Why Work Sucks and How to Fix It

Why Work Sucks and How to Fix It

Do you hate cramming all of your errands into the weekend? Do you resent having to beg permission to watch your kid’s weekday soccer game? Are you tired of seeing people who aren’t very good at their jobs get promoted because they arrive early and stay late? There’s got to be a better way—and there is! Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson show that everyone benefits when we change the focus from hours to outcomes. It’s just that our traditional definition of work—Monday through Friday, nine to five—doesn’t make sense in the always-on global economy. So, Ressler and Thompson created the Results-Only Work Environment. In a ROWE, you control when, where, and how long you work. As long as you meet your objectives, the way you spend your time is entirely up to you. Suddenly, work isn’t a place you go, it’s a thing you do. In a ROWE, there are no mandatory meetings or fixed schedules. You stop doing any activity that wastes time, and no one criticizes you for “leaving early” or “coming in late.” If you do your best work at midnight or on Sundays, go for it! ROWE sounds like a fantasy, but Ressler and Thompson have already made it a reality at Best Buy, a Fortune 100 company. They have proven that ROWE not only makes employees happier but also delivers better results. And now the authors are helping companies implement ROWE nationwide. Infused with passion and common sense, Why Work Sucks and How to Fix It will change the way you think about your job, your company, and your quality of life. Read it and join the revolution!

Life Sucks  Death Bites

36-year old actuary Gerald Blumenstein despised every aspect of his life. His butterball-esque appearance was unappealing, his dull job unnerving, his cramped apartment uncomfortable, and his love life nonexistent. And yet, not a soul in the world was more petrified of death than Gerald. In fact, Gerald Blumenstein would do anything to avoid dying, even if it meant remaining trapped forever in an existence that, quite frankly, sucked. Then, one fateful night, while attending a highly unorthodox therapy session mandated by his boss, Gerald Blumenstein died. Now his life will never be the same ...Life Sucks, Death Bites is a dark comedy about the inconveniences of daily life and nightly undeath, with some romance and a bit of psychotherapy thrown in for good measure.

Raze Warfare

Raze Warfare - brutal, sweet, bloody and heartfelt. An LGBTQ+ action romance series that packs a punch. The underworld has a booming economy, capitalising on those who can be snatched from the fringes of society. Those who won’t be missed. This season it’s all about who can snatch the human products with the best looks. Beauty really is a curse, when you’re on the streets. Kiddo is the scattered wallflower of his gang. Yet Kid has caught the attention of the mysterious snatcher hunter, Raze. And, he’s also managed to become the hottest thing on the snatcher list of ten out of tens. He’s practically an eleven. Kiddo may be the key to taking down the underworld snatchers. And Raze may be the key to keeping Kid alive, as the Raze gang must face the cunning of the rising underworld king, Yorak the Wolf. The Wolf loves a challenge, especially in the form of the original Raze, and the beautiful wallflower, who have challenged his empire. It suddenly becomes more dangerous to be coveted instead of killed. Raze Warfare centres around a diverse gang-turned-family, and the evolving relationship between Kiddo and Raze – opposites attract. Every night the gang wage war on the snatchers; fighting for social justice, empowerment, a challenge to the system. All while battling their own demons. Learning difficulties, trauma, street violence, addiction, class divisions, marginalisation, and human trafficking. Girls are kick-ass members of the gang. Sexualities are open. There’s a bisexual awakening. There’s some gender bending. There’s a vengeful vigilante, back from the horrors of having been sold. This is a contemporary, New Adult series. Join the action and enjoy the ride.

Raze vs The Wolf

“Razes, Razes, the Wolf’s prey … Razes, Razes all betrayed…” The Wolf is patient. He is the master of games. Especially when the prize is so attractive. To claim the original Raze for himself. While the Raze gang must stay true to their goal; busy waging war on people traffickers, the Wolf can play to win each of his own desires. The Wolf will stop at nothing to sink his teeth deeply into Raze, into Raze’s boyfriend Kiddo, and into all of the Razes that the underworld market hungers so desperately for. A gritty urban backdrop, gang warfare, a vigilante hero, a corrupt system, and a bisexual awakening. Join the action and enjoy the ride. Interview with the Author: Q. What could readers compare the ‘Raze Warfare’ series to? A. It has a similar tone to ‘The Outsiders,’ with a gang like a family of very different people who need each other. Q. What makes this series different? A. Girls are kick ass members of the gang. Sexualities are open (there’s a bisexual triad romance – why choose?). There are diverse racial backgrounds. There’s some gender bending. The enemy is more covert, but widespread – a corrupt underground system. And the gang members enforce vigilante justice, while battling their own demons – ranging from trauma to learning difficulties. Q. What do you love most about this series? A. I love that Kiddo and Raze are so different – opposites attract. Their deepening, first time gay romance felt so intimate and sweet and real to write.I especially loved including so many diverse kinds of people without feeling the need to centre the story on their race/gender/sexuality/difficulites, because people are people. I loved having them there, as they are, rolling with the punches as people do – rather than the storyline centring on any stereotypes. Q. What do you want your readers to know? A. Hearing from you feeds my soul. Feel free to reach out on Facebook or shelleycass.com. Read, read my pretties! And enjoy.
