RESTORE TRUST

by Werner Neff


Economic Solutions to Current Social and Political Issues in the U.S.

Poverty is a structural problem created by economic thinking errors and institutional poverty traps, revealed and discussed in detail in this book. Neff argues that America is a welfare state.

The working poor are a social problem created by politics. The low minimum wage does not support a most basic lifestyle and as a result, food stamps, free medical services and other social programs become necessary to cover the gap. Half of the Federal budget supports the poor and the elderly across the country. Americans, mostly the middle class, subsidize this insufficient minimum wage with their taxes and unknowingly and indirectly support the bottom line of companies that underpay their employees. Economic thinking errors are the source of our entitlement society.

Democratic principles are distorted. The current political system allows the wealthy and large corporations to covertly influence legislation and bend economic laws in their favor.

Too many Americans are blinded by dreams of success and vote against their real interests and values. This is the American voting paradox, institutionally supported by gerrymandering and voting restrictions that favor the libertarian ideology.

RESTORE TRUST is an invitation to take a fresh look at the current socio-economic reality. Neff discusses economic solutions to dysfunctional politics and offers a conclusive call to action to help Americans restore trust and defend their needs and core values. He offers opportunities to create a shift to strengthen our democracy.

The Badass Girl's Guide: Uncommon Strategies to Outwit Predators

by CJ Scarlet


The Badass Girl's Guide: Uncommon Strategies to Outwit Predators is the one book criminal predators don't want you to read! Filled with critical information about how to empower yourself to keep from becoming a crime statistic, this definitive, comprehensive guide contains facts and strategies not found in other personal security books.

This remarkable, edgy book reveals how predators select and groom their victims, and teaches women and girls how to "fail" the predator interview to avoid being targeted in the first place. It also provides clear instructions about how to use your personal bodily "weapons" to defend yourself in a confrontation, offering everything you need to know to stay safe, fight if you must, and navigate the criminal justice system if the worst happens.

This book leaves women and girls feeling more inspired, motivated, powerful, and confident about their ability to take care of themselves.

If you read just one book on personal safety and self-defense in your lifetime, The Badass Girl's Guide: Uncommon Strategies to Outwit Predators is the one for you!

The News is Alarming, But You Have More Power Than You Think!

If you watch the evening news, it can seem as if the world is being overrun by violence. And if you’re a woman or girl, you likely have already been victimized in some way or are vulnerable to criminal predators—at home, in the workplace and even in public areas.

Women and girls are generally raised to be nice to everyone. They’re taught to avoid being rude at all cost. To smile through awkward situations. To giggle when they feel uncomfortable rather than risk embarrassing someone who is just “playing” with them. To expect men to be their rescuers if they’re in danger.

How many times in your life have you ignored the blaring sirens from your intuition when someone was violating your boundaries? Or worried as the creepy guy from your dorm followed you to class? Or suffered through regular sexual harassment at work?

It’s a strange paradox—we spend so much of our lives being hyper-vigilant about potential danger, but become utterly helpless when we’re confronted with uncomfortable and even dangerous situations. We smile when someone pays us an inappropriate compliment at work. We roll our eyes when a man makes a crude joke or gesture. We stiffen but don’t necessarily move when someone brushes up against us.

Making “Nice” is Hurting You

Why? Why do we “make nice” when we’re treated with disrespect? Our instincts are correct, but we override them because our early training was so strong. Part of the reason is fear—that the situation will escalate if we object, that we’ll embarrass the other person or ourselves, or that the person we confront won’t like/love/employ us anymore. We’re also often clueless about how to respond. Then there’s the pervasive, personally-held belief that we can’t take care of ourselves, so we demure rather than react.

We feel helpless, which leads to a sense of hopelessness and powerlessness. Denial is also a huge factor; we deny what’s happening to us in favor of making excuses for the perpetrator: “He was just kidding.” “I’m just being overly sensitive.” “He didn’t mean it.” Or the ever popular, “Boys will be boys.” This unfortunate perspective lets predators off the hook when they behave badly.

It’s Time to Take Your Power Back!

If you’re tired of feeling afraid, of loathing and blaming yourself, of feeling too vulnerable, then take YOUR power back right now. Yes, right this very second! Recognize that you’re a powerful being and claim it!

It’s time for you to get indignant! It’s time to be as aggressive or rude as necessary to keep yourself safe and secure. It’s time to stop waiting for someone else to rescue you. Summon your inner badass and rescue yourself!

