Richelle Mead
“You are an exceptional, talented, and brilliant young woman. Do not ever let anyone make you feel like you’re less. Do not ever let anyone make you feel invisible. Do not let anyone—not even a teacher who constantly sends you for coffee—push you around.”
Richelle Mead, Bloodlines

Sarah Dessen

Richelle Mead
“With a few swift steps, Adrian stood in front of me again. The wall was only a couple inches behind me, and I had nowhere to go. He made no threatening moves, but he did clasp my hands and hold them to his chest while leaning down to me.
“No, you will listen. For once, you’re going to hear something that doesn’t fit into your neat, compartmentalized world of order and logic and reason. Because this isn’t reasonable. If you’re terrified, believe me—this scares the hell out of me, too. You asked about Rose? I tried to be a better person for her—but it was to impress her, to get her to want me. But when I’m around you, I want to be better because… well, because it feels right. Because I want to. You make me want to become something greater than myself. I want to excel. You inspire me in every act, every word, every glance. I look at you, and you’re like… like light made into flesh. I said it on Halloween and meant every word: you are the most beautiful creature I have ever seen walking this earth. And you don’t even know it. You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine.”
Richelle Mead, The Golden Lily

Richelle Mead
“This wasn’t the first time I’d been pulled out of bed for a crucial mission. It was, however, the first time I’d been subjected to such a personal line of questioning.

“Are you a virgin?”
Richelle Mead, The Indigo Spell

Richelle Mead
“ʺWhere is it?ʺ I asked.
ʺLexington, Kentucky.ʺ
ʺOh for Godʹs sake,ʺ I moaned. ʺWhy not the Bahamas? Or the Corn Palace?ʺ
Dimitri tried to hide a smile. It might have been at my expense, but if Iʹd lightened his mood, I was grateful. ʺIf we leave right now, we can reach him before morning.ʺ
I glanced around. ʺTough choice. Leave all this for electricity and plumbing?ʺ
Now Sydney grinned.
ʺAnd no more marriage proposals.ʺ
ʺAnd weʹll probably have to fight Strigoi,ʺ added Dimitri.
I jumped to my feet. ʺHow soon can we go?ʺ”
Richelle Mead, Last Sacrifice

V.E. Schwab
“Serena hadn't told Sydney to go home. She hadn't told her to run away. She told her to go somewhere safe. And over the course of the last week, safe had ceased to be a place for Sydney, and had become a person.

Specifically, safe had become Victor.”
V.E. Schwab, Vicious

Richelle Mead
“I sighed and stared off without any particular focus. "I miss him so much."
"I'm sorry," she said.
"Will it ever get better?"
The question seemed to catch her by surprise. "I...I don't know.”
Richelle Mead, Blood Promise

Richelle Mead
“Sydney sighed and stood up, smoothing her rumpled clothes with dismay. 'I need a coffee shop or something.'
'I think I saw one in a cave down the road,' I said.
That almost got a smile from her.”
Richelle Mead, Last Sacrifice

Richelle Mead
“Well, " she replied dryly, "there's no getting around that. And it's not me being nice. It's not even my choice. It's an order from my superiors. "
"It still sounds like a pain in the ass for you. Why don't you just tell me where it is and blow them off? "
"You obviously don't know the people I work for. "
"Don't need to. I ignore authority all the time. It's not hard once you get used to it.”
Richelle Mead, Blood Promise

Victoria Schwab
“―Self-righteousness,- Victor said. But when Sydney looked confused, he added, ―He heals. It‘s a reflexive ability. In his eyes, I think that makes it somehow pure. Divine. He can‘t technically use his power to hurt others.
―No,- said Sydney, ―he uses guns for that.
Victor chuckled.”
Victoria Schwab, Vicious

Richelle Mead
“And the whole time, people kept refilling my cup. Determined not to look like an idiot again, I kept drinking until I could finally take the vodka down without coughing or spitting. I stood, finding it much harder to do than I'd expected. The world wobbled, and my stomach wasn't very happy with me. Someone caught a hold of my arm and steadied me.
"Easy," said Sydney. "Don't push it." Slowly, carefully, she led me toward the house.
"God," I moaned. "Do they use that stuff as rocket fuel?"
"No one made you keep drinking it."
"Hey, don't get preachy. Besides, I had to be polite."
"Sure," she said.”
Richelle Mead, Blood Promise

“The boat entered the Harbour. The wide, bright city crowded up against the water, but drew back from its very edge; Ruth saw green parklands full of trees with white flocks of parrots burning out of them. The parrots surprised Ruth, she imagined Sydney to be more like England than Fiji.”
Fiona McFarlane, The Night Guest

“Peter Veldhuizen A true entrepreneur is in charge of identifying opportunities where others see problems or simply do not see them, is in charge of organizing the necessary resources and managing them in order to achieve their objectives.

