Author: Michael Gates Gill
Michael Gill's lemons-to-lemonade memoir chronicled his transformative years working at Starbucks after losing his high-powered job, his marriage, and his health (he developed a brain tumor). In response to overwhelming requests from readers who wanted to know how they, too, could weather downturns, he has distilled his lessons into fifteen meaningful lessons, including: ·Leap...With Faith: Sometimes it pays to leap without looking and say yes without thinking (Gill accepted the Starbucks job immediately, on a whim). ·Let Yourself...Be Helped: Pride is even more paralyzing than fear. ·Look...with Respect at Every Individual You See: Gill was raised to avoid eye contact with those who were different, cloistered in a privileged world. Now he realizes the potential in all who cross his daily path. ·Lose...Your Watch (and Cell Phone and PDA!): Our obsession with productivity produces madness, not gladness. Offering living proof that extraordinary happiness is found in ordinary moments, How to Save Your Own Life provides empowering words and hope for anyone facing a reversal of fortune. True fortune, Gill discovered, lies not in fate but in discovering the innate capacity we all possess to rescue ourselves. Watch a Video

Liberated by the Profound Theologian,Germain Grisez
Author: JOSEPH H. CASEY, S.J.
Publisher: Author House
After seriously want to be liberated from simply accepting moral directives from family, from media, from “one’s group,” from one’s culture –and willing to labor to understand what makes any action morally good or bad., Grisez , a lay moral theologian, will equip you to guide your own journey before and to God. Liberated, you will feel you are creating your own self, that your life is in your hands. Grisez is a sound, conservative Catholic, but creatively independent. Appealing only to reason at first, hence accessible to all people, he focuses on free choice and human fulfillment. A clear criterion of good (morally) and bad (morally) choices is provided. Aware we act immorally because of non-integrated feelings, he articulates ways to avoid doing so. These ways he then transforms for the Christian to follow the way of the Lord Jesus, love becoming the criterion of morally good choices–allowing God, who is love, to co-operate in our choices as you create yourself as a loving self.

Need two jobs, maybe the wife too, just to enjoy life as your parents did? Misled by rosy unemployment and financial market strength figures, today’s average American faces an abyss of rising intertwined financial difficulties, aware of some, but likely unaware of most. This abyss threatens their ability to earn a comfortable living in the future. Most seem not to comprehend the depth of what is happening to the traditional idea of working and earning a living. First and foremost, this book seeks to create an awareness of these issues, since without awareness a person can’t prepare for what they face. The book goes on to outline those skills valuable to successful entrepreneurs and why this skill set is important to anyone facing career uncertainty. Finally, because nearly 40% of the US workforce is now engaged in some form of part- or full- time independent work, and their numbers are growing, the very basic ABCs of earning money entrepreneurially are discussed.