Legitimate Work From Home Opportunities

by Samir Jhaveri

 

“Is it really possible to work from home and create a decent income online?”

It most certainly is, and you're about to learn how you can do it, way better than others! The trend to move towards freelancing and the gig economy is growing stronger and stronger, each passing year. This is good news!

It doesn’t matter if you are new to the work anywhere concept, or you are a seasoned internet marketer. You will find tons of online resources and business ideas to boost your income for 2019 and beyond, in this book.

There are several legitimate resources for performing simple tasks, to earn a few dollars per hour (like typing, filling surveys, etc.) all the way to earning several hundred dollars per hour (like social media marketing) depending on your expertise and skill-sets.

You don’t even have to worry if you fall short of skills. There are verified learning resources included in the book, which you can check out and use to master your skills.

“But aren’t these resources easily available on the internet?”

The good news is, there are actually tons of resources available online to help you find work, which you can manage from home. The bad news is, not all of them are legitimate. Whether we like it or not, scams are there everywhere. Why take the risk of not getting paid for your work? It is possible to verify the authenticity of a website, but do you have the skill or the time?

Would you prefer to spend your time in searching for opportunities and resources, and then verifying their legitimacy? Or would you prefer to have someone else do the dirty work so that you can spend your precious time in productive work that actually fills up your bank account?

Time is considered the most important resource, because we all have the same 24 hours. Why waste it in research when you can get what you need on a silver platter?

If you’re not sure where to begin, there’s a chapter which helps you to determine your niche. This could be anything from web designing, creating mobile apps, freelance writing, domain flipping, offering search engine optimization, digital marketing services, etc.

It could even be hobbies like art and craft, painting, music or singing. The book shows you how to monetize hobbies most effectively. When combined with your passion, it also helps you to stay focused and motivated, for maximum returns on your investment of time and energy.

Also included in the book is a chapter which helps you determine your goals, so you can plan your schedule and keep a balance between work and recreation (or relaxation).

The book, however, does not include get rich quick schemes, because the author does not believe in them. You will certainly need to work, to earn. This book is also not meant for lazy folks or entertainment seekers. Such books are best found in the fiction category.

This book is specifically written for folks who are ready to learn, who are ready to take action, who are not afraid of criticism or failure, and who have some fire in their belly. If this is you, this book will certainly help you achieve your goals.

You can now work for yourself, from the comfort of your home, and at your time and convenience! If you’re already working for a boss, you can start your own online business as a side hustle. Once you make a decent chunk of money and you’re confident to continue on this path, you can submit your resignation and do it full time!

Are you ready to get out of the rat race and become debt free? Are you ready to claim your well deserved financial freedom which you have been only dreaming about? It’s time to take a leap of faith and give it a shot. There is little to lose and a lot to gain. The risk reward ratio is extremely favorable. Scroll up and hit the buy button, the book will be yours in minutes!

The Happy Mind: A Simple Guide to Living a Happier Life Starting Today

by Kevin Horsley et al

 

Discover The Power of a Happy Mind


From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Unlimited Memory comes a new book on finding happiness in life using the power of your mind.

Happiness is more than just a feeling—it’s a learned skill. When you master the habits of happiness, your life will be filled with more peace, purpose, and passion.

The search for happiness is fundamental for all humans, and the answers lie within the depths of your mind.

In The Happy Mind you’ll discover valuable insights for lasting happiness instead of being driven by short-term pleasure seeking.

You’ll find the answers to your most important questions:

  • What do you need to do to be truly happy?

  • How can you change the old habits, beliefs, and situations that make you unhappy?

These questions have led to many philosophical debates over thousands of years. The philosophers of Greece were famous for their quest to define the pillars of "the good life." Faith-based movements have painstakingly crafted dogmas and prescribed behaviors in pursuit of ultimate peace and joy. Academic studies have been concentrated on finding the answer to "the optimal life experience."

When you look at all the scientific research, religious teachings, and philosophical insights, you find one inescapable conclusion: you can learn to live a truly happy life, but you must come to understand one thing…

We All Experience Happiness Differently


What makes one person happy may make another miserable. There is no one key to happiness for everyone. Instead, the answers lie within you.

As Shakespeare wrote, “This above all, to thine own self be true.” When you find what makes you truly happy, you’ll have all the answers you need. This book will help you find your unique roadmap to happiness.

The aim of this book is not to push a specific method of achieving of happiness. Instead, you'll discover valuable insights that will allow you to create lasting happiness for yourself instead of being driven by short-term pleasure-seeking.

