Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T.Harv Eker is the book that I needed to read fourty years ago. Of course, I wouldn't have read it when I was twenty-five. I hope the revolution has arrived and everyone will want to read this book. It starts the process of becoming aware of how, when it comes to money and financial matters, we will automatically carry out the blueprint that is in our mind and discovering what that blueprint is and how we can change it to better serve us. This is on my "must read" list.

GoDaddy.Com - GoDaddy in my opinion is in a class of its own. It has
the least expensive domain name registration. It also has the best
hosting plans. For one price, at this time about $75, you can host

email addresses, and be able to add up to 250 seperate and distinct
website without and additional cost. You can't beat this with a stick!

any business, period! They are available 24/7 from Scottsdale, AZ

Book Yourself Solid: The Fastest, Easiest, and Most Reliable System for
Getting More Clients Than You Can Handle Even if You Hate Marketing and
Selling by Michael Port. This is my latest read.Michael is an expert
in showing people how to present themselves and use that
presentation to keep the client pipeline full and flowing. It is different
enough from the "Never Eat Alone" book, below, that I would
recommend both of them. To purchase the book, just click on the book title.

Little Red Book of Selling by Jeffrey Gitomer. I bought this
in impulse (a bad way to conserve money in a book store).
It turns out that it is one of the most useful sales books I
have read. It is a very easy read with short chapters. Packed
into those chapters, though, is vital information for sales
types. He assumes that you already know the steps to a sales.
His premise is that "People don't like to be sold, but they love
to buy," and they love to buy from people they know and like.
This book is about how to effectively reach potential buyers and
get them to buy without being sold. I'm sold on this book.
Never Eat Alone: And Other Secrets to Success, One Relationship
at a Time by Keith Ferrazzi. This book was sitting on the shelf
next to the Little Red Book of Selling. The jacket said that it
was a book on networking and because I was looking for
networking techniques and don't like eating alone, I impulsed
this one, too. I have been reading both these books together and
they are totally complementary. Ferrazzi's approach to
networking is about building extended networks long before you
need them. It is about how to become well connected with a
network of friends. It is definitely a "how to" book. The
difference with this one is that it is not the "how to work a
networking room" as so many of these are, rather it is how to
gather a network of friends and associates that assist each
How to Master the Art of Selling Anything CD by Tommy Hopkins.
He is one of the most successful salespersons, ever. I originally bought
this program after attending one of his live seminars in the
middle 1970s. It still ranks #1 on my list of sales training
presentations. Twelve compact discs teach you the complete sales
process from prospecting and original contact through to closing
and getting referrals.
Real Boys Workbook by William Pollack. William Pollack, Ph.D. is
the director of The Center for Men at McClean Hospital, a major
teaching facility of Harvard Medical School The Center is
dedicated to enhancing knowledge of men's life experiences,
physical and mental health issues. He is THE expert on how reach
and counsel boys. This workbook is the "how to" version of his
original, monumental book,"Real Boys : Rescuing Our Sons from
the Myths of Boyhood " which is a bit too academic and tedious
for most people who are really looking for ways of dealing with
their kids. The workbook is the answer to their need. This is
must reading for anyone interested in working with boys.
Parent As Coach by Diana Haskins. This is a quick read and a
great primer for raising your teenagers. The subtitle of the book
is: Helping your teen build a life of confidence, courage and
compassion. I believe she provides with this book a great guide
to accomplish that in a manner that your teen might just actually
feel O. K. about. I am using this book in my coaching of parents
of teens. It is a "must read."
The Sourcebook of Magic: A Comprehensive Guide to the Technology of NLP,
by L. Michael Hall, Ph.D.& Barbara P. Belnap, Ph.D. Although this book is
intended as a compendium of NLP recipes for the NLP Practitioner, I feel that
the first couple of chapters are a pretty good introduction to Neuro-Linguistic
Programming for even the new comer. I highly recommend this book for those
looking for a one source comprehensive NLP reference.
Influencing With Integrity by Genie Laborde, Ph.D. I have been recommending
this book since it was first published. It is primarily intended as an introductory
text for non-therapist business people to learn how to utilize this state of the art
communication technology for business and personal affairs.
Loving What Is, by Byron Katie This has become one of my favorite books.
Katie has discovered a set of four questions that when asked about a particular
belief that one hold about someone else or themselves, will give the person the
ability to sort fact from fiction and move on to a better self. Simple but quite
profound. She explores using "The Work" as she calls the questions in many
areas of a person's life and illustrates the process with transcripts of her work
