wife of an up-and-coming painter and the mother of his children. Anna's suitor, Howard Buskin, is rich, moody and reclusive. He prefers painting Dartmoor's brooding landscapes to courting the beautiful young woman his mother has chosen to be his bride and from the first their uneasy, loveless marriage totters on the brink of crisis. Only when American art collector Teddy Norris enters their lives with a proposal that Howard cannot ignore, and an easy-going charm that sweeps Anna into a tempestous affair, do the sisters begin to question their loyalty to their husbands and to each other. A loyalty that will be tested to the limit on the first, and last, Atlantic crossing of the White Star's new super-liner, the unsinkable Titanic - a voyage not all of them will survive.
In this compelling novel, sequel to Lantern for the Dark, author Jessica Stirling weaves a poignant tale of passion and deceit... In Europe, the war against the French rages. In Ayrshire, a different kind of battle begins . . . Once, Frederick Striker betrayed, then abandoned Clare Quinn. Now, she is no longer a guileless, impressionable innocent but a well-to do widow, mother of a young daughter whom she must protect from his predatory charm. But when Frederick and Clare meet each other once again, their deadly game of passion and deceit will inevitably bring ruin to one of them . . . The follow up to Lantern for the Dark, this turbulent tale of duplicity and desire sees Frederick and Clare tossed together once more.
Jessica Stirling continues the epic of love, greed and betrayal that began in The Island Wife in her magnificent novel, The Wind from the Hills. For Innis and Biddy, daughters of the embittered Vassie Campbell, life has changed greatly from the days when they were poor crofters. Innis, the mother of three young children, has found that marriage to handsome Michael Tarrant is utterly different from the idyll she expected. And Biddy has become only too accustomed to being a wealthy widow who keeps herself aloof from both the life she once knew and her dead husband's family. But though the sisters' lives seem set, they are destined to change once more. For Innis, a temptation to a better life may have to come too late--and for Biddy, courted by an ardent new suitor, happiness may have come at last. Set against the background of an island off the coast of Scotland that is being forced half-willingly into a new era, the story of the two very different sisters and their very different longings is one of the most memorable that Jessica Stirling has created.
Susanne Thorne is an orphan of means, one reason why Bette Hollander carries the young English girl off to her home in far-away Scotland. Bette would be more than happy for Susanne to fall in love with her handsome, headstrong son Louis, for marriage to the little heiress would repay old debts and restore the Hollander family's fortunes. But love cannot be delivered to order and as Susanne grows up and proves to have a mind of her own, Bette's plans for a match made in heaven seem fated to end in disaster.
