The following represents all books currently listed within the genre, Business & Investing:
The COVID-19 lockdowns may be over but virtual communication is here to stay and the companies that can embrace the new technology without losing their core will have the best shot at succeeding. The new normal includes workers that expect greater flexibility, changing modes of interactions, and the decline of geographical limitations.
This has created a unique opportunity for those individuals and companies willing to invest in upping their game:
Companies that embrace the new normal will gain a competitive edge over those who don’t, especially as they are able to attract and retain talent uninterested in the old desk and cubicle routine.
Individuals who invest in excelling at virtual communication will stand out against the multitudes satisfied with mediocrity.
In his newest book, Speak Virtually, best-selling author of Speak With No Fear (now in its second edition) Mike Acker shows you how to go from Zoom fatigue, online meeting boredom, and impersonal presentations to engaging, efficient, and empowering web conferencing.
This book is high on impact and low on fluff. Its four sections represent the key concepts that you and your company must master and teach your team:
Engage: How to effectively connect with the other participants as people, not pictures on a screen.
Attend: How to get and give the most as a participant in virtual meetings.
Lead: How to lead great meetings that people will want to attend.
Set Up: How to choose the right equipment and software and prepare your “virtual office space” for maximum impact.
Designed to be a quick, practical guide that will have a measurable impact by the end of Chapter 1, Speak Virtually is also filled with highly actionable tips:
60 Second Fixes: Quick changes you can make immediately to improve your virtual communication.
Virtual opportunity: Under-appreciated advantages of online communication.
Ergo-tips: Practical advice that help both your body and your communication.
What are you waiting for? It’s not too late to become a “Zoom rock star”— don’t waste another minute in ineffective and impersonal virtual meetings!
"In his debut novel, Ray Green writes with authority and style ... a tense, complex novel set amidst corporate double-dealing and intrigue, where loyalties are tested to the limit and friendship might not always be enough." Daniel Goldsmith Associates, Literary Consultants
For five ordinary guys and one rather extraordinary woman, the only escape from the corporate rat-race is to buy the company they're working for: take it all to a new level, save hundreds of jobs and make some serious money. But it quickly becomes clear that nothing is as easy as it seems. The bid is quickly undercut as twisted corporate politics and personal vendettas take over. When the buyout becomes all or nothing for the management buyout team, it all spins out of control: marriages fall apart, dark secrets are discovered, life savings are spent on the stock market, illegal insider dealing becomes a matter of fact and blackmail, theft, betrayal and manipulation are the new rules of the game. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity turns into a lurid nightmare. Buyout is a gripping and compulsive page-turner about the power of money to unveil the deepest in human nature. It's also a story about chasing one extraordinary dream. At an extraordinary price.
"Another skilfully crafted offering from a talented author. 'Payback' is a follow-up to the brilliant 'Buyout' and is yet another enjoyable and gripping thriller that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat"
Roy Groves is the Operations Director of a successful company manufacturing dashboard instruments for luxury cars.
A fatal motorway fire is traced back to a fault in the product supplied by Roy’s company. Was it a tragic accident or something more sinister? As Roy and his colleagues battle to establish the cause of the fire, and save the company from bankruptcy, they discover that they have been the victims of sabotage.
Eventually it emerges that an old enemy of Roy and the rest of the team has reappeared and is intent on destroying the company and every member of its management team. Once just a business adversary, their nemesis is now so consumed with hatred that he is on the edge of insanity; he resorts to blackmail and even murder in the pursuit of his goal.
Payback is a chilling tale of how hatred can twist and corrupt the human soul.
At fifty, entrepreneur and seasoned workaholic Batoul Ajlouni reached the very height of her career, her middle age, and the lowest point of her life.
The endless passion and zeal she once had for work and life have all but disappeared. Confused and anxious about her never-before situation, she is faced with a life-changing decision to make: Does she listen to the business-executive in her head, tough it all out and continue with the successful career she had spent half her life building? Or does she follow the free-spirit inside her heart, sacrifice everything she has ever worked for, and leap into a place of new hopes and dreams she knew nothing about?
In her timely memoir, Batoul Ajlouni shares her personal and professional venture of self-transformation at the most challenging of times, while re-evaluating priorities, seeking balance, searching for answers to questions and dilemmas we all face at one point or another during our professional journeys.
"Schaubert recounts a mischievous man's eight decades in Illinois's Little Egypt region in his picaresque debut. Remmy's life of constant schemes and pranks and a lifelong feud with classmate Jim Johnstone and the local oil drilling company proves consequential. This is a hoot."