In this book you will learn:

  • How people search for happiness in all the wrong places, and how you can avoid these "happiness traps" that keep you stuck and unfulfilled

  • Why most people mistake pleasure for happiness, and how this simple mistake causes you to lose sight of what really matters to you

  • The nine common qualities that super happy people share (and how you can apply them to brighten up your life)

  • The key traits of unhappiness (and the most important behaviors you should avoid)

Easy changes you can make that will create more long-term happiness for you and your loved ones

Give Yourself the Gift of The Happy Mind


Change your life with The Happy Mind and custom-design your happiness. Don’t waste another day being unhappy. Jump into life with a happy mind!

Vegas and the Mob: Forty Years of Frenzy

by Al Moe


Las Vegas was the Mob’s greatest venture and most spectacular success, and through 40 years of frenzy, murder, deceit, scams, and skimming, the FBI listened on phone taps and did virtually nothing to stop the fun. This is the truth about the Mob's history of control of the casinos in Vegas like you’ve never heard it before, from start to finish. Las Vegas history has never been so fascinating!

"Vegas and the Mob" tells the story of how the Mob began in the 1920's, how Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky became partners, and how Las Vegas fell to the Mob after two of the nation’s most powerful crime family bosses went to prison in the 1930’s: Al Capone, and Lucky Luciano. Frank Nitti took over the Chicago Outfit, while Frank Costello ran things for the Luciano Family. Both men were influenced by their bosses from prison, and both sent enough gangsters into the streets to influence loan sharking, extortion, union control, and drug sales.

Bugsy Siegel worked for both groups, handling a string of murders and opening up gaming on the west coast, and that included Las Vegas, an oasis of sin in the middle of the desert – and it was legal. Most of it. The FBI watched as the Mob took control of casino after casino, killed off the competition, and stole enough money to bribe their way to respectability back home.

By the 1950’s, nearly every major crime family had a stake in a Las Vegas casino. Some did better than others. Casino owners watched over their profits while competing crime families eyed each other's success like jealous lovers. Murder often followed.

But that's not the end of the story! The FBI finally started cracking down on the Mob and casino skim in the 1960's, and even with car bombings, murder and arson, it was twenty more years before the government was able to say the Mob was out - in the 1980's. This book tells the whole story!

Expert motivator, career coach virtuoso, and self-empowerment guru Nancy Sherr, Personal & Professional Transition Expert shows you how to take the opportunity and challenge of change, that is so often unavoidable in your personal and professional landscape, and transform it to new levels while using that same energy to boost your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

In The Bravehearts Guide, Nancy Sherr, having stared down the dragons of Big Life Changes and reinventing herself professionally three times, has helped thousands reshape their mindset, while evolving into their best selves through navigating both personal and work-life transitions. Nancy firmly believes that every one of us can live to our fullest potential and create a life we love.

Focusing on four key concepts—Instincts, Courage, Resilience, and Gratitude—this is her life handbook that provides a blueprint for true empowerment as we navigate the chaos of epic change. Nancy offers advice, thoughtful and inspiring exercises for gaining clarity and achieving goals, and plenty of resources and motivation—all based on her own personal experiences, years of key research, observation, and field testing, sharing the art of staying centered, strong, and victorious through the turbulence of change. Most importantly, she shows you how to locate your greatest sense of purpose that will take you to the highest levels of performance and sustain you to weather life’s inevitable challenges.

The Bravehearts Guide is also Nancy's personal story—a chronicle of endurance that is as impressive as her lengthy list of rave reviews from her coaching clients and readers. Through the sudden loss of her mother at the age of six, she talks candidly about the strict but loving upbringing by her heroic father and how through that, she built the resiliency needed to ultimately transform and build a life and career she loves.

Nancy Sherr has dedicated her life to her two children, her two Hungarian Vizslas, and to living an active and adventurous lifestyle. She has wrapped her exuberant and optimistic spirit around her journey of self discovery which she graciously shares in her book to motivate others to make the most of their own Big Life Changes, and inspires her readers to achieve their ultimate well-being in all aspects of life and career.

The Bravehearts Guide is a prescriptive, candid review of Nancy’s evolution, offering fresh, unexpected career and life lessons, peppered with motivation, warmth and love, presenting them as an easy-to-follow journey map to help readers recognize their full potential and channel their passion into success. In essence, she directs the reader through the fires of change to emerge as a triumphant phoenix!

This gifted coach knows what it takes to thrive, not just survive in the modern day. Part confidante, part mentor, Nancy takes you by the hand and holds nothing back.
