Beyond Wealth

It's not all about the money; the key to true riches Leo Tolstoy said, "Nobody knows where the human race is going. The highest wisdom, then, is to know where you are going." Yet many today chase the false rabbits of success: status, luxury, reputation and material possessions. In the quest to "have it all," our lives often lack real meaning and purpose. Beyond Wealth is the antidote. New York Times bestselling author Alexander Green takes things right down to brass tacks: We are here for a short time. Knowledge is limitless. Therefore, the most critical knowledge is not any particular skill but rather wisdom about "how to live." Fortunately, men and women have had several thousand years to think about what it means to live "the good life." And the answers found here, from Plato and Aristotle to Mahatma Gandhi and Stephen Hawking, will both surprise and delight you. Beyond Wealth provides insightful commentary on the most important aspects of our lives: love, work, honor, trust, freedom, death, fear, truth, beauty and other timeless issues. The book is both a thought provoking read and the ideal gift, guaranteed to ennoble, uplift and inspire.

Happy Clouds Happy Trees

Amazingly, the same author refined the message even more a decade later, telling his readers to Stop Acting Rich and Start Living Like a Real Millionaire (Stanley 2011). Banking on folk wisdom may not actually pay off.

Happy Clouds  Happy Trees

Readers will know Bob Ross (1942–1995) as the gentle, afro’d painter of happy trees on PBS. And while the Florida-born artist is reviled or ignored by the elite art world and scholarly art educators, he continues to be embraced around the globe as a healer and painter, even decades after his death. In Happy Clouds, Happy Trees, the authors thoughtfully explore how the Bob Ross phenomenon grew into a juggernaut. Although his sincerity in embracing democracy, gift economies, conservation, and self-help may have left him previously denigrated as a subject of rigorous scholarship, this book uses contemporary art theory to explore the sophistication of Bob Ross’s vision as an artist. It traces the ways in which his many fans have worshiped, emulated, and parodied him and his work. His technique allowed him to paint over 35,000 paintings in his lifetime, mostly of mountains and trees in landscapes heavily influenced by his time in the Air Force and stationed in Alaska. The authors address issues of amateur art, sentimentality, imitation, boredom, seduction, and democratic practices in the art world. They fully examine Ross as a painter, teacher, healer, media star, performer, magician, and networker. In-depth comparisons are made to Andy Warhol and Thomas Kinkade, and mention is made of his life in relation to Joseph Beuys, Elvis Presley, St. Francis of Assisi, Carl Rogers, and many other creative personalities. In the end, Happy Clouds, Happy Trees presents Ross as a gift giver, someone who freely teaches the act of painting to anyone who believes in Ross’s vision that “this is your world.”

Private Mortgage Investment

Private Mortgage Investment Senior lending officer Ralph Abbott pens new book on achieving financial freedom. Thomas J. Stanley, Ph.D., wrote in his book Stop Acting Rich...And Start Living Like A Real Millionaire, “Real safety is not in a diversified stock portfolio. One of the reasons that real millionaires are economically successful is that they think differently. Many a millionaire has told me that true diversity has much to do with controlling one’s investments; no one can control the stock market. But you can for example, control your own business, private investments, and money to lend to private parties.” It was this quote that inspired author and senior lending officer Ralph Abbott to help others worried about their 401k and retirement nest eggs, penning his new book Private Mortgage Investment. “My reason for writing a book about private mortgage investing is not to promote another get-rich-quick scheme or investment fad,” explains Abbott. “It’s about showing you an alternative investment concept – one that is old and respected.” In this straightforward and practical book, Ralph Abbott gets you quickly acquainted with simple strategies using mortgage investments to enhance your bottom line. Private Mortgage Investment cuts to the heart of successful mortgage investment, providing readers with a complete understanding of private mortgage investing fundamentals. It shows how to use direct investments, mortgage pool and investment clubs to get into the private mortgage investment business. As we move into the second decade of the 21st century, an increasing number of people just like you are discovering private mortgage investing. It’s a basic, fundamental function of real estate finance that, with a focused effort and basic knowledge, has been demonstrated to be a safe and profitable industry for a growing number of investors who are either approaching or in retirement. “And do you know what? If you have ever owned a bank CD, or have a savings account or checking account, you have already been investing – but you have not received the benefits.”

