What do you do when you feel lost as a leader? Always Growing tackles a common leadership challenge: How to successfully motivate, develop, and empower a diverse group of people to work together and achieve remarkable results. David has risked so much. Accepting his first leadership role at Trendex has meant uprooting his family and leaving behind a comfortable and secure position. The only upside may be that he is moving back to the place he called home as a boy - a place where his sister, Kelly, still resides and operates a thriving garden center. David quickly realizes that he is in trouble. He has taken responsibility for a division that is destined for the chopping block if he doesn´t soon figure out how to motivate his employees, prioritize their work, and unify them as a team. Sharing his concerns with Kelly leads to a very interesting revelation... Can Kelly´s proven method for growing plants show him the way to grow his team? Always Growing is a warm and witty guide to becoming a stronger leader, whether you have been leading for two days or two decades. This clever gardening analogy will lead you and your team to a bountiful harvest. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Starbuck, Keli Lawing.

When Ohio governor John Kasich ran for president, his powerful message of hope and togetherness struck a chord with American voters. In Two Paths: America Divided or United, he carries that message forward by reflecting on the tumultuous 2016 campaign, sharing his concerns for America and his hopes for our future, and sounding a clarion call to reason and purpose, humility and dignity, righteousness and calm. ´´The country never looked so grand and magnificent as it did from 10,000 feet,´´ he writes of his time on the campaign trail, ´´and it was always a thrilling, faith-affirming thing to look out our window and see the sun splashing across Bryce Canyon in Utah, or the lights of the New York skyline at night as we flew past the Statue of Liberty, or an open field in the heartland that ran as far as our eyes could see.... I´d look out and think what an honor it would be to lead this great nation, what a blessing.´´ To be sure, the full story of the 2016 presidential race will be written over time, but to understand what it was to be on the front lines of one of the most divisive and corrosive campaign battlegrounds in history, listeners won´t find a richer, more thoughtful firsthand account than this one - a frank, refreshing assessment of the American dynamic and a clear path we might follow toward a more promising tomorrow. As Governor Kasich reminds us, America is great because America is good - and because Americans have stayed true to who we are: one nation, under God, indivisible. 1. Language: English.

I wrote the New York Times best seller, The Awakening Heart, because of a tremendous outpouring of love and questions created by my first book Embraced by the Light, which had become an international and New York Time best seller. Its audience responded with overwhelming enthusiasm, love and trust. Many wrote to share intimate details of their own lives that led me to answer their concerns with more of mine, but within an approach they could more easily relate to. I felt sharing more of my life was like sharing with loving friends. The Awakening Heart is a work of love, but at times it took all that I had to write it. I am a private person, so sharing more about myself, especially after being in the public spotlight, was difficult and challenging. Yet, I ´´knew´´ that my continuing journey here is not about me. I am to teach others not to fear, but to have hope in God. My commitment to God is sometimes a struggle, however, I can´t quit, I won´t quit! The Awakening Heart can build your trust and personal relationship with God. And in doing so, it will enhance your life through your own ´´awakening´´. The Awakening Heart answers hundreds of questions - perhaps one of them is yours? Questions such as: What does Jesus look like? What was it like to die or what was it like coming back? Did you see family there? What about different religions, races, gay people, premonitions, dreams, spirit contact, and letting go of those about to die? What about hell...and much more.... In Embraced by the Light, I give an account of my experience in the spirit world. In The Awakening Heart, I write what it is like to return to this world that seemed loveless. I tell of my deepest grief and heartache that led me into severe depression, which led to agoraphobia. I write of lessons learned and eventual understanding of them, and of the miracles to my healing. And from that healing, I was able to wri... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Betty J. Eadie.

With the world around us changing at a seemingly breakneck pace and technological advancements radically altering the manner in which we communicate and do business with each other, far too many people are falling prey to fraudsters who understand all too well how to take advantage of our rapidly changing world. Ian Leaf´s newest work focuses on addressing this important issue by demonstrating how people can utilize new and innovative social media platforms like Instagram without placing themselves at risk of being scammed in some unforeseen way. In Fraud, Fraudsters and Scams: What to Watch for on Instagram, Ian Leaf uses his professional expertise to demonstrate the safest methodologies available regarding the effective use of Instagram, Facebook, and other social media platforms that are becoming increasingly critical communication tools both for personal use and for enhanced brand awareness. Through Leaf´s new book, consumers, brand managers, entrepreneurs, and others can continue to experience the many benefits made possible through effective social media use while eliminating any concerns relating to being taken advantage of by those engaged in deceptive behavior and outright acts of fraud. Leaf´s text begins by sharing circumstances he experienced with fraudsters taking advantage of consumers using Amazon´s platform, outlining how his efforts revealed this unscrupulous behavior and ensured that consumers were able to conduct business without the negative influence of scammers going to great lengths to manipulate product reviews for their own financial gain. His success in exposing this fraudulent behavior is not an isolated incident, as Leaf has enjoyed a long professional career in fraud detection and has assisted many consumers in learning how to recognize fraud and how to defend against being victimized. 1.
