"No-nonsense advice on the skills needed to succeed in business doesn’t shy away from the hard truths of growing as an entrepreneur.
"The second in a series of business books written and published by a self-made millionaire, this guide is particularly useful for those interested in starting a business. When the author of a business book writes that he “started 34 businesses in 15 different industries from scratch,” the book takes on a certain credibility. When the author also says he went “from a broke, new immigrant cashier who couldn’t speak English to becoming a multi-millionaire entrepreneur,” any reader with a desire to start and run a successful business cannot help but be intrigued.
"Thankfully, Ehab Atalla’s book, The Skills of Business, is more than boasting—it is a well-written, substantive guide to business, enhanced with the street-smart wisdom only a self-made businessperson could provide.
"The Skills of Business is authoritative and informative. It should prove especially useful to the budding entrepreneur."
November 10, 2013
The San Francisco Book Review
"The Skills of Business equally passes the clarity and generality tests. Both the diagrams and Appendices provided (e.g. Global Trade, Supply and Demand Curves) would be understandable by anyone with say a 3.0 GPA on their high school diploma. No MBA required—and isn’t that a relief?
"The Skills of Business will make a fine addition to your personal shelf."
Whether you are just starting out or an experienced business person, the skills you will learn in this book will take you to the next level of your career. You will learn how to be a general business person--how to take advantage of any opportunity in any industry.

An intelligent read, When The Siren Calls is a delicious expose of how the other half live: selfishly, sinfully and shamelessly.
“When The Siren Calls is a sexy, seductive book. There is love, betrayal, infidelity and unexpected twists. There is so much going on, it's like watching a really good movie. It’s brilliant.” - "Books and Reviews“
"The thinking woman's Fifty Shades" - "Female First."
"A very well-conceived story with interesting characters and a tantalizing pace. I couldn’t ask for more than that.” – Jennifer Custer, Literary Agent, A.M. Heath
“ A pacy, racy, romance novel that simultaneously feels like a critique of a particular social scene. The prose is very strong technically, and the characters are comprehensive and believable. Isobel is an effective and sympathetic protagonist, and her story is compelling.” – Tom Fletcher, author, ‘The Leaping’
““[The sex scenes in When the Siren Calls] are vital, pacy, and never gross or uncomfortable – as the annual Bad Sex Awards shows, this is rare in fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed the way the strands come together as the novel pushes towards climax." – Matthew Branton, author, ’The Love Parade’.
“A sexually-unfulfilled wife in a tricky situation and a handsome stranger coming to her rescue. Give me good old escapism any time.-” Alana Woods, author, ‘Imbroglio’.
“I loved this book! I am recommending it to all my friends who love smart, sensual stories with twists that keep you guessing.” – 'Erin Potter, Shamrock Editing.'
“This story grabs you by the throat from the start. The opening scene is every woman’s nightmare.” -'Kathleen Patel, Amazon Books.'
“Wow- Lady Chatterley meets Christian Grey ! It’s exciting to find a new writer who tells life like it is, but with a delectable twist of romance, sex and humour.” - Stephanie J Hale, author, ‘Millionaire Women, Millionaire You.’
“Witty, often deliciously self-conscious and smattered with the best sort of irony, When the Siren Calls is both seductive and funny. If ‘humourotica’ is a genre then Tom Barry is its king; if it does not yet exist then he is its creator.” – 'Book Connoisseur.'