Have you ever had a bad boss? Do you think so many bosses are bad because they’re “jerks” or because they just don’t know HOW to lead? Bottom line, there are some jerks out there, but Ken Pasch’s research shows that most bosses are frustrated because they just don’t know how to lead. That frustration leads to some very bad relationships and outcomes. On Course helps begin turn this around. Unlike so many other books that tell professionals what a good leader should be, On Course is the first step in learning how to become a good leader. The revolutionary model business professionals learn is the result of Ken’s transition from being one of those bad bosses, years ago, to becoming a successful leader. Don’t take Ken’s word for it, listen to the testimonials from others. Then, dive into On Course to discover how you, too, can become a great leader and soar!

How to Think About Money

NEW INTERNATIONAL EDITION A cult smash in the US, How to Think About Money is the ultimate smart thinking book for those who want a more prosperous and less stressful financial life. There are those who think the goal of investing is to beat the market and amass as much wealth as possible, that street smarts and hard work ensure investment success, and that the road to happiness is paved with more of everything. And then there are those who get it. Want a richer, calmer financial life? Jonathan Clements, longtime personal finance columnist for the Wall Street Journal, is here to help. His goal: to provide readers with a coherent way to think about their finances, so they worry less about money, make smarter financial choices and squeeze more happiness out of the cash they have. How to Think About Money is built around five key ideas: - Money can buy happiness, but we need to spend with great care. - Most of us will enjoy an extraordinarily long life - and that has profound financial implications. - We are hardwired for financial failure, so sensible money management takes great mental strength. - We need to bring order to our financial life - by focusing on our paycheque, or lack thereof. - If we want to add to our wealth, we should strive to minimise the subtractions. With rave reviews from readers (including over 75 five-star ratings), praise from some of the greatest investors of all time ("Easy to understand, essential to follow." - Jack Bogle), this is the ultimate smart thinking book for everyone interested in making their money work for them rather than the other way around.

Are your finances getting out of control? Have you made mistakes with your money? Are you in more debt than you’d like to admit? Cherie Lowe has been there. She and her family found themselves $127,482.30 in debt (did your jaw drop?). They hadn’t bought a yacht, blown it on designer clothes, or purchased a mansion. The small, everyday expenses of living just added up—until suddenly, the Lowes were being threatened by one dragon of a debt. But through hard work and with God’s help, Cherie’s family vanquished this foe, one bill at a time. And you can too! In Slaying the Debt Dragon, Cherie shares how her war on debt made her financially free, strengthened her marriage, taught her children valuable money-management skills, and brought her whole family closer to God and one another. As you read her battle tales, you’ll be armed with the weapons you need to fight your own financial foes. With God, all things are possible—and your inspired happily ever after can begin today.

How to Be Richer  Smarter  and Better Looking Than Your Parents

Striking out on your own for the first time is exhilarating. But in a culture full of bad advice, predatory banks, and splurge-now-pay-later temptations, it can also be extremely dangerous—leading you to make financial decisions that could hurt you for years to come. Combine this with a slumped economy, mounds of student loans, and dubious examples from reality TV stars to politicians to your own parents, and it’s no wonder so many twenty-somethings are struggling. Twenty-three-year-old Zac Bissonnette—the author of Debt-Free U—knows exactly what you’re going through. He demystifies the many traps young people fall victim to in their post-college years. He offers fresh insights on everything from job hunting to buying a car to saving for retirement that will give you a foundation for a secure, stable, and happy life. In the process, he reveals why FICO scores are overrated, online job applications are a waste of time, car loans are for suckers, and credit card rewards are a scam. With detours to discuss wine connoisseurs, Really Broke Housewives, and Lenny Dykstra, Zac shows you how to make better choices today so you can be richer, smarter (and better-looking!) for years to come.
