New Book: Strength in Stillness-The Power of Transcendental Meditation by Bob Roth

41ttVCgvqvL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

Title:   Strength in Stillness

Subtitle:   The Power of Transcendental Meditation

Author: Bob Roth

Genre: Non-Fiction/Self-Help/Spirituality/Health

Format: Hardcover, Audio,  & eBook

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Pages:   224 pages

Publication Date: February 6, 2018

Synopsis:    Oprah Winfrey and Jerry Seinfeld. Ray Dalio and Ellen DeGeneres. Gwyneth Paltrow and Howard Stern. Tom Hanks and Gisele Bündchen.

What do they have in common? The answer is a Transcendental Meditation teacher named Bob Roth, who has spent the past forty-five years helping many thousands of people access their innate creativity and power through this simple, nonreligious technique. Roth’s students range from titans of business and the arts to federal prisoners, from war-scarred veterans to overworked moms and dads.

Medical experts agree that the epidemic of stress is damaging our physical and emotional health at younger and younger ages. While there is no one single cure, the Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple practice that dramatically changes how we respond to stress and life’s challenges. With scientifically proven benefits— reduced stress and anxiety, and improved focus, sleep, resilience, creativity, and memory, to name a few—this five-thousand-year-old technique has a clear and direct impact on our very modern problems.

Once a skeptic, Roth trained under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the twentieth century’s foremost scientist of consciousness and meditation, and has since become one of the most experienced and sought-after meditation teachers in the world. In Strength in Stillness, Roth breaks down the science behind Transcendental Meditation in a new, accessible way. He highlights the three distinct types of meditation—Focused Attention, Open Monitoring, and Self-Transcending—and showcases the evidence that the third, Self-Transcending, or Transcendental Meditation, is a uniquely accessible, effective, and efficient way to reduce stress, access inner power, and build resilience.

Free of gimmicks, mystical verbiage, and obscure theory, Strength in Stillness offers a clear explanation for how Transcendental Meditation can calm the mind, body, and spirit.

Featured Book: The Handmade Entrepreneur by Dani Marie

The_Handmade_Entrepreneur_without_shadow_v1

Title: The Handmade Entrepreneur

Author: Dani Marie

Genre: Non-Fiction/Business/Marketing

Format: eBook (176 pages)

Publisher: Principis Publishing

Publication Date: June 12, 2015

Synopsis:

Every day you wake up and eagerly visit your Etsy account (or website) to see how many sales, clicks, or “favors” it has received from shoppers, but for many, this routine only ends in disappointment. 

What if you could start your day out with an excited shout instead of a frustrated sigh? Unfortunately, selling handmade goods online is no longer as simple as throwing together a product listing and waiting for sales to roll in. There are now millions of people with handmade products and they are all eager to build a sustainable income. The Handmade Entrepreneur uses precise methods based on proven marketing techniques to set you above the competition. It teaches you how to create a genuine business you can count on rather than a bundle of shop pages and social media accounts built on a foundation of guesswork. 

What You Can Expect to Learn from This Book: 

•How to take DIY pictures that get clicks and sales 
•How to set up a shop that turns visitors into buyers in under two seconds 
•How to price your items 
•How to write titles and descriptions 
•How to brand your business with DIY techniques 
•How to rank your pages 
•How to find targeted audiences 
•How to build up your list of followers 
•Where to promote your listings 
•How to sell without selling 
•How to form relationships with people who can send you extra sales 
•How to start a “buzz” about your products 
•Which tools to incorporate into your business 

The goal of this book is to free you from having to rely on any third-party website for your sales. Yes, you can take advantage of platforms like Etsy, and you should, but websites come and go, and if all your sales come only from that website, you run into trouble every time there are algorithm changes, a saturation of sellers, or cheaper products to compete with. You are trying to generate sales, which means that you are trying to run a business, which in-turn means that you need a real business plan. Brick and motor stores don’t just buy a bunch of goods, throw them in a building, and hope people will come. They plan, study their target market, pick a perfect store location, and prepare to market themselves. Just because you sell online does not mean that you can skip all of these steps. You have billions of products to compete with online and a crowd of shoppers who have an overwhelming number of options before them. You must prepare your storefront, get your products ready, know your audience, and then know how to market to them. 

Optimizing Your Shop for Sales 

Dani starts out showing you how to prepare your products with photos that attract clicks and sales. It doesn’t just tell you how to do it, though. It SHOWS you. Thanks to the help of many carefully selected Etsy sellers, there are many example photos for each point. In addition to this, the author only shows you DIY photos to prove that you can do it all on your own. 
Next, Dani discusses how to optimize your shop. She goes through every aspect such as banners, profiles, descriptions, tags, and titles. You will learn how to optimize your pages so that people stay there instead of leaving instantly. This can be done by creating an inviting environment with images and content that buyers can skim through in under two seconds. If buyers can determine that your page is worth staying on in less than two seconds, you have won the battle. 

Finding Targeted Audiences and Marketing 

The issue with selling online is finding people who would be interested in your products. The book gives you several ways to locate your target audience so that you can send shoppers to your products and generate sales instead of just views and “favors.” Next, you learn ways to build up a list followers, how to stay engaged with them, and how to sell to them without actually selling. Just spamming links all over the place is not effective because you irritate your audience. You must tastefully put your products in front of shoppers.