by Jill Hart (Goodreads Author)
"Being a former teacher, turned stay-at-home-mom, I can vouch for how difficult it is to carve out time-- ANY time-- for me to do anything that is solely for me to benefit from...devotions included. As a teacher, I had teeny-tiny breaks throughout the day that didn't allow much to get accomplished, but still, it was a far cry from what I do now, which is parenting and teaching my 2 small children. It was easier for me to nab some time for devotions when I was teaching...I could listen to a devotional on my 30 min. commute to and/or from work. I could read during my brief lunch break. There truly are no breaks in the day now, but I can carve out the very few minutes it takes to read about a page per week from this devotional, and pair it with my Scripture reading.
The author, Jill Hart, CLEARLY understands what those of who work at home are up against when it comes to finding time to be still and listen to that still, small voice. After having our second baby in July 2013, I feel like I'm finally finding a way to get back into the swing of things, and that includes time for devotions. While I wish I could spend more time on devotions each day, it's not realistic for me right now, but this devotional provides a realistic approach for the stage of life that I am currently experiencing.
I love how she keeps each devotional message short, sweet, and to the point. She is also so easy to relate to; when I read parts where she is speaking from her own experience, it's as though she tore a page out of the book of my own life. This causes me to have a great trust for her writing, and also causes me to open up more to the wisdom she has to offer. Consider giving this devotional a try, especially if you're tight on time and need to keep it real!" - Janet Kline (review from Amazon) [close]
by Paul N. Liburd (Goodreads Author)
‘If Sir Richard Branson (the owner of the multi-million pound Virgin empire) lost all of his money, moved into the house next door and took an ordinary day job just to survive, I bet you that within one year, he would be a millionaire again.’
I thought about it for a while and considered all of the world’s millionaires and how many of them had hit rock bottom (in some cases more than once) in their working lives, and yet had managed to bounce back to become even richer than they had been before. If wealth were all about how much money one had to start with and if rich people were rich simply because they had a better financial starting point, then these failed business-men should never have recovered so quickly from their financial setbacks. But the fact is, they did recover and bounce back. How did they do it?
When I finally discovered the answer to this question, my financial prospects immediately began to improve.
This little book ‘The Rich the Poor and the Foolish’ contains the answer to the above question, along with the practical steps that I am now following, as I climb steadily from debt towards financial freedom. You will also discover how to buy what you need without actually spending your own money. Special qualifications or expert knowledge is not required and you won’t even need a salary increase. Armed with nothing but the information contained in this book, you can start today with your current income and take your first steps towards financial freedom. This book will soon become your trusted mentor and the best gift that you could ever give to your friends and family.

by Charles Murray
As bestselling author and social historian Charles Murray explains, at senior levels of an organization there are curmudgeons everywhere, judging your every move. Yet it is their good opinion you need to win if you hope to get ahead.
Among the curmudgeon’s day-to-day tips for the workplace:
• Excise the word “like” from your spoken English
• Don’t suck up
• Stop “reaching out” and “sharing”
• Rid yourself of piercings, tattoos, and weird hair colors
• Make strong language count
His larger career advice includes:
• What to do if you have a bad boss
• Coming to grips with the difference between being nice and being good
• How to write when you don’t know what to say
• Being judgmental (it’s good, and you don’t have a choice anyway)
And on the great topics of life, the curmudgeon urges us to leave home no matter what, get real jobs (not internships), put ourselves in scary situations, and watch Groundhog Day repeatedly (he’ll explain).
Witty, wise, and pulling no punches, The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Getting Ahead is an indispensable sourcebook for living an adult life. [close]

by Jeremy Rifkin
Rifkin uncovers a paradox at the heart of capitalism that has propelled it to greatness but is now taking it to its death—the inherent entrepreneurial dynamism of competitive markets that drives productivity up and marginal costs down, enabling businesses to reduce the price of their goods and services in order to win over consumers and market share. (Marginal cost is the cost of producing additional units of a good or service, if fixed costs are not counted.) While economists have always welcomed a reduction in marginal cost, they never anticipated the possibility of a technological revolution that might bring marginal costs to near zero, making goods and services priceless, nearly free, and abundant, and no longer subject to market forces.
Now, a formidable new technology infrastructure—the Internet of things (IoT)—is emerging with the potential of pushing large segments of economic life to near zero marginal cost in the years ahead. Rifkin describes how the Communication Internet is converging with a nascent Energy Internet and Logistics Internet to create a new technology platform that connects everything and everyone. Billions of sensors are being attached to natural resources, production lines, the electricity grid, logistics networks, recycling flows, and implanted in homes, offices, stores, vehicles, and even human beings, feeding Big Data into an IoT global neural network. Prosumers can connect to the network and use Big Data, analytics, and algorithms to accelerate efficiency, dramatically increase productivity, and lower the marginal cost of producing and sharing a wide range of products and services to near zero, just like they now do with information goods.
The plummeting of marginal costs is spawning a hybrid economy—part capitalist market and part Collaborative Commons—with far reaching implications for society, according to Rifkin. Hundreds of millions of people are already transferring parts of their economic lives to the global Collaborative Commons. Prosumers are plugging into the fledgling IoT and making and sharing their own information, entertainment, green energy, and 3D-printed products at near zero marginal cost. They are also sharing cars, homes, clothes and other items via social media sites, rentals, redistribution clubs, and cooperatives at low or near zero marginal cost. Students are enrolling in free massive open online courses (MOOCs) that operate at near zero marginal cost. Social entrepreneurs are even bypassing the banking establishment and using crowdfunding to finance startup businesses as well as creating alternative currencies in the fledgling sharing economy. In this new world, social capital is as important as financial capital, access trumps ownership, sustainability supersedes consumerism, cooperation ousts competition, and “exchange value” in the capitalist marketplace is increasingly replaced by “sharable value” on the Collaborative Commons.
Rifkin concludes that capitalism will remain with us, albeit in an increasingly streamlined role, primarily as an aggregator of network services and solutions, allowing it to flourish as a powerful niche player in the coming era. We are, however, says Rifkin, entering a world beyond markets where we are learning how to live together in an increasingly interdependent global Collaborative Commons. [close]

