Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Within the framework of an increasingly troubled world, this manuscript presents a series of essays written over a twenty-year period offering some practical, non-partisan suggestions as to how our country, and other countries like it can pull together to improve the situations of our citizens, our nation, and our communities. The book suggests that the solutions to the problems we face do not fit neatly into any one political camp, but instead require innovation, system redesign, and fair mindedness on the part of both politicians and citizens. Informed world citizens are demanding far more objective analyses of our policies, our actions, and the values we employ in pursuing the policies we do. Should those of us in leadership fail to provide those valuable insights, the world is likely to deprive us of our leadership role. The title, From Riches to Rags at a Time of Prosperity, was purposely chosen. There is still time for us to modify our behavior. But, if we misread or ignore world events, we will be poorer as the time available for improvement is quite finite. The United States is currently the world's largest debtor by a substantial margin. Our prosperity is largely based on the rapid depletion of liquid fossil fuels which are likely to be virtually fully exhausted this century. Our education system is sub-par. Our retirement promises are vastly in excess of what we can afford. Our environment is eroding. Though most US citizens are comparatively prosperous at the moment, we are gradually transitioning to much less prosperous circumstances From Riches to Rags at a Time of Prosperity.The book is divided into eight major parts. The Introduction includes a brief history of some of the earlier writings in the field of management with particular emphasis on our responsibilities as managers. Part Two deals with the economy and what we may have to do to sustain prosperity for the world's citizens. Part Three includes some essays written in response to the euphoria of the stock markets. part Four deals with manufacturing and its role in an integrated society. Part Five discusses the role of business management in a wholesome society along with some suggestions and caveats for the practice of management. Part Six reviews the importance of education and the responsibilities of those of us who are educators. Part Seven deals with a few of the nation's pressing public policy questions. Part Eight closes with a question: Will real leadership emerge?

What if we turn the tables and read about an already "lucky" character who was practically born with a silver spoon in her mouth, looks down upon others who have less than her or who don't meet her standards, feels entitled to get what she desires from others, and gets away with countless bullying antics at school since her father knows what strings to pull to get her out of trouble? Meet Serendipity (a.k.a. Serene), who needs to be humbled in her world of entitlement to fill the endless void she is trying to fill. How will she turn from her vacant and selfish ways if she doesn't have God in her life?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : On August 25, 2016, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that from January 2013 through December 2015, there were 3.2 million workers displaced from jobs they had held for at least 3 years. Losing a job is distressing. Not being able to find a replacement job can be devastating and there is no comfort in knowing the number of people who share in your job loss position. The possibility of poverty becomes a “real” alternative and managing the transition is your only solution. This is a memoir. It is a true story that recalls the journey of Marlene Bertrand, a woman who once owned a small business, who once earned a six-figure income and lived the lifestyle of the American Dream. But, then in the year 2008 a new presidential regime was voted in. This new Commander-in-Chief charged in and changed the way of the world, making decisions without regard for the citizens who would be affected. These presidential decisions wrought havoc on the economy; consequently, these decisions destroyed the very lifestyle to which Marlene had become accustomed. After losing her job due to “Right-Sizing,” Marlene was unable to find gainful employment and rapidly went from living an upper-middle class lifestyle to living in poverty. It wasn’t easy, but Marlene is a positive thinker. When life gives her lemons, she makes lemonade. After making some adjustments in her mindset and behavior she is now living a simple life, sharing her struggles and solutions to help others transition to living a simple, yet sustainable lifestyle. Marlene not only talks about living with less income, she is living with less income. In “From Riches to Rags to Right-Sized Living,” Marlene shows you how to live with less money, yet still live a more abundant lifestyle.

Download PDF or read online Sunflower Book by Andrew Collins and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2011-08-23 with total page 126 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This collection of poetry is a reflection on life. I created some of these from the age of 10 up to my current age; 20. I am aware that my naivety to some issues may be reflected in the meaning of some of the poems, but it is this naivety which propelled me into mastering the art of poetry and understanding how a few words can change someone’s life. I hope that this book will leave you questioning something about your life; and from that question you will find the answer. Inspirations link to Shakespeare, Duffy, Byron & Keats. These literature legends to me captivate everything there is to the art of the English language; the pronunciation of words, the ambiguity to a sentence which can catapult any emotion at any time and finally the linguistically beautiful style to which you read them. Through manipulating my emotions and views of life from a young age I feel I have been able to pen poems which are relevant and hard hitting. I find that if your own work can move you to tears or laughter; then there is a gem which needs to be discovered. This book highlights issues which the media tip-toe around; child abuse, murder, reasons for war, social mobility, ethnicity, sexuality and rape. However; this book also looks at the highs of society, love, personal wealth, joy, success and acceptance to our own faults. I am grateful to this collection even though I created them as I feel deep down they created me. The messages in the book will allow you as the reader to become inevitably the writer; possibly wanting to indulge to the point you feel this is aimed at you. Many poems in this collection have totally different styles, meanings and impacts to the last. Although this may not be considered the most consistent of reads; I have purposely created an ecliptic collection which reflects the constant changes of life. This is a somewhat biography of the evolving world as I grew in it; I strongly feel this has never been done and as I read them, I can see how I have strengthened as an individual in society. ‘The Child’ & ’My Hero’ are two of the poems I created when I was 10 years of age; the first one has always been considered as a reflection of my life; however it is the opposite. Even at that age I was able to put myself into another’s situation and saw a poem being penned which I would always look back on to draw inspiration. ‘My Hero’ was dedicated to all those who have lost their life trying to create a better world; not necessarily in the war. This book is strong minded and hard-hitting. I am very certain of myself and this is dominant in the poetry. This strength creates what others may not feel comfortable reading but deep down know that these issues exist and will carry on existing unless real action is taken. A mixture of political and emotional subjects; and sometimes both inter-twined; this book is aimed towards anyone in the general public. However, the subjects may not be apparent to everyone as some are representative of my age and not of my surroundings. Overall; I hope that the reader gets the satisfaction reading my poetry as I did writing it. The magic of poetry I feel has faded greatly within education and possibly society. I feel that the national curriculum needs to establish a better way of understanding what hundreds years of poetry has given us to date. I believe in myself as a poet and as a person; but most importantly I believe in this book as a collection of great poetry which I know will leave you wanting to read more. Thank you for taking the time to read this descriptor and I hope you enjoy the book. Yours Andrew Collins.
