Do you have unfulfilled dreams? Would you love a different career? Is there a hobby or interest you're passionate about but have yet to pursue? Do you have a goal you want to achieve but have no idea where to start? So did Julie Moriva. She launched into action without much thought or planning on her journey to becoming a professional songwriter. But one serendipitous act turned out to be the key to allowing the author to look back and connect the dots allowing her to see the steps and the process that propelled her towards realizing her dream. Julie Moriva shares her story based on her situation - a wife, mother and educator living in a tiny northern Wisconsin town pursuing a career as a songwriter. The beauty of this process is it can be applied to whatever it is one desires to achieve. Moriva's path culminates when she signs a publishing deal with one of the most successful record labels in the music industry and with her song being performed on the finale of NBC's The Voice. Whatever your aspirations there is wisdom in Moriva's advice to those contemplating turning a dream into reality, "There are no size limits on dreams and success in contingent only on our ability to Dream Big...Why Not?!"

Joan Kuhl helps women create a clear vision of what their career path deserves to be and make a convincing business case for equality to their managers and senior leadership. You'll learn strategies for overcoming sexist cultural attitudes about gender and leadership, as well as for dealing with self-limiting behaviors like Imposter's Syndrome (the feeling that you're never good enough despite a track record of success) and the Myth of Meritocracy (the idea that just doing good work is the only way to advance). Because relationships are absolutely crucial, Kuhl describes how to build support networks before you even need them and explains how to get actionable feedback that will help you get to the next level—the kind women rarely are afforded. Case studies, practical exercises, and inspiring stories from Kuhl's work with clients at companies such as Eli Lilly and Company, Goldman Sachs, U.S. Soccer, BlackRock, South Carolina Asphalt Pavement Association and top business schools make this a truly comprehensive guide. It's an indispensable resource for women seeking to build the confidence and conviction to secure the seat at the table they've earned and create a welcoming workplace for everyone.

Secretly, if not overtly, almost everyone in America desires to become rich: to make it big, to enjoy the fruits of the most successful life imaginable. But unfortunately, most of us don't have a clue how to reach these all too elusive goals. Quite simply, there's no definitive road map for getting there, no proven plan, and certainly very little access to those who have become "the richest man in town." But now W. Randall Jones, the founder of Worth magazine, is about to change all that. He's traveled to one hundred different towns and cities across the country and interviewed the wealthiest resident in each. No, these are not those folks who inherited their wealth, or happen to be a CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Rather, these are the self-made types who, through hard work and ingenuity, found their own individual paths to financial success. Remarkably, during his research, Jones found that these successful people were not so different from one another. They all shared many of the same traits and followed what the author calls the Twelve Commandments of Wealth: stay hungry (even when you're successful) . . . you really do learn more from failing than you may think . . . absolutely be your own boss, the sooner the better . . . understand that selling is the key to success . . . where you live doesn't matter . . . never retire, and other, more surprising revelations. Practical, unique, and inspiring, this book lets you peek inside the living rooms of dozens of America's most successful people-and shows how you, too, can become THE RICHEST MAN IN TOWN.

To anyone else this little plot of land probably looks like a dull Kansas hillside: A grass covered hill, a mossy pond, a grove of tangled, old Osage Orange trees, and a small meadow full of weeds. But the land called to me like an old friend with a delectable secret to share. I was meant to live here even if it was a totally illogical purchase Thus begins a lyrical journey to a neglected piece of land in northeastern Kansas. A Still Place is filled with hauntingly poetic descriptions of the plants and creatures inhabiting one hill that changed author Nancy Lankston's life. Lankston observes and explores the land, sharing how it shifts and changes with each passing season. She describes her own growing sense of joy at living with wildflowers and weeds instead of the perfect garden and manicured lawn. Lankston shares her sense of wonder at the sight of butterflies making trees dance and stars stretching across the night sky, blanketing the hill in dark mystery. She revels in her son's adventures as "king" of one little hill. Lankston's essays touch that still place in us all that responds to the magic of the natural world.

Miss Jessie's is a memoir and business guide rich with inspirational life lessons and unique business advice from Miko Branch, the Chief Executive Officer of the dynamic Miss Jessie’s — the company that revolutionized the hair care industry. When Miko and her sister, Titi, were children, their grandmother, Miss Jessie, taught them independence and showed them the value of being “do it yourself” women, all while whipping up homemade hair concoctions at her kitchen table. As co-founders of Miss Jessie's, Miko reveals how she and Titi applied those lessons to create a successful business from scratch. A family memoir with a wealth of practical business advice and handy hair tips, told in Miko's funny and relatable voice, Miss Jessie’s is her remarkable story — from her childhood learning independence as a latchkey kid in Jamaica, Queens, to building a highly regarded company with her sister in their shared home salon in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Miko reflects on her hard-won insights working for her autocratic, iron-fisted father, and how the self-sufficiency she learned in childhood helped her blossom as a single mother with bills to pay, a child to raise, and a dream to pursue. She speaks honestly of her mistakes and successes, and of her role as an industry leader, negotiating multi-million dollar deals while at the same time restoring the self-esteem of natural and curly haired women. Charming and enlightening, chock full of entertaining stories and invaluable instruction that can be applied to any business, and illustrated with 16 pages of photos, Miss Jessie's confirms that with effort the American Dream is possible.