That’s right! Most successful, growth-hungry companies begin to miss their projections or worse, not because demand is low or conditions are difficult, but simply because they don’t know how to predict, nurture, or even maintain their own growth and success. At each stage of growth, natural problems are glossed over in the scramble to expand, making the organization vulnerable to chaos, no matter how strong or expert its leaders. Most leaders feel isolated, pressured to build on earlier success and maintain total control – the perfect recipe for the 12 most common and critical mistakes to show up and slow or kill growth.
Kirk Dando, leadership and growth expert, CEO of Dando Advisors, calls these roadblocks the “12 Warning Signs of Success,” and has helped leaders across industries predict, prepare, and avoid them at every stage of growth. Predictive Leadership is rich with real-world stories, prescriptive advice on how to scale your business and limit the drama so you can unlock the growth and success you desire.
Maybe you had the right idea but hired the wrong person. Maybe you’re running into a leadership bottleneck, having trouble getting your team aligned, unknowingly incentivizing failure, or losing sight of your core values. Dando, known in leadership circles as the “Company Whisperer,” has encountered every one of these obstacles himself, as a C-level executive in a high-growth billion-dollar business. He knows firsthand that these moments of truth determine whether you can lead your company to become a strong, mature, and financially sustainable organization, or drift toward an uncertain future.

To answer these questions you need to look beyond share price. How much equity do shareholders own today? How much is the company earning? What are their profit margins? What variables influence their costs? How much equity is tangible? What’s the cash flow? Is that dividend sustainable? What’s the value for shareholders in the future?
Few investors take the time to understand what they are buying or selling; to ask the important questions. Failing to look beyond share price, they find themselves at the mercy of the short term market, ready to sell almost immediately after they buy.
Principles of Investing delivers a clear and rational introduction to investing in the stock market, with an emphasis on financial comprehension and the importance of understanding risk. This approach highlights the difference between price and value, and familiarizes the reader with the basic framework to begin making investment decisions. Recommended as a supplement to a basic course in financial analysis, but suitable as a primer or reference for the novice to intermediate investor, this book was written to provide transparency into the world of stocks and investing.
What is the stock market, and why is it important?
Why are shares issued, and what do they really represent?
What's the difference between share price and share value?
How do you read the three principle financial statements, and what should you look for?
What is tangible book value, and what does it mean to you?
What’s the difference between income and cash flow?
What’s the difference between a mutual fund and an ETF?
What are the different types of buy and sell orders, and which ones should you use? [close]

‘At 35, I was a struggling travel writer with five guides in print but not enough money to pay the rent. Then I met the Colonel in India. ‘You should try business, Frank!’ said the Colonel. ‘It would be a most spiritual experience!’ Spiritual or not, he was right. Five years on, I was the foremost wholesaler of hippy-Hindi glad rags in the UK. But at what cost? Along the way, I lost my hair, my house, my girlfriend, my Buddhist principles, and very nearly my sanity…’ Frank Kusy
'Dodgy' Frank Kusy, born into poverty from immigrant parents, learns to live on his wits––first as an unwitting money collector for Ronnie Kray, later as a Buddhist trader in London’s St Martin’s-in-the-Fields market. Then he meets up with thuggish ‘Spud’ who is so good at scaring people, notably the Petrovs, two encroaching Russian gangsters, that he hires him on the spot as his business partner.
It’s a deal with the Devil. Spud is a loose cannon, liable to blow up at any moment. The two travel to India to become the largest wholesalers of hippy-Hindi glad rags in the UK, and to fulfill their dream of becoming rupee millionaires.
Along the way, they pick up a motley crew of kooky characters––Ram, a lovable, crutch-bound Rajasthani, George, an irascible American, Nick and Anna, a quirky Canadian couple, Susie, a Dagenham girl gone ‘native’, and Rose, the secret love of Ram’s life. These become the ‘Pushkar Posse’, a group of oddball traveller-entrepreneurs who meet once a year to have fun and make money in equal measure.
Join Frank on this wild rite of passage through India.