Peter Veldhuizen Sydney Australia - And although it is common to think that the entrepreneur is linked only to the creation of new businesses, this is not true, rather entrepreneurs are all those professionals who stand out in their work for always looking for the best and most innovative solutions, even those that are part of already consolidated companies.”
Peter Veldhuizen

“Peter Veldhuizen Sydney Australia - These are difficult tasks, but the rewards are great if done correctly.

For example, if you're selling burgers, you must prepare your food in advance so customers trust you when they wait on you for their orders.

You must also keep your food and workplace clean so customers have a positive experience when they interact with you.

Peter Veldhuizen Sydney Australia Entrepreneur
Many people think that being an entrepreneur is easy; in fact, it's difficult and takes a lot of work.

However, it's worth it since the benefits are great. Essentially, entrepreneurs gain wealth by taking bold risks and creating successful businesses. People who do well as entrepreneurs can easily earn six-digit incomes annually without any prior business experience or education.

Peter Veldhuizen That's why being an entrepreneur is so exciting!
Being an entrepreneur is a great way to make money, meet people and do what you want every day.

It's difficult but worthwhile if you're willing to put in the work required to succeed. Consider taking the next step and starting your business today!”
Peter Veldhuizen Sydney Entrepreneur

“Peter Veldhuizen Sydney having a strategy helps you pick the right market and product. You must decide which customers you want to target and what products or services to sell to them.

You must also pick the best way to reach them- through email marketing, social media or direct sales- and the best way to sell to them- at a discount or with extra features vs. selling identical products at higher prices. Peter Veldhuizen Sydney Australia said you can then optimize your product offering accordingly.”
Peter Veldhuizen Sydney Australia

“A lemon tree was nearly universal; other trees varied with climate - almond trees in Adelaide and Perth, plums and apples in Melbourne, choke vines and bananas in Sydney and Brisbane, a mango in Cairns, figs and loquats everywhere. For a few weeks, there was a gross overabundance of fruit and much trading ('I'll take some of your plums if you take some of my apples next month').”
George Seddon

“The Sydney of this time was a different place to the honeymoon city I'd visited with Damien. That one was the crescent of the bridge, the rolling waves beneath the ferry, the shaded streets in The Rocks where we'd bought touristy postcards to send home. Everywhere was so lush, everything blue and green. This Sydney was more or less the space between Campsie and Dulwich Hill. Suburban streets, 7-Eleven hot chocolate, stream, car fumes, perc in my nose and throat, light dancing across the scratched Perspex of train window.”
Jennifer Down, Bodies of Light

V.E. Schwab
“It was a stick-figure drawing. Two people holding hands. A thin man in black and a girl, half his height with short hair, and wide eyes. The stick-girl’s head was cocked slightly, and a small red spot marked her arm. Three similar spots, no bigger than periods, dotted the stick-man’s chest. The stick-man’s mouth was nothing more than a faint grim line.
Beneath the drawing ran a single sentence: I made a friend.

“You okay?”
Eli blinked, felt the cop’s hand on his arm. He slid free, folded the paper, and put it in his pocket before anyone could see or say otherwise…Eli went back the way he’d come. He didn’t stop, not until he was safely in his car. In the relative privacy of the side street in Merit, he pressed his hand against the drawing in his pocket, and a phantom pain started in his stomach.”
V.E. Schwab, Vicious

Peter Carey
“The murders were so ghastly you might think it peculiar that Lucinda, no matter how lonely she might be, would leave her house at all, or, accepting the peculiarity, you may wrongly attribute great courage to her when you hear she had driven, unaccompanied, through streets that were still, for the most part, unlighted. Further, she was by no means insensible to this murderer. She was informed that he was, in all likelihood, a butcher or, the press suggested, an unsuccessful apprentice.”
Peter Carey

“Jeremy Banks Sydney Australia Expert in Leads Generation

Companies can also use generated leads to inform sales strategies such as discounts, free trials and advertising costs.

Jeremy Banks Sydney In addition, lead generation informs companies about new products or features that they can add to their existing products.

In some ways, lead generation is like market research; it helps inform business decisions without requiring direct involvement from business owners.

Jeremy Banks Sydney Australia

Jeremy Banks Sydney Australia Lead conversion is the process of turning a lead into a customer.

This process includes everything from sales tactics to marketing materials and varies significantly between companies (though many of the principles of the process stay the same across the board)”
