Harness Your Knowledge and Apply Your Experience to Reinvent the Second Half of Your Career - featuring a foreword by Brian Chesky, cofounder and CEO of Airbnb In our increasingly accelerated world that venerates the new, bright and shiny, many of us in mid-career sense that the ground is shifting beneath our feet, leaving us feeling invisible, undervalued and threatened by the ´digital natives´ nipping at our heels. Chip Conley is not buying it, arguing that experience is on the brink of a comeback. At age 52, after selling the boutique hotel company he founded and ran for 24 years, Conley joined Airbnb as Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy. Though rich with experience, the industry veteran lacked the digital fluency of his 20-something colleagues. He quickly discovered that he´d been hired as a teacher and mentor, but was also in many ways a student and intern. What emerged is the secret to thriving as a mid-life worker in today´s world: learning to marry wisdom and experience with curiosity, a beginner´s mind, and a willingness to evolve. Igniting a bold, urgent conversation about age and ageism in the workplace, Conley liberates the term ´´elder´´ from the stigma of ´´elderly,´´ and reveals the value of wisdom that can only be accrued through years on the planet. Wisdom at Work will teach you how to be indispensable in the second half of your working life. Chip Conley is a New York Times bestselling author, hospitality entrepreneur, and leader at the forefront of the sharing economy. At age 26, he founded Joie de Vivre Hospitality and turned it into the second largest boutique hotel brand in the U.S. Chip is now the Strategic Advisor for Hospitality and Leadership at Airbnb. He is the recipient of hospitality´s highest honor, the Pioneer Award.
The church spends $1.5 million for every one new follower of Jesus. Apple sells 26 iPads every minute. What is it that makes Apple so exciting and Jesus so boring? What is it that compels someone to bring their iPod everywhere and their Bible nowhere? In a word: marketing. Jesus is a life-changing product with lousy salespeople - people who are intimidated and embarrassed by the word ´´evangelism´´ and who show more enthusiasm for their gadgets than their God. What would life look like if we could market our faith like Nike and Apple market their products - sharing relationally, from person to person? Using examples from these and other successful companies, author Tim Sinclair challenges Christians to throw out their casual attitudes toward faith and sign on for a marketing campaign for the Savior. Written with the wit and wisdom of an experienced marketer, Branded peels away the feelings of fear and explains how to share faith in ways that are honest, authentic, and, most importantly, effective. 1.

From New York Times –bestselling author: “A book to share with every woman in your family” honoring the wisdom and spirit of older women (Evelyn Champagne King). These women have lived decades raising children, caring for husbands, and creating nests out of which children fly to be productive members of society. Often being forced to observe more than participate in the events around them, they have unique insights that can help future generations not merely survive, but thrive. In Ageless Women, Timeless Wisdom , Dr. Lois Frankel gives center stage to these wise women. From Los Angeles, California, to Shanghai, China, women aged seventy and older share thoughts and stories that are heartwarming and hilarious; insightful and witty; philosophical and practical: “When life gives you lemons;” says Jo-Ann Mercurio, born in 1941, “add vodka.” This book, with lovely illustrations by Lisa Graves, is an important record of women’s reflections on lives well lived. It is sure to be passed from grandmother to daughter to granddaughter. “I love this book! Wisdom and wit worth remembering and sharing.” —Josh Berman, creator and executive producer, Drop Dead Diva and CSI “It would be a shame if the humor and inspiration from these wise women was lost. Dr. Lois captured their spirits . . . This is truly a good read.” —Evelyn Champagne King “It’s about time for a book like this. For too long the wisdom of older women has gone unnoticed, unappreciated, and undervalued . . . Sure to put a smile on your face and the faces of the women you share it with.” —Rita Coolidge

On the heels of the best-selling success of The Ultimate Gift and the major motion picture from 20th Century Fox based on that book, Jim Stovall brings you The Millionaire Map. This is the book I wished was available 30 years ago when I was desperate and broke with only a dream of one day being a millionaire. Now, as a multimillionaire, I want to share the wisdom I´ve gained from the journey and provide other travelers with a map to guide them on their journey.´´ (Jim Stovall) The Millionaire Map reveals... You can´t expand your wallet until you expand your mind. Becoming a millionaire is not just about all the things you want to have, but it´s about the things you want to do and give. In order to climb to the financial peak, you´ve got to crawl out of the valley of debt. You will either voluntarily control your money now, or it will force its control on you later. The vast majority of people never arrive at their destination - not because they don´t have what it takes but because they don´t manage what they have. Jim Stovall has enjoyed success as an author, athlete, investment broker, and entrepreneur while dealing with the challenge of blindness. During his remarkable life, Jim has been a national champion Olympic weightlifter, as well as the author of 20 books.

For us to perceive any of the worlds that exist beside our own, not only do we have to covet them but we need to have sufficient energy to seize them. In this revolutionary book, Carlos Castaneda offers listeners the key to this energetic conditioning for the first time, revealing a series of body positions and physical movements that enabled various sorcerers, and their apprentices, to navigate their own sorceric journeys. By sharing this centuries-old wisdom, Carlos Castaneda makes it possible for listeners to travel to some of these other realms, which are as real, unique, absolute, and engulfing as our own world. Written with humor, clarity, and authority, Magical Passes further illuminates the true meaning of sorcery and magic. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Luis Moreno.