Wow! What a Year! I, too, had an excruciating year to begin with, including COVID taking my storyteller's (narrator) soul to heaven. When the darkness rolled in, through thick and thin, an amazing community was there for me with helping hands. Just as an example, we cracked the code of BIG Publishing houses and achieved something even crème de la crème writers could dream about. Within a few months, thousands read the Gods Must Be Crazy in over a dozen countries, offering over 50 rave reviews (Amazon + GoodReads), and even achieved the #1 bestseller rank in many Amazon categories! Above all, I donate the royalty from this book for a greater purpose to Mother Teresa Mission (Missionaries of Charity).

♥♥♥This book will blow away your preconceptions of the almighty American Empire and its Enterprises. I guarantee it!♥♥♥
This book takes its title from the 1980 comedy film “The Gods Must Be Crazy,” in which an empty Coca-Cola bottle is dropped from a plane onto a community of African bushmen. The bottle is thought to be a gift from the Gods, but after it incites bitter fighting amongst the villagers, the tribal leader decides to return it to the Gods, embarking upon a journey to the end of the world. Through my own metaphorical coke bottle, I visualize the dawn of a daunting new Empire. This book serves as both a testament to the past glories of the current American Empire and a guidebook to restoring Capitalism and Enterprise – before it is too late.
Steve Hilton:” A lot of people say that China wants to replace the US as the superpower ..., Do you believe that that's their intention?"
Trump: "Yes, I do. Why wouldn't it be? They're very ambitious people. They're very smart. They're great people. It's a great culture."
- Fox News interview (05-19-19)
It’s halftime America!
Ay Yi Yai Yi! We are in the middle of The New World Order!
Empires rise, decline, and fall. History has witnessed this cycle with the Romans, the Ottomans, and the British. They have all toppled, and if we are not careful, the US will be the next.
Many of today’s enterprises are a gaggle of debt-addicted extreme financial engineering frogs floundering in tepid snake oil. Unfortunately, many will find their demise in the clutches of IP vultures.
If we don't play our trump cards right, the next voracious Empire - the Middle Kingdom of China - will consume us; sending their errand boys to collect bills from the US and over a hundred other countries that it has economically and digitally colonized since the Economic Tsunami of 2008, through “Belt and Road Initiative” (BRI) to its “Digital Silk Road” (DSR).
“Make Enterprise Great Again” digs into the foundations of capitalism and traces the ideals, triumphs and zeitgeist of the Roosevelt years in order to “Build Back Better” – and to save us from the impending Fourth Reich.
Yeah! It's halftime, America!
"The third instalment of the Roy Groves story sees Ray Green also continue his impressive evolution as an established author. This particular episode includes the usual business-like themes featured in the first two books, but with an added injection of adrenaline-pumping, thrilling adventure ... "
Chuck Kabel is on a business trip to China, visiting the factory to which his UK-based company subcontracts the manufacture of its products. He unexpectedly collapses and dies at the airport before he is able to report on his visit. When the Chinese authorities are evasive about the exact cause of death, the suspicions of his boss, Roy Groves, are raised.
Roy decides to investigate further; it soon becomes clear that there are serious financial irregularities within the Chinese company, and that dark forces are in play, intent on ensuring that these do not come to light. When Roy edges closer to uncovering the truth, he is warned off but refuses to back down, unaware that he is about to confront the Chinese Mafia, who will stop at nothing to achieve their objectives.
When his own family are targeted by his opponents, Roy embarks on a desperate battle to protect them, now well aware that if he should turn to the police their lives will be in even greater danger.
Chinese Whispers is a frightening tale of organised crime and the way in which it uses and abuses legitimate business for its own illegal purposes, relentlessly destroying the lives of anyone who stands in the way.

Book is for YOU…if you…
...are a professional and in a job that you don't like? YOU feel frustrated and exhausted?
…are someone who is going to complete your studies and enter in the working force/ job market?
...feel, you are not living life to its fullest because you are not into a profession that you love?
AT the same time, you love something more than anything else but not sure how to convert that into a career so that you enjoy a fulfilling life.
If YOU can relate to the above scenarios, then this BOOK can be of help.
I have experienced the same dilemma, and, in this book, I have shared some options to align your career to the skills/hobby/art that you have passion for.
I have introduced a concept 'Mission Passion', which is to write a 'Mission Statement' for your own career based on your passion. Every organization has its 'Mission Statement' that provides guideline to steer through its path. The same way, your 'MissionPassion' statement will help you to stick to your 'Passion based career' and not get diverted.
I have covered different stages of careers that anyone can be at any point of time and how one can make a career shift.
There are some nice quotes and narratives of the successful people talking about how 'Passion' can help to live a successful life.
To make things more interesting, and to motivate you, I have shared a true story of a common man, his struggles during studies, in his job life, trying different businesses before finding his true passion and achieving success beyond his imagination.
I know that now a days don't have much time to read so I have tried my best to keep the book size smaller to make it a quick read and worth the time spent.
The main objective of writing this book is to improve life of people who are just living by and not really enjoying what they do and I will be really happy if this book will be of any help to shape up YOUR career and life