New Release- Uber Chronicles: Field Notes From the Front Seat by Jessie Newburn

Low_res__Uber_Chronicles__Field_Notes_from_the_Front_Seat__by_Jessie_Newburn.png

Title: Uber Chronicles: Field Notes From The Front Seat

Author: Jessie Newburn

Genre: Non-Fiction/Urban Adventures

Format: eBook

Publisher: Stellium Communications

Publication Date: July 19, 2016

Synopsis:

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drive for Uber? Have you ever been curious as to what kind of people use Uber? Where they are going? What do they talk about during the ride? How do they behave, or misbehave?

This is the book to read!

Jessie Newburn’s “Uber Chronicles: Field Notes from the Front Seat,” the first in a series, answers those questions and more … in the form of storytelling.

Driving for Uber since early 2016, Jessie chronicles her experiences with each–and every–passenger, from the conversations with interesting people with fascinating stories, to the incredibly everyday, ho-hum-ness of people who just need a ride from one place to another.

But don’t let the ho-hum-ness of the ride fool you.

As Gabe Karpati, one of her earlier readers, says, “There is a relaxing magical quality to the way she writes these stories. A sweet quiet zen silence that is shining through every line. Jessie presents these encounters like a meditation, where the seer observes but doesn’t get entangled.”

Ten different days and nights out driving for Uber.
Fifty-six passengers.
Fifty-six stories.

So, come along for the ride. Join in. Listen in. And experience what Uber is like from the front seat of the car.

Uber Chronicles — Book Review

By Ahmed Ehimare Audu

The book Uber Chronicles: Field Notes from the Front Seat was loaned to me by a friend to whom I had spoken  about my interest in driving professionally for Uber. “Read it,” she said.

At first I was skeptical about reading it as I thought it was going to read like a highly technical driving manual on using Uber, but I was really amazed with the work done by the author of this book as she did a fantastic job of delivering a very readable and enlightening account of her experience driving for Uber.

The book is an excellent guide to newbie and experienced Uber drivers, passengers, enthusiasts or anyone looking for a good read. It highlights captivating stories from otherwise mundane journeys and with the conversational tone she uses when describing each story, each is really unique.

The book reads somewhat like a diary and is made up of ten unique chapters which introduce a series of trips she makes on a typical day driving for Uber. Each chapter has several trips and she makes a story which revolves around her passenger from each trip. The first chapter provides a background of the author and talks about her initial misgivings and concerns about professional driving after which she describes each of the rides for that particular day.

The subsequent chapters follow the same format and as it progresses the reader can easily see the increased mastery of driving with Uber and in her relationship with her passengers. At the end of each trip, she gives a key experience learnt from the trip which basically summarizes the main idea of that trip.

This book has really helped save me weeks of mistakes, poor reviews and frustration that I might have suffered had I made a dive into the world of professional driving directly. Her first-hand analysis of the experience of driving almost made me almost feel behind the wheel and apart from the tips which she drops during each journey on mastering the Uber app and driving, there are lessons on driver etiquette, dress styles suitable for the different seasons. I also learned a lot on how to read and interact with each passenger.

She is really objective in her evaluation of the Uber driving and the app and from her experience passengers and drivers would understand better how the Uber GPS works in specifying passenger location and passenger area. She provides her Uber account at the end of the book so the authenticity of the experiences is not in doubt. This book is an easy for anyone and I have since gone to get my own copy of the book from Amazon.

New Release:Love and Compassion Is My Religion: A Beginner’s Book Into Spirituality

image-2

Love and Compassion Is My Religion by Jane Zarse

NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON AND OTHER FINE BOOKSELLERS

Title: Love and Compassion Is My Religion: A Beginner’s Book Into Spirituality

Author: Jane Zarse

Genre: Non-Fiction/Spirituality

Format: Paperback and eBook

Publisher: Self/CreateSpace

Publication Date: February 11, 2016

Synopsis:

Jane Zarse was rich and privileged. From prep school to Boston University to a prime spot at the Chicago’s Options Exchange trading, she’d found the recipe for success.

But wrapped up in the excess of alcoholism, she felt nothing.

Zarse shares the most personal details of her descent into alcoholism and her eventual crawl back in ‘Love and Compassion is My Religion’, an inspirational memoir dedicated to showing others how the power of God’s love can change you. Struggling through in an alcohol-induced daze, she lost it all – including her marriage, her mother, and even more, before she finally decided to seek help.

“I can tell you now – when I was young, I didn’t just think I had it all, I knew I did,” explains Zarse. “I carried that same success into my early adult years after graduating from University. I suppose I became complacent and fell into a culture of excess, because to say I crashed down and hit rock-bottom is an understatement.”

Continuing, “The worse thing is that, when you’re caught in addiction’s vicious circle, you just can’t see a way out. But when I found God, I quickly came to realize that there was an exit door, if I was willing to embrace His love and compassion. I wasn’t a heavily spiritual person before, but now credit it with the only thing that saved me.”

Zarse believes that her memoir will change the lives of millions of readers around the world.

“There is nobody that this book can’t influence. From those caught in their own addiction cycles to those exploring their spirituality for the first time, and even people with no spiritual leanings who just want to briefly experience life from another person’s point of view. God’s love knows no boundaries and, after reading my book, every reader will understand this boldly.”
