Category: Business & Economics
A Compassionate Samurai is a bold, ethical, results-producing person who makes a difference for others as well as himself. THE COMPASSIONATE SAMURAI In life there are two types of people. The first are those who are nice, good-hearted, and compassionate but can't make much happen. The other kind can make everything happen - they're the creators, the go-getters, and the aggressive producers in society - however, they're often self-centered, greedy, and unethical. Wouldn't it be great if you could make things happen in a really big way but not lose your integrity? The Compassionate Samurai will show you the way to produce extraordinary results in a dog-eat-dog world and still maintain the highest levels of ethics. You'll learn: the way to always be satisfied and motivated regardless of your circumstances; why all people have freedom but very few have liberty; what competing commitments are and the ways they prevent you from having what you want in life; the secret to operating optimally in an untrustworthy environment; ways to make the shift from scarcity to abundance even if you're knee-deep in debt ... and much, much more! Brian Klemmer, a graduate of the United States Military Academy, is a best-selling author and highly respected speaker and seminar leader. His company, Klemmer & Associates Leadership Seminars, Inc., has worked with hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world, helping them produce measurable and long-lasting changes in their lives. His clients include Aetna Life Insurance, American Suzuki Corporation, General Electric, Walt Disney Attractions, and a dozen network-marketing and direct-sales companies.

This book explores the concept that the reality which is created by the consciousness inherent in the Western worldview is exceptionally limiting and probably unsustainable. After describing the contexts within which the book was written the author documents his personal journey in search of wholeness and meaning. From his experience of this journey he suggests that the wisdom, insight, and praxis contained within - what he describes as the meta-narratives of - Holism, Indigenous cultures, and Eastern traditions are manifestations of a holistic consciousness. The author explores the concept that a shift to such a holistic consciousness is required in order to redress the imbalance that is evident in all humanity's relationships, and he suggests that enabling such a shift in consciousness would have deep implications for the concepts and contexts of "community, adult learning, meaningful work, "and "sustainability."
In this parable, Linden Kozlowski is about to end it all, but he’s intercepted by a monk who convinces him that if he runs away from life, he’ll have to return, and his problems will just get worse. To escape the pain of the world forever, Linden stays alive long enough to make a mystical deal to never be reborn again. When a strange and unexpected turn of events occurs, Linden has second thoughts about his decision…but can he reverse it? His extraordinary adventure literally takes him to the ends of the earth, where he gathers allies, faces overwhelming forces, and realizes that he must decide if life is worth living and if love is more powerful than destiny.
Are you looking for alternative streams of revenue for your business, low-hanging-fruit opportunities, and better profit margins? According to McKinsey, a dozen or so emerging economies will collectively have an annual GDP of more than 20 trillion USD by 2020, exceeding that of the United States. In 2015, developing economies will account for more than half of the world's annual GDP. And the largest consumer markets of the next generation can be found in emerging markets like China, India, and Africa. With figures like these, "going global," particularly to emerging markets can present the opportunities for which you are looking?As markets in developed countries stagnate, slow, dwindle, or reach saturation, companies are looking for new horizons to sustain them in the next generation economy. This is no less true for entrepreneurs and SMEs. While going global has become a business imperative and entrepreneurs and SMEs look for new opportunities like larger firms, questions arise around how? How do we go global? How do we tap into markets far away with limited resources? How will going global make a difference? How long should we wait before going global?Going Global on a Dime answers the "how" of going global from both a strategic and practical approach, focusing on new and existing firms considering or just starting the going global process. It re-wires the framework for going global so firms can navigate the course dynamically while minimizing costs, managing and maximizing cash flow and return on investment, streamlining processes, and keeping the "small" firm ready to take advantage of profitable opportunities.
