Career empowerment advocate Deborah Shane’s new book Career Transition - Make the Shift
So many people today have been forced into a career transition they didn't want or see coming and are unemployed, or dissatisfied with their current work life.
There is a 23 year job satisfaction low today according to Harvard Business School and Business News Daily reports 84% of Americans plan to look for a new job in 2011!
Deborah Shane made a deliberate, voluntary career transition in 2006 and says: "I want people to know that the career life they want is the life they can have, but it takes guts, hard work and vision. This book can take people through a process from where they are now in their career life to where they want to go ."
Karen McCall shares her complete story and the powerful tools, systems and processes she developed in her new book
McCall, founder of the Financial Recovery Institute, defines financial recovery as “a process that helps you develop a healthy relationship with money that is both healing and life changing.”
She describes her own traumatic issues related to large debt and waiting until near financial ruin and desperation to attempt recovery.
She clearly explains ways for individuals to relinquish debt by reevaluating their behavior with money and preparing a strategy for rebuilding finances.
Not all luxury customers are alike so a one-size-fits-all marketing strategy won't work, says Pam Danziger in her new book, Putting the Luxe Back in Luxury
Stevens, PA May, 2011 -- In Putting the Luxe Back in Luxury: How new consumer values are redefining the way we market luxury, Pam Danziger offers insights into the shopping and spending behavior of top-tier consumers.
"For luxury marketers, there are really only two income segments that really matter: the ultra-affluent segment with incomes of $250,000 and above and the HENRYs, those earning $100,000 to $249,999," Danziger explains. "While the typical ultra-affluent household spends three to four times more than a HENRY, the fact is there are ten HENRY households for every one ultra-affluent.
That makes the HENRY segment extremely important to luxury marketers, yet these are the customers who are holding back and not indulging in luxury like in the pre-recession period. Luxury marketers can't afford to walk away from the HENRY segment. Their challenge is to put the 'luxe' back in their marketing to these hestitant customers."
An inspiring account of one woman’s courage and conviction
Written by former Soviet-Korean political refugee who escaped from Leningrad to the US, White Pearl and I is the inspiring story of what one woman achieved with courage, hard work, and a little luck.
Svetlana Kim was just twenty-three years old when she left Leningrad, Russia, for New York City. During a chance encounter in a bread line, a former schoolmate offered her a plane ticket from the black market to America. With only a dollar in her pocket and no knowledge of the English language, Kim left her family and friends for a new life, just as her great-grandparents had left Korea for Russia nearly a century before.
Faced with seemingly insurmountable odds after her arrival in the United States, the intrepid young woman clung tightly to her memories of her Soviet-Korean grandmother Bya-ok (Korean for “White Pearl”). Inspired by White Pearl’s indomitable spirit in the face of tremendous adversity, Kim tirelessly pursued the American dream.
