Book Description

Publication Date: October 6, 2012
Jackie Paulson wrote this book while she was in high school. This is because she was in love with a boy that lived in her hometown area of Illinois when she was sent away to a boarding school in high school. This book is a book of poems from her heart written thinking that life revolved around him. Her home life was not as loving as he and his family was. It was the glue that kept Jackie Paulson going when there was nowhere to turn. If you enjoyed your book please contact Jackie at jackiepaulson8@gmail.com.

Book Review: Wisdom Meets Passion by Dan Miller and Jared Angaza

© 2012 written by Jackie Paulson

Title Wisdom Meets Passion

Author Dan Miller and Jared Angaza

Genre Business & Economics & General

Year Published 2012 (48 Days LLC)

Introduction: This is a book about different generational approaches to work, money, and education.  The authors share their personal stories; they hope that you will take a fresh look at your principles and lifestyle and perhaps those of your children, your parents,  your neighbors, or the people living on the other side of the world.  They hope to inspire you to be more open to acceptance of people whose experiences may be different from your own.

Chapter 1: I just want to make a difference

I think you and I can agree that we all want to make a difference in the lives of others.  We want to create a life that adds value to those around us.  This is a passion I know I want for myself as well as those around me.  I was born in the 1960s and use to think as the author did that success is a stable job, great paycheck with benefits, a house and secured retirement plan.  Today, I just want to make a difference!  In my family, they all think that having the same job for 30+ years is honorable.  I guess I am the rebel and never did this.  I am actually looked down upon.  This is what motivates me to try anything and everything to show that one job is just not going to cut it in today’s markets.  What about you? If we look at celebrities we see that several went from doing a menial job to becoming famous.  For example Lucille Ball was fired from an ice cream shop for not remembering to add bananas to a banana split.  Tom Hanks started out as a popcorn and peanuts vendor at the Oakland coliseum in California.  The list goes on and on.  If they can do it why can’t you or I?

What are you doing right now to make the world a better, more peaceful and loving place?

What is the one job that sticks out in your journey of getting to where you are today?  What are some of the lessons you have learned that you wish to share with the world?

Remember when you have lost everything, God is up to something.  The blessings are right around the corner.  More can be gained by focusing on those talents and gifts you know

God has given you.  Focus on what you are moving to and not what you are moving away from.  Be authentically you and let God use you.  The bottom line is that we all can choose our attitude and change our negative beliefs and this is the start of a wonderful awareness that will bring the answers to your life’s passions.

Chapter 2: Where do I find Security?

This chapter tells us as soon as you line up where they expect you to be at a certain time in the morning; you have now given up your freedom.   As soon as you demand a guaranteed income, you have given up the open ended income possibilities. Since I love freedom and want to have more of it, I am seeking my own passions as we speak.  I might not understand why my sister has been at the same job for 30+ years and she may not understand why I change jobs like diapers but either way we do what is right in our own lives.  She makes a difference in the lives of others by being a computer programmer and an expert in Lunix.  I make a difference in the lives of others by doing more than one talent and my favorite is doing book reviews such as this one for the authors who provide the book and some for free.  My passion is reading and doing book reviews is a passion of mine as well.  The market is huge, authors need others to post reviews and I prove my value by doing them for free for two years.  Now I have authors contact me and offer to pay me.  Granted I had to do this two years for my expertise to get out into the world wide web.

It took time.  I believe anything that takes time will bring value in the long run.  If you wish to find your life’s passion this book by Dan Miller will help you open doors.

I enjoyed learning from Dan’s insights and wish to share it with all of you.  If you so desire to share your passion please hit like or comment below.  ‘

Thank you, Jackie Paulson © 2012.

 

 

 

Resurrecting the Street by Jeff Ingber

Book review written by Jackie Paulson © 2012

Overcoming the greatest operational crisis in History

As a tribute to the author and 9-1-1 I quote the opening of this book.

“Our people ran, out of the Trade Center without a pencil.  No trade records. No tickets.  The business that we did in the North Tower we backed up in the South Tower, and vice versa.  We didn’t know where to go the next morning.  Or even if there was a firm left.”

* Written by Ron Purpors, senior executive of Garban Securities LLC.

The author was in the building of the World Trade Center when it is hit by the attacks of 9/11.  His preface grabs your attention and then leads you through how that day affected the world.  It gives a timeline of the events of September 11, 2011. The book has 14 chapters that will jar you back to the reality of that fateful day.  I don’t know about you but this is one book that I will keep on my book shelves and use a reference and landmark history lesson book.  I love the map of New Your City in the front of the book and it just makes me realize that in 2012 how far our country has come since that day.  All of the notes and citations and references are well researched and it was my pleasure to get a free copy of this book for my honest review.  If you did not get this book as of yet, please know that it is a must have and a must read for all of us as a tribute to all of those on 9-11-11.

UPDATE and Free book:

The events of 9/11 presented the financial industry with the greatest operational crisis in its history. Every major market was closed.  A significant amount of critical infrastructure was destroyed. Key officials were killed; others could not be located. Massive amounts of critical data were lost, and there was a crushing inability to communicate, locate or verify information.

With the anniversary of 9/11 looming, Jeff Ingber has released a newly updated edition of his ground-breaking book RESURRECTING THE STREET.  This book has been hailed as a gripping and detailed analysis of how the financial industry recovered, which required the willpower, wisdom, and unprecedented cooperation among fierce competitors.

Perfect for history buffs, those memorializing the 9/11 anniversary, and those looking for a deeper understanding of operational crisis management.

RESURRECTING THE STREET will be free between September 7th  and

September 11th.

 

 

Quest for Peace by Amrik Binapal

Quest for Peace by Amrik Binapal

Book review written by Jackie Paulson © 2012 I give this book a five star rating.
QUOTE: “We are just running a race not knowing exactly what we need or what we can do without.”
This is a wonderful book of life at its best and worst in the stream of words of mere poetry. It is written from the heart of the author to chase away the pain and the sorrow once lived. It is in the depth of the words that reminds me of how precious life is and to live in the moment as time slips by. It is in the form of eloquent poetry which sets the story, one by one, fact by fact; thought by thought that captures the reader.
In reading this book I am reminded that life is about experiences and lessons that we can live and learn from and then share with others. We all have pain, joy, suffering, death and in making our way through life we can find the hidden value to share as the author did with many words of wisdom. I feel a genuine passion for author who is intelligent, witty and emotional.
I plan to keep this book of poems because it is worth devouring many times over. I might pass it along to my daughter. If I was blessed by this book, I know you will be too!

I received this book for free for my honest review.
