Description : Going to college can be exciting, anxiety inducing, and expensive! You want your child to get the most out of their college experience--what advice do you give? Thriving at College by Alex Chediak is the perfect gift for a college student or a soon-to-be college student. Filled with wisdom and practical advice from a seasoned college professor and student mentor, Thriving at College covers the ten most common mistakes that college students make--and how to avoid them! Alex leaves no stone unturned--he discusses everything from choosing a major and discerning one's vocation to balancing academics and fun, from cultivating relationships with peers and professors to helping students figure out what to do with their summers. Most importantly, this book will help students not only keep their faith but build a vibrant faith and become the person God created them to be.

In a nutshell, Thriving at College is about how college students can launch into responsible, fruitful adulthood for the glory of God against the backdrop of a young adult culture that often values perpetual adolescence and the avoidance of responsibility. It explores topics such as embracing responsibility, loving God with all your mind, growing in character and maturity, striving for academic excellence, balancing work and recreation, finding your calling, establishing godly friendships, handling the transition from high school to college, time management, financial discipline, and honoring parents while pursuing functional/economic independence.

Description : Make work simple by using the tools and tactics that are right for you

Your time is under attack. You just can’t get enough done. You find yourself wondering where the hours go. You’ve tried every time-management system you can get your hands on—and they’ve only succeeded in making your work more complicated.

Sound familiar?

If you sometimes feel you spend more time managing your productivity than doing actual work, it’s time for a change. In Work Simply, renowned productivity expert Carson Tate offers a step-by-step guide to making work simple again by using the style that works best for you.

Tate has helped thousands of men and women better manage their time and become more productive. Her success owes partly to the realization that most of us fit into one of four distinct productivity styles: Arrangers, who think about their projects in terms of the people involved; Prioritizers, who are the definition of “goal-oriented”; Visualizers, who possess a unique ability to comprehend the big picture; and Planners, who live for the details.

In this book, you’ll learn

  • How to identify your own productivity style as well as the styles of those around you—bosses, coworkers, staff, and family.
  • How to select your “tools of the trade” to maximize your effectiveness, from the style of pen you use to the way you decorate your office.
  • When face-to-face conversations are more effective than e-mails—and vice versa.
  • What it takes to lead the perfect meeting.
  • Why a messy desk is right for some, but a disaster for others—and how to tell.

After reading Work Simply, you’ll come away with a productivity system that truly and fundamentally fits you—and you’ll never feel overwhelmed again.

Description : Going from the first thought to first sale in your first or next new business.

Based on solid research and John Wren's experience as entrepreneur and consultant. Businesses just don't start the way the Small Business Administration says they should start.

John Wren calls himself a recovering MBA because "much of what I learned in graduate business school is deadly for the person who is going from first thought to first sale."

Wren has discovered that market research and careful strategic planning just are NOT the way successful business start. His findings have been confirmed by the research of Dr. Amar Bhide www.bhide.net.

"If market research and formal planning worked as well as the SBA thinks they do, we'd have a planned economy, not a market economy," says Wren.

Wren has started several businesses himself and has worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs in his consulting work and the Denver IDEA Cafe, a startup workshop that meets weekly, and Franklin Circle business peer advisory groups.

John Wren says:

Since 1979, I help people start and grow their business, and I help individuals find their next great job in the direction of their dream.

Denver IDEA Cafe http://meetup.com/Denver-IDEA-Cafe the 2nd & 4th Fridays each month, free and open to everyone starting a new career, new project or campaign and I organize and facilitate Franklin Circle business peer advisory groups. http://www.JohnWren.com
